Influences from Kawasaki's ZX-RR MotoGP racer are easy to spot on the ZX-10R, including a 78-scale fairing (with a central ram-air duct), radially mounted calipers, a massive gull-wing-style swingarm and lightweight, six-spoke wheels. Said wheels will carry all-new Dunlop skins, D218ZRs, designed in conjunction with Kawasaki. D218s will debut a new tread pattern created with Dunlop's Computer Aided Tread Engineering (CATE) technology to provide maximum tread stiffness, allowing a higher-grip rubber compound to be used. How do they work? No idea -- we rode on track-specific D208GPs at Homestead, which stuck like glue.
