That would be interesting. My 2006 ZZR1400 was de-restricted with a Speedo Healer and fitted with a TiForce system. It ran 205.4mph through 1.25 miles at Woodbridge and a 9.84 quarter.
My 2012 ZZR1400 was flashed and fitted with a Brock's system and ran 203.1 in the mile at Elvington. Both bikes were otherwise stock apart from gearing.
I think Pebble is right about the future, better grab a 14 this year if you want one. Rumours about a new 'Busa are circulating and turbo's are being mentioned but I bet if Suzuki do this the capacity will be reduced.
It's like the old V8 muscle cars compared to the modern 2-litre turbo's.
2 litre Turbo versus a V8 is a good comparison Bob and no doubt a sign of the times, smaller capacity, hybrid and forced induction is the future.
Your ZZRís ran some serious pace, was that as far as they could be pushed in that class?
Iím also interested in how much more potential you see in your H2 to further improve in your current state of tune, I assume a longer run than one mile would be needed?
Being completely honest I miss my 2014 ZZR, in my opinion there is no replacement for big cubes. I guess I have rose tinted glasses on because I toured mine all around Europe, loaded to the ground and it didnít miss a beat, the engine simply didnít care & had utterly seamless drive no matter what I threw at it.
I loved the delivery and throttle connection, I very much regret selling it and will almost certainly buy another especially now you and Pebble correctly pointed out the future emissions legislation killing that breed of bike.
I know things have moved on in technology with forced induction etc but I still wouldnít pick the SX over a ZZR, certainly from a price point.
The ZZR performance sport has Akraís, Ohlins & Brembo all standard equipment, omitted from the SX? Premium price but not so much premium kit? (Nice display tho!)
Obviously itís my opinion & Iím sure the SX will be epic, anything doing 200bhp out of the box is going to be, especially with a reflash etc.
But... When I look at it & itís just not doing it for me as yet, certainly the styling doesnít when I see them side by side on that MCN test..
However, a blast on one may change my mind, maybe itís just me thatís just an analog dinosaur in a digital TFT world. Iíll report back, my dealer is getting a demo bike too.
