THE CLOSEST THING TO A WORLD SUPERBIKE CHAMPIONSHIP MACHINE

Complementing the original Ninja ZX-10R and track-focused Ninja ZX-10RR, the Ninja ZX-10R SE features Kawasaki’s highly advanced electronic suspension. Both on the street and on the track, the suspension’s superb damping character offers a level of ride comfort that almost makes you forget you are riding a machine with race-ready suspension, while outstanding damping responsiveness delivers a planted feel that translates to rider confidence and further advances the ease of riding offered by the Ninja ZX-10R. For 2019 the Ninja ZX-10R SE also benefits from the ZX-10R engine upgrades and delivers 203 PS.

High-grade model complements the circuit potential of the Ninja ZX-10R with Kawasaki’s highly advanced electronic suspension (KECS), and forged Marchesini wheels.

slide 1

RACE READY ENGINE

A number of changes offering enhanced performance and increased reliability care of feedback from Kawasaki’s racing efforts in the Superbike World Championship facilitate converting the Ninja ZX-10R into a race machine.

slide 2

FINGER-FOLLOWER VALVE ACTUATION

A change to finger-follower valve actuation and other updates increase the Ninja ZX-10R’s engine performance. Peak horsepower is higher: now 203 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-10R’s easy-to-use character is maintained while offering increased power.

slide 3

CYLINDER & CRANKCASES

The new cylinder head provides the clearance to accommodate race-kit high-lift cams. The high-rigidity crankcase offers excellent reliability and performance for a race-tuned engine.

slide 4

HIDDEN ACCENTS

All models feature a red painted cylinder head cover, an expression of the high performance offered by finger-follower valve actuation.

slide 5

KQS (KAWASAKI QUICK SHIFTER)

Dual-direction KQS is now standard equipment on all models. Dual-direction KQS system allows both clutchless upshifts and downshifts, facilitating circuit riding. Designed for effective sport riding, KQS can also be used on the street at rpm above 2,500 min-1.

slide 6

KAWASAKI ELECTRONIC SUSPENSION CONTROL

Jointly developed with Showa, KECS adds electronically controlled damping to the high-spec Balance Free Front Fork and BFRC lite (Balance Free Rear Cushion) rear shock equipped on the Ninja ZX-10R. The semi-active system adapts to road and riding conditions in real time, providing the ideal amount of damping called for. Combining advanced, race-developed mechanical components with the latest electronic control technology, KECS offers both the suppleness to handle a wide range of street riding situations, and the firm damping needed for circuit riding.

slide 7

HIGH-PERFORMANCE BREMBO BRAKE SYSTEM

A pair of massive φ330 mm Brembo semi-floating discs with a thickness of t5.0 mm deliver superb braking force. The stainless steel rotors offer high rigidity and contribute to excellent brake feel. 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.

slide 8

REAR BRAKE

At the rear a 220 mm diameter disc is slowed by a single-piston caliper. The disc’s round shape complements the round shape of the front Brembo discs.
