Completely upending the sport bike world, Kawasaki unleashed this supercharged, 1,000cc inline four-cylinder with an amazing claimed output of around 300 horsepower. That’s about 100 horsepower more than any other sport bike now on the market. This R model is a track-only version, with a tamer street model expected to be unveiled soon. Kawasaki wind tunnel work helped shape the evil-looking carbon fiber body, which has wing-like fins resembling that seen on Formula One cars. This bike is more than a flagship. It’s a chest-pounding, ass-kicking corporate statement writ very large.
