Kawasaki ZX-10R: "high rpm problems"

Well this story was about as useful as tits on a bull..

Next time try Trev, try and interrogate someone higher up the food chain than the lad who changes the toner cartridges on the printers ;)

Tits on a bull would actually be quite useful because then you could get milk, but still let it shag cows for more calves. It would be a brilliant all-in-one cow/bull thing. I think this successfully undermines your argument. Good work Trev

Kawasaki tuned the motor until it magically makes more than the BM and now they are finding it can't cope.

Just buy...

An R1, and have done with it. Anyone with one of these ZX 10's on order must be well impressed by Kawasaki's open, honest, and frank approach. They obviously think you are all stupid, and wouldn't understand even if they explained. Honourable path, they've followed though - giving refunds. Nowt to do with any potential product liability claims I bet....

Ho hum

Every two years it's more power, less weight, shorter piston skirts, etc.  The manufacturers are happy if the thing works for two years or ten thousand miles, whichever comes first.  Given that most ultra-sport bikes wind up crashing this probably represents adequate longevity.  I don't see why anyone is surprised to see that Kawasaki finally found the limit and went a wee bit over it.
