Kawasaki‘s World Superbike racing team has begun testing of the 2021 Ninja ZX-10RR, revealing the superbike’s new look.

What is a bit surprising is a lack of winglets that the ZX-10RR’s competitors all seem to be adopting. The Ducati Panigale V4 R, for example, has winglets protruding from either side of the headlights while the Honda CBR1000RR-R has its …read more
