"This is the machine everyone is going to be talking about. In the latest issue of MCN, out August 14, you can see the first picture of Kawasakiís new ZX-9-powered muscle bike.
The image has been generated from material supplied to MCN, but the bike, called the ZR1000, has already been seen by our own Dave Batchelor (with no camera to hand) in secret tests in France.
He confirms that this is an accurate rendition of the bike he saw in the metal.
Inspired by the firmís legendary Z1 of the early Ď70s the bike is a much more radical effort than just a stripped down ZX-9R. With two sets of over-and-under pipes and an all-new swingarm the 140bhp machine is the boldest design from Kawasaki in years."
This bikes specs look a lot of fun! Unfortunately MCN is not yet supplying a full image of the bike on their website.
