You can read the full first ride report on the 2011 Kawasaki Z750R in this week's MCN, on sale Wednesday 15 December 2010...
But for now, here's a full gallery of pictures of the bike Kawasaki are pitching straight at the Triumph Street Triple R.
The new 2011 Z750 'R' version gets new 41mm highly adjustable front forks, matched with an aluminium swingarm and remote reservoir piggy-back rear shock.
It also features 4-piston radial front calipers with 300mm petal discs and a radial pump brake reservoir, together with braided hoses as standard.
The new Kawasaki Z750R will cost £6,999 (or £7,140 if you order it after the VAT rise) which puts it right up against the Street Triple R at £7,199. But is it good enough to compete?
Find out in the 15 December 2010 issue of MCN.
