I read it late yesterday and saw that line - loved it, brought back memories of riding one of those beasts. This was not the superbike shootout article I remembered, it must have been in Cycle magazine where they took them all to the drag strip (as they did in this article) and were running them repeatedly all afternoon long, tweaking little stuff and trying to get the best runs out of each bike. It also might have been a year or so earlier, as I recall the CB750 running a high 12 second quarter mile too. They were using small canister lawn sprayers to spray water on the engine to cool down the only air-cooled 2 stroke (in that article, I think it was the H-1) when that funny statement was made. Odd how stuff like that sticks in your head over the years... like the TT Racer reference in a different issue, where they were actually talking about tavern to tavernthey did say that "handling wise, the kawasaki was as confidence inspiring as a chopper", Lol. they were very impressed with the honda 750's brakes.
