I rate my gl1200 at 7 grins with the boss hoss at 10 (0 to 60 in 1.9 seconds).
Otherwise it's rated 94 hp (70.1 kW) @ 7000 rpm.

I didn't think it was that much, but it does seems faster than a stock Harley dresser of a friend of mine and almost as fast as my 100 hp H-D. Must be where the torque figures comes in the rpm ranger.

I think it looks fast with that faring design too.The power curve on mine is more on the lower (2500-4500)end than my 1100(3500-5500).
