Features

Handling

  • CHAMPIONSHIP-PROVEN HANDLING: Showa's advanced 43 mm Balance Free Fork (BFF) brings state-of-the-art WorldSBK racing suspension technology to a mass production supersport motorcycle on the Ninja® ZX™-10R. The benefits include increased ride comfort, enhanced braking balance, increased front-end feel and independently adjustable compression and rebound damping
  • CHASSIS: Optimized geometry for maximum feel, feedback and flickability. Frame and swingarm contribute to sharp handling and great conering speed. Reversible offset collars (race kit parts) allow steering stem and swingarm pivot positions to be adjusted to best suit track conditions and riding style.
  • BREMBO BRAKES: Front Brembo brakes feature a pair of massive 330 mm semi-floating discs that deliver superb braking force and brake feel. The rotors have a grooved outer edge for effective heat dissaipation. The brake system feature dual radial-mount Brembo M50 cast aluminum monobloc calipers, Brembo's highest grade mass production brake calipers. The Brembo radial-pump master cylinder and reservoir are calibrated to require very little lever movement to achieve strong front brake force. Stainless steel braided brake lines contribute to direct feel at the lever.
  • SHOWA SUSPENSION: Showa's advanced 43 mm Balance Free Fort (BFF) brings state-of-the-art WorldSBX racing suspension technology to a mass production supersport motorcycle on the Ninja ZX 10R. The benefits include increased ride comfort, enhanced braking balance, increased front-end feel and independently adjustable compression and rebound damping. Horizontal Back-link Rear Suspension featuring the compact and lightweight Showa Balance Free Rear Cushion (BFRC) shock.
  • STYLING: Upper cowl design reduces drag and provides optimal wind deflection so that the racer can change position more smoothly at track speeds. Strategically-placed vents in the upper cowl help prevent negative pressure build-up in cockpit to reduce helmet buffeting. Vented front fender directs airflow to the radiator for improved engine cooling.

Power

  • EVEN MORE POWERFUL: Massive power. Refined power. Dominant power. For 2019, the 998cc engine is updated with a finger-follower valve actuation to increase engine performance and deliver more power across the entire rpm range.
  • TITANIUM ALLOY EXHAUST SYSTEM: Heat resistant, lightweight and low center of gravity for effective mass centralization and light handling.
  • LARGE AIRBOX: 10-liter airbox improves engine response and increases low-to mid-range power.
  • LARGE AIR FILTER: Air filter has large surface area with low air resistance to contribute to improved engine performance.
  • ELECTRONIC THROTTLE VALVES & ECU: 47 mm electronic throttle valves and 32-bit ECU operate with great precision to provide engine response on the track.
  • ENGINE: Internal engine designs focus on producing peak power and delivering strong low-to mid-range power for quick acceleration. Finger-follower valve actuation. Lightweight crankshaft and pistons. Straight, wide intake and exhaust ports. Lightweight titanium intake / exhaust valves. 6-speed cassette transmission. Back-torque limiting clutch.
  • CYLINDER HEAD READY FOR HIGH-LIFT CAMS: Previously a feature only on the Ninja® ZX™-10RR, the cylinder head on all models now provides the clearance to accommodate race-kit high-lift cams (Race-kit sold separately as a Kawasaki Genuine Accessory).

Technology

  • HANDLING TECHNOLOGY: The Ninja® ZX™-10R features World Superbike Championship proven technology delivering unrivaled agility, control and handling.
  • BOSCH IMU (INERTIAL MEASUREMENT UNIT): 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. This next-level system enables predictive and adaptive electronics for precise chassis orientation awareness.
  • S-KTRC (SPORT-KAWASAKI TRACTION CONTROL): Hybrid predictive/feedback-type evolution of the highly sophisticated traction control system helps racers push harder by maximizing acceleration. 5 modes enable a greater range of feeling for specific track conditions and riding preferences.
  • KCMF (KAWASAKI CORNERING MANAGEMENT FUNCTION): Input from the IMU enables a control function: cornering management, which assists riders in tracing their intended line through the corners on the track.
  • 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.
  • POWER TECHNOLOGY: Kawasaki next-level electronics bring the extraordinary power of the World Superbike-winning Ninja® ZX™-10R to stunning new levels
  • KLCM (KAWASAKI LAUNCH CONTROL MODE): 3-mode system designed to help racers optimize acceleration from a launch, manages engine output to prevent wheelspin and minimize front end lift
  • KAWASAKI ENGINE BRAKE CONTROL: This system allows riders to set engine braking according to preference.
  • DUAL DIRECTION KQS (KAWASAKI QUICK SHIFTER): Now standard on all models, dual-direction KQS system facilitates acceleration by allowing both clutchless upshifts and downshifts while on the track. KQS can also be used on the street above 2,500 rpm.
  • POWER MODES: Riders can set power delivery to suit conditions and/or preference: Full (100%) mode, Middle (80%) mode, and Low (60%) mode
