Title: 2006 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R Styling
Post by: Seth-ZA on February 18, 2006, 06:54:55 AM
It's horrendous! Herewith the two most disappointing views of the new model:

What a let-down! I had a feeling that Kawasaki would be going underseat exhaust, since they've had it on the smaller Ninja for some time. I don't like it on the 600 either, therefore I conclude that Kawasaki can not design an aesthetically pleasing unconventional exhaust. The styling has lost the shark-like appearance which was the redeeming factor of the previous model. It's gone all soft and round, and by comparison the air intake duct looks out-of-place big.

I'm sure it looks better in person, but that exhaust is terrible looking...is it an under tail or a side mount? WTF

No Fret it really doesn't.  Saw one in the showroom and it really looks like a sport tourer with that exhaust.

+1 that bike induces vomiting!! It looks stupid/ugly as hell.  Someone fucked up designing that bike.  I also read a review of the bike new zx-10.  They said the old zx was balls out crazy ride.  But the new zx is toned down a little and is more street friendly. Even the pipes coming out for it are ugly!!

I didn't think if really looked that bad in the pictures, then I saw one, IMHO one of the worst looking bikes I've ever seen in person.

The bike reminds me of the line "Why are you guys looking at me like I have a dick on me head?"
