The same torquey 636cc motor as the current (European) bike, but it gains :
Upside down forks
An aggressive new styling
All new frame

The engine is based on the current ZX9, but bored out to 953cc with electronic fuel injection. Dig that wild exhaust, it appears to be 2 separate 2-1-2 exhausts! An upside down, 41mm, set of forks up front. Twin 300mm rotors up front, a single 220 mm rotor in the rear.
