First impressions from Kawasaki ZX-10R launch in Qatar

Published: 03 December 2007

MCN Road Tester, Adam Child, is in Qatar for the launch of the Kawasaki ZX-10R.

After his first few sessions of riding here’s what he has to say about it:

“You may have already seen the bike at the NEC and know the looks are questionable, but there is no denying that the new ZX-10R is blisteringly quick.

“It’s making a mockery of the long straight here even though it’s over 1km long it’s almost flashing by within the blink of any eye.

“Initial impressions, after a few laps, is the bike feels more compact and smaller with an engine that will scare even the bravest. More later”
