It was originally released in 2004 with minor revisions in 2005, it combines ultra-narrow chassis, low weight, radial brakes, and strong engine make it a very competitive package for its Japanese rivals: Suzuki's GSX-R 1000, Honda's CBR1000RR and Yamaha Motor Company's R1. In 2004 and 2005 the ZX-10R won Best Superbike from Cycle World magazine and the prestigious international Masterbike competition. It is known to be the most 'hard edged' or race oriented out of the Japanese one-liter inline four cylinder motorcycles, with relatively quick steering and a ferocious powerband.
