Kawasaki announced the newest model to its 2016 lineup, the world-class power and championship-proven new Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R super sport motorcycle. Bred for the racetrack with Kawasaki Racing Team (KRT) expertise, the 2016 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R brings innovative performance the next level with a new engine, chassis, state-of-the-art electronics package and much more.

  • New: track-focused 998cc, inline four-cylinder engine updated to deliver more peak power and stronger low-mid range power
  • New: Brembo® front brake system featuring high-spec M50 monobloc calipers, larger 330mm discs, specially tuned radial-pump master cylinder
  • New: WSB-developed Balance Free Front Fork is exclusive to the Ninja ZX-10R and provides superb damping response
  • New: Bosch Inertia Measurement Unit (IMU) measures on 5 degrees of axis and together with the ECU, programmed with Kawasaki proprietary logic, measures a 6th axis for precise chassis orientation awareness bringing the Kawasaki integrated suite of electronics to the next level

"Despite winning the 2015 World Superbike championship in dominant fashion with Jonathan Rea, and the 2013 title before that with Rea's teammate Tom Sykes, Kawasaki isn't resting on its laurels when it comes to its aging Ninja ZX-10R platform and today announced its successor in the 2016 Ninja ZX-10R", according to

"About the only thing carried over from the previous model is the engine's bore/stroke; five-axis IMU just part of a full complement of racing-derived electronics", according to

The new 2016 sportbike motorcycle will be available at Chaparral Motorsports.
