ZX12 Engine / ZX10 Chassis
Why? Upgrade the flagship?
Obviously the ZX10 chassis would be lighter than the current ZX12.
I am sure the 12 motor is heavier than the 10. Don't they have similar horsepower? The 12 will have more grunt.
It could become an upgraded "flagship", but it would have to have a clear performance advantage over the ZX10 to remain the standard bearer.
The 12 has always seemed to me to be a softer option to a pure sportbike, but more edgey than the ZZR1200 or the FJ1300.
Don't confuse me with facts, my mind is already made up.
