Green Kawasaki Ninja ZX10R

The Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R Kawasaki is the evolution of the ZX-9R sport motorcycle. It was originally published in 2004 with minor amendments in 2005, it combines ultra-tight chassis, low weight, radial brakes, and a strong engine to be a very competitive for its Japanese rivals: Suzuki GSX-R 1000, Honda CBR1000RR and Yamaha Motor Company R1. In 2004 and 2005, the ZX-10R won Best Round of Superbike World magazine and Masterbike prestigious international competition. It is known to be the most “hard edged” focused on race or to Japanese four-cylinder in-line motorcycle, with relatively quick steering and a fierce power.

A complete overhaul of the ZX-10R in 2006 saw the most comprehensive set of s since the bike was introduced.

Kawasaki engineers used a “cell” for the design extremely compact, liquid-cooled, 998 cc in-line four-cylinder engine. The axis of the crankshaft, tree and the output shaft of the “Ninja” ZX-10R engine are placed in a triangular layout to reduce the length of the engine, while the high speed generator is placed behind the cylinder bank to reduce the width of the engine. With a bore and racing 76 x 55 mm, the ZX-10R engine one-piece crankcase and cylinder assembly reduces the weight and increase rigidity. The dual cam general are machined from billet chromoly steel for strength, four valves per cylinder improve high-rpm breathing, and false, lightweight pistons offer high heat resistance to further improve the bike power – weight.

Cooling system

In addition to coolant, the ZX-10R has an engine oil cooler next to the oil filter to reduce the temperature of oil. “Slosh” analysis was also used to design the internal structure of the crankcase oil, thus reducing the losses of wind and help maintain low temperature of the oil. The radiator is provided by Denso and helps reduce weight.


A multi-plate clutch wet with a torque limiter return transfers power to a six-speed, close ratio transmission ideal for closed-course competition. The back-torque limiter automatically disengage under the clutch and braking deceleration to prevent rear wheel hop during corner entry, commonly known as “support” (looks good when done properly). It also ensures complete control under heavy braking.


A new speaks six wheels design is claimed to be almost as light as the race for special wheels. The profile of the flanks of the rear tire was increased from 190/50/ZR17 to 190/55/ZR17.

model 2008
This article or section contains information on a scheduled or anticipated future motorcycle.
It is likely to contain information of a speculative nature, but is generally from the press motorbikes, motorcycle media press releases, or other sources of information. The content and specifications for motorcycles May next significantly while the motorcycle is quasi-production and more information becomes available. Next motorcycles are also subject to delays or even cancellation by the manufacturer.

The model 2006 ZX1000D6F deferred to the 2007 model year, with only minor s colors. The most noticeable difference between 2006 and 2007, is that the heat shield on the exhaust pipes are black on ZX10R le’07,’06 and provided with money. The ZX-10R is provided for all new for model year 2008.

Introduction initial for 2008 is now available on the official website of Kawasaki, including the first images.
