Will the new ZX10R Kawasaki enjoy success on the mountain course during TT 2016? it’s one of the anticipated questions ready to be answered next year.
In my opinion the ingredients are there for the highly rated machine to be victorious.
GB Moto Racing are set to have direct input from KRT (Kawasaki Racing Team) providing technical assistance as they bid to Kawasaki’s current tally of 38 TT victories.
Macau Grand Prix winner Peter Hickman leads the teams challenge, although he has’nt sealed a TT podium finish yet, multiple people believe that 2016 will see Hicky become an Isle of Man TT winner.
TT 2015 saw Kawasaki enjoy arguably it’s most successful TT Races for multiple years.
RST superbike and Pokerstars senior races saw Ian Hutchinson and James Hillier, seal between them two second place finishes and two third place finishes.
James Hillier’s lap speed of 132.414 mph, the third fastest in TT history, was also proof of how improved Kawasaki where in superbike trim at this years TT Races.
Royal London 360 superstock TT would see Ian Hutchinson clinch at the time his tenth TT victory, plus Kawasaki’s first superstock TT success since 2011.
Alongside Peter Hickman, 2016 superstock TT sees multiple world class pure road racers ZX10R Kawasaki mounted.
They include James Hillier, MSS Colchester Kawasaki’s William Dunlop, Silicone Engineering Racing’s Dean Harrison, Devitt RC Express Racing’s Ivan Lintin and Alan Bonner.
Kawasaki’s presence at TT 2016, will be the strongest they have had for a long, long time. The iconic marque is determined to be back on the top step of the podium in superbike, senior races.
Early signs about the new ZX10R are extremely positive, in stock trim it’s believed to have 212 BHP!
Anticipated only bike to be producing similar BHP in superstock trim, is BMW’s S1000RR.
Superbike wise, we know the power output will be immense, will it’s handling be good though for example down Bray Hill and from Ginger Hall to Ramsey?
If the handling on the new ZX10R Kawasaki is top draw, combined with good reliability and the anticipated huge power output, there’s every chance this could be the machine everyone has to beat at TT 2016.
