Kawasaki has launched the 2018 model of the ZX-10RR, mainly to the appearance of the bike with two minor colour changes. The changes are on the lower part of the front forks, as well as the top of the front fork. No other changes have been made to the bike with the mechanicals and engine remaining the same. According to a Kawasaki release, the reservoir canisters behind the lower part of the front fork legs have been changed from red to silver, while at the top of the fork leg, the fork top cap is now green on the 2018 Kawasaki ZX-10RR where it was earlier red in colour.
