"Last year I picked the ZX as the bike to beat and it appears Suzuki felt the same way," notes Chamberlain. "The new GSX-R, although vastly different in style and structure, performs almost identically to the ZX, only slightly better."

The ZX and Suzi engineers work together, for same [email protected]!!! - it would be a fair guess that the zx and GSXR are going to be each others equal for a few years.....actually - it's guaranteed....

They disolved the "legit" partenrship, but have a gentlemans agreement to help each other out against the big boys of H and Yam.
It's not in the same league as you mentioned - that was down to debadging bikes and swapping stickers, But this "agreement" was simply to help development. I know Suzi handed Kawi the keys to the K3 1000 so they could performance test against it before releasing the ZX10. You can betchya last $ that there aint no way the ZX was going to be released in the guise of not being at least equal, and from now on - Vice Versa....
