Here’s the 2018 Kawasaki ZX-10RR

If you were wait­ing for some big changes to the big Kawasaki (like, a su­per­charger for ex­am­ple) you’ll have to wait a bit more. The RR ver­sion is get­ting some mi­nor colour changes. To pretty mi­nor things.

Laced with track-ori­ented, trick bits like its race prepa­ra­tion-ready cylin­der head, sin­gle seat, light­weight spe­cially forged March­esini wheels plus KQS quick­shifter, the 2017 Ninja ZX-10RR was quickly adopted by race teams and com­mit­ted track day fans around the world.

With a world cham­pi­onship un­der its belt in the hands of Jonathan Rea, the 2018 bike stays vir­tu­ally iden­ti­cal to last year’s bike with what Kawasaki calls “two up­dates for the com­ing sea­son”.

These amount to not very much at all other than the reser­voir can­is­ters be­hind the lower part of the front fork legs go­ing from red to sil­ver and at the top of the fork leg, the fork top cap is now green where it was pre­vi­ously also red.

So the dif­fer­ences be­tween a 2017 and 2018 ZX-10RR amount to lit­tle more than some­thing for the real nerds to no­tice.
