Kawasaki ZX-10R Ninja for 2016

The new 2016 Ninja ZX-10R from Kawasaki is expected to be packed even tighter with features and race-derived technology that will leave most of the competition way behind. The liquid-cooled DOHC engine dimensions are the same at 76mm bore x 55mm stroke giving a familiar 998cc. Transmission is still 6-speed via a wet multi-plate slipper clutch.

 

The weight is still around 450lbs, all up. But what makes this motorcycle so far ahead is the on-board electronic package which includes: Kawasaki Launch Control Mode (KLCM), Sport Kawasaki Traction Control (S-KTRC), Kawasaki Engine Braking Control, Electronic Throttle Valve (ETV) and Kawasaki Quick Shifter (KQS). In other words, this bike knows how fast you're travelling, how much you're leaning, how fast you're accelerating, how hard you're braking, and probably how much insurance you're carrying. And that will be a lot.

 

There are 3 selectable power modes, too. Braking has been improved. The steering angle has been revised. This bike is going to set a lot of hearts on fire. It's also going to make old school seat-of-the-pants riders groan. No price yet. If you want to view Kawasaki's official video, check the link below.
