2005 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R
MSRP $10,999

The 2005 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R is a combination of serious horsepower, lightning quick agility and serious instability. The big Ninja is fast, fun and a handful to ride. So much so, that we loved it in both our 2004 and 2005 Superbike Smackdown tests. If you want a bike to test your skills with, this is one of them.
