Not really surprising that it didn't get close to the super optimistic 60 hp I kept hearing people parroting. I guessed it would have 50. 41 wheel sounds like around 46 crank horsepower. Still unknown if there are models with different power levels. Obviously newer emissions standards don't tend to allow sky high compression ratios, this is probably sub 11.5:1. The CBR 250RR had a 11.5:1 CR. My MC19 is at 11:1.

Unknown as of yet, but if it has chain driven camshafts, the heads could be milled to increase compression. The Honda I4s had gear driven camshafts which make head milling impossible. Any decrease in clearance would make the gears bind.
