I'd still prefer the 10R. It's one of a kind on the road in green. It's eye candy for both COPS and Chicks, both dig it and want it, riders included.

For some reason I cant take this test seriously! They had OEM BT016's on the bike which are fairly crap even on a 600 and then they mention that they didnt have the traction control kick in. I dont think they were doing much with the right hand.......

Agreed. That's why I just bought a set of Dunlop Q2's for my 2011 10R.

Melburnians - if you need your car or bike repaired and/or painted, feel free to get in touch. I happen to know a guy.....

I guess it's all down to how your bike is set-up and how you ride,because personally I don't have a problem with the BT016's.Just put my second set on.
To me they heat up quick and are very grippy and give me good feedback.

Look dont get ne wrong but. I luv kawi (and hate the S100rr too be honet) Lets face it we loose again. At least in stock trim. My question is why do people keep referencing the EPA restrictions. Doesnt the BMW have to meet the same regulations?

The original FAST BIKES test DATA exposed the myth of the BMW having 186hp, it exposes that the BMW does not have RAM air, it exposed that any BMW with more torqure than the 2011 NINJA ZX-10R has the Power Boost Kit ECU fitted. When fitted with this KIT ECU it does not pass the EPA or the European Noise test.
Kawasaki has designed the Ninja to pass both the EPA and European Noise tests. This by a different ECU for each market.

When I see a BMW with more Torqure than the NINJA I recognise that Power Boost ECU is fitted. See this site below for the original FAST BIKE Data. See the Motociclismo test data. Both have the Ninja with more power. Remember the Ninja has RAM air the BMW does not, the BMW needs a lot more power to make up the 10hp the RAM provides.

Not all BMW customers have this non standard ECU fitted, not all BMW customers are aware this non stock part has been fitted to their bike!


This is why we see lots of varying dyno figures for the the BMW, there is a US/Canada specs BMW on Youtube with 167.9hp, a US Spec NINJA on the same dyno has 159.9hp, so in a dymanic test the Kawasaki with less power could pass this stock BMW. Kawasaki has strong dynamic power. Remember to always switch off the Traction before dynoing.

What do you mean the BMW doesnt have ram air. If it has a scoop in the front it has ram air. Ram air is only air being forced into the intake because of the speed of the bike. If anything our ram air is cut down when those stupid butterflies close but I a small screw driver and an hour or two will fix that. LOL
