Kawasaki has just launched their latest 2018 Kawasaki ZX-10RR which comprises of mainly two colour changes to the components.

The 2018 ZX-10RR still carries its race-ready 998cc, liquid-cooled, inline-four, DOHC engine which has been slightly refined for better performance and reliability.

The latest generation ZX-10RR has been priced from £16,249 (around RM90,959) in the UK market.

Kawasaki has just revealed the latest generation superbike that is the 2018 Kawasaki ZX-10RR. Highly regarded as one of the best superbikes around and proven at the hands of the 2017 WorldSBK World Champion Jonathan Rea of Kawasaki Racing Team (KRT), the latest evolution comprises of mainly ‘two colour changes to the components’.

Based on the photos of the new ZX-10RR, these two colour changes are to its front fork reservoir canisters (which has been changed from red to silver) and fork top cap (from red to green). With such an impressive package and sheer dominance in this year’s WorldSBK season, Team Green is going ahead with the saying “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.”

So far in the ongoing WorldSBK season, the current 2017 Kawasaki ZX-10RR piloted by KRT riders Jonathan Rea and Tom Sykes have collected 13 race wins in the past 11 rounds (22 races) and a total of 35 podium finishes. Now those are some impressive numbers right there.

According to Kawasaki Motors Europe Director Morihiro Ikoma, he commented “In the hands of our KRT riders, Jonathan Rea and Tom Sykes, the Ninja ZX-10RR has achieved Superpole wins, fastest laps, race wins and, ultimately, the 2017 World SBK title in its first year of production. For motorcycle racing teams, track day enthusiasts and committed road riders, the 2018 Ninja ZX-10RR represents a great performance package and perfect base for racing success.”

The 2018 ZX-10RR still carries its race-ready 998cc, liquid-cooled, inline-four, DOHC engine which has been slightly refined for better performance and reliability when it comes to tearing up the circuits at incredible pace. In total, the latest Kawasaki crotch rocket produces a whopping 207hp at 13,000rpm (with RAM air) and 113.5Nm max torque upon hitting 11,500rpm.

Other top end features include KIBS (Kawasaki Intelligent anti-lock Brake System), ABS, horizontal back-link suspension, KLCM (Kawasaki Launch Control Mode), IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit), electronic throttle valves, KCMF (Kawasaki Cornering Management Function), S-KTRC (Sport-Kawasaki Traction Control), power modes and more. MUCH MORE.

Currently, the 2018 Kawasaki ZX-10RR has been priced from £16,249 (around RM90,959) in the UK but if it’s made available here in Malaysia, we won’t be surprised if it breaks the RM100,000 mark. Available only in the Ebony colour option for now.
