ZX10R Accessories / Rizoma

Following the trend of direct partnership between Rizoma and Kawasaki, here is a new state-of-the art offer of the Rizoma Research and Development department. A new luxury kit is already available for the latest Ninja ZX10R. This kit, in part or in its entirety, will further enhance its unique sporting essence of this amazing bike.

This includes a series of protections (wheel, fairing and engine) for your bike, in the event of a fall, while the new rear sets give the rider the ability to adjust the riding position more accurately, to suit his needs.

Their LED turn signals can be fitted in front of the fairing and at the rear license support plate.
The latter has characteristics similar to all the RIZOMA support plates, in regards to adjustments and quality standards.

When we think about McLaren, we usually associate it with the lenghty and successful Formula 1 history, McLaren F1 supercar and the latest addition in their car range, the MP12-4C. But we never think about bicycles…and that something that McLaren would like to change. UK based factory set out to create the fastest complete performance bicycle in the world. With modern aerodynamics road bikes having sacrificed too much, losing stiffness and gaining weight, McLaren simply weren’t willing to compromise.

Now what we like the most: numbers. The bikes frame weighs only 950g! (2.1 lbs approx.), with the whole module (frame, fork, seatpost and crankset) tipping the scales at 2.07 kg!!! (4.5 lbs). And get this – this bike has an electronic gearshift…It will be available in two specifications, namely the McLaren and the S-Works Venge.

“We can optimise a bike to levels that have never been achieved before,” said McLaren Applied Technologies’ design director Duncan Bradley at the bike’s launch, at Woking.

The pro road bike will make its competition debut from as early as this Saturday’s Milan-San Remo race, where it will be entered by Briton Mark Cavendish (HTC-Highroad). Additionally, the S-Works McLaren Venge will also be ridden by several drivers from the Astana and Saxo Bank-Sungard teams.
