KEY FEATURES

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.

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.

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

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.
