2018 Kawasaki ZX-10RR revealed

ACCORDING to the adage, if something isn’t broken, you shouldn’t fix it.

It’s wisdom Kawasaki seems to subscribe to, having just revealed the 2018 incarnation of the WSBK-winning ZX-10RR with two ‘colour changes to components’.

In a press release showing neither of said components, the firm said: ‘With the considerable positive impact of a world championship under its belt, the 2018 model features two updates for the coming season, both of which involve colour changes to components. The reservoir canisters behind the lower part of the front fork legs change from a red appearance to silver. At the top of the fork leg, the fork top cap is now green where it was previously also red.’

Kawasaki Motors Europe Director Morihiro Ikoma said: “In the hands of our KRT riders, Jonathan Rea and Tom Sykes, the Ninja ZX-10RR has achieved Superpole wins, fastest laps, race wins and, ultimately, the 2017 World SBK title in its first year of production.

“For motorcycle racing teams, track day enthusiasts and committed road riders, the 2018 Ninja ZX-10RR represents a great performance package and perfect base for racing success”.
