2021 NINJA ZX-10R for Sale at Bowen Hills Kawasaki in Bowen Hills, QLD | Specifications and Review Information
BUILDING ON PROVEN PERFORMANCE
The Ninja ZX-10R supersport bike is built for those who rise to the challenge. Hailing from the proving grounds of the FIM WorldSBK Championship, the Ninja ZX-10R motorcycle is the direct result of decades of world-class road racing innovation, carrying Kawasaki Racing Team (KRT) rider Jonathan Rea to six consecutive championship titles.
Our experience on the track has led to a potent 998cc four-cylinder engine, a race-optimized chassis and an innovative electronics package. Face Yourself and push your limits aboard the Ninja ZX-10R.
POWERFUL AND EFFIECIENT
Internal engine designs, from the lightweight crankshaft and pistons to the wide intake and exhaust ports, focus on producing peak power and delivering strong low to mid range power for quick acceleration.
WORLD SBK INSPIRED
Valve train inspired by Kawasaki's WorldSBK engineers is an example of top level racing technology. Finger-follower valve actuation enables a higher rev limit and more aggressive cam profiles - both contributing to high-rpm performance.
CONTROLLED POWER DELIVERY
47mm electronic throttle valves and 32-bit ECU operate with great precision to provide smooth engine response.
LIGHTWEIGHT AND BALANCED
The titanium alloy exhaust system is heat resistant, lightweight and positioned to create a low center of gravity for effective mass centralization and light handling.
UPDATED NINJA ZX-10R ENGINE
With a powerful 998 cm3, liquid cooled, 4-stroke in In-Line Four updates to the Ninja ZX-10R's powerful engine offers cleaner emissions while maintaining the performance of its predecessor. For the Ninja ZX-10R, a higher rev limit contributes to a wider powerband and increased circuit performance.
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 high performance models.
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 next generation Ninja styling.
The compact new 4.3" all-digital TFT colour instrumentation give the cockpit a high-tech, high-grade appearance. The new meter also offers additional features unavailable on the previous model.
Winglets built into the upper cowl generate downforce that helps keep the front wheel on the ground during strong acceleration.
A WINNING POSITION
The Ninja ZX-10R receives improved ergonomics for 2021. Wider handlebar and higher footpeg positions offer a more aggressive riding position, while a new seat design helps riders minimise drag on straightaways when tucked behind the taller windshield.
One of the lightest wheel designs in the market, the Ninja ZX-10R's gravity-cast wheels with their 3-spoke design offer an excellent balance of light weight and rigidity that contributes to edge grip when riding on the track. Bridgestone Battlax Racing Street RS11 tyres finish off the look.
KAWASAKI QUICK SHIFTER
The dual-direction Kawasaki Quick Shifter (KQS) system facilitates acceleration by allowing clutchless upshifts and downshifts while on the track. Designed for more effective sport riding, KQS can also be used on the street when the engine is above 2,500 rpm.
The highly advanced, compact IMU enables inertia along 6 Degrees of Freedom to be monitored. Acceleration along longitudinal, transverse and vertical axes plus roll rate and pitch are measured. The yaw rate is calculated by the ECU using Kawasaki's proprietary dynamic modelling software. Kawasaki's dynamic modelling software utilizes the Bosch IMU as a source of input then processes the input to provide electronic rider aides that support the rider's intentions while maintaining seamless performance.
Hybrid predictive/feedback-type evolution of the highly sophisticated traction control system helps racers push harder by maximizing acceleration. Five modes enable a greater range of feeling for specific track conditions and riding preferences. Updates to Modes 4 and 5 offer a more rider-friendly characteristic while cornering.
Input from the IMU enables cornering management which assists riders in holding their intended line through the corners on the track.
Specially developed Ohlins electronic steering damper provides just the right amount of damping based on vehicle speed and degree of acceleration or deceleration.
