Fittipaldi and his World Champion Edition ZX-10R

Spotted on Kawasaki's Facebook page, this 'Limited Edition' ZX-10R has been created by none other than double-F1 World Champ Emerson Fittipaldi, who is - amongst other things - a Kawasaki dealer in Brazil and who also happened to win his first World Championship in 1972 in a JPS Lotus that had a very similar colour scheme.

Fittipaldi started his motorsport career on a motorcycle, aged just 14, before heading to hydrofoils (surely no-one else at world level has ever raced these?!) and then the more traditional route of karting.

Question is: what do you think to the paintjob?

Very nice... I'm not a fan of fully faired bikes OR the colour gold on a bike, but that looks WELL smart...

Emerson stick to your day job of riding bikes and stop trying to be an artist because you're idea stinks like the JPS cigarette company!
