If you’ve been attention lately, you’ll seen evidence of a new teaser campaign in advance of Kawasaki’s 2011 ZX-10R literbike. A of info, photos and an all-too-brief have been served up at since the site launched on 21.

The site’s latest dollop of 10R came last week a race version of the 2011 took part in track at the Suzuka Circuit in Japan on 7 and 8. The non-stock Ninja was ridden on the day by test rider Hidemichi followed up on day two by Kawasaki’s former Superbike star rider, Yanagawa.

First off, let’s two wild rumors. The new 10R has neither a firing order nor a horizontal of its cylinders, despite fanciful in lesser publications. Rumors of valve timing are also unfounded.

Instead, we find an literbike design of a traditional engine wrapped in a perimeter-beam frame.

And yet, despite the lack of visible innovation, told to expect a seriously liter-sized sportbike. It’s a ground-up redesign. Rumors a production version of the new 10R can lap Kawi’s test track seconds than the 2010 model.

Perhaps the headlining news is Kawi’s lawyers have engineers to develop what turn out to be a class-leading electronic package, including multi-adjustable control. We’re told to a TC system that is better the BMW package on the S1000RR, able to be through more customizable A performance-based anti-lock braking will be optional, but a BMW-like won’t be part of the package.

The new will have comprehensive including the ability to switch street and track displays.

of the S1000RR, that’s the stunning new Kawasaki has to aim for in this revitalized segment. The current ZX-10R is the literbike (aside from the RSV4), so we’re expecting a increase in max revs from to maybe 13,500 rpm. still short of the S1000’s 14K rev limit, suggesting the Ninja bore is less than the 80mm slugs in the BMW.

From what we’ve able to gather, the newest is expected to produce peak numbers near or in excess of 170 at the rear tire. The S1000 out a minimum of 170 hp.

In terms of styling, it like the 2011 ZX-10 has the bones that should the most attractive 10R yet. The of its bodywork is chiseled yet sleek, tightly around the mechanical Large side cut-outs in the add to the perception of lightness and expose the

Speaking of weight, it be interesting to see how many ounces can be away. The current 10R weighs in at 458 with its tank filled, and 5 more than the S1000RR and a 21 pounds heavier than CBR1000RR. The 2011 ZX will be lighter than the BMW, and it even approach the CBR’s low (437-lb) weight.

Keep in mind that pounds were shed the ZX-6R in its last redesign.
