So has anyone heard anything on the 07's ? will there be any changes? I think that the gixxer will have something new out? Just wondering if it would be better to wait for the 07?

I understand that the gixxer will be a carry over as well.

I for one like the the 10r as it is, the only thing is i really hope they dont make the new R1 look like the R6...that thing is insulting...4 of them came into my dealer here, 3 are left sitting there, and the other one is over in the used section...

Dear Fellow Kawasaki Enthusiasts

I like the 2006 design, at least based on the images I've seen. I've never seen an '06 ZX10R in person.

Isn't there a trend toward the smaller, stubby exhausts that extend just a little off to one side just behind the pegs?

I think I'm pretty close to asking my wife if we can get a ZX10R. The last bike we had was a '94 Nighthawk 750 back in '94. I had a 1988 Ninja 600 back in '88 and '89 and really loved it.

May I assume that Kawasaki will offer the ZX10R in 2007 with some sort of Kawasaki-racing-green color scheme?

By the way, if there are any ZX10R owners near Buford, Georgia, who'd give me a short and safe ride on this bike, I'd be glad to give the offering owner studio-quality images of his or her bike!

Sincerely,
Jaddie

Nope...new design. 600 and 750 will be the same but the 1000 will be new.

That's cool! Where did you hear this? I thought they were just getting new colors and maybe a new exhaust, but were going to be the same otherwise.

Here's the break down.

Kawi

07 636-new
07 ZX-10-same

Suzuki
07 600-same
07 750-same
07 1000-new

Yamaha
07 R6-same
07 R1-new

Honda
07 600-new
07 1000-same
I'm unsure about the Honda's. Its hard to tell what year the bike is.

F the new suzuki 1000. I bet that R1 is going to be the shit. The R1 hasn't seen new in 5 years and is still competitive. I can't wait to see the new one. and or race it when the time comes.

It was completely revamped in 2004.

Yea Kawi needs to make some improvements on the looks of the 2006 10R. I can't wait to see how the new 636 looks and performs.

I actually like the new ZX-10 but I'm not to crazy about the colors. For the 07 I would love it if Kawi made the ZX-10 in that ZX-14 red.

Well maybe not go back as such, but at least improve the looks so it's not the ugliest of all the modern sportbikes out there. And thankfully they got rid of that flat pastel looking like I ate too many orange creamsicles shit orange.

It baffles me that a company completely turns it's image around with their litre class sportbike and then sullies it with the next model. I wonder how many sales they lost with the new 10 doing this. I'm just glad i'm not brand loyal 'cause unless kawi seriously improves the bike in looks and performance for '08, i'll be movin' on.
