    ducati really know what they are doing, their new bike (1199), produces 195 bhp but is only a 1.2 v twin, it also boasts 98lb ft of torque and only needs servicing every 15k miles

    Unbelievable.

    VAG group thought they did well getting 60PS out of their 1.2s engine a couple of years ago, but then they really surpassed themselves and strapped a turbo to it for the 1.2TFSi and got 85bhp - 118lb/ft from it for the A1. I appreciate the engine concepts are quite different but it makes you realise what a monumental achievement it is to get over 190bhp; just immense.

    the thing is, whack a full exhaust system and performance air filter on it, give it a remap and it'll return about 8% more power - that's like 210 bhp !!
