    Idk,they are big long distance tourers I think,the lighter zx10r is more sports/track focused

    You're probably referring to the ZZR1200 rather than the ZX12R.

    Don't think so although I may be mistaken.It is this very bike taken from his FB account...

    Edit; apologies for the crap picture... Ninja though, that's definitely a ZX12r then isn't it? Not sure what the other differences are...

    a 1.4 litre engine is heavy, and it isn't alowed i nany rece class so doesn't benifit from all the money spent designing 1 liter super sports.

    they're only real reason to exist is to go fast in straight lines, ier two up foring on the motorway/autobhan.

    they're never going to be agile and corner like a sports bike so why bother making them light when you can make them big heavy and much more comfy/durable.

    theyve got the extra ccs to keep the speed.

    I just sold a a1 zx12r with full titanium akrapovic the difference was night and day compared to stock pipe performance wise, the zx12r is restricted at the headers on stock pipe adding a end can does nothing apart from sound.

    I also own a zzr1200 which is a pussy cat compared to the zx12 with full system.
