I like the ZX10 too. rode one recently and LOVE the engine in it. great bike. this is probably another step up from that though... especially for the track day rider.
ZX10 is definatley the best value for money 1000cc superbike out there at present - build quality has improved over the past few years - the 1000rr's i have looked at over the past 12 months have not impressed me with the build quality (agreed it is an awsome weapon but let down by the styling and quality in my opinion). Looked at the usual suspects and cant see further than the ZX10 upto now - its the bike show in Birmingham next month so i will scan what the ricers are doing for next year but Kwak looks favorite at the moment any way if i do get a ZX10 it will be able to Kwak with my Ducs

No one is talking about BMW pulling out of WSBK next year.



No one cares?

a Goldbet bike...it's a privateer team, not a factory team. BMW (as a factory team) pulled out last year. Privateers can use any bikes.

Factory team pulled out last year but the GoldBet team is the factory supported team with factory contracts for their riders. Next year there won't be any factory riders or factory supported teams. They will all be privateers and riders will have to be contracted directly with the team.
