Kawasaki ZX 10R 1000 2013

Victorious and dreaded in World Endurance (three victories of sharpened with the 24 hours of the men and doubled the gold Bowl + Mans in 2012), untouchable in WSBK Superpôle, in top form in French Superbike, ultra-powerful and extremely effective, adopted by the pilots of the MRT, Kawasaki ZX- 10R is the sporting Japanese woman of reference. Exit in 2011, large the Ninja polishes its part-cycle for 2013. Lastly, the evolution relates to especially the shock absorber of direction.

Always entrusted to Öhlins, this small appendix controlling the order of the nose gear from now on is managed by electronics (Suzuki has used a similar method for its GSX-R for a few years). According to speed, acceleration and deceleration of the machine, the power station of edge adjusts the adjustments of the amorto. Hear what to soften the direction at low speed or to make it much firmer at high-speed without the pilot intervening (and decentralizes).

Each year, Ninja 1000 is affirmed like a mixture of threat, effectiveness and competitiveness. Its glance frames a new air intake which means much with it all alone: the mouth in triangle, feature characteristic of the Ninja since their revival in 2003, will have lasted a decade almost but gives here way to strange lad. The clinics before finally left the branches of the retros to find itself encrusted in the latter.

Its silhouette, it will challenge you again. Fuller, less openwork, it surprises you by its large panels singularly broken by long hearing of ventilation. The tank is girdled large masks stopping brutally on a new back frame. At its end, the light unit evolved much, the indicators established in the hull are coupled with the rear light to form a block multi-surfaces. However, the drawing of this new pope seems to us shifted compared to the silhouette of the machine. One would say almost the back of a shuttle of the series V of the Eighties. Exhaust question, I hope that you like those of Z 1000. The ZX- 10 R has of it pique one with the roadster. More “lunch box” but also shorter, it makes it possible to control the masses.

The pilot, it is not that which he will see more but the circuit… and the instrument panel. Its compound of instrumentation joined in 2011 the fashion of the digital whole with a large rev counter in bars-graph and a completely digital posting. It is not the kind of model competition which one can find on Ducati 1198 or BMW HP2, and that resembles damn that of Honda VTR-SP1. Like what, certain discrete ideas never fall asleep. But for me, nothing is better than a good old switch to subdue its driving mode instantaneously.

The multifunction screen is flexible: there is a standard view and some modifications in mode tracks. The Race Mode modifies posting as follows: speed becomes an indicator of committee report of big size, and the hour changes of speed. Out of standard, window LCD displays your speed, the committee report (into small), 2 trips, instantaneous consumption, the selected mapping, the level of Traction Control, the temperature and the clock. All that it is necessary to know how that lives over there below. Moreover, has not bad there which wants to know what there is of beauty in the engine and if it sends pie.
