Accelerated ZX-10 Superbike
A funny thing happened to me on the way to the racetrack, or so it goes. Recently, on my way to Thunderhill Park Raceway in Northern California, I decided to visit the Monterey Peninsula and say hello to my friend Dan Kyle of Kyle Racing Engines. In a conversation about what’s new, Dan showed me the daily ride he’s using to get back and forth between home and shop. At first look, in the dark confines of the shop, I thought it was merely a cleaned up Kawasaki ZX-10.
With many years of experience tuning some of America’s top motorcycle racing bikes in the ’90s, Dan Kyle knows a thing or two about motorcycle performance and for the last seven years has brought that knowledge to the sportbike world.
In stock trim, Yamaha’s fire-breathing R1 is an astoundingly capable machine. However, after some detailed modifications from Kyle Racing, this particular R1 has been taken to an even higher level. (Click image to enlarge)
