2018 Kawasaki NINJA ZX-10RR


With limited global production, the Ninja® ZX™-10RR motorcycle is built upon Kawasaki’s WorldSBK championship experience. Equipped with race-derived upgrades and designed to win races, any equipment that doesn’t quicken lap times is eliminated.


  • Race-ready 998 cc engine.
  • Modified cylinder head, Diamond-Like Carbon (DLC) coated tappets, and stronger reinforced, highly rigid crankcase. Race-kit camshafts available.
  • KQS (Kawasaki Quick Shifter) allows clutchless upshifts and downshifts. Marchesini 7-spoke forged aluminum wheels and high-performance Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa SP tires.
  • The imposing stealth-like matte black color and graphic scheme is used by the Kawasaki WorldSBK team during their off-season test sessions and features minimal white graphics incorporating a snowflake with the Japanese symbol for winter. The Winter Test Edition allows you to get closer to what factory racers and test riders experience.
  • Marchesini 7-spoke forged aluminum wheels and high-performance Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa SP tires.
