Only yesterday we brought you a detailed story along with tons of images on the 2016 ZX-10R. The Kawasaki Litre Class Supersport has undergone some big changes on the engine, along with sweeping changes having been made to its electronics and chassis. The looks have changed, too, but we like the current gen version better over the heavily stickered, busy scheme of the 2016 version.
Peak power output on the motorcycle remains unchanged over the version it replaces, though the peak torque output has marginally increased. Instrumentation is new, and now accomodates all the electronic wizardry the new motorcycle has received, including a new 5 mode traction control and new ECU. The bike also gets major modifications in its suspension and exhaust setup. The brakes have been overhauled too and now feature big twin Brembos up front which are the same units which are used on the much more powerful Ninja H2R.
Check out the official video of the new motorcycle in action below. Do let us know if you think the 2016 10R would measure up to the new R1.
