From what John has posted it looks as though it is the same engine with just a different exhaust section (might be a catalytic converter) and then different air horns over the throttle bodies. For anyone that got one getting the HP back to the others should be easy, a few parts and a re flash.
The 98 hp model is for countries that restrict HP to less than 100 or register and tax vehicles based on HP. If you live in one of these countries you know it, it's not a secret. If you don't know about a HP limit in your country then you have a 115 hp version (unless you bought it from a broker, then you better check for the "A" in the VIN)
Here in the states we typically get taxed or have our insurance rates based on displacement. Pretty sad (for them) that a 1450 cc softail pays more insurance than an 1130 cc V-Rod with insurance companies that don't have a clue.
The displacement size ratings that the insurance companies use is pretty comical. I am paying $100 a year less for my brand new V-rod than I was for my 7 year old Fat Boy. Thanks Progressive, yet another good reason to waive goodbye to the big twin.
OK, I downloaded the parts manual myself, located the bits (page 29, and 33), rang my dealer. Waiting for an answer, but as I understand it, and I will check my engine number, I have a 120 HP rated Rod
I'm almost 100% sure its tax & insurance related. I know that some countries in the EU have some pretty hefty tax/insurance hikes for bike above 100 HP and some even offer both versions (above/below 100 HP).
Not that I really care - not in the EU and I have the 115 version, thank ya very much
