Yup - you are right. Before (many years ago) it was called PS (in English hp or horsepower). Kw stands (I think) for kilowat - but I am not familiar how to calculate PS into Kw! It goes, by the way for bikes and cars.

Thank you for your comments. I thought this system was very nice.

By the way, "kw" is not familiar to me. Is it commonly used in German to describe the power of motorcycls? We usually use displacement.

And one more comment here, too.

Concerning Germany: everyone has to ride a motorcycle of upto 25kw without having an accident or receiving a ticket for 2 years, after obtaining the driver's license. After that the license is automatically converted in a regular ("o-gata") license, without any cost! More about this on this German link by the ADAC (similar to JAF):
