Yeah look I am neutral, well not now, I have a Harley and had an MV Agusta Brutale and I wanted a ZX 10R too, but after today I am sold..

2012 vs. 2013 paint

I tried to read all the posts but didn't see if anyone asked this. Does the 2013 red/white/blue have a pearl paint scheme like the 12' or is it just glossy? Also I think I read somewhere that the 13' is a few pounds less than the 12' but then I also read that they are the exact same other than color. True? If so, where is the weight difference coming from?

2013 = No pearl paint and 2 lbs lighter. Where they saved the weight


If you can't run with the big dogs,

2lbs of pearl flake in the paint!



Seriously though...
I love the pearl white on the 2012. It looks so amazing in the sunlight.

But I also kinda like the aluminum-color frame and swingarm on the 2013.

They both look awesome, just in different ways.
