THE CLOSEST THING TO A 5 TIME WORLD SUPERBIKE CHAMPIONSHIP MACHINE

 

The Ninja ZX-10R supersport bike is built for those who rise to the challenge. Hailing from the proving grounds of the FIM WorldSBK Championship, the Ninja ZX-10R motorcycle is the direct result of decades of world-class road racing innovation, carrying Kawasaki Racing Team (KRT) rider Jonathan Rea to six consecutive championship titles.

Our experience on the track has led to a potent 998cc four-cylinder engine, a race-optimized chassis and an innovative electronics package. Face Yourself and push your limits aboard the Ninja ZX-10R.

POWERFUL & EFFICIENT 

Internal engine designs, from the lightweight crankshaft and pistons to the wide intake and exhaust ports, focus on producing peak power and delivering strong low- to mid-range power for quick acceleration.

WORLD SBK INSPIRED

Valve train inspired by Kawasaki’s WorldSBK engineers is an example of top-level racing technology. Finger-follower valve actuation enables a higher rev limit and more aggressive cam profiles – both contributing to high-rpm performance.

CONTROLLED POWER DELIVERY 

47mm electronic throttle valves and 32-bit ECU operate with great precision to provide smooth engine response.

LIGHTWEIGHT & BALANCED

The titanium alloy exhaust system is heat resistant, lightweight and positioned to create a low center of gravity for effective mass centralization and light handling.

UPDATED NINJA ENGINE

With a powerful 998 cm3, liquid cooled, 4-stroke in In-Line Four updates to the Ninja ZX-10R's powerful engine offers cleaner emissions while maintaining the performance of its predecessor. For the Ninja ZX-10R, a higher rev limit contributes to a wider powerband and increased circuit performance.

NEXT GENERATION NINJA STYLING

The aerodynamic racer-inspired front cowl, highlighted by compact LED headlights, new Ram Air intake and a  taller windshield, is the “face” of the Ninja ZX-10R’s next generation Ninja styling.

AIR-COOLED OIL COOLER

Based on feedback from Kawasaki’s WSB race machine, the new air-cooled oil cooler features an independent circuit – a design often seen on high performance models.

SMARTPHONE CONNECTIVITY

The compact new 4.3” all-digital TFT colour instrumentation give the cockpit a high-tech, high-grade appearance. The new meter also offers additional features unavailable on the previous model.

INTEGRATED RIDING MODES 

All-inclusive modes that link S-KTRC and Power Mode allow riders to efficiently set traction control and power delivery to suit a given riding situation

A WINNING POSITION

The Ninja ZX-10R receives improved ergonomics for 2021. Wider handlebar and higher footpeg positions offer a more aggressive riding position, while a new seat design helps riders minimise drag on straightaways when tucked behind the taller windshield.

AERODYNAMIC BODYWORK

Larger upper cowl cuts through the air more efficiently, and offers the rider greater wind protection, making it easier to shift position for corner entry when riding on the track.

ENHANCED STREET-RIDING EXPERIENCE

For riders who enjoy street riding, features like Electronic Cruise Control, full-colour TFT instrumentation, and being able to access their motorcycle via a smartphone all add to the experience.

HIGH-PERFORMANCE BREMBO BRAKE SYSTEM

Dual high-spec Brembo M50 monobloc calipers gripping large ø330 mm discs, specially prepared radial-pump master cylinder delivers next-level braking performance.

HIGH-GRADE SUSPENSION

More circuit settings for the WSB-Developed BFF (Balance Free Fork) and BFRC lite (Balance Free Rear Cushion) shock facilitate front-rear weight transfer, and contribute to light handling.

KAWASAKI QUICK SHIFTER

The dual-direction Kawasaki Quick Shifter (KQS) system facilitates acceleration by allowing clutchless upshifts and downshifts while on the track. Designed for more effective sport riding, KQS can also be used on the street when the engine is above 2,500 rpm.

ENHANCED STREET-RIDING EXPERIENCE

For riders who enjoy street riding, features like Electronic Cruise Control, full-colour TFT instrumentation, and being able to access their motorcycle via a smartphone all add to the experience.

IMU.jpg

NEXT-LEVEL TECHNOLOGY

The highly advanced, compact IMU enables inertia along 6 Degrees of Freedom to be monitored. Acceleration along longitudinal, transverse and vertical axes plus roll rate and pitch are measured. The yaw rate is calculated by the ECU using Kawasaki’s proprietary dynamic modeling software. Kawasaki’s dynamic modeling software utilizes the Bosch IMU as a source of input then processes the input to provide electronic rider aides that support the rider’s intentions while maintaining seamless performance.

TRACTION CONTROL

Hybrid predictive/feedback-type evolution of the highly sophisticated traction control system helps racers push harder by maximizing acceleration. Five modes enable a greater range of feeling for specific track conditions and riding preferences. Updates to Modes 4 and 5 offer a more rider-friendly characteristic while cornering.

CORNERING MANAGEMENT

Input from the IMU enables cornering management which assists riders in holding their intended line through the corners on the track.

OPTIMAL DAMPING

Specially developed Öhlins electronic steering damper provides just the right amount of damping based on vehicle speed and degree of acceleration or deceleration.
