KEY FEATURES

Lightweight Pankl Titanium Connecting Rods

Lightweight Pankl Titanium Connecting Rods

The use of lightweight titanium connecting rods contributes to the Ninja ZX-10RR’s high rev limit, as well as its 1 PS† peak power advantage versus the standard model Ninja ZX-10R.

Lightweight Pankl Pistons

Lightweight Pankl Pistons

Lightweight pistons save 20 g each. The lower reciprocating weight aids in achieving the higher rev limit and contributes to smoothclimbing revs.

Newly designed RR-specific Camshafts

Newly designed RR-specific Camshafts

The RR-specific camshafts were newly designed to elicit high-rpm performance.

New Valve Springs

New Valve Springs

Intake and exhaust valve springs designed for the higher-revving engine contribute to higher performance. Machined valve spring retainers can be produced with greater precision, contributing to the increased reliability needed for high-rpm operation.

DLC Piston Pins

DLC Piston Pins

Piston pins are matched to the pistons and feature a DLC (Diamond-Like Carbon) coating to protect against wear.

High-Grade Suspension

High-Grade Suspension

The WSB-developed BFF (Balance Free Front Fork) and BFRC lite (Balance Free Rear Cushion) shock benefit from more circuit-focused settings, including a lower spring rate (21.5 N/mm >>21.0 N/mm), complemented by firmer compression damping and softer rebound damping. The settings make it easier to weight front wheel, and contribute to lighter handling.

Single Seat

Single Seat

The single seat enhances the track focus of the Ninja ZX-10RR.

Marchesini Forged Wheels

Marchesini Forged Wheels

7-spoke multi-directional forged aluminium wheels specially developed by Marchesini contribute to lighter handling – especially when changing direction. They offer a balance of high rigidity and a significantly reduced moment of inertia, while their machined finish contributes to a high-quality appearance.

Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa SP tyres

Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa SP tyres

The Ninja ZX-10RR is fit standard with top of the range Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa SP tyres.

High-Performance Brembo Brake System

High-Performance Brembo Brake System

Dual high-spec Brembo M50 monobloc calipers gripping large ø330 mm discs, specially prepared radial-pump master cylinder and race-quality steel-braided lines* deliver next-level braking performance.  *Steel-braided lines on the Ninja ZX-10RR only

Light-Handling Chassis

Light-Handling Chassis

Complementing the highly acclaimed stability of the 2019 model, updates to the chassis geometry contribute to increased cornering performance and light handling.

Air-Cooled Oil Cooler

Air-Cooled Oil Cooler

Based on feedback from Kawasaki’s WSB race machine, the new air-cooled oil cooler features an independent circuit – a design often seen on highperformance models.

Integrated Winglets

Integrated Winglets

Winglets built into the upper cowl generate downforce that helps keep the front wheel on the ground during strong acceleration.

Powerful 998 cm3 Liquid-Cooled, 4-Stroke In-Line Four

Powerful 998 cm3 Liquid-Cooled, 4-Stroke In-Line Four

Updates to the Ninja ZX-10R’s powerful engine offer cleaner emissions while maintaining the performance of its predecessor.

Aerodynamic Riding Position

Aerodynamic Riding Position

Updated handlebar and footpeg positions contribute to a more aggressive, circuit-focused riding position, while a new seat design helps riders minimise drag when tucked behind the windshield going down the straight.

Integrated Riding Modes: Sport, Road, Rain, Rider (Manual)

Integrated Riding Modes: Sport, Road, Rain, Rider (Manual)

All-inclusive modes that link S-KTRC and Power Mode allow riders to efficiently set traction control and power delivery to suit a given riding situation.

TFT Colour Instrumentation

TFT Colour Instrumentation

The compact new all-digital TFT colour instrumentation gives the cockpit a high-tech, high-grade appearance. The new meter also offers additional features unavailable on the previous model. 

Next-Generation Ninja Styling

Next-Generation Ninja Styling

The aerodynamic racer-inspired front cowl, highlighted by compact LED headlights, new Ram Air intake and a taller windshield, is the “face” of the Ninja ZX-10R’s nextgeneration Ninja styling.

Close-ratio Transmission

Close-ratio Transmission

The Ninja ZX-10R’s gear ratios were idealised for circuit riding. A larger rear sprocket (39T >> 41T) and shorter ratios for 1st, 2nd and 3rd gears offer strong low-mid range acceleration for quicker corner exits, as well as quicker off-the-line acceleration for strong launches on the circuit.

Electronic Cruise Control

Electronic Cruise Control

Kawasaki’s cruise control system allows a desired speed to be maintained with the simple press of a button. Once activated, the rider does not have to constantly apply the throttle. This reduces stress on the right hand when traveling long distances, enabling relaxed cruising and contributing to a high level of riding comfort. 

Kawasaki River Mark

Kawasaki River Mark

In recognition of its achievement in the Superbike World Championship, special permission to use the River Mark on the Ninja ZX-10R was granted. This is its first use on a nonsupercharged mass-production model.
