Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R: Exotic Bike of the Year

Why Green Lantern, you ask? The first common connect will be the lovely dual-tone, radioactive green-and-black that the bike comes in, pretty much like the Lantern’s suit, but the similarities don’t end there. There’s the overall sharp design, which makes the bike more suited for the Lantern’s intergalactic trips.

In the real world though, the ZX-10R is a track-bred beast that has been injected with road manners for average folks like you and me. That doesn’t mean the bike is mild-mannered in any way. It still makes close to 200 horses that can propel the bike to a claimed top speed of 300kph.
