Technology Engine management

Ever since our first motorcycle engine in 1950, Kawasaki has been continually pursuing new technologies in the creation of our high-performance engines. Today, our models are filled with numerous original Kawasaki technological features that have evolved over our long history.


KCMF (Kawasaki Cornering Management Function) monitors engine and chassis parameters throughout the corner.

KCMF monitors engine and chassis parameters throughout the corner — from entry, through the apex, to corner exit — modulating brake force and engine power to facilitate smooth transition from acceleration to braking and back again, and to assist riders in tracing their intended line through the corner.

KCMF oversees the following systems (where available):
- KTRC (including traction, wheelie and sliding control)
- KIBS (including pitching control)
- Kawasaki Engine Brake Control
