Kawasaki celebrates 30 years of Ninja with two anniversary models: a ZX-10R and a ZX-6R.
There are not so many differences between the special editions and the regular one. In fact, the only difference is the special paint scheme.
The inspiration source for the livery is Tom Sykes’s ZX-10R which won the World Superbike Championship last year.
It’s been 30 years since the first Ninja – Kawasaki GPZ900R appeared on the market. The bike was developed in secret during six years, and when it showed up, it shaken the motorcycle industry. It’s got a 900 cc dohc inline four engine which developed 115 horsepower. The bike was capable of 243 km/h which meant it was the fastest series production bike in the world. The GPZ900R was featured in the Top Gun movie and became a pop icon.
The Kawasaki ZX-10R 2015 has got a 1.000 cc engine and 197 horsepower (207 with Ram Air). The curb mass is 198 kg. The prices for the anniversary models are not so scary compared to the regular one: Ninja ZX-10R costs 15.300 euros (300 euros more than the regular model) and Ninja ZX-6R is 11.500 euros (500 euros more than the regular version).
