I would go for the bmw, I know the tunning (Im a tuner myself) is a nightmare, and woolich has told me it has no plans to tune bmw, BUT the bike will retain value more than the new kawa...
since its another platform.

just for that.

2019 Has black cases (as opposed to the metal/silver ones on a 18) - not sure if it is actually case saver a la GB Racing, a change in the metallurgy or simply new paint used on the covers. *Shrug*
2019 Has red accents in the KRT livery on the belly pan with red and black accents on the upper fairing

That looks a lot better with paint on the engine I never was a fan of the unpainted look, what ever the reason was i hope it doesn't return.

The ZX10R is an amazing machine. Since 2011 the ZX10R has been an absolute monster in the hands of experienced riders. Watch this video intro discussing the legacy that is the Gen4/5 ZX10R...
The biggest set-back to these machines is the rider and probably some minor geometry restrictions. I increased my shock length a little and swapped out the suspension and the bike is a completely different animal (in a good way). To me, there's just more dynamics and communication with the road vs riding on stilts like I felt with the stock suspension.

When in doubt... send it!

I dont see how 190 WHP could be slow or under powered. They only appear to be fat (which i actually like) there is a few guys on here running sub 400lbs street 4th gens. one to be exact is at 365
lbs with mirrors, lights, abs and horn. so with the added electronics and track trim its probably not going to weigh much more than your 600.
Good luck with the new bike.

Yeah like Shawn says. The bike appears to be fatter than it actually is. My old Gen2 is the same way in appearance. sure it looks a lil fat and has a few more pounds than a Gen 1 but it's got plenty power for the street.

If you're racing your Gen5 I think you'll be happy just as most others are. I don't think you'll be disappointed and if so, let me know I'll take her off your hands for a ZX-10r.net member discount
