The styling cues on the ZX-4RR are similar to the ZX-25R. Thus, this new model also features a twin-pod headlight, full-fairing, fairing-mounted rear-view mirrors, fairing-integrated front turn indicators, and a split-style saddle.
Unlike its quarter-litre sibling, the ZX-4RR gets a side-slung exhaust instead of a compact unit.
