This baby has been specifically-developed for superior performance based on the race machine used by Jonathan Rea and the Kawasaki Racing Team (KRT) in WorldSBK. This multiple-championship-winning machine gave Rea four straight championship victories in the premier class and now, 500 lucky owners around the world are able to enjoy the same feeling.
Powered a powerful 998cc inline-four engine, the new 2019 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10RR now produces 201hp but with better overall performance thanks to new titanium parts and a redesigned crankshaft plus a rise in the previously flat torque curve. This means that the ZX-10RR is able to produce more power but at the same time offer better rideability for those looking for the ultimate precision machine.
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, Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa SP rubbers, and more.
As stated earlier, the new Ninja ZX-10RR is limited in production to just 500 units worldwide and KMSB is targeting in getting the biggest allocation for the Asian region. According to Dato’ Jeffrey Lim Chee Sing, General Manager & Director of KMSB, they’re planning to bring in around 10-20 units here in Malaysia if all goes well.
