About power boost: a) motor was riding at 61+mph up from 55mph b) air force to overcome is proportional to *square* of speed then: power increase shall be sth like 26% not 12%

If you would like to see fuel injection performance, check out the Harley VROD (VRSC)which features Electronic Sequential Port Fuel Injection (ESPFI). Oh yeah, it has been around for years.

Fuel injection is already used on a number of high end motocross bikes. Those are relatively small engines albeit pumping out 50+ h.p. But this stuff isn't really new. It's just certain industries trying to increase the market size (oh, right I meant to help the environment.)

Congratulations Dayun on your magnificent technical achievement. As a Michigan resident, I'm pleased that ElectroJet of Brighton played a role in that record-setting run at Bonneville. But now that motorcycles are under the gun regarding emissions, what about safety? Will 150 cc motorcycles and scooters be subjected to ever more draconian safety as well as emissions regulations?
