New Kawasaki 2017 Ninja ZX-10R ABS for sale in Cairns

2017 Ninja ZX-10R ABS

Pure Superbike

The 2017 Ninja ZX-10R ABS has clearly demonstrated its circuit potential through winning results in the Superbike World Championship (SBK). Kawasaki dominated both the 2015 championship and 2016 season with Jonathan Rea's consecutive World Superbike Championships and again winning the 2016 WSB Manufacturers Championship for Kawasaki. Feedback from the Kawasaki Racing Team and constant development research, the 2017 Ninja ZX-10R ABS is the closest available Kawasaki model to a highly advanced factory Kawasaki superbike.

The 2017 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R is Pure Superbike.

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.

2017 Ninja ZX-10R ABS Exhaust System

Exhaust System

Exhaust header pipes, formed from heat-resistant titanium alloy, have almost the same length and diameter as their race-use counterparts. (This feature makes it easier for riders to increase exhaust performance (for track applications) without having to replace the entire exhaust system.) Connector pipe joins headers 3 and 4, contributing to smooth engine response. Header collectors (4-2 sections) are hydroformed, resulting in a simple, lightweight construction.

2017 Ninja ZX-10R ABS Aluminium Swingarm

Aluminium Swingarm

Taking a from-the-tyres-inward approach, Kawasaki's dynamic modelling program (a comprehensive application the magic formula tyre model) was employed to determine the stresses that would be placed on the swingarm when the tyres are used to their full potential on the circuit. Then advanced dynamic rigidity analysis was used to precisely determine the necessary wall thickness and size to deliver the ideal lateral and torsional rigidity. The swingarm's optimised torsional rigidity contributes to the bike's nimbler handling.

Long swingarm contributes to the increased weight on the front. The benefits can be felt during braking, turn-in and when flicking the bike from one side to the other.

2017 Ninja ZX-10R ABS 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.
