    The new K1200RS Turbo is capable of 350hp @ 24 psi but is shipped set for up to 15 psi which gives a respectable 255 hp @ 9000 rpm. For the daily commute here in Southern California we turn the wastegate down to its minimum setting of 5psi. This video gives you an idea of what a BMW will do with only 5 psi.

    Watch the K1200RS Turbo
