I know we motorcyclists don't normally compare bikes on 0-60mph basis, but out of curiosity, I was wondering if anyone had ever seen that documented/posted or has measured it themselves accurately?

I don't have a answer for this. I do know when I can go from 0 - 60 and still be in first gear, I'm usually busy looking down the road to see what is coming before I hit second. It is a real hoot to get on the gas. ;) For a big old girl, this bike will git up and gooooo.

0-60 in under 3 seconds per the magazines is the real deal on the KR - even for a ham fisted rider like me.

And you can hit 100 in second if you don't mind bouncing off the rev limiter.

Yep, stock rocket! It gives you lots of chances to go slow, but you just keep missing the clues, zoom zoom zoom!
