Comparing Each End of the Sportbike Price Spectrum: Ducati Panigale V4R and Suzuki GSX-R1000R

At press time, October 2020, the least expensive 1000cc sportbike is this, the Kawasaki ZX-10R. The non-ABS version will set you back $15,399. Loaded with virtually everything the Suzuki has, minus variable valve timing, the ZX-10R is a tremendous bang for your buck. We’re guessing Kawi is slashing prices on old models to make room for the new-and-improved 2021 ZX-10R.
