Kawasaki Ninja 10R


The motorcycle delivers a great mix between handling power and practicality, being perfectly suited for both racetracks and city streets. Power comes from a 998 cc, four-stroke, liquid-cooled, DOHC, four valves per cylinder, inline-four engine which transfers its power to the rear wheel through a six speed transmission with an adjustable back-torque limiting clutch that facilitates smooth downshifts.

Pursuing Perfection, Achieving Dominance

Kawasaki developed the ZX-10R’s electronic steering damper in joint cooperation. Controlled by a dedicated ECU located under the gas tank cover, this damper reacts to the rate of acceleration or deceleration, as well as rear wheel speed, to help provide the ideal level of damping force across a wide range of riding scenarios.
