2010 Ninja ZX-10R

Designed to offer a high-level base package, with the stock engine and chassis performance to satisfy even the most experienced riders, the already potent Ninja ZX-10R receives some clever fine-tuning and a revised styling package for 2010.

High-powered engine

Delivering 200 PS with Ram Air and a super-wide powerband, the Ninja ZX-10R’s engine has performance potential similar to Kawasaki factory superbike race machines.

Enhanced styling

New front cowl gives the Ninja ZX-10R a stronger family resemblance to its smaller sibling, the Ninja ZX-6R. Revisions to the minimalist bodywork and a new muffler design contribute to a lighter looking appearance.

Öhlins steering damper

Adjustable Öhlins steering damper with twin-tube design is fitted as standard equipment. The second tube, which acts like a reservoir tank, and the damper internals, ensure stable damping performance even under racing conditions. This race-quality unit was developed in collaboration with Öhlins specially for the Ninja ZX-10R.

Adjustable back-torque limiting clutch

Easily adjustable back-torque limiting clutch enables smooth downshifts. This highly acclaimed feature is one of the main contributors to the rear’s stable composure under hard braking.

Optimised sports ergonomics

Ergonomics; most especially the tank and seat, maximise the rider’s contact with the bike. The handlebar/seat/pegs relationship offers a naturally aggressive riding position, ideal for riding on the track.

Kawasaki Ignition Management System

In order to offer riders precise control of the engine’s powerful output, the Ninja ZX-10R is equipped with an advanced ignition management system. Designed to deliver precise power according to the rider’s intentions, the system ensures smooth throttle response, curtails sudden spikes in engine speed, and also effectively protects the engine and exhaust catalysers from damage.

Highly communicative chassis

The optimised stiffness balance of Kawasaki’s unique backbone twin-tube frame contributes to the ZX-10R’s superb rider feedback. Some of the chassis technology used included shaping the frame’s pressed parts: the convex pieces, not really noticeable to the naked eye, to help alleviate stress concentrations.


The 10R’s cluster instrument package features special UV-blocking glass, making the LED display brighter and easier to read. The depth effect of the LCD screen is striking while the colour-coded tachometer indicates an optimal operating rev range in green.
