Former F1 Champ Fittipaldi Producing Limited Edition Kawasaki ZX-10R
Emerson Fittipaldi is probably best known for his four-wheel racing career which include two Formula One World Championships, a CART racing title and two Indy 500 victories. What might be less known, at least outside of his native Brazil perhaps, is Fittipaldi owns a pair of Kawasaki motorcycle dealerships.
The 65-year-old former racer and his team has produced a limited edition run of 50 Kawasaki ZX-10R sportbikes in the black and gold colors of his 1972 F1 Championship-winning John Player Lotus 72 car. Beside the paint job, the Fittipaldi ZX-10R features a number of accessories.
Fittipaldi will produce just 50 autographed and numbered models. He will keep one for himself and auction a second. The rest will be available for sale.
