Both! Wheelies and top speed.

Standing on the seat will make the wheelies easier to learn.

Gearing and tuning you might be able reach 200mph.

0-60 sub 3sec. but don't worry 1st gear red lines at about 90mph

Looks like you need to find some training videos, might search
on youtube for "Ghost Rider". He'll show you some tips on
how to do high speed wheelies past the cops and flip them off
at the same time.

Have fun. As the saying goes...

Alright, you got me. Anyways, I am thinking of buying an 05 ZX10R. I have had an 04 ZX10R before. I just moved to the east coast.

This one is pretty much clean except a few minor scratches.

20k miles.
AFAM 17 front and 39 rear sprockets; D.I.D racing chain.
Kyle USA racing clip ons and Spyder Grips.
BNC Racing Air Filter.
Power Commander III with USB port.
Titanium Akropvic Exhaust (slip on).
Ferodo racing brake pads.
Full Repsol Synthetic oil changed with K&N Air filter every 1500 miles.

The seller is letting it go for $3500 cash. I know personally that 20k miles are not alot and the seller is the original owner of the bike and only selling because he is moving.

Is it a pretty decent deal? My last ZX10r I bought it for $4200 with 11k Miles.
