Certainly no offence taken, and it's a very good question - but in fairness you'd have to ask the same question of every owner of the likes of Ferrari, Porsche, Lambo etc - indeed of almost any modern sports saloon car - one could argue that anything above (pick a number!) 100bhp is unnecessary on the street.<snip> only one question (no offence intended) if you intend to keep it street, then why so much power?
I can only offer one answer as to why I've gone for so much power - because I want to and I can! Also got two powerful and fairly fast motorcycles - you wouldn't believe how many times I've been asked "What on earth do you want those for?" I smile and think to myself that if they need to ask the question then they probably won't understand the answer!
Life is good, especially when compared with the alternative :chuckle:
