PICS: Kawasaki's new WSBK challenger

Take a closer look at the Kawasaki's new World Superbike challenger...
Kawasaki has taken the wraps off the bike it believes will transform them into front runners in the 2011 World Superbike Championship.

A crucial bike for the Japanese manufacturer, who pulled out of MotoGP at the end of 2009 to focus on its invigorated Superbike project, Kawasaki are pinning its hopes on this bike to lift them off the bottom of the standings – a position they have occupied since 2007.

Having not won a race since Chris Walker's rain-affected triumph at Assen in 2006, Kawasaki has consistently struggled match its rivals.

However, a new approach to the latest ZX-10R has seen them work 'backwards' to create a race bike before turning it into a production machine. It is a strategy recently adopted by Aprilia for the RSV-4 and it is this that Kawasaki hopes will make the difference.
