Took her out fer a spin today... *vid*

All I can say is WOW! This bike is the weight of a 600 and it has more power down low than a 'busa and a 14 put together... Crack the throttle and it's all there, like RIGHT NOW! ... wow!

Very very very cool!

Nice ride, I like them. They are advertizing only 90 ft Ibs of torque and 160 hp. "more down low then a busa and 14 put together"???? I am sure those numbers are at the crank as well. I cant wait to see one dyno'ed to see for myself. Or I will settle for running up on one on the road.

seat of the pants is a pretty accurate thing in this case... a twist of the throttle is all it takes... ear to ear smile!

I'm a torque fiend so it arouses my interest.I'ld be interested in hearing what it felt like in a back to back test with the 10 or with PK and the 636/1098.

Cool, thanks! Stock sucks but thtow the pipe on and that is more like it. Those Numbers still dont scare me though. I will have to go out to Knoxville to find one to play with. Not many people around here will have one.

fit is pretty much the same as the 04 ZX-10R with a slightly longer reach to the clipons, but footpeg position slightly higher and farther back.
