Video: Onboard the 2011 Kawasaki ZX-10R

Kawasaki claims the new ZX-10R has more power, more torque, less weight and more effective electronic rider aids than BMW's class-leading S1000RR - but is it better?

MCN’s first ride was at Qatar’s Losail circuit - its 3.4 mile ribbon of tarmac features the usual balls-out fast sweepers, long straight and first and second gear hairpins.

Watch the video to go onboard with MCN road tester Trevor Franklin for some floodlit laps at dusk - we think the strange light makes it some of the most haunting and surreal onboard footage we've seen.
