In M trim, it packs 212 horsepower at 14,500rpm.

The bike's redline doesn't come until 15,100rpm, though.

The bike makes use of lots of exotic materials like carbon fiber and titanium.

The engine, for example, uses titanium connecting rods and exhaust valves.

The exhaust is titanium too, and weighs significantly less than the S 1000RR's unit.
