No clever VVT here, but the 200PS R1 is a real screamer with its 13,500rpm power peak.  The red line is just 500rpm higher, at 14,000rpm, so on that measure alone the GSX-R1000 actually beats it by a fraction. It could be a result of the cross-plane crankshaft, which may discourage the last couple of hundred revs that its flat-plane rivals achieve.
