R-Racer screen for ZX-10R and R-Fighter footpegs

Now available from Spanish specialist Puig is the R-Racer 3 mm high-impact acrylic racing screen for the Kawasaki ZX-10R. Developed in close collaboration with the Kawasaki WSBK team, “the design is the result of years of partnership with the dominant team of the world championship for the past few years, providing experience and riders’ feedback from high-end competition.”

The main feature is its pronounced higher than original design, providing a more aggressive and sporty look. Its shape clears air pressure by 1,42 kg (tested at 150 km/h), which delivers a 38% improvement in the rider’s protection with a sporty riding position - this is said to represent “significant results, especially on the helmet protection and upper body section, without losing the aerodynamic coefficient (Cx), so the performance of the bike remains unchanged; available in multiple colourways.
Also seen here, Puig’s new R-Fighter series footpegs have been “developed to achieve maximum safety and confidence on either sports or touring bikes”.

Described as being designed for a “sporty riding style with more grip to provide more confidence in risky riding situations”, the design is said to have been inspired by the look of gear teeth. Machined from lightweight billet aluminium, they are said to provide a better surface and high-quality finish. “The metallic finish of these footpegs is intended for a more aggressive riding style, while the R-Fighter S model, with a rubber insert, is intended to soften the vibrations of the bike for daily use”.
