Proud of its place at the head of the normally aspirated Ninja line, the Ninja ZX-10R accelerates into 2024 as the base model for the Kawasaki Racing Team to create their KRT WorldSBK racer from. Complete with a much talked about integrated bodywork aero package, the ZX-10R also features an impressive array of rider aids including a launch control mode for clean track day getaways plus Bosch IMU monitored systems including sports traction control and both integrated riding modes and power modes.
Add an up/down quick shifter, close-ratio transmission and mix in Brembo braking plus such everyday conveniences as electronic cruise control and the legend that is the ZX-10R is ready to break hearts and lap times in the coming year. Naturally available in the much-demanded core colourway of Lime Green/Ebony, the mighty Ninja will also appear in a new option of Metallic Graphite Gray/Metallic Diablo Black for 2024.
At the other end of the capacity spectrum - but evoking the looks and excitement of the ZX-10R - is the Ninja 125 ready to thrill riders in the A1 licence class. Available in Lime Green/Ebony, a new colour choice is revealed in 2024 with Metallic Spark Black/Metallic Graphite Gray now available.
Equipped with a durable and “leaner proof” 125cm3 4-stroke Single cylinder engine, the Ninja 125 offers an Ergo-fit high seat option and all-digital instrumentation atop a full-sized chassis clothed in evocative angular Ninja bodywork complete with Uni-trak rear suspension and ABS as standard.
In the highly popular mid-capacity range, the Ninja 650 shines as an A2 licence-complaint model that represents a great balance between performance and chassis dynamics.
Replete with LED headlamps and TFT colour meters with Bluetooth Smartphone connectivity, KTRC three option traction control features alongside horizontal back link suspension plus assist and slipper clutch all clothed in sleek and dynamic Ninja bodywork. Colours for 2024 are Metallic Matte Graphenesteel Gray/Ebony, Lime Green/Ebony and a new colour option, Ebony/Candy Lime Green/Metallic Matte Dark Gray.
Also present in the Ninja stable for 2024 are the forced induction Ninja H2 SX and Ninja H2 SX SE plus the universally praised Ninja 1000SX.
Boasting a vast spec list, the onboard front and rear radar equipped Metallic Diablo Black Ninja H2 SX puts the rider first offering an unmatched level of sophistication including forward collision warning (FCW), blind spot detection (BSD) and adaptive cruise control (ACC). The tech extends further with the convenience of uphill getaways eased by Vehicle Hold Assist (VHA) and the reassurance of a pulsing emergency stop signal (ESS).
The unique to Kawasaki balanced supercharged engine delivers a precision blend of touring torque and supersport performance while the Kawasaki SPIN system offers a wide range of both on board entertainment plus vehicle and ambient conditions information. Add KIPASS keyless ignition, tyre pressure monitoring and a vast array of rider aids including up/down quick shifter, cruise control and integrated braking (to name but a few) and the Ninja H2 SX seems the logical choice for continent crushing touring aided by an optional sleek integrated clean mount luggage system. And to add the icing on the cake, the partner model of the H2 SX, the H2 SX SE adds Showa electronically damped suspension to the mix with Skyhook technology as well as Brembo’s top of line Stylema front brake calipers.
Chosen mount of many thousands of sport tour fans, the Ninja 1000SX assured its place in the 2024 range as one of the most successful and popular machines of its type in recent years. Gaining instant attention on showroom floors, the new iterations of Ninja 1000SX are all updated visually with two new paint schemes and one updated paint treatment. Colours for 2024 are a new Metallic Diablo Black/Metallic Phantom Silver/Metallic Carbon Gray combination plus Metallic Matte Graphite Gray/Metallic Diablo Black which is also new and the highly popular Emerald Blazed Green/Metallic Matte Graphenesteel Gray/Metallic Diablo Black look that has been refined for the new sales year.
Successfully mixing superports looks and attitude with impressive touring ability the “best of both worlds“ credentials of the Ninja 1000SX remain firmly in the spotlight for the coming year with the excitement of a standard fit up/down quick shifter and an assist and slipper clutch allied to power modes and rider modes plus an easy to read TFT dash that can link to the riders’ Smartphone via Kawasaki’s Rideology app.
Enjoying great wind protection and listening to the howl of the free revving classic in line four, Ninja 1000SX riders in 2024 can join the party and understand why this – and other 2024 Ninja machines – feature so strongly as a prominent brand family in the overall Kawasaki range for the coming year.
