After the global launch back in November 2020, Thailand was the first South-East Asia country to witness the arrival of the all-new 2021 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R.
Fast forward six months into 2021, the litre bike now lands in Indonesia with a price tag of IDR520 million (RM150,200).
The new generation ZX-10R received significant updates for 2021, including new bodywork and engine revisions that are now Euro 5 compliant.
The 998cc inline-four powerplant produces 200hp (210hp with RAM Air) @ 13,200rpm and 114Nm @ 11,400rpm.
Despite the headlight design gained a lot of criticism when an image of the bike was leaked ahead of its global reveal, the overall design was applauded after the official launch.
The new Ninja ZX-10R offers a lot of electronic aids, which includes:
- cruise control
- traction control system
- launch control
- cornering management function
- riding modes
- engine brake control
- intelligent ABS
- Ohlins electronic steering damper
Will it arrive here in Malaysia? Only time will tell.
The folks from Kawasaki Motors Malaysia have been pretty quiet ever since they took over Suzuki here in Malaysia, and even that brand has been under the radar despite all the hype presented on its official Facebook page.
