I am looking for the 2010 Kawasaki Z1000 Horsepower stats / ratings. Could someone please let me know how much horsepower and torque this thing has.

feels like hight 120s or so, I feel that remapping and intake/pipe will help way more than the top sporbikes though. I saw Apro's map at 143, don't know if this is realistic, but it's not out of the relm of reality.

I wonder if it would work to get some much shorter louder pipes. A little extra power out of those shorties can be worth the noise.

I dont think it will make a difference. That muffler is the gusts of the exhaust. The chrome pipes are essentially tips! So if you are looking for power more then likely you are going to need a fully system.

So its a gonna be pricey!

Those are pretty close number to the ones on motorcycle.com. I wonder what his numbers would be with the optimal conditions? I'm guessing its a stock Z1000, right?

my friend just had a dyno pull performed on his stock 500 mile 2010 z 1000
drum roll.
121 RWHP
71 LBS TQ
58 % humidity and 75 DEG temp.
i believe it is a dyno jet dyno and the readings were SAE [ i think].
Interesting...my 2008 with full Akrapovic pipe, PCIII, and airbox mod pulled 118whp/77lbs in 105 degree desert heat.

just looking at the 2010 engine it should make more HP. very radical intake port angle etc. i think kawa made sure this Z 1000 made lots of grunt. one of the knocks of the 03 06 z 1000 was that it lacked roll on punch. even de tuning the 07-09 z 1000 only helped a little. smaller valves, cam, throttle bodies and the servo in the exhaust.
the new zed for sure has a lot of roll on power.

According to Sport rider Magazine...

"The end result is a new Z1000 pumping out a claimed 138 crankshaft horsepower at 9600 rpm (versus the previous 125 horsepower at 10,000 rpm) and 81.1 ft-lb of torque at 7800 rpm (against the old 72.7 ft-lb at 8200 rpm), while scaling in 22 pounds lighter at 481 pounds full of fuel ready to ride."

you know, i was looking at the dyno sheet and noticed something very odd. i've had three bikes dynoed and all three sheets showed hp and torque crossing at 5250.can't see that anywhere on this one. i'm color blind, not completely but have trouble telling colors apart. am imissing this or does anyone else see this. rick:confused::confused::confused:

If you are referring to the Akrapovic chart, it's because they are using the metric newton meter measurement rather than foot pounds for torque.

Here's a converter you can use if you want:
