Kawasaki-2018 NINJA ZX-10R KRT EDITION

LIGHTER CRANKSHAFT

Crankshaft has a low moment of inertia. This is - one of the most significant changes brought about by feedback from Kawasaki's WSBK factory team - benefits the bike's overall performance: acceleration, deceleration and cornering are all improved. Engine response is improved as the engine is able to spin up more quickly. Reducing the moment of inertia offers handling benefits as well.
Kawasaki-2018 NINJA ZX-10R KRT EDITION

MULTI FUNCTION MODE SELECTOR

The choice of Power Mode (3 modes), S-KTRC (5 modes + OFF, KQS, KLCM, KEBC functions are controlled using a multi-function button located at the left handle.

Kawasaki-2018 NINJA ZX-10R KRT EDITION

KAWASAKI QUICK SHIFTER

Fitted standard, KQS helps riders maximise their acceleration on the circuit when needed by enabling them to shift gears while keeping the throttle fully open. Complementing the Ninja ZX-10R's increased circuit potential, a contactless-type quick shifter enables quick upshifts for seamless acceleration. The system detects that the shift lever has been actuated, and sends a signal to the ECU to cut ignition so that the next gear can be engaged without having to use the clutch. (Clutch use is recommended for downshifts.)
Kawasaki-2018 NINJA ZX-10R KRT EDITION

KAWASAKI LAUNCH CONTROL

Designed to assist riders by optimising acceleration from a stop, KLCM electronically controls engine output to prevent wheelspin and minimise wheelies when launching.
  • Riders can choose from three modes, each offering a progressively greater level of intrusion.
  • Each mode allows the rider to launch from a stop with the throttle held wide open.
