Need some info on the zx12r as far as a riders input and not a magazines. I know that the zx7r is close to the same wieght as the zx12. But the zx7 was way under powered for me. i am looking for power and more power. How well does the zx12 handle on nice curvy roads and I am not talking about the track just some nice cruzing turns. I really liked the zx7 just want more power. i am used to a heavy bike so I feel the wieght of the zx12 will not hinder my ability's to much. What are some of your inputs as far as how well the zx12r really is compared to other bikes. I am really looking at purchasing one of these bikes. My riding buds think I am crazy because of the wieght issue most of them ride the gsxr 1000 or 750's. Just wanted somw e input, I really like this forum.
