I have wondered what the sensation would be like to have the stock power of a ZX-12r in the frame weight of a ZX-9r. In just about a week, I will see for myself. The thought of 160+ rHP gets my heart pounding. I do own the fastest production bike ever made. Of course I'm talking about the Y2K ZX-12r (red). I really enjoy the powerful sensation of this bike. I have concluded, balance is my ultimate goal. Having a 2001 Muzzy modified ZX-9r to be a 2002 ZX-10Rr is the best I can do for now. The Muzzy mod route is very affordable and meets / beats the competition.
As for the future model OEM ZX-10r, we all can just wonder.
