7 July 2010 First action pictures of new Ninja ZX-10R racer

The newly developed Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R race bike has come to action at the famous Suzuka race track in Japan, where a 2-day development test is taking place.
The test riders are Hidemichi Takahashi and Akira Yanagawa. Both riders - successful pro racers - will push the bike to its limits, to gather precious setup information for Kawasaki's R&D department. More tests will be performed in the following months. In 2011, the new Ninja ZX-10R will be ready to compete in the World Superbike Championship.
