NINJA ZX-10R ABS KRT

$33,995

Building on proven performance to retain the WSB crown

Carrying Kawasaki riders to six World Superbike titles, the Ninja ZX-10R has demonstrated its championship-winning performance while allowing a wide range of riders to experience the thrill of exploring their limits on the circuit. To ensure its continued competitiveness, a host of changes to engine and chassis – including a higher rev limit and new lightweight pistons for the Ninja ZX-10RR – build on this proven performance; next-generation Ninja styling offers significantly improved aerodynamics; and new features like Electronic Cruise Control and a TFT instrument panel with smartphone connectivity enhance street-riding enjoyment. High-level base model features an engine and chassis with a high level of circuit potential, all-new aerodynamic styling complete with integrated winglets, and high-grade suspension and brake components.

FEATURES

COOLING

Based on feedback from Kawasaki’s WSB race machine, the new air-cooled oil cooler is a design often seen on high-performance models. Rather than routing coolant from the radiator to the oil cooler and back to the engine, the new oil cooler is air-cooled and has an independent circuit. Oil is routed from the left lower crankcase to the oil cooler, where it is cooled, then returned on the right side.

ALUMINIUM TWIN-SPAR FRAME

Twin-spar frame traces a direct line from the head pipe to the swingarm pivot. This delivers linear behaviour, which translates to greater control. Frame twist was designed to be as close to the main pipes as possible, which further facilitates rider control. The frame design also contributes to cornering stability and a high level of feedback. Swingarm pivot is 1 mm lower.

EXHAUST SYSTEM

Exhaust header pipes, formed from heat-resistant titanium alloy, have almost the same length and diameter as their race-use counterparts. Moving one of the catalysers further upstream (where it heats up more quickly) increases its effectiveness, contributing to cleaner emissions. To accommodate this, the under-engine pre-chamber volume is decreased.

HIGH PERFORMANCE BREMBO BRAKES

A pair of massive ø330 mm Brembo semi-floating discs with a thickness of t5.0 mm deliver superb braking force. The stainless steel rotors offer high rigidity and contribute to excellent brake feel. Dual radial-mount Brembo M50 cast aluminum monobloc calipers grip the front discs.

STYLED FOR AERODYNAMICS

The sleek, racy looks offer significantly improved drag resistance (down approximately 7%), a roughly 17% increase in downforce (thanks to a new aerodynamically sculpted front cowl with integrated winglets), and better wind protection (care of its taller windshield).

TFT COLOUR INSTRUMENTATION

The compact new 4.3” all-digital TFT colour instrumentation gives the cockpit a high-tech, high-grade appearance. The new meter also offers additional features unavailable on the previous model. High-grade full colour display features TFT technology, delivering a high level of visibility. The screen’s background colour is selectable (black or white), and screen brightness adjusts automatically to suit available light.
