Buyer’s Guide Model Detail

Buyer's Guide > Ninja ZX-10R
Colours shown may not be available in Canada.
Kawasaki has revamped the ZX-10R, and although the engine and frame are retained with some modifications, the big changes are in the suspension and electronics, which are heavily inspired by Kawasaki's WSBK racers. New electronics include a five-mode, predictive-feedback traction control system and a quick shifter that works on up and down shifts. The revised suspension includes a Balance Free Front Fork, identifiable by its external compression chambers, a first on a production bike.
