Technology to Help Riders Explore the Limit

The highly sophisticated electronic management systems on the Ninja ZX-10R facilitate rider control and allow riders to experience what it is like to ride a high-powered superbike at the limit on the track.

Electronic Cruise Control

Kawasaki’s cruise control system allows a desired speed to be maintained with the simple press of a button. Once activated, the rider does not have to constantly apply the throttle. This reduces stress on the right hand when traveling long distances, enabling relaxed cruising and contributing to a high level of riding comfort.

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.

Single seat for Indian Market

Like Ninja ZX-10RR, the single seat is standard Indian specification of Ninja ZX-10R
It increases the racy and aggressive image of the supersport bike and add more fun to sport riding
*Ninja ZX-10R is for single passenger only

Integrated Winglets

Winglets built into the upper cowl generate downforce that helps keep the front wheel on the ground during strong acceleration.

Powerful 998 cm3 Liquid-Cooled, 4-Stroke In- Line Four Engine

The Ninja ZX-10R’s engine balances stunning power with manageability. Positioning peak torque high up in the rpm range makes it easier for riders to get back on the gas, while a strong low-mid range further contributes to acceleration coming out of corners. Finger-follower valve actuation and other features based on feedback from Kawasaki’s WSB factory team contribute to a peak power of 203 PS†, which can easily be augmented care of a full race exhaust. Updates for 2021 offer increased cooling performance and emissions that meet Euro5 requirements while maintaining the engine’s performance and easy-to-use character.

New air-cooled oil cooler

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. The increased cooling performance contributes to engine performance at all rpm.

Close-ratio Transmission

The Ninja ZX-10R’s gear ratios were idealised for circuit riding. A larger rear sprocket (39T >> 41T) and shorter ratios for 1st, 2nd and 3rd gears offer strong low-mid range acceleration for quicker corner exits, as well as quicker off-the-line acceleration for strong launches on the circuit.

LED Headlights

Use of a “reverse slant” design sees the new LED headlights positioned on the underside of the upper cowl. Because the headlights are not visible from the rider’s point of view, the uninterrupted surface conjures the image of piloting a race machine. The LED headlights use direct projection units. The LED headlights are bright, compact and lightweight.

New tail cowl, LED tail Lamps, LED signal Lamp

Slots incorporated in the new tail cowl design contribute to the aerodynamic styling. LED taillight design gives the rear a sharp impression. LED-type rear turn signals complete the all-LED lighting package.

Kawasaki River Mark

In recognition of its achievement in the Superbike World Championship, special permission to use the River Mark on the Ninja ZX-10R was granted. This is its first use on a non-supercharged mass-production model.

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.

Smartphone Connectivity

A Bluetooth chip built into the instrument panel enables riders to connect to their motorcycle wirelessly. Using the smartphone application “RIDEOLOGY THE APP,” a number of instrument functions can be accessed, contributing to an enhanced motorcycling experience.

Light-Handling Chassis (Aluminium Twin-spar Frame / Aluminium Swingarm)

Complementing the highly acclaimed stability of previous model, updates to the chassis geometry contribute to increased cornering performance and light handling.

Advanced Showa BFF (Balance Free Front Fork)

Showa’s advanced ø43 mm BFF offers state-of-the-art WSB racing technology on a mass-production model. The high-spec fork offers numerous benefits:
- increased ride comfort
- increased braking stability
- increased front-end feel
- independently adjustable compression and rebound damping.

High-performance Brembo Brake System

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 aluminium monobloc calipers grip the front discs. The highly rigid opposed 4-piston calipers with ø30 mm pistons contribute to superb braking force, as well as a high-quality image.

Horizontal Back-link Rear Suspension with Showa BFRC lite (Balance Free Rear Cushion)

Showa’s BFRC lite rear shock is a lighter, more compact version of their earlier BFRC shock. The high-spec shock unit offers numerous benefits:
- increased ride comfort
- increased traction
- independently adjustable compression and rebound damping
- reduced weight

Aerodynamic Riding Position

Updated handlebar and footpeg positions contribute to a more aggressive, circuit-focused riding position, while a new seat design helps riders minimize drag when tucked behind the windshield going down the straight.

Integrated Riding Modes: Sport, Road, Rain, Rider (Manual)

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.
