Kawasaki Ninja ZX10R Design & Features 2023

Kawasaki Ninja ZX10R
Lime Green New KRT Edition Color.
  • As we all know Kawasaki has designed the ultimate 1000 cc bike which is Kawasaki Ninja H2.
  • It’s a really stunning bike with a supercharged engine no other bike can match the performance of the h2.
  • So Kawasaki decided to upgrade their Kawasaki Ninja ZX10R which is already a popular bike.
  • In 2021 company completely changed the front fairing of the bike & riding position.
Kawasaki Ninja ZX10R
Side View.
  • And when I first saw these changes on the bike I was amazed to see these changes.
  • Now let’s look at new features that make Kawasaki Ninja ZX10R a road-going missile.
  • We are familiar with the old 2020 Ninja ZX-10 R which has two symmetrical headlights on the front.
  • But just like Kawasaki Ninja H2, this new ZX 10 R delivers maximum aerodynamic performance.
Kawasaki Ninja ZX10R New Updates 2023
  • When you look at the front faring of the bike you will see sharp winglets.
  • These winglets are designed to create downforce and help to keep the front end on the ground.
  • Besides this, the previous Ninja ZX10R was equipped with halogen dual headlights.
  • But in 2023 our powerful ninja ZX-10 R gets smaller premium-led headlights that further enhance visibility at night.
Kawasaki Ninja ZX10R New Updates 2023
  • In between the headlight, there is a passage for engine breathing.
  • Actually through this passage air comes into the engine and creates the turbocharging effect.
  • This technology called Ram Air Induction technology it can be found on various bikes.
  • As Kawasaki said new ZX-10 is designed for track performance due to this they have added a tall windscreen.
Kawasaki Ninja ZX10R
Negotiating Corner.
  • By having this tall windscreen when you tuck in air will pass easily above the rider.
  • As a result, top speed can be achieved easily with less amount of air drag.
  • Just like the older ninja side fairing remains the same with some space to pass the hot engine air.
  • On the other hand, the saree guard has been removed because it’s not a pillion-friendly bike.
Kawasaki Ninja ZX10R
Rear Left Quarter View.
  • Moving on the speedometer unit is completely new and easy to use.
  • The speedometer is an all 4.3” TFT digital color instrument with a selectable screen background of black & white.
  • It shows gear position, upshift indicator, odometer, dual trip meter, water temp, average fuel, boost pressure, etc.
  • Now moving on to the rear tail position is high just like another superbike.
Kawasaki Ninja ZX10R
# Ninja In Action.
  • And we all know that these superbikes are not meant for city rides with a pillion.
  • At the rear, you will get Led Taillight and led Indicators with a new design.
  • But I like the BMW S 1000 RR because its brake lights are integrated with indicators.
  • And license plate holders and lights can be easily removed with a small effort.

Kawasaki ninja ZX10R Colors

Kawasaki Ninja ZX10R
Metallic Diablo Black.
  • In 2023 Kawasaki have added two new colors to the ZX10-R.
  • But Kawasaki is offering only two colors option with the Ninja ZX-10R.
  • Kawasaki Ninja ZX10R colors are Lime Green and pearl Robotic White color.
  • Besides this company is also offering KRT Edition color with Green/Ebony & Pearl Blizzard White.
Kawasaki Ninja ZX10R
Lime Green KRT Edition Color.
  • This Ninja ZX-10R KRT Edition looks cool and it’s popular I think the company should offer more colors.
  • And BMW is also offering two colors S 1000 RR and M 1000 RR.

Kawasaki ninja zx10r 2021 specs

Kawasaki Ninja ZX10R
New Valves & Throttle Bodies.
  • This new 2023 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R is using a 998 cc 4-stroke, in-line four 16-Valve liquid-cooled engine.
  • And this engine develops 203 bhp but with RAM air assist it pumps 213 bhp & 114 Nm torque.
  • And delivering all this power to the rear wheel is a 6-speed gearbox with KQS (Kawasaki Quick Shift).
Kawasaki Ninja ZX10R
Ninja Leaning on Left Side.
  • It means after 1st gear you can shift gears without using the clutch and downshift as well.
  • I am telling you this Ninja ZX-10R is road going missile all you need is the open flat road.
  • Ans it has an aggressive riding position handlebar is lower and the foot pegs are set 5 mm high than the previous one.
  • This means this bike is great for track use and if you are thinking about taking this bike for longer rides.
Kawasaki Ninja ZX10R New Updates 2023
# Ninja Parked On Side Stand.
  • This aggressive riding position will not let you do this at any cost.
  • I forgot to mention Kawasaki has added a new Air Cooled Oil Cooler below the water radiator.
  • It actually cools the engine oil by passing through the Oil cooler.
  • This oil comes into the oil cooler from the left side cools down and enters the engine from the right side.
Kawasaki Ninja ZX10R New Updates 2023
# Ninja Parked On Podium.
  • And it works independently and is not connected to the water radiator circuit.
  • Kawasaki also said that the new Ninja ZX-10R gets a valve train inspired by WORLDSBK.
  • This 998 cc engine has a Finger-Follower valve actuation that enables a higher rev limit & more aggressive cam profile.
  • Together deliver the mind-blowing performance you will know it when you will ride this amazing machine.

