What could power output on this supercharged 4-cylinder beast be like?
To start, i'm thinking it could be around 150hp, but some people are saying it can be as high as 180hp.

Cycle World published some interesting stuff on boost and power outputs with regards to H2...

ZX-14R 180 hp stock

Add

5 psi: 240 hp
7.5 psi: 272 hp
10 psi: 302 hp

ZX-10R 152 hp stock

Add

5 psi: 203 hp
7.5 psi: 231 hp
10 psi: 257 hp

ZX-6R 107 hp stock

Add

5 psi: 143 hp
7.5 psi: 162 hp
10 psi: 180 hp

So if 200 hp is the figure we think they're aiming for a 1000cc motor would only need a minimal 5 psi of boost to reach that figure, but a smaller 750cc engine would likely need between 7.5 and 10 psi of boost to reach that level. Now we get into interesting conversations about longevity...

nice figures! a friend of mine sent me the link this morning. i was surprised they came up with these numbers. anything over 200hp is just insanity and yes, overkill.

personally i would like to see a supercharged 600-750. i feel as if a liter would be a little much and the rev band would be too short. id be happy if this thing could rev to 14k. although it would make sense for the gears to be tall so you can get full boost before running out of rev room.

the second teaser sounds like a 600cc with an amplified chirp after each drop.

I would tend to agree but it disagrees with Kawasakis narrative of ASS KICKING. Liters are at the pointy end of chassis and suspension developments and they would likely pull intel from their WSBK efforts. Liters are the centre of the hi-po bike market, thats the only reason I see Kawi going that route.

If you want to be the best you better be the best you know ;):D
