My 2013 was reportedly seen doing 161... but the stock tires didn't like it and looked like a tar donut with little tar sprinkles all over it when the reported driver was supposedly stopped for a fill up.

2015 pinned down and tucked in tight w/Ivan's, Akrapovic header, Urban Brawlers and 55% rear. Saw 166 on speedo and 162 as max speed on Garmin. Felt like I was power limited but was also right at red line so not sure as I could no longer hear the exhaust, but if I were to make another move for speed it would be sprockets.

In stock form Indicated I believe that is a respectable number and very repeatable.

160 Speedo /154 on GPS was fastest with no upgrades. on my bike.. SaddleBags OFF..

Haven't been to the track with it, and in Australia if you get caught doing those speeds on the road they can take your bike away and crush it.

The N1K has roughly the same specs as the mighty ZZR1100 and that back in the mid to late 90s was the fastest production bike on the planet and good for 174mph 278kph would that extra 100cc give it the edge? With a full system and a dyno tune surely it'd be pretty easy to match 174mph on the Ninja 1000.

Managed 257km/h on 2015 Ninja 1000, I was at redline.


Its nice to know the reversed to most of us Carioles effect in the Southern hemisphere doesn't seem to effect the N1K at all. JJ:D
Does go to show how consistent Kawasaki is though, as even there speedometer error is consistent.




LOL
