No other supersport can claim the World Superbike Championship like the Ninja® ZX™-10R. The Ninja ZX-10R propelled Kawasaki rider, Tom Sykes, to overall championship podium finishes every year since 2012—securing a championship title in 2013—and delivered back-to-back championships for 2015 and 2016, this time with Jonathan Rea aboard.With the Ninja ZX-10R, development starts at the track. This is why only pure riding essentials make the cut. Down to the finest details, everything that goes into the Ninja ZX-10R has the sole purpose of making it the fastest bike on the track. And as a direct recipient of what the Kawasaki Racing Team (KRT) learns, the Ninja ZX-10R is equipped with championship-proven technology that makes it fully capable of also dominating the streets.

  • 998cc OF CHAMPIONSHIP-PROVEN POWER Massive power. Refined power. Dominant power. The Ninja® ZX™-10R motorcycle’s engine possesses all of the above.
  • 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 performancePrevious model year shown
  • ELECTRONIC THROTTLE VALVES & ECU 47mm electronic throttle valves and 32-bit ECU operate with great precision to provide smooth engine reponse on the track
  • ENGINE Internal engine designs focus on producing peark power and delivering strong low-to-mid range power for quick acceleration - Lightweight crankshaft & pistons - Straight, wide intake and exhaust ports - Lightweight titanium intake/exhaust valves - 6-Speed cassette transmission - Back-torque limiting clutch


  • CHAMPIONSHIP-PROVEN HANDLING Showa's advanced 43mm 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 cornering 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
  • SHOWA SUSPENSION - Showa's advanced 43mm 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 - Horizontal Back-link Rear Suspension featuring the compact and lightweight Showa Balance Free Rear Cushion (BFRC) shock
  • BREMBO® BRAKES - Front Brembo® brakes feature a pair of massive 330mm semi-floating discs that deliver superb braking force and brake feel. The rotors have a grooved outer edge for effective heat dissipation. The brake system features 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
  • 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 Technology

  • Kawasaki next-level electronics bring the extraordinary power of the World Superbike-winning Ninja® ZX™-10R to stunning new levels
  • 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 All trademarks, registered trademarks, logos and copyrights are the property of their respective owners
  • KLCM - 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
  • KQS Facilitates acceleration by enabling the rider to upshift gears with the throttle wide open without using the clutch while out on the track
  • POWER MODES Riders can set power delivery to suit conditions and/or preference - Full (100%) mode - Middle (80%) mode - Low (60%) mode

Handling Technology

  • The Ninja® ZX™-10R features World Superbike Championship proven technology delivering unrivaled agility, control and handling
  • S-KTRC - 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
  • KIBS - Kawasaki’s supersport-grade high-precision multi-sensing brake ABS brake assistance system - Uses high-precision control to modulate brake pressure during sport riding
  • KCMF Input from the IMU enables a control function: cornering management, which assists riders in tracing their intended line through the corners on the track (Ninja® ZX™-10R ABS KRT only)
  • 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 All trademarks, registered trademarks, logos and copyrights are the property of their respective owners
