Isn't this a bit much?

I realize that with our North-American mentality bigger is always better, and super-sizing seems like a good thing... but really! How many people really need a 200hp motorcycle? The operative word being need. Kawasaki's new Ninja ZX14 has a 1400cc inline-4 engine that - most people are predicting - will break the 200hp barrier fresh out of the showroom. All this power on a sportbike sounds like a recipe for disaster.

What will they think of next: a turbine-powered motorcycle? Oops... It's already been done ;-)
