Finger-follower valve actuation

• Increased Engine performance (Maximum power 203 PS / Maximum power with RAM air 213 PS)
• Peak horsepower is higher: +3 PS.
• Finger follower valve actuation (Valve train designed by Kawasaki’s World Superbike engineers)

Cylinder Head Ready for High-Lift Cams

• Previously a feature unique to the Ninja ZX-10RR, now the cylinder head of all models provides the clearance to accommodate race-kit high-lift cams.
• Red painted cylinder head cover

KQS (Kawasaki Quick Shifter-Dual Direction)

Dual-direction KQS is now standard equipment.
• Dual-direction KQS system allows both clutchless upshifts and downshifts, facilitating circuit riding.
• Designed for effective sport riding, KQS can also be used on the street at rpm above 2,500 rpm

S-KTRC (Sport-Kawasaki Traction Control)

Kawasaki’s hybrid predictive/ feedback-type traction control helps riders push harder on the racetrack by maximising acceleration. 5 modes enable expert riders to get even more serious enjoyment on the circuit.

KLCM (Kawasaki Launch Control Mode)

Designed to assist racers by optimising acceleration from a stop, KLCM electronically manages engine output to minimise wheelspin and wheel lift when launching.

KCMF (Kawasaki Cornering Management Function)

Feedback from the IMU enables the addition of a new function. The new cornering management function uses KIBS and S-KTRC to assist riders in tracing their intended line through the corner.

Electronic throttle valves

Electronic throttle valves allow the ECU to deliver the ideal amount of fuel and air to the engine. The system also enables more precise control of S-KTRC, as well as implementation of systems like KLCM and Kawasaki Engine Brake Control.

Kawasaki Engine Brake Control

This system allows riders to set engine braking according to preference.

Power Modes

Full, Middle and Low.
Riders can set power delivery to suit conditions and/or preference, choosing from Full, Middle (80%) or Low (60%) mode.

KIBS (Kawasaki Intelligent antilock Brake System)

Kawasaki’s supersport-grade brake management system uses high-precision control to regulate brake pressure during sport riding.

Aluminium twin-spar frame

evised geometry care of a steering head moved closer to the rider, and a longer swingarm put more weight on the front for increased corner entry stability and confidence on the circuit.

Swingarm with optimised rigidity

Designed using Kawasaki’s advanced dynamic rigidity analysis and a from-the-outside-in approach, swingarm with optimised rigidity contributes to nimbler handling

High-performance Brembo Brake System

Dual high-spec Brembo M50 monobloc calipers gripping larger ø330 mm discs, specially prepared radial-pump master cylinder and race-quality steel-braided lines deliver next-level braking performance.

WSB-Developed Balance Free Front Fork

The Ninja ZX-10R features a new front fork jointly developed with Showa in the Superbike World championship. Tested in world racing competition this technology, coming directly from Kawasaki’s factory race machine, is making its mass-production debut on the new Ninja ZX-10R.

BFRC lite

Showa’s new BFRC lite (Balance Free Rear Cushion) shock unit is lighter and more compact than their earlier units. The new shock contributes to increased traction and superb shock-absorption performance.

Öhlins electronic steering damper

Specially developed Öhlins electronic steering damper provides just the right amount of damping based on vehicle speed and degree of acceleration or deceleration. Revised settings were optimised for the racetrack and winding roads.

Cassette transmission

Race-style cassette transmission facilitates gear ratio changes to suit track conditions. The “cassette” is located high enough that it can be accessed without having the engine oil drain out.
