Default "hard to draw a conclusion", no clearly defined winner..r

So they wanted to include this bike in the shootout, thats good..
as far as on the track....
I think all the local track record times are held by a rider who rolls on one of these

I am really considering making one of these my next purchase,
but its tough to get off my 09zx10rse

This shootout article compares the Aprilia and the KTM and a Ducati. Winning the lottery would be a lot easier- one of each:

i like the look of the S1000RR, it almost has that cyborg motorcycle look to it.
but that '11 ZX10, my god it looks sexy
Since both bikes have just about the same msrp it would be a tough choice imo

I test rode the ZX10R on the street yesterday with the kawi demo event. It seems so fuggin light! Its as smooth and stable as you would suspect. Obviously I didnt get to really test the bike, since this wasnt at the track.

However, I can say I loved the new tach (lol), ergo felt great for a track rider, overall performance and learned alot about how the traction control levels worked from the kawi staff.

Advanced literbike track riders, you must try this bike out. You will be overwhelmed about this bikes agility and power. I heard the traction control at the track doesnt hold you back
