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.

Simply the fastest on the track

Based largely on the sleek curves of its predecessor, the Ninja ZX-10R’s purposeful new styling is distinct, but easily recognisable. Fuller upper cowl and new screen, and a more voluminous rear section give the compact, mass-forward package a silhouette closer in appearance to Kawasaki’s factory superbike machine. High-quality fit and finish and superb attention to detail ensure the bike looks equally impressive up close.

slide 1

The centrepiece of the Ninja ZX-10R’s instrument panel is the highly visibly LED-backlit bar-graph tachometer – a mass-production first when introduced on the 2011 model. Additional functions on the multi-function meter include: gear position indicator,odometer, dual trip meters, average fuel consumption, instant fuel consumption, Power Mode (3 modes), S-KTRC (5 modes + OFF), low fuel indicator, Economical Riding Indicator, water/intake air temperature and a host of indicator lamps.

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.

slide 3

Kawasaki’s fully electronic throttle actuation system enables the ECU to control the volume of both the fuel (via fuel injectors) and the air (via throttle valves) delivered to the engine. Ideal fuel injection and throttle valve position results in smooth, natural engine response and the ideal engine output. The system also makes a significant contribution to reduced emissions. The simple system enables more precise control of S-KTRC, and allows implementation of new electronic systems like KLCM and Kawasaki Engine Brake Control. Throttle valve diameter is 47 mm as before.

slide 4

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

slide 5

Windscreen is fully supported by the upper cowl (previously floating). The wider screen offers increased wind protection in the shoulder area, and with the additional support vibrates less at higher speeds. Intakes at the side of the windscreen allow wind to pass through, helping to prevent negative pressure build-up in the cockpit to reduce helmet buffeting. LED-type (3-bulb) position lamp located at the top of the Ram Air duct is highly visible and contributes to the aggressive styling package.

slide 6

High-quality sculpted rubber tank pad protector, provided standard, protects the finish of the lustrous paint on the fuel tank. Fuel tank offers an excellent ergonomic fit with the rider’s forearm and inner thigh when cornering.
