The Kawasaki ZX-10R is the Japanese firm's flagship superbike and burst onto the scene like a seriously wound-up bull in a china shop in 2004. With 181bhp on tap and remorseless handling, the original bike gained a reputation for being a bit of a widowmaker.

The bike enjoyed its first updates in 2006, becoming more user friendly and agile along bumpy British roads. It turned faster and had more stability, making it easier to change line mid-corner. It also came with an Ohlins steering damper as standard.
Don't be lulled into thinking the second-generation Kawasaki ZX-10R is soft though. Despite being easier to live with it still produced 181bhp with ram air and weighed just 175kg - giving rapid straight line performance, capable of third gear power wheelies with ease. Tempted? Of course, you are.
