New colour for 2017 Kawasaki ZX-10R

Published: 01 September 2016

A new colour scheme of Pearl Blizzard White/Metallic Flat Raw Titanium will be available on the Kawasaki ZX-10R in 2017, joining the exisiting Lime Green/Ebony paint scheme.

Jeff Ware rode the 2016 Kawasaki ZX-10R at the launch in Australia: "It’s not a de-tuned ultra expensive MotoGP replica or a street superbike styled like Lorenzo’s M1, it truly is as close to Rea and Sykes’ machines as a road bike can get. I’ve ridden Tom Sykes’ race bike and I vote the new Ninja ZX-10R as the closest thing we’ve ever had to a real world superbike ever.

"With linear, smooth, controlled power delivery and amazing mechanical grip, the most advanced traction control in class and a sophisticated ABS option this bike will give you security on the streets and huge thrills on the track. If you want to race, just take the lights off, and add a link pipe and race muffler. This is the next level for litre-class machines."
