Default The $17,000 Superbike Faceoff ZX-10R upset the Aprilia RSV4 RR?

Look around the liter-class sportbike landscape. The field is littered with some of the most technologically advanced and blindingly fast motorcycles the world has ever seen. Trickle-down technology from the world of MotoGP and World Superbike is making its way to production motorcycles faster than ever before, and it’s hard to deny the sportbike landscape is all the better for it.

Considering how fast, how advanced, and how downright amazing today’s literbikes are, how much would you expect to pay for such performance? Twenty grand? Forty? More? Taking into account the cost of today’s fastest hypercars, which can’t hold a candle to today’s literbikes in terms of sheer acceleration, even paying $50,000 can seem like a relative bargain.

Luckily for us, we can get our hands on these amazing two-wheeled rocketships for $17,000 – and have some change left over – and that’s exactly what we have here.

Arguably the most anticipated Japanese sportbike of 2016 – and a bike the MO staff had yet to ride – the new Kawasaki ZX-10R is all the buzz this year. Featuring entirely updated electronics centered around a five-axis IMU, a lighter, more powerful engine, and a Showa 43mm Balance Free Fork adapted from the World Superbike paddock, our test Zed, kitted with ABS and the KRT paint scheme costs $16,299, only $200 less than the Aprilia ($16,499). Our Australian correspondent, Jeff Ware, covered the bike in very thorough detail, which you can read about here.
