Max. Power: 44.1kW(60.0PS) /9,000r/min
Max. Torque: 52.9N・m(5.4kgf・m) /6,500r/min

I got that from the Japan Yamaha Site. I also posted the '06 YZ250F power in there YZ/WR250F forum.

I converted KW to HP, and got 59.1HP.

Once again, crankshaft horsepower, not rear wheel. That's about the same as the current model.

Anyway, when the web site is saying that both new YZF's weigh exactly what the '05's did, what makes you think you're seeing the whole story?

Well tell me, what turns better, a elephant on stilts, a Giraffe, or a cheetah? Obviously a cheetah because most of its weight is lower. Why do you think those F1 cars can turn circles around most cars? Because they are lower to the ground, hench, the lower CG theory.

Yamaha did not come out with the aluminum frame for weight savings. How many times does this have to be said. When rumors started back in 03 about the aluminum frames, yamaha made the statement that if or when they went to a new frame material it would not be for weight savings.
