2003 R1 specs...just curious

Hello, I haven't been keeping up with the bike magazines since about 1999, and have missed out on all their tests. I was just wondering what the stock 2003 "R1" 1/4 mile time is (in general), horsepower numbers (an average), and top speed (stock gearing). I have had mine up to 176mph on the dash and it was still pulling hard. I'm not looking for "squid numbers" to throw around/brag about...just hoping some of you have a good idea about the questions, already. Sure would appreciate any answers you may enlighten me with. As stated in the title, I'm just VERY curious is all...thanks.

I know my long gone sold '96 GSXR-750 and my "keeper" ZX7-RR numbers

'96 GSXR 1/4 mile, about low 10.50's
'96 ZX7-RR between 10.40's and 11.00's+ depending on which kit trans is in it

'96 GSXR h.p. said 120 on a dyno/Factory Pro jet kit, full Muzzy pipe
'96 ZX7-RR h.p. about 114-118 estimate (looking for 210-220h.p. with turbo)

'96 GSXR top speed...167 going down-hill
'96 ZX7-RR top speed again depends on trans selection, anywhere from 150mph or so-179mph (aerodynamic limit; I think, as it still had 2000 or so rpms to redline when it stopped pulling).

Again thanks, if you can answer those 3 questions about the stock 2003 R1.
