Immediate impression....Less Ninja....more
Darth Vadar.
Hope it works out. Kawa need to get near the sharp end again.
They should drop that Ninja logo like Suzuki dropped Katana and Triumph/BSA dropped Tridents and Rockets etc.That Daytona bit should also go.
1198R,RSV4,S1000RR,GSXR,R1 etc are more appropriate in modern bike jargon. Tasty shot though.

when bmw came with the s1000rr, people sayd it looks like Yamaha r6.
now the kawa looks like the s1000rr.

I like this bike, big air intake!!

@wallymann....

You're well named mate what is it you don't understand about TEST BIKE

It is not a final production colour....

Kawasaki have put a great deal of effort into this bike with the intention of putting it at the very top of the World Super Bike tree a big ask as the level has moved up two or three steps at least with the Aprilia and BMW bike.

I really hope that this is the bike that can do it....

....if it goes as good as it looks it will....even in black :D :D

I would love to see another manufacturer at the sharp end especially team Green. It's been a long time since we saw Scott Russel and Team Muzzy actually win on a green machine in WSBK.

I love kawasaki but hate the name ninja..lol.. and hate the damn green.. black is good and should continue that scheme to increase sales which should bring in more revenue to the company. To me kawasaki has been the innovator in technology on production motorcycles. I truly hope that their current riders can lead and put Kawasaki in the top 10 on a regular basis, but nevertheless this is exciting for not only racing but the street culture.
