Horse power (hp): kW x 1.341 = hp
Nm / 1.35491= tq/ft lbs

I see no mention of a slipper clutch?

Could someone list the dry weights of the previous gen. ZX-10R's.

1 KWatt = 1.35962 Metric HP!

So 147.1kW = 200 Metric HP. Here, in Europe, we use normal figures.

You think KHI official figures are wrong? No they are not

ya ya big numbers. andlets think about this, peak HP doesn't win races, the torque on the way to peak HP does.

and by the way is that true rear wheel HP, or BS horsepower at the "crank" :P

This is crank HP ofcourse ( 08 CBR1K has 178 crank HP).

Rear wheel HP reported (unofficially yet) from Akrapovic - 175 , with Akrapovic full exhaust - 185rwhp.

This is monster.

boy that is alot of rear wheel hp... and yet the comments about the '08's agility keeps coming to mind.

Lots of power and agile!!! "bleeding fast"

There's just no denying the 10.

So the CBR has less HP than the 06/07 10 had... but I'm sure it will handle nicely. :P Its power will have a wide band of torque I'm sure and it will be very pleasant to ride on the street.

The 10 eats children for breakfast and is a beast!!!! If you want a superbike that just ooses inherent anger then the 10 is for you. If you like a sensible bike then the blade is for you.

Peak HP will leave the CBR with the 600's on the straight :P Can you say that the CBR is going to handle better? Can you say that the 10 won't be able to put that monster power down?

The CBR 600 has a great amount of torque over the zx6... does that make the 6 slower... not a chance!!!! Does it make the 6 terrible to ride in traffic... no! Does the CBR600 leave the zx6 behind when riding together... nope!!!

So where is the competition here? Each bike suits a market.

I personally buy bikes according to how they make me feel. I currently ride an 07 zx6r and that friggen hyperactive engine makes me feel awesome! Keep the revs up and lean, thats what its all about.

Sensible aint for me!

ZX10 has always been ahead in "peak horsepower", thats no secret.

Thats not where winnings take place regarding checkered flags at road races, or the best handling bikes on the streets.

And the Kawasaki ZX6R was nowhere near the hottest bike for '07 in its class, for street or for track although yes its always been a great bike!
