“When what you are deeply passionate about, what you can be best in the world at and what drives your economic engine come together, not only does your work move toward greatness, but so does your life. For, in the end, it is impossible to have a great life unless it is a meaningful life. And it is very difficult to have a meaningful life without meaningful work. Perhaps, then, you might gain that rare tranquility that comes from knowing that you’ve had a hand in creating something of intrinsic excellence that makes a contribution. Indeed, you might even gain that deepest of all satisfactions: knowing that your short time here on this earth has been well spent, and that it mattered.”

Next generation Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R in the works – Report

In an interview with Speedweek, Kawasaki’s WSBK team manager, Guim Roda, has said that the team will race a new bike in the 2016 season. So in order to compete with the new super bike, Kawasaki will have to develop a production-spec model, followed by testing and homologation ahead of the next season.

Given that World Superbike updated their rulebook for a stricter set of changes to be made on the production-spec model, competing brands will have to develop faster bikes right from the start of its development, rather than saving extensive and expensive factory team developments for the race bike.

This could mean that the next generation 2016 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R could be even more race-ready in stock trim. The current ZX-10R develops 200 PS from a 998cc inline four-cylinder engine paired to a 6-speed transmission. Roda has divulged that Kawasaki will not build a new bike from scratch, but will improve the existing platform in terms of chassis, swingarm, engine and electronics.

Rivals like BMW Motorrad and Yamaha have already met the new rules by updating the S1000RR and R1, respectively, to race-ready levels, whereas Ducati already has the Panigale R as their homologation bike for WSBK, while further extending the road superbike range with the 1299 Panigale and 1299 Panigale S.
