Hi

looking at a "F" model here in California.
Since they don't offer test ride, I'm trying to compare it to the bikes that I own (Bandit 1200, FZ1, ZRX and ZX12R)
Any definitive answer as to the stock RWHP?
And what about 1/4 mile ?
Have being looking all around the web and could not find any 1/4 mile
Thanks for the help

All the dyno tests I have seen on line (and that appear legitimate) have rwhp in the range of 142-145 or so. With work upper 140s to low 150 seem possible. RK Performance posted their results on a thread here which looks like a good indication of what to expect.

Motorcycle Consumer News in their latest edition reported a quarter mile time of 10.54 for the unfaired version. Its fast.

Thanks everyone

Rusty:

Are you talking about the American magazine or from another country?
Any link to the article?
If correct 1/4 mile, it would be exactly the same than my 2004 FZ1
Motorcycle Consumer News tested it back then and it was 10.55 @ 129.7 mph
Rear wheel HP was 124.9
Little disappointed if true.
Still very good numbers but we are almost 15 years later (test was of a 2001 fZ1)

Motorcycle news 06/07/2015 test rode the F version. 1/4 mile time 10.7secs, top speed 160. 38mpg. ;)
Even more confusing now.

Its hard to believe that if the bike really has 145hp at the rear wheel, the 1/4 mile would be that high.
I know that in the USA, some magazines report it as crank HP.
That would make more sense with maybe be a 130 or so HP at the rear wheel.

Do appreciate the help

I don't know if EU version is different to USA version, but some Italian magazine test a GSX-S and find about 144 / 146 hp at rear wheel.
Acceleration is near to BMW S1000R and better than other naked bike like Kawa and other.

Tomorrow I will scan the page and post here.

Take a look here...

Did find the MCN test

10.53 @ 135.2mph

Rear wheel hp:136.5
Rear wheel tq:71.61 lb.front

So compared to my FZ1 we have 11.5 more hp, 2.5 less torque, same 1/4 mile time ( 10.53 to 10.55) and about 50lbs less weight
With all those numbers I would have expected low 10 in the 1/4

I believe there is a limit how fast a bike can be. Compare the times with R1 or H2 to older sportbikes then I dont think the times are that much different.
If you look beyond 1/4 miles times and look how you do most of your driving then GSX S1000 is probably a quicker bike.

If you find these numbers intresting then take a look here.

BMW S1000R / Suzuki GSX S1000
0-100km/h: 3.3 s / 3.0 s
0-200km/h: 8.1 s / 8.5 s
100-140km/h: 2,9 / 3.3 s
140-180km/h: 2,8 /3.5 s

Kawasaki H2
0-100km/h: 3.1 s
0-200km/h: 7.0 s
100-140km/h: 3.1 s
140-180km/h: 3.0 s

Blair Pennington at Willowbank raceway at a street meet just before Easter did a 10.22 1/4 mile
Blair is State Champion and has won Australian titles so he can get the best out of a bike
