I've watched a lot of videos and read a lot of articles on the Supersport, but don't see too much in the way of performance numbers. In one video, I saw the reviewer hit 140 mph I believe. Are there any official 0-60 and top speed numbers?

SS top speed is around 146mph, depending on altitude. I live 4352 ft above sea level and typically lose around 7% in performance compared to when I drive/ride at the coast.

Performance numbers not really indicative of how the bike feels, I suppose that's why bike makers shy away from publishing such details whilst car manufacturers push them.

Go ride it see if it feels quick enough for you. Although it's only 113bhp it's is so light and agile it makes up for a more powerful engine. It really is a joy to ride, the handling is unbelievable. It's easily quick enough to lose your licence....

I did a quick test ride...

The riding position is comfortable and to me it seems just slightly more forward position than the Monster 1200. I'm 6' 1", 200 lbs and the position felt nice, but since the ride was short I not sure how it would be on longer rides, but it seems like it would be pretty comfortable. Some people have mentioned their knee hit the knob on the trellis frame, but that didn't seem to be an issue for me at all. The handling is light and flickable. Braking is good. The road was rather rough in spots, but the Ohlins suspension soaked it right up. The power was really good too since the torque kicks in low in the rev range. I don't think it really lacks power at all and seems to be perfect for commuting. Over all I think it is a great package, so I ended up putting a deposit down on a white Supersport S.

Dragging this post up to re-ask the original question... 0-60 time specifically. I've searched but cannot find it!

Why don't you do it and let us know.
Um, if I didn't say so, I DID search and couldn't find anything... Oh, I get it... You want ME to time it... Well shite, I tried!
Result: 0-100 in 1...2...3...4.... OH CRAP I'M DOING 100!

There are a lot of good articles in that site!
Thanks
0-62 mph is 3.5s.
All I know is that ya better be hanging on tight! 😜

My old FZ6 would do 0 to 60 in 3.2 and the quarter in 11.3 at 120. The SS has similar weight, 15 more hp, and nearly 30 more torque. I'd guess similar to 60, because you didn't have to shift the FZ6, but it wouldn't surprise me if it ran 10s in the quarter.
