2011 Kawasaki ZX-10R Review


Although seven years have elapsed since Kawasaki introduced its first modern superbike of liter-size displacement, it seems like only a couple of years that the ZX-10R first hit racetracks and streets.

Even harder to fathom – especially in light of the rapid progression of product development in the literbike wars – is the fact that the all-new 2011 Kawasaki ZX-10R is the first ground-up redesign of the master assassin since the ZX's introduction in 2004.

This iteration of the Zed-X received such an overhaul this go 'round, during the 2011 model's recent press introduction at the hilly Road Atlanta race circuit in Braselton, Ga., Kawasaki's Karl Edmondson cautioned the moto media to "forget everything about previous ZX-10R models."

The latest news 10R spoon came last week when a racing version of the 2011 ZX-10R has participated in the test circuit at Suzuka Circuit in Japan on July 7 and 8. The fuel tank is reshaped to move fuel lower and rearward to aid mass centralization. A shorter front-to-back shape for the tank also lends to the bike’s overall more compact dimensions. The new three-piece swingarm is also more rigid, by 18.5%, and is marginally lighter, too.

Just had a chance to check this weapon out at the international bike show up here in Toronto!
WOW Kawasaki has really stepped up with the design and weight balance of this bike.

there is a lot of new technology that is standard on this new bike and its clear that they want to have the ZX10R as #1 bike of this year and who knows maybe more to follow.
The design and front end are such a nice change compared to the horrible previous ZX10R's with those ugly lights and terrible signals on the arms of the mirrors.

Only thing i didn't really like is the look of the rear end and seat. Seems too round for me but probably cause i have an 04 ZX6R that comes to a nice point. I think best rear design of a bike to date is the ZX6R 2004 rear end, but just a bias i guess.

I just wish companies would let you take them out for a test a certain events to actually get behind the bars for a little while.

Cheers to the new ZX10R

They do - Kawi does group rides of new models every year at the big bike events. As long as you are a ROK member and sign up early you can get behind the bars of almost any bike they make

hi ..
this bike world's best bike and its latest is full of excitement..
In its latest model Cylinder intakes have increased volume and are hand-ported, while, according to Kawasaki's Rob Taylor, the exhaust ports are redesigned to reduce engine braking and allow the rider better control over the bike via more precise throttle control. Piston skirt size was minimized for the sake of reducing engine noise. Use of “dummy” heads bolted in place during cylinder boring means a more accurate machining process.
