Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R new design
The Kawasaki Ninja H2’s sharp design cues seem to have been the inspiration behind the looks of the new Ninja ZX-10R. The new ZX-10R and the homologation special, the Ninja ZX-10RR sport a similar looking front-fairing as the H2. The twin LED headlamps are placed on either side of the central ram intake tunnel and overall, the new ZX looks aggressive. The rest of the fairing, tank and tail section looks similar to the present model. Also note the bright Kawasaki green paintwork on the ‘RR’ model.
The pictures also reveal a larger instrument panel and it should feature a colour TFT display. It may also get Bluetooth connectivity features.
