According to SportRider magazine the 2004's go like this..

Zx 10 = 186mph top speed
R1 = 184
Gsxr 1k = 180
Cbr 1000 = 175


The Zx 10 had the fastest quarter time at 9.92

The Zx 10 also had the fastest roll on at
60-80(2.72)
80-100(2.67)


Is anyone else suprised at how well the zx 10 rode this year?

I was under the impression the GSXR1000 had a better 60-80 number than the 10R. That's what my GSXR1000 riding friends are clinging to now that they are riding such pokey and slow machines...

130 RWHP is more than enough for me, thanks. Hardly ever use it anyway.

Upon looking back at the article, it did, but barely. And that's all it had going for it this year.

Fastest bike answer

The fastest bike on your list is the one with the best rider.

How would we know for not all of us have said makes & models of the '04 irons, besides who would be able to tell their personal experience in the handeling & performance along with speed on the public hwys? Like everyone else we can only go by what the m/c mags say & then who buys & reads all the different m/c mags?

Fact is who have had their 600 to 1000cc bikes up to full chat & long enough to see the needle up at the red line & know exactly how the bike was performing in those said incidents? My guess is not many of us if any.

Back in the days when 500cc was top dog (when 24 to 26hp was IT) then YES some of us knew which was the better.

Hammer, just give it time. You gotta realize these bikes just came out recently. Before long your precious "gixxer " will be losing the the green machine.


And smitty, i was just posting the numbers of what was the fastest in test rides. I didn't think/assume anyone on here would be able to take them to that point.
