Q. Which one is better Yamaha R1 or ZX10 R, in terms of road presence, pick up, handling posture, engine, reliability, bulkiness, firing, pillion rider seat comfort?
  • On straight road 10r is obviously Fast but on the corners R1 is Faster, R1 has Cross plane Engine which is why it sounds so god damn different form other typical inline 4 bikes(I love it). 10r is wide and heavy than the R1. Both bike will make there presence on the road 'cause of their sound.10r will seem you more bulky than the R1 because of the wide body kit it has, R1 is lil thin and compact. Firing pattern of both bikes are different (I love how R1 sounds).You don't want to have someone squizing you from behind when you go 200km/h on the road on both the bikes, but, R1 is back seat is lil bit tiny compared to the 10r.

  • Check out Jonathan rea. He rides both 10r, 10rr. He is a world sbk champion now for the 6th time. Krt's best rider till date. R1 is good but kawasaki is getting better and designs and prices are cheaper because of ckd.

Q. Which is good to buy between Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R and Yamaha YZF R1?
  • It would be unfair to give a verdict here as the Yamaha YZF R1 is yet to make its debut in the BS6 era. The Yamaha YZF-R1 is powered by a 998cc, in-line four, liquid-cooled engine which makes 200PS power. The ECU is programmed with five different types of control systems, including traction control, slide control, launch control and quick shifter. On the other hand, the Ninja ZX-10R has undergone a massive styling change for 2021. The motorcycle now gets the Ninja H2-inspired front fascia, just like most other Ninja series bikes. Its 998cc motor still pushes out 213PS and 115Nm, making sure it doesn't lose its membership from the elite 200 PS club. Revisions to the gearbox and final drive are said to make the bike even more livelier. Moreover, we would suggest you to take a test ride for a better understanding of performance and comfort.

User Reviews of Comparison

  • Kawasaki Z900
  • Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R
  • This bike is scary if you are jumping to this directly from a sub 300cc bike. But once you get a hang of it, it's so much fun. In city limits, it can ride easy in any gear, and on highways, that's where the fun begins. There is a difference in power once you reach higher RPMs and that's when you would enjoy it even more.It's has an easy almost upright riding position, only slighly agressive. Seat height is a bit taller now, and the ground clearance is improved as well. Exhaust has a beautiful grunt to it which you can hear while riding as well. TFT has very clear display and is visible during day as well. I like the road rider mode, which has full power and bit of traction control as well. Sports mode makes the throttle very s****h which is only good if you want to ride agressively, i.e. switch gear and accelerate non stop, which is not possible in city, but definitely good on empty highways, or tracks. All in all, it's an awesome update for the z900
