2011 Kawasaki ZX-10R Ninja | Quick Look

2011 Kawasaki Motorcycle

For 2011, Kawasaki completely redesigned its flagship and have made it smaller, lighter, and considerably more powerful.

Upping the ante to 197 horsepower (EPA watchdogs are rumored to have forced Kawasaki into a 20 horsepower reduction for America), the big Ninja has class-topping rider customizable traction control, an instrument display switchable between street and track settings, and ABS.

With a stacked gearbox, the all new-engine is even more compact than its predecessor; a completely new chassis and longer swingarm transforms handling too. Standard equipment is a Bosch developed multi- sensor racetrack ABS that only adds seven pounds in weight.
