Kawasaki ZX-10R

Don’t let appearances fool you. The new 10R might not look that different to the outgoing model but if you're focused on looks, you're missing the point. What really matters about the new ZX-10R is invisible to the eyes.

ZX-10R review
Submitted by Ben Cope on Wed, 20 Jan 2016

THEY say appearances are often misleading and the 2016 Kawasaki ZX-10R is a good case in point.

Don't let your eyes fool you, the new 10R looks similar to the outgoing model but almost every component has been changed in Kawasaki's quest to make a better, faster and easier to ride 10R.

Clearly visible on the new 10R are the new Showa Balance Free Forks, Brembo M50 brake calipers and revised tail unit, but you’d be forgiven for thinking everything else is pretty much as it was.

In fact, the only major components carried over from the previous model are the wheels, fairing mid-sections and the tank. The 2016 model's familiar look masks a whole host of changes and tweaks designed to improve the existing package.
