2021 Kawasaki Ninja ZX10R and ZX10RR revealed

The new ZX10R comes with an updated engine and a revised chassis.

Kawasaki has taken the wraps off the 2021 ZX10R and ZX10RR superbikes. Both variants of the bike get a multitude of updates including a Euro5 compliant engine.

The new ZX10R is based on a revised chassis. The swingarm pivot point has been lowered by 1 mm and the swingarm itself is 8 mm longer. These modifications are said to improve handling and cornering performance of the bike. The redesigned bodywork is claimed to increase downforce and reduce drag. The bike has a taller windscreen and twin LED headlights up front.

The ZX10R is powered by a 998cc, liquid-cooled, 4-cylinder engine that produces 200 BHP @ 13,200 rpm and 115 Nm @ 11,400 rpm. It features redesigned intake ports and valvetrain, titanium intake and exhaust valves and Diamond-Like Carbon (DLC) coating on finger-followers. The bike is fitted with a Showa Balance Free fork at the front and a monoshock at the rear. It also gets an electronic Ohlins steering damper and a quick-shifter.

The bike comes with traction control with 5 settings, cornering ABS, launch control, 3 power modes, engine braking control, Bosch six-axis IMU, Kawasaki Cornering Management Function (KCMF), Kawasaki Intelligent anti-lock Brake System (KIBS), 4.3-inch digital instrument cluster with Bluetooth connectivity and Rideology App support.

The ZX10R is available in two colour options – Metallic Spark Black/Metallic Matte Carbon Gray and the KRT Edition in Lime Green/Ebony/Pearl Blizzard White. The ZX10RR comes in a single shade of Lime Green.
