Walker tests 06 ZX-10R
Chris Walker and American rider Doug Chandler have just returned from Japan after spending a week putting in laps at a Kawasaki test track on what is thought to be the 2006 ZX-10R.
British Supersport rider Pere Riba is already reported to have completed several test sessions on the bike in Spain and Walker’s success in World Superbike means he is likely to be at the top of the list to test the new bike.
MCN has heard that the tests are designed to try out the geometry on early versions of the bike.
We’ve already revealed that the bike is likely to have some kind of bellypan exhaust system like the recently announced ER6-n and there have been heavy hints from the Japanese firm that the ZX-10R will follow the styling lead of the current ZX-6R.
