You have probably heard this before and from what little I know. Torque is the amount of twisting force an engine can produce. Horse power is the rate at which it can be appiled. With that said, horse power and torque are derived from each other, and are essentially the same entity. Torque and hosrse power numbers are effected by the flow capacity of the cylinder head and its surrounding components.

Hence.... up on the pipe or sweet spot equals max numbers and it takes gearing to keep it there
