Ninja update

A few weeks ago the ZX10-R was completely stock – nothing added or changed from its factory delivery build.

It looked like this:

Here’s a close-up of the tail:

I have always thought that the ZX10 was a bike of two halves, since the first time I saw it up close at the NEC last November.

Oh sure, I know that all new bikes will have the same elongated arse, in order to meet the German regulations (because no manufacturer is going to lose economies of scale and build a bike for just one country).

So I decided to do something about the look of mine.

Later that same day the bike looked like this:

    Indeed. Shame it has to have the number plate though… ruins the lines.
