THE CLOSEST THING TO A WORLD SUPERBIKE CHAMPIONSHIP MACHINE
A change to finger-follower valve actuation and other updates increase the Ninja ZX-10R’s engine performance. Peak horsepower is higher: now 203 PS, which can easily be augmented care of a full race exhaust. However, the changes benefit performance across the rev range, delivering increased power at all rpm – an advantage for racers as well as World Superbike teams. The changes essentially raise the flat torque curve of the previous model, so the Ninja ZX-10R’s easy-to-use character is maintained while offering increased power. High-level base model features an engine and chassis with a high level of circuit potential, complemented by high-grade components like Balance Free Front Fork and BFRC lite suspension and a potent Brembo brake package.
Race Ready Engine
Finger-follower valve actuation
Cylinder & Crankcases
All models feature a red painted cylinder head cover, an expression of the high performance offered by finger-follower valve actuation.
KQS (Kawasaki Quick Shifter)
Dual-direction KQS is now standard equipment on all models. 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 min-1.
Balanced Free Front Fork
High-performance Brembo Brake System
A pair of massive φ330 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. Special tuning at the Brembo factory ensures that all play has been removed from the system, so that when the brakes are called for, they respond immediately.
At the rear a 220 mm diameter disc is slowed by a single-piston caliper. The disc’s round shape complements the round shape of the front Brembo discs.
