2008 Kawasaki ZX10 Photos & Specifications

2008 Kawaskaki ZX10 - Specifications & some information from the Kawasaki website.

Kawasaki engineers aimed for an ideal superbike with engine and chassis performance capable of satisfying professional racers, combined with top-notch streetbike qualities for mainstream riders.
The designers didn’t rest when it came to styling either. Given great freedom with the 2008 ZX-10R, their efforts are illustrated in the clean design with superb fit and finish. While shaping the rear frame, tank and seat to offer improved ergonomics and increase the rider’s contact with the bike, they also refined its aerodynamics from a new front cowling to the sharp, minimalist tail cowl. The result of these efforts is a slim and compact package with the presence befitting its Ninja name

Originals numbers that were posted for HP with ram air have to be bogus. Just saw a test track clip with an 07 r1 next to it. In the straights the r1 got him by atleast 5 bikes...and top'd out at 189.

Bird beaks tend to cut throught the air really good and cause damage to the prey. I need to test ride on at the track

Re: 2008 Kawasaki ZX10 Photos & Specifications

Honestly, i dont like the look of it.

Bikes are loosing their character and becoming more like GP bikes. Personally, i would rather have the older version of the ZX10R, looked much better.
