The ZX-10R has gone quite some time without much of a visual update beyond a few small tweaks here and there. With the H2 bringing entirely new design language to the Kawaski lineup, it was only a matter of time before they started introducing some of the fast-looking elements to their full-fairing street bike lineup.
Luckily for our green-blooded readers, it appears as though two updated models were spotted in Austrailia with photos to back it up. As I mentioned previously, the front end has been very obviously redesigned after the highly successful H2; but why shouldnt it be? The H2 has been been a complete game-changer for Kawasakis branding and it only makes sense for them to sprinke some of that ‘success spice’ over their lineup of sub $30,000 literbikes as well.
The H2 has a single headlamp in the front end, while these updated 10’s appear to feature two headlights worked into the front end – which in my opinion looks much better than the H2’s single light.
The tank and fairings appear to also get an update, so it’s nice to see Kawasaki putting a little more effort into the bike than a mere front-end facelift..
Kawasaki has aimed their new product launch for the 23rd of this month, so it’s safe to assume we’ll get more details then.
