    __________________________________________________ _________________________________________

    Typical head to head dyno chart comparison between the ZX-12R and the

    Hayabusa. Even though the 12 makes more peak HP (eventually), the Busa

    makes more HP all the way up past 9000 rpm and the monster torque curve of

    the Busa is unmatched! These factors combined with superior aerodynamics -

    proven and documented in wind tunnel comparison tests - helps gives the

    Busa the winning edge.
