Motorcyclist At The 2011 Kawasaki ZX-10R Press Launch

Riding The New Ninja

Its been 3 years since the ZX-10 underwent any changes, but that doesn't mean the gearheads at Kawasaki have been on vacation. They've been hard at work redesigning the entire bike - from the engine, frame and bodywork to the wheels, electronics and suspension - in order to elevate their superbike to the top off the pile.

I'm sitting on the bus on the way to Road Atlanta Raceway in the Peach State for the bike's introduction. The sky is clear but the air is chilly, and I imagine it will feel quite cold at 170 mph! After today we'll have a much better understanding of what this electronically-controlled superbike is capable of, so stay tuned for a full story.
