After a first teaser image unveiled at the end of June, Kawasaki unveiled today the first official image of the 2011 Ninja ZX-10R race bike. The motorcycle is preparing for a 2-day test at the Suzuka race track in Japan where the bike will prepare for the 2011 World Superbike Championship. A road-going version based on this model will also be unveiled at a later date. It is rumored to come with a more aggressive look, a completely restyled fairing and exhaust, new chassis and new engine that will deliver more than 200 HP. Road going model will feature the usual green ninja paint scheme as with all the previous Ninja models.

However when launched the new ZX-10R will have strong competition on the market (Yamaha YZF-R1, Honda CBR-1000RR, and also the Suzuki GSX-R 1000) so is no wonder that Kawasaki will do its best to improve their motorcycle as much as possible.

From top to bottom, this motorcycle looks very aggressive and powerful. It is an amazing super-bike with a sophisticated electronics package which includes different power modes.

Actually based from it looks, you can clearly says that this one is challenging you to race with him. That ninja inspired made me think that this one has full of actions to offer.

The front really looks cool an it gives the Ninja an intimidating look. It would surely be nice to see it in the roads.

Looks great, better styling than the current zx10, just in time to replace my aging 08 cbr1000rr. Never really like the styling of the old 10r.

full fiber carbon, this maybe too lightweight.

Indeed this is a very lightweight motorcycle, which means that this runs at nasty speed on highways smiley

That bike would fly high on the highways, it’s almost the lightest.

Nice design, I bet that bike can fly because of its full carbon fiber body.

Good observation and if you want to go to the sharp end of race bike development which is Motor GP the only non Japanese bike is Ducati which has not won a race this year. However, I love the variety and have owned and enjoyed so many different bikes from all over the globe.

Probably its a good competition with the ZX-10R and Yamaha yzf R1.

Amazing Superbike design, I bet this road-going version would be great. I can’t wait to see the outcome of this latest model.
