2011 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R
MSRP $13,799

Kawasaki’s new-from-the-ground-up 2011 Ninja ZX-10R sportbike lives up to the hype that surrounds it. Not only are we talking about a complete redesign of the ZX-10R’s engine, frame, suspension, bodywork, instrumentation and wheels, but a highly advanced and customizable electronic system that helps riders harness and capitalize on the new ZX-10R’s amazing blend of power and responsive handling. The system is called Sport-Kawasaki Traction Control, or S-KTRC. It represents a whole new dimension in motorcycle performance, and the ZX-10R is the only production sportbike that can take you there.
