The new The new 2021 KAWASAKI Ninja ZX-10R

You can beat all opponents, but there is always a challenge you still have to face, the one within yourself. For those like you who rise to any challenge, we have developed the
bike that a true champion deserves. The new Ninja ZX-10R (all editions) & Ninja ZX-10RR have what it takes to win: all new aerodynamic body with integrated winglets, small & light LED headlights, TFT colour instrumentation, and Smartphone connectivity plus updates derived from Kawasaki Racing Team World Superbike expertise.Now that you have the definitive race focused Ninja, Face Yourself.

KEY FEATURES

Integrated Winglets

Integrated Winglets

Winglets built into the upper cowl generate downforce that helps keep the front wheel on the ground during strong acceleration.

High-Grade Suspension

High-Grade Suspension

More circuit-focused settings for the WSB-developed BFF (Balance Free Front Fork) and BFRC lite (Balance Free Rear Cushion) shock facilitate front-rear weight transfer, and contribute to light handling.

Close-ratio Transmission

Close-ratio Transmission

The Ninja ZX-10R’s gear ratios were idealised for circuit riding. A larger rear sprocket (39T >> 41T) and shorter ratios for 1st, 2nd and 3rd gears offer strong low-mid range acceleration for quicker corner exits, as well as quicker off-the-line acceleration for strong launches ont he circuit.

Aerodynamic Riding Position

Aerodynamic Riding Position

Updated handlebar and footpeg positions contribute to a more aggressive, circuit-focused riding position, while a new seat design helps riders minimise drag when tucked behind the windshield going down the straight.

Integrated Riding Modes: Sport, Road, Rain, Rider (Manual)

Integrated Riding Modes: Sport, Road, Rain, Rider (Manual)

All-inclusive modes that link S-KTRC and Power Mode allow riders to efficiently set traction control and power delivery to suit a given riding situation.

Powerful 998 cm3 Liquid-Cooled, 4-Stroke In-Line Four

Powerful 998 cm3 Liquid-Cooled, 4-Stroke In-Line Four

Updates to the Ninja ZX-10R’s powerful engine offer cleaner emissions while maintaining the performance of its predecessor.

TFT Colour Instrumentation

TFT Colour Instrumentation

The compact new all-digital TFT colour instrumentation gives the cockpit a high-tech, high-grade appearance. The new meter also offers additional features unavailable on the previous model.

Kawasaki River Mark

Kawasaki River Mark

In recognition of its achievement in the Superbike World Championship, special permission to use the River Mark on the Ninja ZX-10R was granted. This is its first use on a nonsupercharged mass-production model.

Smartphone Connectivity

Smartphone Connectivity

A Bluetooth chip built into the instrument panel enables riders to connect to their motorcycle wirelessly. Using the smartphone application “RIDEOLOGY THE APP,” a number of instrument functions can be accessed, contributing to an enhanced motorcycling experience.

High-Performance Brembo Brake System

High-Performance Brembo Brake System

Dual high-spec Brembo M50 monobloc calipers gripping large ø330 mm discs, specially prepared radial-pump master cylinder and race-quality steel-braided lines* deliver next-level braking performance.  *Steel-braided lines on the Ninja ZX-10RR only

Light-Handling Chassis

Light-Handling Chassis

Complementing the highly acclaimed stability of the 2019 model, updates to the chassis geometry contribute to increased cornering performance and light handling.

Electronic Cruise Control

Electronic Cruise Control

Kawasaki’s cruise control system allows a desired speed to be maintained with the simple press of a button. Once activated, the rider does not have to constantly apply the throttle. This reduces stress on the right hand when traveling long distances, enabling relaxed cruising and contributing to a high level of riding comfort.

Air-Cooled Oil Cooler

Air-Cooled Oil Cooler

Based on feedback from Kawasaki’s WSB race machine, the new air-cooled oil cooler features an independent circuit – a design often seen on highperformance models.

Next-Generation Ninja Styling

Next-Generation Ninja Styling

The aerodynamic racer-inspired front cowl, highlighted by compact LED headlights, new Ram Air intake and a taller windshield, is the “face” of the Ninja ZX-10R’s nextgeneration Ninja styling.

TECHNOLOGY

 

ABS

ABS (Anti-lock Brake System) ensures stable braking performance by preventing wheel lock during braking.

 

 

KIBS

KIBS (Kawasaki Intelligent anti-lock Brake System) is a high-precision brake system designed specifically for supersport models, offering highly efficient braking while maintaining natural feel.

 

 

Horizontal Back-link Rear Suspension

Horizontal Back-link Rear Suspension arranges its shock unit horizontally, greatly contributing to efficient use of space and mass centralisation.

 

 

KQS – Kawasaki Quick Shifter

KQS (Kawasaki Quick Shifter) enables clutchless shifting.

 

KLCM

KLCM (Kawasaki Launch Control Mode) optimises acceleration from a stop by electronically managing engine output to prevent wheelspin.

 

 

KCMF – Kawasaki Cornering Management Function)

KCMF (Kawasaki Cornering Management Function) monitors engine and chassis parameters throughout the corner.

 

 

Electronic Throttle Valves

Electronic Throttle Valves allow the ECU to deliver the ideal amount of fuel and air to the engine.

 

KEBC – Kawasaki Engine Brake Control

Kawasaki Engine Brake Control allows riders to set engine braking according to preference.

 

 

IMU – Inertial Measurement Unit

Combined with Kawasaki’s proprietary dynamic modelling program, input from the IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit) enables even more precise chassis orientation awareness, the key to bringing Kawasaki’s electronics to the next level.

 

 

S-KTRC

S-KTRC (Sport-Kawasaki TRaction Control) is a racing technology-based predictive traction control system designed to help riders push harder on the racetrack by maximising acceleration.

 

 

Power Modes

Power Mode selection allows engine power delivery to be changed to suit the riding situation.

 

 

Electronic Cruise Control

Electronic Cruise Control allows vehicle speed to be fixed. Rider support technology that helps reduce rider fatigue on long trips and contributes to increased touring comfort.

 

 

Economical Riding Indicator

The Economical Riding Indicator is a mark appearing on the instrument panel to indicate favourable fuel consumption, encouraging fuel efficient riding.

 

 

Smartphone Connectivity

Smartphone connectivity contributes to an enhanced motorcycling experience by enabling riders to connect to their motorcycle wirelessly.
