Title: New 2021 ZX10RR unveiled
Post by: MOzZereLLa on November 18, 2020, 04:47:19 pm
Today at Jerez WSB test.

Looks pretty mean but I'm not sure how much different it is.

I like the look of it. Very H2 inspired in style.

Ive been waiting to see the new ZX10r all year but am massively disappointed. The Race bike with carbon looks ok...but the standard ZX10r looks terrible. Id even go as far as saying that its the worst looking ZX10 i think they've ever made. 2004 and 2016 are in my opinion the best looking ZX10s

only seen the photos of the carbon in race trim, and it looks pretty nice
not seen any other photos, but my thought was it will probably look shit in road trim,

I kind of hope the images are fake. The real ones get released tomorrow (23rd) so we shall see.

Yeah, looks way better than those other pics, still not that great a looker though.

There's more than one reason limited to 500 units  :rofl:

I'm not so keen anymore, and not much changed by all accounts.

Aye looks better in the official photos. Not that I have any interest in buying one.

This video is worth a watch if you're bored. Someone at Kawasaki explains why it looks like it does and why etc

I don't know if i've been looking at it for too long, like one of those 3d pictures from the 80s where after a few minutes of staring at it, you realise what the picture is....

but...I think i like it  :violent1:

Impressive spec....... uglier than the southern end of a north bound donkey though...... as they say

Post by: DaveH on November 26, 2020, 12:26:54 pm
Good video and good to hear some of the thoughts/reasons behind the changes - the increase in downforce while still achieving a reduction in drag is interesting...still not sure about the impact on its looks though...
Title: Re: New 2021 ZX10RR unveiled
Post by: David W on November 27, 2020, 02:54:58 pm
I'm not sure reducing drag and increasing downforce is even possible.
