New Kawasaki 2016 Ninja ZX-10R ABS for sale in Cairns

2016 Ninja ZX-10R ABS

Pure Superbike

The Ninja ZX-10R has clearly demonstrated its circuit potential through winning results in the Superbike World Championship (SBK). Kawasaki has dominated the 2015 season, culminating with the rider's title for Jonathan Rea and the manufacturers championship for Kawasaki. Feedback from the Kawasaki Racing Team and constant development research, the new 2016 Ninja ZX-10R is the closest thing to a highly advanced factory superbike Kawasaki has yet to offer.

Increased performance, designed for the rider, the Ninja ZX-10R is PURE SUPERBIKE.

Offering the same blend of high power and manageability, smooth power deliver facilitates getting back on the gas, while updates deliver a stronger low-mid range for quicker acceleration out of corners on the track. Significant feedback from Kawasaki’s factory superbike ensures the engine’s immense power was maintained while meeting Euro 4 regulations.

2016 Ninja ZX-10R ABS KQS (Kawasaki Quick Shifter)

KQS (Kawasaki Quick Shifter)

Fit standard, KQS helps riders maximise their acceleration on the circuit by enabling them to shift gears while keeping the throttle fully open. Complementing the Ninja ZX-10R’s increased circuit potential, a contactless-type quick shifter enables quick upshifts for seamless acceleration. The system detects that the shift lever has been actuated, and sends a signal to the ECU to cut ignition so that the next gear can be engaged without having to use the clutch. (Clutch use is recommended for downshifts.) The system offers very high reliability, as it is less prone to breaking than contact-type quick shifters.

2016 Ninja ZX-10R ABS High Efficiency Ram Air Intake System

High Efficiency Ram Air Intake System

Ram Air intake is positioned close to front of the bike (where air pressure is highest), contributing to airbox filling efficiency. Larger airbox (8 L >> 10 L) allows a greater volume of intake air to be supplied to the engine. Engine response is improved, and acceleration out of corners is stronger thanks to the increased low-mid range power. Matching the larger airbox, the air cleaner element has a 1.6 times larger surface area and a 40% lower air resistance. This also contributes to the improved engine response and increased low-mid range power.

2016 Ninja ZX-10R ABS Enhanced Chassis Orientation Awareness

Enhanced Chassis Orientation Awareness

The strength of Kawasaki’s cutting-edge electronics has always been the highly sophisticated programming that, using minimal hardware, gives the ECU an accurate real-time picture of what the chassis is doing. Kawasaki’s proprietary dynamic modelling program makes skilful use of the magic formula tyre model as it examines changes in multiple parameters, enabling it to take into account changing road and tyre conditions. The use of Bosch’s compact IMU allows an additional layer of precision to be added to the already high-level S-KTRC, KLCM and KIBS (ABS models only).
