In this official video released on the Kawasaki Motors YouTube channel, all the technical details of the 2011 ZX-10R Ninja are thoroughly explained as the camera pans around the superbike.
The 2011 ZX10R was one of the most anticipated superbikes, and was completely redesigned, not only to be faster and lighter than competition from fellow Japanese manufacturers Yamaha, Kawasaki or Honda, but but also more technically evolved by offering the most advanced traction-control system in all of production motorcycling.
The faster and lighter elements of the 2011 ninja motorcycle can be attributed to a redesign of the ZX-10R’s engine, frame, suspension, bodywork, instrumentation and wheels. But the advancement in electronics comes from the MotoGP-derived Sport-Kawasaki Traction Control, or S-KTRC.
Although the numbers weren’t officially released, the ZX-10 R is said to have 158 rear-wheel horsepower (not at the crank). This is assumed to be the answer to the BMW S1000RR, which has 168.1 rwh (193 at crank).
The officially numbers should be released soon…but as for now, everything else about the 2011 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R is explained in this video.
