For 2011 Kawasaki have welcomed a new model into the Z750 family, the range-topping Z750R.

The Kawasaki Z750R features the same 748cc 4-cylinder engine as the bike on which it is based. This engine produces 104 horsepower and 57 lb-ft (77Nm) of torque. However there are several new features which improve the bike's handling, looks and overall performance.

Firstly, the square section steel swingarm of the standard bike is replaced with a superior pressed aluminium unit on the Z750R. The new swingarm is lighter and contributes to the Z750R's higher-grade appearance. The sculpted design is based on that of the 2009 Z1000, featuring the same left side, but a newly designed right side to be able to better accommodate the 180 mm rear tire used by the Z750R.

At the rear of the Kawasaki Z750R, the Bottom-link Uni-Trak rear suspension features a nitrogen gas-charged shock with piggyback reservoir. The rear suspension settings have been designed to complement the suspension setup of the front forks. The forks of the Z750R are in fact the same as those of the Z1000. These 41mm units feature a smooth action in the top half of the stroke, while the second half features firmer damping to provide a solid, planted feel during cornering. The front forks of the Kawasaki Z750R are adjustable for rebound and preload.

To bring the Kawasaki Z750R to a halt, the bike is fitted with radially-mounted, opposed 4-piston front calipers, which clamp onto 300 mm petal-style discs. The new calipers are complimented by braided-steel brake lines - which offer a more direct feel to the rider.

Kawasaki has also given the 2011 Z750R a new instrument panel. The stylish black-colored analogue-style tachometer sits alongside an orange-colored LCD display with digital speedometer, odometer, trip meter, water temp, fuel gauge, clock, etc.

At launch the 2011 Kawasaki Z750R is available in two color options. The traditional black and green Kawasaki colors, or a sinister all black color scheme.

This is what Kawasaki had to say about the Z750R:

"The Z750R is an impressive package. It has been designed to take the handling, braking and overall specification of the hugely popular Z750 to a totally new level, justifying the exclusive R status of our new mid-weight naked contender for the coming year."
