I have been tossing around the idea of getting a zx10 for about 2 or 3 years but haven't had the extra cash until now. Looks like there is a lot of info on this site. What are the pros and cons of the 3 generations?
Narrower, more flickable, much improved brakes over the 2nd Gen. Better handling.
If you get an '08 or '09 you'll want to do everything on my signature that I've done. Gearing however is up to you. Good luck!
btw, leftover '08's if you can find them are quite a good deal. Leftover '08 cbr 1000's cheap as well. Leftover '07 CBR 1000's going for $7499 new OTD in CA. And that's including out high 8.75% sales tax even.
each generation has their plus's and minus's you are gonna get pretty much the same answer from people depending on what they own. gen 3 owners only like gen 3's gen 2 owners love and accept all gens and gen 1 owners only like gen 1s. get on all 3 see what fits you best
