Kawasaki ZX-10R Acceleration Times and Top Speed Data
04-05 Kawasaki ZX-10R top speed and acceleration data through the gears accompanied with Dyno Curve and Thrust Curve graphs.
04-05 Kawasaki ZX-10R Dyno Curve
The 04-05 Kawasaki ZX-10R produces 159 horsepower at 11900 rpm and 79 ft/lb at 9900 rpm. The ZX-10R has a smooth and linear power and torque delivery that gradually builds. The engine is very impressive but does lack a little low rpm drive versus its peers of the time as well as some new Superbikes that came before it.
04-05 Kawasaki ZX-10R Thrust Curve
The 04-05 Kawasaki ZX-10R has exceptionally long gearing and can almost reach a real 100 mph in first gear. The graph shows in-gear acceleration plotted against speed.
The ZX-10R offer good thrust in all gears but due to not making class leading power and torque in the low and mid ranges the engine is not as responsive and requires lower gears versus competitors.
This is exemplified by the ZX-10Rs longer than average gearing. Despite this the ZX-10R due to its light weight and radical chassis specs makes for a very explosive and accelerative motorcycle.
The ZX-10R is an extremely fast motorcycle even by today’s standards. Despite the long gearing 0-60 mph is achieved in 3.15 seconds. 0-100 mph in 5.44 seconds and 0-150 mph in 10.39 seconds. The ZX-10R can do 0-100km/h in 3.3 seconds and 0-200 km/h in 7.47 seconds. The Quarter Mile is also a very impressive 10.21 at 148 mph terminal speed. Top speed for the 04-05 Gen 1 ZX-10R is 185.2 mph.
