New electronics and styling among amends for next years machine
Additional race-spec version rumoured
Kawasakis ZX-10R might currently be the dominant force in WSB but it is set to be revamped for 2016 as the firm implements tweaks to ensure it remains on top.
Above and beyond that, there are hints that the bike could follow the lead of rivals Aprilia, Ducati and Yamaha by introducing a second, high-spec version that homologates certain components for racing.
In many respects, Kawasakis continued performance in World Superbike racing this year is a surprise, since 2015 saw the introduction of tough new technical regulations that severely restrict the modifications permitted.
Back in 2014, teams were free to replace the valves, pistons and piston rings with purpose-made racing components, as well as altering their cylinder heads and crank cases by adding or removing metal. For this year and next, none of that is allowed – the pistons, rings and valves must be as-standard, and the only a small amount of modification is permitted to the heads and crank cases. So it is little surprise that several manufacturers opted to launch new or updated superbikes for 2015, including BMW and Aprilia – as well as improving their performance on the street and in showrooms, the updates could integrate components that would benefit race teams hoping to compete in any national or international racing that conforms to FIM superbike rules.
