Ok, maybe it was an unfair assessment based on the fact that I was following Mr. French (on his machine) and not really....really getting on it. Sorry Don, didn't mean to give your ride a bad rep.

the GPz has about 110ish hp and high 60s tq stock, the ZZR has
145ish... and mid-to high 80s in torque. When I ride the GPz
exclusively I think, "this bike is fast!" but then I get on the Zed
and go "HOOoooooleeeee cowwwwwww!"

The ZZR revs much quicker also, which makes it feel even quicker. And
it doesn't sign off at about 9K like the GPz... it gets stronger all
the way to redline. At sea level it's scary fast... up here at 5K feet
it's just about enough unless you carry a passenger. LOL

The GPz is smoother, though, and runs cooler and handles better, at
least miine does. And is easier to work on. And lighter.
