The recently revealed 2011 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R, which had its public debut at the recent EICMA show in Milan, will also reach British shores, the motorcycle manufacturer revealed today, while also announcing pricing details on the machine.

The 2011 Ninja ZX-10R comes in either black or green, with the new KIRB system which is Kawasaki's Intelligent anti-lock Brake System plus the new S-KTRC which minimizes wheel slip on slick or broken surfaces.

Getting straight to the point, the 2011 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R will retail at GBP11,699 ($18,600) and GBP12,699 ($20,200) for the ABS equipped model. An additional sports package includes traction control and DTC, costing an extra GBP1,360 ($2,176).

Specifically, the 998cc, 16-valve, DOHC, liquid-cooled inline-four engine fitted on the Ninja superbike develops 197 horsepower (or 207 horsepower with ram air in full effect).
