2011 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R preview

2011 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R
The 2011 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R should be rocking...!

When they first launched the ZX-10R Ninja back in 2004, it was lean, mean, fit and a bit scary. Over the years, however, it seems that Kawasaki lost a bit of steam with the ZX-10. The pace of development slowed down apparently and the competition – litre-class superbikes from Honda, Yamaha, Aprilia and BMW blasted past the Ninja.

However, Kawasaki might be back in the hunt with the 2011 ZX-10R, for which they recently released a preview sketch on the official Kawasaki Challenge website. With its sharp, edgy styling, carbonfibre bodywork and huge ram-air intake, the next-generation Ninja sure looks exciting. What would we like to see in the 2011 ZX-10R? A 200bhp inline-four, traction control, ABS, fully adjustable suspension and a properly sorted chassis.

Next year, will the Ninja give the BMW S1000RR a run for its money? We damn well hope so!


...and this first video of the 2011 Ninja ZX-10R being tested at the Autopolis circuit provides a glimpse of the excitement that could be in store for Kawasaki fans next year!
