ZX-10R chassis with original clutch and gearbox! Should be an interesting one to watch.

That's a shame, I was looking forward to see how they did with the transmission trade-off

Had a chat with the Zytek engineer at the Kawasaki truck; the bike was there but not running; they basically ran out of time on the project and couldn't get the bike ready in time. Apparently it is not a full-time Zytek project, so those guys were doing the work on their own time. It's a shame the ZX-10EV won't be out.
The Vercarmoto R6-based bike is running a modified 6-speed gearbox so that will be a bike to watch.
