Limited to 500 units worldwide! KAWASAKI “Ninja ZX-10RR” on sale in Japan in June


KAWASAKI announced a few days ago that it will launch the Ninja ZX-10RR, which is limited to only 500 units worldwide, on June 25th (Friday).

The Kawasaki Racing Team, which has won six consecutive victories in the World Superbike Championship (WSBK), will get the most powerful weapon on the road to winning streak in the new season, and that is the newly revised Ninja ZX-10RR.

The new Ninja ZX-10R not only has greater potential in racing, but also enjoys more fun in street riding. The “River Mark” on the forehead proves that this is a flagship model that integrates all the technologies of the Kawasaki Heavy Industries Group.

The new Ninja ZX-10R also uses a new generation of Ninja style, such as the front fairing that integrates aerodynamic characteristics and small headlights, which can produce excellent aerodynamic performance and downforce. In addition, the high-efficiency cooling effect of the gas-oil cooler feedback from the competition also brings high engine performance.

In addition to the above-mentioned Ninja ZX-10R equipment, the Ninja ZX-10RR, which is limited to only 500 units in the world, uses Pankl titanium alloy connecting rods and Marchesini forged wheels. This change reduces the weight of the cylinder head by 500g and the speed red line is also increased by 400rpm to 14,000rpm , Other differences from ZX-10R include:
