The Kawasaki ZZR-X concept was first shown at the 2003
Milan Motorcycle Show. The ZZR-X was billed as a high
speed tourer, but its ingenuity lies in the adjustable
riding mode mechanisms which allows the rider to adjust
the ZZR-X to suit road conditions and riding styles.
The Kawasaki ZZR-X can be changed to suit low speed touring,
with raised screen and protective fairing, all the way
up to full-on sport mode, where the screen and fairing
move into their most aerodynamic position.
The fairing also changes shape depending on speed, modifying
its shape to the optimum profile.
The Kawasaki ZZR-X concept has other clever design solutions,
including; radical cone-shaped, rim-mounted disk brakes
designed for maximum cooling efficiency, a mass-centralised
fuel tank, a large storage space in front of the seat,
and a silencer built into the curvaceous bodywork.
