    0-60 times

    I went out with my GoPro today and did a couple of 0-60 runs. Best time was 3.58. First run had the front come up just a bit too far so I had to stop rolling into it. Second run was decent, but short-shifted. I was trying not to abuse the clutch, so it was pretty much just a quick rev/go. I imagine I'd get faster if I did it more than twice, but I'm pretty impressed that the bike is really pretty easy to get a reasonably quick time on. Anybody else try this?

    I haven't tried timing it, but the bike will do 60 in first. I'd bet not shifting until redline in first will improve your time.

    It did, I timed it at 3.39 in spite of having to contend with a bit too much wheelie.

    6000 rpm and slip the clutch and lean forward wot untill rev limiter

    warning you might need a new clutch after launching like this since stock clutch is weak

    I always find myself having to slightly "back off" in first due to the front coming up.

    Very few cars can manage an easy 3.5 sec 0-60. And none can for the price of an FZ-09.
    Best bang for the buck out there!

    That's why cagers won't race bikes. (Except for the first time). I had an S4 Audi driver I thrashed get out of his car doing 100 km/h because he thought he had stopped.
