So it's official 200ps which is near as damn it 199hp

Colour dash and what looks like a good amount spec for around £15k

Euro 5 exhaust removal and a tail tidy... What do you lot think?

Is this using the H2 or the H2 SX engine? The specs. appear to suggest the SX engine. Assuming that's the case the a simple reflash will bring it up to 220bhp at the wheel! biggrin

Not 100% on looks in pictures and I expect it to be very very heavy.

Depends on your definition of very very heavy but definitely at the "porky" end of sports nakeds.

S1000R - 162kg - 160bhp
GSX-S1000 - 209kg - 147bhp
Tuono V4R - 214kg - 175bhp
1290 SuperDuke R - 214kg - 172bhp
Z1000 - 221kg - 143bhp
Z H2 - 239kg - 199bhp
V-Max - 286kg - 200bhp

Not far off the weight of my 12R either! scratchchin



Does anyone know the 'charger specs? PSI, pulley sizes etc??

Do we think 250bhp is possible with a bit of tweaking??

Don't forget the upcoming Ducati Streetfighter - 178kg (dry I assume) - 208hp

As for the Z, it sounds like it'll be a hoot, but it still looks bloody awful like all Kwaks at the moment imho.

If you really must do this sort of thing my money would be going on a boosted B-King instead.

I'd have thought so, or at least be able to tweak it up to 230ish

That BMW weight is dry. My 16 to 19 Tuono dropped something like 4-5kg. My 19 is 209kg wet. I'd have to check the brochure but my '16 was something like 213-214kg wet

Doesn't make much difference but just an observation

Agreed, not a fan of the styling myself, but certainly will stand out in a crowd.

Interested in the new zxr25 they have. 250cc inline 4 and (reportedly) 45 bhp. Light weight screamer?.

ooooo I didn't know they were bringing that out, sounds like a hark back to the old grey import style 250 and 400cc IL4s

It'll be interesting to see what the new one revs to

I've only seen the power figure from one source so might not be right, but yep, back to the old grey imports.
