“This new Ninja is all about going faster more easily”, say factory racers and their crew chiefs.

After winning the World SBK in 2013 with Tom Skyes onboard and again in 2015 with Jonathan Rea, Kawasaki fans would no doubt have high expectations for the 2016 Ninja.

Easier said than done if the green machine is to stay on par with the Yamaha R1. Good new is looks like the fans won’t be disappointed, well at least not on paper.

About the only thing carried over from the previous model is the engine’s bore/stroke; five-axis IMU just part of a full complement of racing-derived electronics

Down to the finest details, everything that goes into the Ninja ZX-10R has the sole purpose of making it the fastest bike on the track. And as a direct recipient of what the Kawasaki Racing Team (KRT) learns, the Ninja ZX-10R is equipped with championship-proven technology that makes it fully capable of dominating the streets too.
