You're right, it's a Gen 14

When I saw the green ZX10RR I planned to sell my Gen 4 and go all in on the RR. However, If it's gonna be $20k+ I'll just keep my Gen 4. Damn.

But I guess we're past that now considering the Gen6 section has made its way to the forum

When in doubt... send it!

so the new bike is making 201.3 BHP that = 204 HP (without ram air)
What do you guys estimate the Rear wheel HP numbers to be?

My Gen 6 with flash and dyno tune is 190.5 HP to the rear wheels.
Think the ...um....Gen 5.5 will put out about 194 HP to the wheels?

I know these changes are to help with WSBK... it makes sense. The quicker revving engine also will help with track and racing.

I think this Updated bike would get more folks on board if they did a few more simpler things.

A nice TFT dash (They just put one on the 2019 H2) and just redesigned the head lights to LED and new shape... I think I would buy one with that.


H2 SX and H2

It's still the same more or less shape since 2011! Bodywork is still interchangeable!ZX10RR benefits Rea with the rev sealing!not that I wouldn't have 1 but to get the full benefits you must play a bit!I was only thinking last night to try and get 1 of 500 would be near impossible and I can't understand their reasoning for that!ok onother added lot of hp but I was hoping for something a lot more changed in its whole appearance but if your on a good thing why change!the dash should of been a given honestly!but what do I buy?a tried and tested ZX10R!after reading a few to many neg comment on the RSV4 that's out!a V4 Ducati that could give me 3rd degree burns and I really dislike its appearance!the exhausts are like hey Mario where will we put these?I think we stick them in that gap under the seat!great idea and we disguise them with a black cover and then when we get complaints we should use what the space shuttle used for heat!perfect let's go!now before everyone rips me a new ass its only my opinion ok

Kawasaki India's own website lists the ZX10R currently at 1.28 million rupees which is $17.8k usd... and theyre not sold in china last i checked... those countries are total shitholes, you couldnt get me to live in either one if they were giving way FREE zx10rs upon entry lol

$21k is still a pretty significant jump from $15k... thats almost a 50% increase from what we are used to paying when i was back home, so it was one of the few downsides of moving here... .if zx10r's in the US suddenly went up to $21k how many US buyers would still buy them?

well im pretty sure they disperse them based upon quantity of standard zx10r sales... the 2017 RR they did a certain amount per country i think... for instance 3 of my friends here in thailand have ZX10RR models, and ive seen a handful more that i havent met the owners yet.... my friend just sold his last month, its #5 of 99 for thailand

Does the RR come with the rear brembo brake or was that something your friend did and mount it on bottom for stunting? Beautiful bike by the way!
