The ‘R’ version comes with new brakes and exhaust system, though the engine remains unchanged. With a 748cc engine delivering 106 PS and superior handling, the Z750R is expected to appeal mostly European customers.
Coming as a competitive alternative to the Yamaha FZ8 and Triumph Street Triple, and as a cheaper choice compared with the ZX-6R, the 2011 Kawasaki Z750R has already aroused interest among two-wheeled fans.
ABS as an option. Some styling tweaks have been made, such as the nose cone, indicators and footpegs.
Limited edition colors (Candy Lime Green and Flat Ebony) and revised clocks are also featured. Handlebar ends and ergonomics have also been revised. Ninja-style 6-spoke front wheel with reinforced rim contribute to the chassis balance, while the Dunlop 210 tires are meant to enhance handling.
The new bike with a raft of planned genuine accessories will be supported by Kawasaki which includes a Kawasaki Akrapovic slip-on silencer.
In October, the bike will be seen at the Intermot exhibition in Cologne and after that at the Carole Nash Motorcycle Live event in the UK in November. During the same month it is expected to be presented at the 2010 EICMA show in Milan.
