I know we all love the zx10s here but I have an honest question...when you look at the shootout DYNO test...you can see that the midrange does kind of suck on the zx10. I have a GEN3 so I am already used to this anyways....simply stay above 7k RPM and you are all set. My question is...with a reflash, I know the U.S. ZX10r GEN4 will make more in the 170-175hp range than whats shown here....160ish, BUT does it help the midrange? If it does, how much? Will it be closer to the GSXR? I have to be honest...I was DEAD set on the 2011 or newer zx10r for my next bike but since it will mainly be a street bike, that midrange of the GSXR is awefully tempting. I know sprocket changes help with the zx10, that's what I did with my GEN3 but look at the GIXXER's torque curve as well, stays nice and smooth and is higher than the zx10 for the whole band until the top end. I know the GEN4 zx10 kills everywhere else, suspension, geometry...very lightweight feels like a 600 supposedly, but as stated, since this will be a street bike I am now torn lol
