Whatever it is... it isn't going to be all that impressive.
This bike is underpowered.
You've got a real downer on this bike SandMantis!
Really, what were you expecting? Some people would consider a CBR600RR underpowered but it has double the power of the 500 and less weight.
The figures were well known beforehand so we all knew what it would be like. I've had a CBR600F and VFR800Fi and going to the 500 not long after having much more power isn't disappointing me. In fact I'm sometimes quite suprised how well it does go.
The bike is still quick enough to have a lot of fun on and will do almost double your US 55mph normal speed limit and half again the 70mph(?) freeway limit.
A 14sec 1/4 mile is pretty good comparing it to a car so you should be quicker than most cars on the road.