Kawasaki Ninja ZX10R Suspension

Kawasaki Ninja ZX10R New Updates 2023
Front Suspension, Brake foot Lever and exhaust.
  • Moving on to suspension up front we have Showa’s advanced 43 mm Balance free forks (BFF).
  • This suspension comes from the WorldSBK racing to give a performance during riding.
  • Besides this, the rear company is offering horizontal back-link rear suspension.
  • It features a compact and lightweight Showa balance-free cushion to provide comfort and sports performance.
  • This suspension I don’t think gives you comfortable riding but for track use, they offer great performance.

Kawasaki Ninja ZX10R Brakes

Kawasaki Ninja ZX10R
Exhaust & Sprocket.
  • Ninja ZX-10 R is provided with one of the best brakes on the market.
  • Up front, Kawasaki has provided a pair of 330 mm semi-floating discs that deliver superb braking force.
  • The brake system features dual radial mounted Brembo M-50 cast aluminium Monobloc callipers.
  • These are Brembo’s highest-grade mass-production brake calipers.
  • And at the rear Ninja ZX-10R gets a 220 mm disc with a single bore pin-slider caliper.
  • Lastly, want to say Brembo is one of the well-known companies providing brakes to various superbikes & cars.
  • Ducati Panigale V4 super bike and Bugatti Veyron

Kawasaki Ninja ZX10R Seat Height

Kawasaki Ninja ZX10R New Updates 2023
Function Controlling Buttons.
  • As I said at the start of this blog Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R has more aggressive riding than before.
  • But if you are more than 6 feet tall and more you can easily put your both feet on the ground.
  • And if you are near 5’6” or something it might be difficult for you to keep both feet on the ground.
  • And Kawasaki Ninja ZX10R seat height is 835 mm (32.9 in) and even BMW S1000 RR has the same 835 mm seat height.
  • Apart from that Kawasaki Ninja H2 has an 830 mm (32.7 in) seat height 5 mm less than the ZX-10R.
  • Ducati Panigale v4Sp also has an 835 mm seat height.

Kawasaki Ninja ZX10R Top Speed

  • Guys as we all know that due to gentle man’s agreement all superbike top speeds are limited to 299 kmph.
  • It’s necessary because of safety regulations and you need a long flat highway road to hit top speeds.
  • So Kawasaki Ninja ZX10R’s top speed is 299 kmph and the bike has the potential to hit more than 300 kmph speed.
  • If 299 kmph is not enough for you then Kawasaki Has Ninja H2R that is able to achieve 400 kmph top speed.

Kawasaki Ninja ZX10R Mileage

  • I think if you are having a high-performance bike you would not focus on the mileage.
  • Because the bike designed for performance can’t deliver good mileage.
  • And the bike that is designed for mileage can’t deliver performance.
  • But I will tell you the real mileage of the Kawasaki Ninja ZX10R mileage.
  • Actually, Kawasaki has added a feature that shows real-time mileage and distance covered.
  • Next, you need to reset the fuel and kilometre by pressing the reset button on the left side of the grip.
  • And ride the bike and it will show you the exact mileage figure.
  • So Kawasaki Ninja ZX10R’s mileage is 15.8 kmpl or 9.8 MPG combined.

Kawasaki Ninja ZX10R Max Speed

  • As tested on open highways Kawasaki Ninja ZX10R’s max speed is 299 kmph.
  • And the speedometer doesn’t show more than 299 kmph max speed.

Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10RR (Limited Edition) 2023

Kawasaki Ninja ZX10R New Updates 2023
# Ninja ZX-10RR Limited Edition.
  • We talked a lot about the Ninja ZX-10R but many people don’t know that there is a Ninja model with more performance.
  • Because present time competition is getting higher and higher.
  • Ducati has Panigale V4 and V4 S and they also have a high-performance Superleggera V4.
  • And BMW also has S 1000 RR but they also have a more powerful and lightweight BMW M 1000 RR.
  • A similar case with the Suzuki GSX-R1000R but they also have Suzuki GSX1000RZ
  • To compete with these superbikes Kawasaki also launched a limited production bike called Ninja ZX-10RR.

Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R Expert Opinion

Watch a detailed ride review of the 2023 Ninja ZX-10R
  • After searching and reading about the Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R a lot.
  • I came up with the opinion that the Ninja ZX-10R is one of the most affordable bikes.
  • It’s not only affordable but offers mind-blowing performance.
  • And most people still like the design of the 2020 Ninja ZX-10R.
  • After adding a new front fairing that looks like the Kawasaki Ninja H2 it becomes more aerodynamic.
  • This time company added a new wide handlebar and foot pegs further set 5 mm higher than the previous bike.
  • And there is a new 4” TFT touch added to provide full info about the bike.
  • Now if you buy Ninja ZX-10R standard it will come as a single seater but I think there is an option of the pillion seat.
  • But the thing I personally didn’t like is its riding position it’s more aggressive than the previous one.
  • I am saying that when you sit on the bike & put your foot on the pegs.
  • Your knees get high it’s good when you are riding on the track but not comfortable when you are on the road.
  • Ninja ZX-10R is not a comfortable bike but after spending some time you will get used to it.
  • Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R is also available in a smaller capacity engine called Ninja ZX-6R.

I Like

  • Aerodynamic Design.
  • Engine Performance.
  • Electronic Riding Aid.

I Don’t Like

  • Aggressive Riding position.

Guys in this blog I have tried to show information on the newly launched Ninja ZX-10 R as much as possible.

If you like this blog then don’t forget to share it with your friends.

Thank You
