So if a car can hold 60mph on 15kw why are we pumping 10kw into our bikes to come close to the same thing. The only thing I can think of is we are pumping 10kw and receive 5kw or less at the wheel ?

But on the bike, 10 kw is not their wattage while cruising. 40 mph can take only about 2kw ( for sure less than 3kw) to maintain. Dunno about much faster. 47 mph breifly is my personal best, and I don't recall looking at the CA at that moment.
