spec differance R vs RR

if i read the marketing text, than the 2017 RR have:

trackfocused gear ratio (2nd to 6th shortened)
M50 Brembo
and lightweight marchesini wheels


if i compere the tech specification on kawasakis USA hompepage and on the german Kawa homepage, than i am suprised:

1. The simple R has exactly the same gear ratio in every gear
2. the simple R has the same M50 Brembo Calipper and same Brembo zylinder
3. even the weigth is the same 206 kg for both R and RR (only the simple R without ABS is 204 kg)

the gear ratio numbers i even controlled today in a service manual, i was shocked but all article number is the same for all gears in the simple R and also in RR

What is the TRUTH ????
thanks
Gabor

Wheels and material in the engine for extra strength and clearance for larger cams. The autoblip is enabled on the DR too, which can be turned on through the ecu in the R. Otherwise it's the same bike.

Edit.. oh and don't they come with the super corsa tires?

How could the weight be the same while the marchesini wheels are much lighter and no backseat, no footpeg back ????
The RR should be lighter.....
Why do they promiss in the RR adds trackfocused gear ratio when the simple R has it also???

Material has been added in some area but also shaved off in other area...

suprised about the marchesini, is it really same weight?

i have the 2017 eurpean zx10RR.
Somewhere i read, if i change the sprocket, the RR ECU or IMU do not need an ecu flash, it is selfadjusting, is it true?
Is it even selfadjusting if i put a de-cat pipe and a Slipon on it? Or i must atliest remap?

Sprockets dont need any changes. There are wheel speed sensors.

You can change exhaust withoit having to remap but it will help with power etc.
