You don't have to routinely cruise at 3 digit speeds to "use" all the HP. A lot of people like the HP as they get a thrill out of the acceleration, not cruising at some high speed. I get a kick out of my high HP to weight motorcycles, but I use the HP for acceleration, not top speed. It's way more exciting, to me, to power-out of a curve with a lot of HP on tap, than to just cruise at some 3 digit speed.

But to each his, or her, own...
