The ZX 14

Hey guys its been a while. Heard about the zx14 a while ago and Im wondering if its really gonna rock the bike world. It looks like it just might. The hayabusa leads the pack right now, but this 1352 cc beast will be more powerfull. Does anyone know what this things 0-60 is gonna be?? Ive seen lots of pictures and it doesnt look all that great. Just a plain body style nothing crazy.. But the 2006 zx10 however looks awesome..
What do you guys think?

I sat on a black one and a red one at the motorcycle show last month. The red one is beautiful and it fit me perfect. This is my friend Neal sitting on one.

can u imagine a faster bike then the busa? from a factory, do we really think they are going to produce a faster bike? i kno whats the diffrence from a 190 to 201 mph fall, still its hard to think of them making a faster bike, i woul dlove to be proved wrong, but anyone think we are reaching the limits of production bikes?
