Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10 R Key Features

The powerful Ninja ZX-10R engine is a 16-valve, DOHC, liquid-cooled inline-four displacing 998cc EngineAn adjustable back-torque limiting clutch assembly is fitted, which allows worry-free downshifts and corner-entry calmness via 76 x 55mm bore and stroke dimensions. Kawasaki Ninja developed the ZX-10R’s electronic steering damper in joint cooperation with Öhlins. The extremely advanced and customizable Sport-Kawasaki Traction Control-S-KTRC.

Ninja ZX-10 R 998 cm³ Liquid-Cooled Engine

The engine offers linear power delivery right to its heady peak power. To ensure ideal engine manageability during all parts of the corner. Peak torque was moved to the higher rpm range, eliminating the torque peaks and valleys that made it difficult for racers to open the throttle with confidence.

BPF  Big Piston Front fork

The BPF is one of the great contributing factors to the enhanced composure under braking. Reducing the damping pressure allows the slide pipe to move more smoothly. The result is greater control as the fork begins to compress and very calm attitude change as vehicle weight shifts forward when reducing speed, and thus greater chassis stability on

Öhlins steering damper

Different a mechanical steering damper   in which the settings, once fixed, must cover all riding conditions and speeds with the new damper, the damping characteristics are changed electronically according to vehicle speed, and the degree of acceleration or deceleration. At low speeds, the settings were chosen such that damping does not interfere with the bike’s intrinsic lightweight handling. At high speeds, damping increases to provide enhanced constancy.

Aluminium Twin-spar frame

The Aluminium twin-spar frame traces a more direct line from the head pipe to the swingarm pivot. This delivers more linear behavior, translating to greater control. Frame twist was designed to be as close to the main pipes as possible, which further facilitates rider control. Frame also offers increases cornering stability and a high level of response.

Instrumentation Composition

The centerpiece of the instrument panel is the highly visibly LED-backlit bar-graph tachometer. The multi-function LCD features two display modes: Standard and Race. Switching to Race Mode alters the display as follows: Main LCD: Speed => Gear position Right side: Clock => Speed To switch to Race Mode, toggle the multi-mode display on the left side to Lap Timer.

Exhaust system

Exhaust header pipes, formed from heat-resistant titanium alloy, have almost the same length and diameter as their race-use counterparts. (This feature makes it easier for riders to increase exhaust performance (for track applications) without having to replace the entire exhaust system.

Aluminium swing arm

Like the frame, the swingarm is an all-cast 3-piece construction. The swingarm’s rigidity balance was designed to complement the frame. Complex design contributes to appearance and a high-quality image.

Mirrors with integrated LED indications

Cowl-mounted mirrors features integrated LED-type (2-bulb) turn signals (a first on a Japanese mass-production model). The turn signals are connected via couplers, facilitating mirror removal for track day usage.

Brakes System

Radial-pump front brake master cylinder operates Tokico radial-mount brake calipers with dual pads for formidable stopping performance, superb initial bite characteristics and a high level of control care of progressive feel after the initial bite.

Fuel tank and LED Taillight

Design of the sculpted fuel tank follows the same theme of “curves.” Fuel tank capacity is 17 litres.

Compact tail cowl culminates with an elegant LED (9-bulb) taillight for more visibility in night.

Aggressive Headlamps

Line-beam headlamps enable front cowl to be made shorter, contributing to the sharp, aggressive design gives more visibility in night.
