I must admit that ZX-10R looks mighty mean,except that really ugly pipe.I hope it goes as good as it looks.

Please get Tom Sykes back onboard as he's the only rider to have done anything with that dog this season

Matt, have you read the way the bike has been developed, first a race bike second a road bike. It was running slicks from day 1, plus they are probably doing an Aprilia, a mass production GP bike for wsbk. probably will be a bitch on the road :-)

Awesome looking bike except I wish they developed a cut slash belly pan exhaust like on their 990cc era ZX-RR, would have made look even better!

Looks like a Showa BPF, fortunately the rider can choose an alternative, I certainly hope they can ! There was a big fuss with these forks but most race bike teams ( like Super sport where they have to keep original equipment ) have used different internals..KTech do a very good kit for the Showa BPF but certainly not big piston, a sort of conversion to previous generation tech', what's known and understood but I believe, through limited resource R&D, they have improved on the original principle now...anyone know in this regard ??
