sadly yes.. 101 to be exact.

"Lost in all the hoopla, however, was the fact that the US version is significantly detuned compared to the European and Australian versions. While the European/Australian RC213V-S models will reportedly put out 159 PS (metric horsepower, or approximately 156 horsepower) in standard trim—an optional “sports kit” that includes a new ECU, different front ram-air ducting, a different exhaust (dumping the catalytic converters and mufflers for full race baffles), quickshifter, data logger, etc., boosts power to “over 215PS” (approximately 212 horsepower), but also renders the bike “for closed course only”—the US model will only put out 101 horsepower according to the US spec page (engine rpm is reportedly limited to 9400 rpm on the US model in order to pass noise emissions standards). It is also stated on the spec page that “the Sports Kit is not available for sale in the USA.”
