Kawasaki has launched their ZX-10R 2016 superbike in Spain recently. The launch of this superbike marks a new era for the world of sports bike symbolizing Kawasaki’s success in their recent World Superbike Series domination. The new superbike also represents a huge overall update from previous Kawasaki models.
Almost every part of the new bike has been modified or engineered to increase the bike’s physic and dynamics on the road. Despite many tweaks made, the Kawasaki ZX-10R 2016 still looks similar to previous models in terms of its outer appearance. Among the parts changed by Kawasaki include the extensive exhaust piping, electronic components, fairing, suspension, chassis, and engine. The changes in this new bike were inspired by Tom Sykes, the former world champion of the World Superbike Series. Tom worked closely with the Kawasaki’s factory team to develop the bike.
The unchanged appearance of the new bike is a symbol of their recent World Superbike Series domination while the change in its internal component is a symbol of power play and authority. The updated part changes were to enhance the bike’s performance by leaps and bounds. These changes were mainly to maintain the explosive power of the 2011 Kawasaki model while boosting the bike’s low to middle power to increase its acceleration coming out of corners. The new crank and cylinder head installed in the ZX-10R 2016 has brought the bike's weight down by almost 20%. Kawasaki boasts that their newly engineered engine with a lower inertia helps in revving up the bike faster.
The current Kawasaki superbike model is already a beast on the track. With this new model in line next year, it will be a monster incarnate. Only the Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade and Suzuki GSX-R1000 in 2016 can challenge the new Kawasaki ZX-10R 2016 superbike.
