hno ooooh I cant wait if they come out with a ZX-8R!!!!Our local commentator, Dave Peterson, ex-GP racer from many moons ago, mentioned it during the preview to the Superbike races. He has got close contacts with Randy Mamola which used to give phone interviews before every race here with all the latest info. I can't confirm that he got his info from there, but he is usually right with the info he gives during his presentations.
Can't confirm either whether it will be a ZX10R or a ZX8R, but either way, should be worthwhile waiting for!
