When you get it take the engine cover off and there should be a label on the valve cover with the engine (advertised) rating in metric.
I'm guessing 154.5 kw

In the PWC market. Horsepower is how they are marketed, But since the average consumer doesn't know that they are not allowed to sell a production ski that does over 70mph. They assume more Hp = faster.
Which isn't the case since they must now slow the ski down with hull changes or limiters(or even gps governors)
Yamaha just has a better philosophy than the competition. Put out a less Hp motor in a better hull and go the same speed. Where the competition maxes out the motor and shoves it into a barge to slow it down.
If a stock FZR with 210 HP@ 6.5 psi is doing high 69's, Anyone care to take a guess what a lightly modified 250 Hp motor @ 10 psi will be pushing?
75+ and reliable.
I just traded in my 06 1300r with 130 hours of abuse. Dealer checked compression, 120psi across the board. Yamaha reliability

numbers can be very misleading to consumers. so im sure there trying to stay away from that game and market there luxury and better hull designs.
