Kawasaki unveil 2011 ZX-10R WSB racer

Next year's official WSB racer goes on show at the Nurburgring

KAWASAKI have unveiled their self-hyped 2011 ZX-10R race bike at the Nurburgring circuit, Germany.

The images give us our best pictures yet of what the 2011 Kawasaki ZX-10R road bike will look like.

Here's what Kawasaki have to say about it:

The all-new Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R race bike has been unveiled to the international press at the
Nürburgring racetrack, in advance of the full launch of the production machine in early October.

The new Ninja ZX-10R race bike has been eagerly anticipated by everyone involved in the Superbike
racing project for a while now and therefore the Kawasaki Superbike Racing Team are extremely keen to get started with the new Ninja ZX-10R.

Steve Guttridge, the Race Planning Manager from Kawasaki Motors Europe, said of the new bike and the timing of the ‘sneak preview’ of the racebike version of the Ninja ZX-10R, “The new race bike has been eagerly anticipated by everyone involved in the Superbike racing project for a while now. The PBM team have evolved and restructured continuously in order to be in a position to utilise the new bike's potential to the maximum next season. As you can imagine the Paul Bird team are ultra keen to get started with it and so who better than the team itself to help us show the first edition of the race version of it here at the Nürburgring?”

The new superbike has already been put through development testing by noted WSB racers Akira Yanagawa and Tom Sykes, where the pairing, thankfully, found the new machine to be more responsive and better handling than the existing 10R.

The production model will be launched at the Intermot show in October.
