| 2004 Kawasaki ZX-10R|
From Kawasaki's press material:
Kawasaki storms into the 1,000cc Supersports segment with the all-new ZX-10R. The ZX-10R is a high performance, race-oriented Sportbike that is purpose-built. Developed with racing in mind, the ZX-10R focuses on high performance, lightweight power to weight ratio and radical styling. The ZX-10R offers the highest performance in its class. It offers number 1 performance in racetrack agility while also providing a thrill ride for twisty road riders. Combining high technology with the latest innovations, resulted in a lightweight, slimmer, more compact 1000cc Sportbike with handling characteristics similar to today's premier 600 Sportbikes. Aggressive Sportbike styling with dual headlights, central ram air system and bodywork that is narrower than the ZX-6RR is evident that the ZX-10R is light, agile and fast.
Destined for the racetrack in 2004 as the base for Kawasaki Road Racing's assault on the AMA Superbike Championship with Eric Bostrom at the controls, the ZX-10R will take its place as the flagship to carry the Kawasaki performance heritage into the future.
