Overview[edit]

Kawasaki ZX-10R Performance Edition







Kawasaki ZX-10R Performance Edition gets Akrapovic silencer along with double bubble screen, color coded seat cowl, mini front indicators, plus tank and knee pads, The silencer gives the ZX-10R a 5bhp power gain The Kawasaki ZX10R was changed quite dramatically in 2008, for 2010 ther have been a few further modifications in a bid to perfect this already formidable machine. Its track performance being the main focus. Without any loss of low and mid range performance this all new Kawasaki ZX10R got more top end power than ever before. - essentially this is a race ready engine.

Kawasaki have designed a type of traction control on this model of the ZX10R that greatly aids grip when slightly too much throttle has been applied by retarding ignition whilst still allowing more experienced and demanding riders the option of allowing the bike to move under them. The ZX10R comes atandard with a slipper clutch that also works superbly well.


The addition of secondary injectors to feed th ZX10R Power plant that are situated in the new oval inlet tract are there to ensure better throttle response particularly in the high rpm. areas whilst also improving the smooth low end power delivery.

The Speedo/Clock Cluster of the Kawasaki ZX10R has been designed in such a way that rider focus stays longer distance when glancing at the speedo thus ensuring that more time is spent focused on the road.

An adjustable Öhlins cross mounted steering damper with twin-tube design is fitted as standard equipment. The second tube, which acts like a reservoir tank, and the damper internals, ensure stable damping performance even under racing conditions. This race-quality unit was developed in collaboration with Öhlins specially for the Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R.

The major hurdle that faced the design team was to deliver as chassis on the Kawasaki ZX10R that gave the rider every bit of feedback that was required to make this machine a race winner. With this in mind, the services of top level racers were employed to test and retest the machine throughout its development.

It is not often that we see this, but the Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R is fitted as standard with a hugger that closely follows the rear wheel’s lines and protects the rear shock from dirt and debris. Further color coded options as well as color coded pillion seat covers are available from the range of accessories that Kawasaki offer for the Ninja ZX10R.
