Our mission is to enable riders to more completely control high-performance machines, and enjoy the pleasure of riding.Helping riders realise this simple and innate desire is the goal of Kawasaki technology
Ever since our first motorcycle engine in 1950, Kawasaki has been continually pursuing new technologies in the creation of our high-performance engines.
KLCM (Kawasaki Launch Control Mode) optimises acceleration from a stop by electronically managing engine output to prevent wheelspin.
Kawasaki Engine Brake Control allows riders to set engine braking according to preference.
Electronic Cruise Control allows vehicle speed to be fixed. Rider support technology that helps reduce rider fatigue on long trips and contributes to increased touring comfort.
The Economical Riding Indicator is a mark appearing on the instrument panel to indicate favourable fuel consumption, encouraging fuel efficient riding.
Dual Injectors, each with a distinct role, operate at different rpm ranges, to deliver both quick response and increased high-rpm power.
3-Mode KTRC (Kawasaki TRaction Control), Kawasaki's most advanced traction control system, offers a selection of modes to suit a variety of riding situations, from sport riding to touring.
KTRC (Kawasaki TRaction Control) offers rider reassurance by preventing rear wheel spin on various surfaces.
Launch Control Mode is a motocross-use start mode that helps riders get the holeshot by minimising wheel spin off the start.
Three selectable Power Modes, including one mode in which power delivery varies according to throttle application.
Fuel Economy Assistance Mode is a rider selectable mode that switches the ECU to a leaner fuel map, prioritising fuel economy to enable a longer touring range.
Dual Throttle Valves offer increased power and greater ease of use care of a second set of ECU-controlled throttle valves.
Based on racing technology, the Assist & Slipper Clutch acts as both a back-torque limiter and a self-servo mechanism that enables a lighter clutch lever pull.
Power Mode selection allows engine power delivery to be changed to suit the riding situation.
S-KTRC (Sport-Kawasaki TRaction Control) is a racing technology-based predictive traction control system designed to help riders push harder on the racetrack by maximising acceleration.
Combined with Kawasaki’s proprietary dynamic modelling program, input from the IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit) enables even more precise chassis orientation awareness, the key to bringing Kawasaki’s electronics to the next level.
Smartphone connectivity contributes to an enhanced motorcycling experience by enabling riders to connect to their motorcycle wirelessly.
KQS (Kawasaki Quick Shifter) enables clutchless shifting.
9-Mode KTRC (Kawasaki TRaction Control), Kawasaki’s most advanced traction control system, offers both enhanced sport riding performance and the peace of mind to negotiate slippery surfaces with confidence.
Designed completely in-house, the immense potential of the highly compact, highly efficient supercharged engine is a testament to the technology possessed by the KHI Group.
Electronic Throttle Valves allow the ECU to deliver the ideal amount of fuel and air to the engine.
KCMF (Kawasaki Cornering Management Function) monitors engine and chassis parameters throughout the corner.
This version can also be adjusted to provide a maximum of 35kw to comply with A2 restrictions and the needs of motorcycle training schools.
The result of our advanced engineering, exhaustive testing and continuous striving for superior reliability, safety and performance.
