The Ninja ZX-10R has clearly demonstrated its circuit potential through its superlative results in the Superbike World Championship (WSB) – in both years past (2nd in 2012, 1st in 2013, 2nd in 2014) and present, where Kawasaki riders have absolutely dominated the current season, culminating with the rider’s title for Jonathan Rea and the manufacturers championship title. With numerous parts benefiting from feedback from the Kawasaki Racing Team as well as ongoing development research, the new Ninja ZX-10R is the closest thing to a highly advanced factory superbike Kawasaki has yet to offer.
With increased performance designed to give it even quicker lap times on the track, the Ninja ZX-10R is well positioned to continue Kawasaki’s Ninja dominance on the world stage.
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.
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.
Designed using Kawasaki’s advanced dynamic rigidity analysis and a from-the-outside-in approach, swingarm with optimised rigidity contributes to nimbler handling.
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.
Shorter pistons (39.2 mm >> 37.7 mm) with revised crowns were designed to handle the loads of the more powerful engine. Each piston is 5 g lighter, contributing to improved response. Further, the pistons are made from a new material with superb heat resistance that offers increased toughness. Finally, a dry film lubricant coating on the piston skirts reduces friction at low rpm and helps with the piston bedding-in process.
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.
Crankshaft has a 20% lower moment of inertia. This revision – one of the most significant changes brought about by feedback from Kawasaki’s WSB factory team – benefits the bike’s overall performance: acceleration, deceleration and cornering are all improved. Engine response is improved as the engine is able to spin up more quickly. Reducing the moment of inertia offers handling benefits as well.
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.
A pair of massive φ330 mm Brembo semi-floating discs (previously φ310 mm) with a thickness of t5.0 mm deliver superb braking force. The stainless steel rotors offer high rigidity and contribute to excellent brake feel. To further improve the Ninja ZX-10R’s corner entry performance on the circuit, a high-spec Brembo front brake system was implemented. The Brembo system – very similar to the system used on the Ninja H2R – includes the best components available for a mass-production model. 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.
Designed to assist racers by optimising acceleration from a stop, KLCM electronically controls engine output to prevent wheelspin and minimise wheelies when launching. Riders can choose from three modes, each offering a progressively greater level of intrusion. Each mode allows the rider to launch from a stop with the throttle held wide open.
Hybrid predictive/feedback-type evolution of the highly sophisticated traction control system helps riders push harder by maximising acceleration. 5 modes enable expert riders to get even more serious enjoyment on the circuit. With the addition of the IMU, S-KTRC changes from a purely predictive system to one that also incorporates feedback. The new hybrid predictive/feedback system offers even more precise management to help an even greater range of riders experience riding at the limit. The compact IMU with 6 DOF: (degrees of freedom, 5 measured and I calculated by the ECU) complements the numerous parameters monitored by S-KTRC system.
The Kawasaki Engine Brake Control system allows riders to select the amount of engine braking they prefer.
When the system is activated (by selecting “L” (Light) in the “KEBC” settings), the engine braking effect is reduced, providing less interference when riding on the circuit. When activated, the “KEBC” indicator light on the instrument cluster will be illuminated.
