Look at the advertised horsepower and dry weight of the '03 GSXR1000 and come up with a ratio for the ZX-10R that beats it slightly. I would guess that the weight for the ZX-10R is slight lower than the GSXR1000 so the horsepower will be about the same to slightly more. You will note that they are incorporating features in the ZX-10R like the ports between cylinders that were found last year on the GSXR1000.
God bless those Kawazukis that keep gettin' churned out - that new 4-stroke 250 motocrosser is said to be a hot one. I wouldn't be surprised to see the new 10R be similar in many ways at least in technology and design if not in looks and shared parts to the Gix.
