2012 Kawasaki ZX-10R revealed

Hint of black transforms the green machine

What do you think about the touch of black to the 2012 ZX-10R?

THIS is the first shot of Kawasaki's ZX-10R in its 2012 form, and although it's unchanged except for the graphics it looks somewhat better than the current version.

Whether it's because the new black paintwork on parts of the side panels and tank help to hide some of the less comfortable angles of the ZX-10R, or because it's a carefully-taken studio photograph designed to make our mouths water, or even purely because it's less familiar, the new colours looks somewhat better than the all-green look of the 2011 offering.

In technical terms, the 2012 offering is identical to the current machine. We've yet to hear whether this colour scheme will be sold worldwide or just in selected markets and whether there will be other colours on offer as well.
