Here is a speed run video from one of the American customers of the 2011 ZX-10R who has speed tested it. Although you don’t see any traffic in the video, the run has been done on a public road. The bike goes on to reach a top speed of 187mph (around 312kmph) and seems good for a bit more.
The new Ninja ZX-10R is touted to be Japan’s reply to the formidable BMW S1000RR. We are waiting eagerly for one of the international magazines to compare the two and let us know whether it actually managed to match up, or exceed the German machine. In the meantime, watch this exhilarating video.
