On SpeedVision the Honda rep said this bikes makes 165hp at the crank. Damn!!! I also found this article. This would be interesting.

First details of bigger-bore Blade

Honda’s FireBlade is to get a 1060cc capacity and a far more torque-laden power delivery.

The idea is to open up a wider gap in character between the CBR600 and the Blade. The changes to the Blade are due for 2004. The CBR600 will only be given minor updates for 2003 before an all-new CBR600 emerges in 2004.

Honda has made no official comments and no more details of the bikes have yet emerged… but remember where you heard this much first.

Sweet! But I'd almost be scared to open up that throttle wide.. atleast in the 1st gears. And when it's raining.. and cold.. .. or with bad tires going into a corner.

I'll just stick to my R1.. which has enough power to slide both in and out of a corner.. duh! :crash

If Honda does make it's liter bike over 1,000cc I wonder if Yamaha would follow. This could start a whole new wave of liter bikes.
