New 2011 Kawasaki ZX-10R versus 2010 Kawasaki ZX-10R: specifications compared

MCN has got its hands on the new Kawasaki ZX-10R’s specifications. We’ve picked out the main elements and compared them with the current bike’s details. We estimated the power at 185bhp based on what the project leader told MCN last week – he said they had matched the BMWS1000RR. The price of the ZX-10R has yet to be announced, but we’ve...

It's a looker

From the picture im not too keen on the looks of the road bike, although the race bike looks mint. 

2010 ZX10 looks better.

HOPEFULLY

it will trash the bmw on handling, speed, and power.... as i am sick of hearing about the s1000rr week in week out in the MCN...

and if it does trash it, the zx10 should be in every week just like the bmw has been..

the exhaust does it no favours though...

looks a superb bike!  and i hope it does knock the bmw off top spot.... i agree with busa, the bmw is in the press all day long, so will be good to read about another bike.... but the thing im looking forwards to is see what yamaha, suzuki and honda have come up with!!!

New 2011 Kawasaki

Looks good I think.... I'm sure it will be better in the flesh. However, from the above specs it looks like Kawasaki still haven't addressed the handling issues as with the 2010 model such a large trail combined with hard suspension makes it harder to load the front on turn in; resulting in a lack of front end feel and grip.  That combined with huge horsepower, will just excacerbate that the current problems that Kawasaki has on the new bike.    If I am right its a great shame as it looks like the new bike finally has the goodies that I have been waiting for. I wonder if I bring the trail down to 98 mm............
