Game over

It looks like the pictures have been taken down from moto-station. Still, you can have the entertainment of reading the French site in mutilated English if you load it through Babel Fish.

"It is well finished the era of the ZX-9R. Very impregnated of MotoGP technology, its replacing announces itself already like a real threat for the values well in place. If one still knows few things about the animal, a first glance on the photographs already makes it possible to have an idea. First thing, the framework more seems to make think of a framework hull that with traditional périmétrique. If such is the case, the ZX-10R would be the first of the hypersports to have recourse to this solution, taking again the lesson of the ZX-12R and KR 500 of Great Price. One imagines the rigidity of the machine adapted to exceptional performances. In the same way, its compactness thanks to extremely reduced side structures, would authorize an optimal ergonomics and aérodynamisme. The tank could be located under the saddle, thus leaving the place with the top of the engine to an air box of large volume and to a quasi vertical establishment of the conduits of admission. Here thus the insurance of an optimal filling and especially of an angle of valves very closed, allowing high modes of rotation and thus an important power... The motor casings state in any case that this one is completely new in the range, undoubtedly narrowly derived from the 4 cylinders of race. The arm oscillating any oversize aluminum, the reversed fork, the radial clamps of brake, the reduced discs, the smoothness of the preparing, nothing was neglected to obtain performances and a still new poids/puissance report/ratio undoubtedly in the category."
