Interesting info. What I would like to see is the ZRX1200 compared to these two beasties.



And that is what they all are. BEASTS! Makes me wonder how far the bike manufacturers are willing to go in the power game.



How long before we see a proper shootout between these machines?



That said, I can't wait to pick up my FZ-1 in the coming weeks.

Very useful info! I'm a bit surprised at the numbers for both bikes- they're about 8-10 HP higher than I expected. Despite the FZ's advantage, I'm still gravitating toward the B12. The FZ's got (mostly)the right ingredients, but somehow managed to come out ugly. And for the price difference I can complete the package with a set of Givis and maybe a pipe+jetting.

Would like to see how these two would fare vs each other in a top-gear roll-on. Unless I'm misinterpreting them, the FZ's torque numbers seem to indicate that she would out-pull the Bandit, especially at lower rev ranges.

Never mind! I misread the numbers.

I think the rules should read that the author can't be included on the first post. Therefore, in reality, you didn't get the first post.

Default ZRX should do well

but it would be great if Kawasaki would bring over the ZRX-1200S with the half-fairing, to really compete with these two bikes.



But either way, they both look like great fun, with somewhat different personalities. Its shaping up to be a win-win situation, plus the Honda Hornet 929 and the BMW R1150R coming into the picture will help keep competition high and prices (hopefully) down.
