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.
