I literally was going to search some posts and ask do we know if the new 10 is coming or not. I kinda think this is maybe the same bike...if a ten at all.....just small refresh, because they normally launch the zx10R separate and not with a gang of other bikes. When its All new. refresh get lumped in with the rest

I think the 1st bike on the right marked Something R........... is the new ZX10R...it has Marchesini style rims and round rotors vs. pitted. BUT....it has a lot of exhaust showing with no fairing, so it makes me think it just might be a new H2R.
The two marked ZX10R and RR do have the current three spoke wheels on them...possibly the zx10R. I would just be disappointed if they kept the 2 spokes on a new model.

But Historically since the 2011.... all new zx10R had a show on its own.
Gen 4 was teased for a few months and had a solo debuted Oct 2010. 2015 had a group debuted to show off the electronic Ohlin's damper.
Gen 5 Had the one day debuted in Italy with Rea and Sykes and the motorcycle show.
The 2017 RR if I recall was shown with the other bikes, 2018 SE, then 2019 new motor had a revel with the other bikes (released one day per bike).
So I am expecting the new engine they made...same frame mild update to fairings, led headlights and new TFT dash.
Almost like a Gen 5.5 vs. full on Gen 6.
Kaw usually tease us with the new model, and once Rea won the championship they got very quiet about launching a new bike.

Anyway this is my armchair analyst of it all lol.

Did anyone else notice that they made a new RR engine with the Titanium in 2019....but no RR in 2020? This might be the return also.

I doubt they'd be releasing a new zx10r since the last refresh was in 2019. Probably just a homologation special zx10rr.

I hope not, the "Basic" R also deserves an update, just also hope they dont rise the price too much on the base model.

The article said they test wings last year.... I forgot about that....and its one of the hardest pictures to find lol.
Im not sure what I am hoping for. Once i put that AIM dash on my gen 5...she seemed perfect. Im sure no matter what Ill get the new one since I've done so since 2004.

Every superbike manufacturer has been doing that and I think its a smart way of minimizing costs; updating the base model and making a homologation special. The R1 (along with the R1M) has same model from 15-17, update for 18-19 and another update 20+. Suzuki had the GSXR 17-18 and updated for 19-20. Ducati updates their V4R homologation special yearly. ZX-10R (and ZX-10RR) 16-18, updated for 19-20. BMW is adding their new M model next year along with their base model.
