Model History & Updates
2017: ZX-10RR special edition in Winter Black colour scheme. Only 500 will be sold in Europe with forged Aluminium 7-spoke Marchesini wheels, Pirelli Diablo Corsa SP tyres, Brembo M50 calipers, braided lines and full up / down quickshifter. You also get cornering ABS, launch control, single seat and some engine tinkering to make it more durable for racing.
2018: Fork reservoir canisters change from red to silver and the fork top cap from red to green. ZX-10R SE launched with super fast electronic suspension system.
2019: Limited edition run of 500 with lighter Titanium con rods and re-designed cylinder heads. The Titanium shaves a few hundred grams off the bits that spin really fast so the engine spins up faster and the red line increased to 14,600 rpm. There is also a change to the valve train with finger follower valve actuation and the top of the engine is painted red to highlight it.
