A completely new Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R is coming!

Kawasaki has always been about “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”, especially in WorldSBK where Jonathan Rea has been dominating over the years with his Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R. For next year, they will introduce a completely new model to further extend their advantage against the likes of the Ducati Panigale V4 R and the newly introduced BMW M 1000 RR.

The Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R has seen a number of minor updates, which has proven to be enough to fight against superbikes from other manufacturers. We saw that the Ducati Panigale V4 R certainly got a few rounds this season and we might just see more of that in 2021 if Kawasaki doesn’t do anything about it.

With Honda and its new CBR1000RR-R Fireblade SP catching up and the possibility of the BMW M 1000 RR being a potential threat, Kawasaki is said to be working on a new ZX-10R, one with a more powerful engine and better aerodynamic package.

Thanks to multiple requests from the Kawasaki Racing Team WorldSBK and their pleas to have a stronger bike that can rival the top speed of Ducati and Honda, Team Green will hopefully deliver a screamer for next season, one that’s capable of redlining at 15,600rpm – 1,000 more than the current Ninja.

Aerodynamic-wise, Kawasaki has been working on improving that aspect since last year and come next season, this new ZX-10R will most likely emerge with wings. This has proven to be beneficial, especially with Ducati earlier in the season. 2021 will be a good season to follow WorldSBK, folks. Will Kawasaki continue to dominate, or will there be a new champion on the horizon?
