Bosch IMU (Inertia Measurement Unit)

Bosch IMU (Inertia Measurement Unit)

Compact IMU operates in 6 DOF (degrees of freedom): 5 measured + 1 calculated. Combined with Kawasaki’s proprietary dynamic modelling program, input from the IMU enables even more precise chassis orientation awareness, the key to bringing Kawasaki’s electronics to the next level.

Cornering management function

Cornering management function

Feedback from the IMU enables the addition of a new function. The new cornering management function uses KIBS and S-KTRC to assist riders in tracing their intended line through the corner.

WSB-Developed Balance Free Front Fork

WSB-Developed Balance Free Front Fork

The Ninja ZX-10R features a new front fork jointly developed with Showa in the Superbike World championship. Tested in world racing competition this technology, coming directly from Kawasaki’s factory race machine, is making its mass-production debut on the new Ninja ZX-10R. 

Electronic throttle valves

Electronic throttle valves

Electronic throttle valves allow the ECU to deliver the ideal amount of fuel and air to the engine. The system also enables more precise control of S-KTRC, as well as implementation of systems like KLCM and Kawasaki Engine Brake Control.

Electronic steering damper

Electronic steering damper

Specially developed Öhlins electronic steering damper
provides just the right amount of damping based on vehicle speed and degree of acceleration or deceleration. Revised settings were optimised for the racetrack and winding roads.

High-visibility instrumentation

High-visibility instrumentation

The centrepiece of the Ninja ZX-10R’s instrument panel is the highly visibly LED-backlit bar-graph tachometer.

Aerodynamic bodywork

Aerodynamic bodywork

Larger upper cowl cuts through the air more efficiently, and offers the rider greater wind protection, making it easier to shift position for corner entry when riding on the track.

Swingarm with optimised rigidity

Swingarm with optimised rigidity

Designed using Kawasaki’s advanced dynamic rigidity analysis and a from-the-outside-in approach, swingarm with optimised rigidity contributes to nimbler handling

Kawasaki Quick Shifter

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.  

Aluminium twin-spar frame

Aluminium twin-spar frame

Revised geometry care of a steering head moved closer to the rider, and a longer swingarm put more weight on the front for increased corner entry stability and confidence on the circuit.

Cylinder Head Ready for High-Lift Cams

Cylinder Head Ready for High-Lift Cams

Previously a feature unique to the Ninja ZX-10RR, now the cylinder head of all models provides the clearance to accommodate race-kit high-lift cams.  * Race-kit high-lift cams and valve springs offer increased high-rpm performance.  

High-performance Brembo Brake System

High-performance Brembo Brake System

Dual high-spec Brembo M50 monobloc calipers gripping larger ø330 mm discs, specially prepared radial-pump master cylinder and race-quality steel-braided lines deliver next-level braking performance.

Horizontal Back-link rear suspension

Horizontal Back-link rear suspension

This rear suspension arrangement offers excellent performance while contributing to mass centralisation.
Revised linkage ratios offer a more linear feeling, which makes suspension adjustments easier to feel.

BFRC lite

BFRC lite

Showa’s new BFRC lite (Balance Free Rear Cushion) shock unit is lighter and more compact than their earlier units. The new shock contributes to increased traction and superb shock-absorption performance.

Titanium exhaust

Titanium exhaust

Heat-resistant titanium header pipes and silencer contribute to performance, long-lasting durability, light weight and mass centralisation.

Track-focused 998 cm3 liquid-cooled, 4-stroke In-line Four

Track-focused 998 cm3 liquid-cooled, 4-stroke In-line Four

All-new in 2011, the Ninja ZX-10R’s engine balanced stunning power with manageability, and facilitated getting back on the gas by moving peak torque higher up in the rpm range. The new engine maintains this essential character, but offers a stronger low-mid range for increased acceleration coming out of corners. 

Cassette transmission

Cassette transmission

Race-style cassette transmission facilitates gear ratio changes to suit track conditions. The “cassette” is located high enough that it can be accessed without having the engine oil drain out.

TEKNOLOGI

KIBS

KIBS

KIBS (Kawasaki Intelligent Anti-Lock Brake System) er et høypresisjons bremsesystem designet spesielt for supersport-modeller, og tilbyr høyeffektiv bremsing samtidig som den opprettholder en naturlig følelse.
