Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R SE For Sale

The 2018 Kawasaki ZX-10R SE is a premium sports bike and is powered by a 998cc inline four engine which puts out 197bhp. It features a super fast electronic suspension system.


  • Super fast electronic suspension


  • No fancy colour TFT dash


It's powered by a liquid cooled 998cc inline four cylinder engine, producing 197.3bhp at 13,000rpm and maximum torque at 11,500rpm. Ram air adds another 10bhp and RRP is £18,950 or £19,650 for the Performance edition.

Features include:

  • Aluminium twin spar frame and swingarm
  • Dual 330mm discs up front with Brembo M50 2 piston calipers
  • 220mm disc at the rear with single piston caliper
  • Bosch Cornering ABS
  • Adjustable Showa 43mm upside down BFF fork with 120mm travel
  • Adjustable Showa rear shock with 114mm travel
  • Ohlins electronic steering damper
  • 3 power/suspension modes: Road, Track, Manual
  • Launch control, traction control, quickshifter
  • 4->1 exhaust system with Titanium muffler
  • 6 speed gearbox with gear position indicator

It's based on the road going ZX-10R but packed with features like the new solenoid based Showa electronically controlled suspension with a 1ms reaction time (that's 1000 damping adjustments per second but pre-load is still manual), Marchesini forged wheels from the track focused ZX-10RR and up/down quickshifter (above 2,500rpm). Incredibly all that additional tech only adds 2kg to the weight over the R.

The 7-spoke 17" Marchesini forged Aluminium wheels take a 120/70 tyre at the front and 190/55 at the rear. Accessories are limited but include the usual Akrapovic exhaust and tank pads, both of which are included in the Performance edition.

Colours: Black/green

2019: Minor changes to valve train with finger follower valve actuation allows the motor to spin up faster and make a few more bhp. The top of the engine is painted red to mark the change.
