Take two identical bikes in the 50hp range, then mod one to produce 12hp more, and it's possible to see a drastic improvement. Then again, you might not have any real world improvement.
The thing is, there are too many variables involved. If you have a boost of power across the rpm range, then that would be a strong improvement. If you end up sacrificing a good deal of power in the low end for a gain in top end, (and usually, it's a larger loss than gain) then you may not really see any true improvement. If you throw in other factors, such as gearing, engine type (and the associated differences there) weight, how the bike is set up, ect. ect. it will come to the point where the only wat to tell is, as MtnShadow suggested, is to ride the two and compare.
