RACE-READY ENGINE

RACE-READY ENGINE

A number of changes offering enhanced performance and increased reliability care of feedback from Kawasaki’s racing efforts in the Superbike World Championship facilitate converting the Ninja ZX-10RR into a race machine.

Finger-follower valve actuation

Finger-follower valve actuation

A change to finger-follower valve actuation and other updates increase the Ninja ZX-10RR’s engine performance.  Peak horsepower is higher: now 204 PS, which can easily be augmented care of a full race exhaust.  However, the changes benefit performance across the rev range, delivering increased power at all rpm – an advantage for racers as well as World Superbike teams.  The changes essentially raise the flat torque curve of the previous model, so the Ninja ZX-10RR’s easy-to-use character is maintained while offering increased power.

Cylinder & Crankcase

Cylinder & Crankcase

Modified cylinder head provides the clearance to accommodate race-kit high-lift cams. Reinforced, high-rigidity crankcase offers increase reliability and performance for a race-tuned engine.

Wheels & Tyres

Wheels & Tyres

7-spoke multi-directional forged aluminium wheels jointly developed with Marchesini contribute to lighter handling – especially when changing direction. They offer a balance of high rigidity and a significantly reduced moment of inertia.   In addition The Ninja ZX-10RR is fit with Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa SP tyres. The high-performance tyres greatly contribute to quicker lap times.

1 to 500

With production limited to 500 numbered units worldwide, the Ninja ZX-10RR is only for the lucky few.

RR touch

RR touch

Machined “RR” logo engraved into the pulser cover helps distinguish the Ninja ZX-10RR from the crowd.  Ignition key adorned with a “RR” logo adds another special touch.

Kawasaki Quick Shifter

Kawasaki Quick Shifter

Dual-direction KQS is now standard equipment on all models.  * Dual-direction KQS system allows both clutchless upshifts and downshifts, facilitating circuit riding. * Designed for effective sport riding, KQS can also be used on the street at rpm above 2,500 min-1.  

Suspension Settings

Suspension Settings

To match the Ninja ZX-10RR’s single-seat specification and wheels and tyres, front and rear suspension settings ensure smooth weight transfer during deceleration and acceleration on the circuit. Pitching is kept at a manageable level, resulting in composed behaviour. Complementing the  Pirelli tyres, the suspension settings contribute to the bike’s quicker lap times.

Titanium Connecting Rods

Titanium Connecting Rods

Complementing the new finger-follower valve actuation, the Ninja ZX-10RR features special high-performance titanium connecting rods designed by Pankl, a company specialising in developing and manufacturing engine and drivetrain components for formula race cars, high performance vehicles and the aerospace industry.  Their lightweight components, made from high-grade materials, are designed using finite element analysis to withstand extreme mechanical stress.  These high-performance connecting rods were developed specifically for the Ninja ZX-10RR alongside the Kawasaki Racing Team’s long-time performance partner. * Use of the lightweight titanium connecting rods enables the rev limit to be increased by 600 min-1, and contributes to a further 1 PS gain in peak power. * Raising the rev limit enables an even wider powerband, strengthening the Ninja ZX-10RR’s easy-to-use character. * Weighing 102 g less each, the lighter connecting rods contribute to reducing the crankshaft’s moment of inertia by 5%.  In addition to benefiting engine response and handling, this makes it much easier for riders to weight the front wheel on corner entry.   

Electronic Steering Damper

Electronic Steering Damper

Kawasaki’s electronic steering damper, jointly developed with Öhlins, is standard equipment on all models.  * Electronic steering damper provides just the right amount of damping based on what the bike is doing.  Using input from the rear wheel speed sensor (provided via the engine ECU), the electronic steering damper’s ECU determines the vehicle’s speed as well as the degree the bike is accelerating or decelerating. * For riders who prefer a mechanical steering damper, the race kit ECU can accommodate either the electronic or mechanical damper.
