The Strom is designed to run on 95 and it shouldn't be necessary to use 98 to make the bike run properly.
US octane (MON) and OZ/EU octane (RON) is not the same:
87 octane in the USA = 92 octane in Europe
89 octane in the USA= 94 octane in Europe
92 octane in the USA = 97 octane in Europe

The OP is from New Jersey where gasoline distribution issues from Hurricane Sandy and other unknown forces persist in some places, so this may be the only appropriate response:
US octane (MON) and New Jersey octane (MOB) are not the same:
87 octane in the USA = If my answers frighten you then you should cease asking scary questions in Jersey.
89 octane in the USA = You're lucky you made it before we ran out, the highway is jammed with broken heroes on a last-chance power drive in Jersey.
92 octane in the USA = Frankie, Frankie, Frankie. What the f--- does 92 have to do with 87? I can't believe this guy. F---in' 92 ain't even close to 87. Now what the f--- does that got to do with anything? in Jersey
