2016 Ninja ZX-10R ABS KRT Winter Edition

The Closest Thing to a World Superbike Champion Machine

The Ninja ZX-10R has clearly demonstrated its circuit potential through its superlative results in the Superbike World Championship (WSB) – in both years past (2nd in 2012, 1st in 2013, 2nd in 2014) and present, where Kawasaki riders have absolutely dominated the current season, culminating with the rider's title for Jonathan Rea and the manufacturers championship title. With numerous parts benefiting from feedback from the Kawasaki Racing Team as well as ongoing development research, the new Ninja ZX-10R is the closest thing to a highly advanced factory superbike Kawasaki has yet to offer.

With increased performance designed to give it even quicker lap times on the track, the Ninja ZX-10R is well positioned to continue Kawasaki’s Ninja dominance on the world stage.

New Track-focused 998cm3 liquid-cooled, In-line Four

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 KRT Winter Edition High Performance Brembo Brake System

High Performance Brembo Brake System

A pair of massive φ330 mm Brembo semi-floating discs (previously φ310 mm) with a thickness of t5.0 mm deliver superb braking force. The stainless steel rotors offer high rigidity and contribute to excellent brake feel. To further improve the Ninja ZX-10R’s corner entry performance on the circuit, a high-spec Brembo front brake system was implemented. The Brembo system – very similar to the system used on the Ninja H2R – includes the best components available for a mass-production model. Special tuning at the Brembo factory ensures that all play has been removed from the system, so that when the brakes are called for, they respond immediately.

2016 Ninja ZX-10R ABS KRT Winter Edition KTRC (Sport-Kawasaki TRaction Control)

KTRC (Sport-Kawasaki TRaction Control)

Hybrid predictive/feedback-type evolution of the highly sophisticated traction control system helps riders push harder by maximising acceleration. 5 modes enable expert riders to get even more serious enjoyment on the circuit. With the addition of the IMU, S-KTRC changes from a purely predictive system to one that also incorporates feedback. The new hybrid predictive/feedback system offers even more precise management to help an even greater range of riders experience riding at the limit. The 5 DOF input from the IMU (plus the 6th calculated by the ECU) complements the numerous parameters monitored by S-KTRC system.

2016 Ninja ZX-10R ABS KRT Winter Edition Lighter-Handling Chassis

Lighter-Handling Chassis

The lighter crankshaft and a number of changes to chassis deliver a much lighter-handing machine. The noticeably improved corner entry and flickability contribute to quicker lap times.

Lighter crankshaft in addition to the benefits to acceleration and deceleration, reducing the crankshaft’s moment of inertia offers handling benefits as well. With the reduced gyroscopic effect of the rotating crankshaft, handling is lighter, the bike is more flickable, and turn-in is quicker. Also, the reduced mass of the crankshaft helps raise the engine’s centre of gravity, further contributing to the nimble handling.
