The History Of Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R Motorcycle

The Ninja ZX-10R is a Kawasaki sport bike, and the follow-up to the ZX-9R. It was originally released in 2004 with minor revisions in 2005. It combines an ultra-narrow chassis, low weight, and radial brakes. In 2004 and 2005 the ZX-10R won Best Superbike from Cycle World magazine and the prestigious international Masterbike competition. According to data published in 2007 by the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety in the USA, the ZX-10R has that country’s highest collision damage loss claim rate of any motorcycle registered between 2000 and 2006. Kawasaki engineers utilized a “stack” design for a liquid-cooled, 998 cc inline four-cylinder engine. The crank axis, input shaft and output shaft of the “Ninja” ZX-10R engine are positioned in a triangular layout to reduce engine length, while the high-speed generator is placed behind the cylinder bank to reduce engine width. With a bore and stroke of 76*55 mm, the ZX-10R engine’s one-piece cylinder and crankcase assembly reduces weight and increases rigidity. The DOHC are machined from chromoly steel built for strength, four valves per cylinder improve high-rpm breathing, and the forged, lightweight pistons offer high heat resistance to further enhance the bike’s power-to-weight ratio.

The Ninja ZX-10R was debut of 2004. It was compact, with a short wheelbase and a high power-to-weight ratio, which helped the handling. The exhaust system was fully titanium with single muffler. Among other changes, the 2006 model featured twin underseat exhausts which contributed to a 5 kg increase in dry weight. The engine remained largely unchanged. The 2006 ZX1000D6F model carried over to the 2007 model year, with only color scheme changes. The most noticeable difference between 2006 and 2007, is that the heat-shields on the exhaust pipes are black on the 2007 ZX10R, and 2006 came with silver ones. The ZX-10R was all new for its launch for the 2008 model year. There was a dramatic change in appearance with the bike featuring a much more angular front end. Kawasaki moved away from the twin-underseat exhausts of the 2006–2007 model to a more conventional single side exhaust. The compression ratio of the engine was raised. The 2009 modle received only slight changes from the 2008. Received slight changes from the 2009 model, including: upgraded Öhlins steering damper, upgraded transmission, and revised bodywork. The 2011 ZX-10R underwent major overhaul both mechanically and visually. Most notably, Kawasaki introduced their S-KTRC system as a standard feature; responsible for predicting when traction will be lost and adapting accordingly. Also new are KIBS as their optional ABS system, a completely new design, adjustable foot-pegs, larger throttle bodies, a horizontal rear suspension, lighter three-spoke wheels, Showa Big Piston Fork front suspension, and an LCD panel dashboard.

Kawasaki ZX-10R liter-class sportbike gets an array of small upgrades for 2010. Although the aim is to offer maximum performance on the racetrack, “the same power and handling that provide such amazing on-track performance also make it more fun for riding on the street,” says Kawasaki’s PR team. Inside the engine the 10R receives the same transmission technology used on the 2009 ZX-6R. These internal modifications are designed to reduce play in the shift mechanism and give the rider a more precise feel through the lever. The Ohlins twin-tube steering damper also receives internal modifications for improved performance. A separate spring and free piston were added to the reservoir tube for more damping, while a titanium finish and laser-etched logo highlight the external differences. Other external differences include a lighter, single-piece front fairing, said to “reduce the visual weight of the ZX-10R’s front end.” New inner panels also provide a “tidier look” around the handlebar area, while sharper side panels now feature more black in their design, further helping the bike look more compact. This is rounded out with a new muffler that has a dimpled surface pattern, metallic grey finish and a more compact end cap – all aimed to make it look smaller and more “sinister” according to Kawasaki.
