Their website sucks. Can't I just look at their bikes?

Maybe the same guy who did the math on HP designed their website.

The S4R is a nice looking machine for sure, but the new Monster I'm interested in is the 695. I'd be interested in seeing how much of a step up it is over the base 620.

Default shootout

I like it a lot, but I would still like to see a shootout between a pre-WWII Whizzer (motorized bicycle) and a new one. The old ones went 35mph and the new ones go 25mph. Do you suppose this is true? Does anyone care?

that's because the new ones are 'tuned for torque'

It's "metric horsepower" - gotta divide by a factor of 1.6.........
