What Is It?

The Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R is a mid-range sports bike and is powered by a Euro 5 compliant liquid cooled 998 cc inline four cylinder engine, producing 200 bhp at 13,200 rpm and maximum torque at 11,400 rpm. Ram air adds another 10 bhp on top.

Features include:

  • Aluminium frame and swingarm
  • Dual 330 mm discs up front with Brembo M50 four piston calipers
  • 220 mm disc at the rear with single piston caliper
  • Cornering ABS system
  • Adjustable Showa 43 mm BPF upside down fork with 120 mm travel

  • 4->1 exhaust system
  • 4.3" TFT dash with connectivity
  • LED lighting all round
  • 6 speed gearbox with gear position indicator

Compared to the 2011-2020 model there's a new nose housing a modern LED headlight, new TFT dash, improved front brakes, a 40 mm higher screen, cruise control and a liquid cooled oil cooler. There's also a larger exhaust to help Euro 5 compliance and overall it's 1 kg heavier.

Much of the competition now sport winglets for increased down force but instead of following the herd Kawasaki have simply tweaked the fairing to achieve a similar effect with a 17% improvement.

The 3-spoke 17" wheels take a Bridgestone Battlax 120/70 tyre at the front and a 190/55 at the rear.

Accessories include the Akrapovic exhaust, pillion seat cover and heated grips.
