2011 Kawasaki ZX-10R Imagined

UPDATE 2: The 2011 Kawasaki ZX-10R has been out testing at Suzuka, click here for photos and video.

UPDATE: Kawasaki has released a concept sketch and teaser video of the 2011 Kawasaki ZX-10R

MotoRevue’s Jérôme Vannesson has been at it again with his Photoshop mastery. This time the Frenchman imagines what the 2011 Kawasaki ZX-10R could look like, and if the real deal is anything close to this work, Kawi fans are in for a real treat. Well done Jérôme.

With the tail of a hornet, this photochop has traces of an RC8 or YZF-M1 in it, which gives the bike an angular racer look that is very eye-catching. The side fairings sport venting gills, reminiscent of the ZX-14, which then protrude forward beyond the radiators in what could be the ram-air intake. This design element seems to be an extension of what is already occruing on the 2010 Kawasaki Z1000, and makes for an uber-sporty look.

Take note Kawasaki, this is one hot bike that we think would be a hit with the Team Green loyal and new initiates.

    not sure how KTM would feel about Kawi using the RC8’s tailsection…

    Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

  • kawa rider

    well i think that it looks nice but i hope that kawa wont make it exacly like this( it wont be but just saying) because i own an 09 zx10 and i saw the new 2010`s i hope they stick with that idea

    This bike is the best looking ZX10R that I’ve ever seen right down to the color! I use to own a ZX7 and was waiting for Kawasaki to redesign a new one, only to stop making it all together. So I ended up buying a CBR 954 when I was more interested in a ZX10R. Only problem is I must be aw struck by the looks as well as performance. As my 954 became more and more outdated I was in the market for a new bike. A few weeks ago I was in an accident and the 954 was totalled so now I don’t have any choice but to look for a new bike. My choices where to buy the new BMW S1000, which I’m not big on it’s looks but like the power, The CBR 1000 also not hot on it’s looks. Don’t like the R1, heavy and slower then the other bikes. And I can’t stand Suzuki! But if this is the bike Kawasaki is intending make for 2011, I’m putting mine on order!!!!
