I was looking at the Triumph site and reading the specs for the ST.
·_Maximum Power
120PS (118bhp) at 9,100 rpm
·_Maximum Torque
100Nm (74ft.lbf) at 5,100 rpm

But, at Triumph America's site the specs read thusly:
955cc, in-line 3 cylinder
118bhp maximum power
50.5 ft. lbf maximum torque
I can't imagine a that both bikes could put out the same amount of HP and have such a difference in torque. Isn't HP a byproduct of torque? This has to be a typo.

nah, I dig Pikachu but he PEAKS at 42ft/lbs. 600cc I-4's just aren't the ideal configuration for torque. According to my dyno chart, the 'Tona hits that mark at 2600 rpm and never looks back, comming to a crescendo at 71 ft/lbs. When you're 200+lbs you tend to hold a greater appreciation for the latter...:p

It is probably measured at the crank and not at the rear wheel. 118 sounds like alot of power for a sprint.

That's what they have now, as well as the SP3. That is the newest iteration of the Daytona's engine detuned a bunch to be in the Sprint and SP3.
