    Default The new Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10RR unveiled at Intermot 2016

    New Ninja ZX-10RR – Get Even closer

    With SBK Championship success in 2013 and, most recently, in 2015, the Ninja ZX-10R package is a proven race winner. Now Kawasaki is taking the next logical step in the litre class Supersports arena and has created the Ninja ZX-10RR, a machine focused on podium potential and street exclusivity.

    With its RR logo on the right side engine cover and resplendent in the evocative Kawasaki Racing Team black and white “Winter Test” livery, a host of engineering and performance features set the single seat machine apart from its peers.

    Featuring a modified cylinder head equipped to take higher lift racing camshafts and new reinforced crankcases for increased durability, the RR also benefits from tappets with DLC low friction surface coating for reduced mechanical loss – essential on a race tuned engine.

    In terms of chassis upgrades, the lightweight forged aluminum Marchesini wheels reduce un-sprung weight while the combination of Brembo M50 monobloc calipers, laterally grooved Brembo disc rotors plus a Brembo radial pump master cylinder and steel braided hoses ensure that braking performance is of track quality as standard.

    The addition of down as well as up gear selection on the KQS Kawasaki Quick Shifter is a welcome feature as is the race kit accessory option of head pipe angle and rear pivot point adjustment. Matched to the impressive Showa advanced balanced free front fork the horizontal Back-link, BFRC lite gas-charged shock with piggyback reservoir offer a wide range of adjustability to suit any road or race track environment.

    In terms of road riding sophistication, the ZX-10RR is equipped with an IMU offering six degrees of machine attitude measurement and an impressive number of advanced rider aids including sports traction control, electronic engine brake control, launch control, intelligent anti-lock brakes and Kawasaki’s KCMF cornering management function ensuring riders hit their chosen apex every time.

    Taking the existing Ninja ZX-10R with its race focused reduced inertia engine to the next level, the new Ninja ZX-10RR – which is limited to just 500 units across the whole of Europe - looks destined to feature prominently in Superstock and Superbike paddocks during 2017 as well as in the garages of a lucky few discerning street focused riders.

    Default Is Kawasaki Zx10-RR a Zx10-R on steroids?

    What's up guys!! Revminister here!!

    And today I am talking about the all new*2017 Kawasaki Zx10-RR.

    What Kawasaki has done is that they have taken a bike which is already fantastic and have made it even better!! So basically the*Zx10-RR is a Zx10-R on steroids.

    So without any further ado, lets see what that extra R really means?

    The RR comes in the winter testing paint scheme, which looks absolutely awesome on it. The extra R means that the bike is racier then the normal Zx10-R. And also gets some bits and pieces which the Zx10-R doesn't have! Stuff like the Marchesini forged rims which are lighter and help the bike to turn faster.

    The Zx10-R only had the*M50 calipers*and it missed the steel braided lines which are here now. The Zx10-RR varient gets*steel braided lines*which allow the bike to stop faster.

    It also gets the*Kawasaki quick shifter*as standard. Which allows you the down shift without the clutch. And because this is a racier version you don't get rear seat and rear foot pegs.

    To keep up the racing spirit you get super sticky*Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa SP tires.*Which allow you to exploit the full potential of the*bike.

    The engine of the 2016 Zx10-R has been tuned*so that it can accommodate the height of the new and*lighter cam shaft.*Also the engine casing on RR is a bit more rigid.

    Suspension wise there is no big difference! You still have the*Showa balance free forks*up front and a monoshock at the rear. The only change is that the front is now a bit soft and the rear is stiffened up.

    And the best part is that all these mods come at a price of 2 lakhs more than the standard Zx10-R. Giving the RR a price tag of around*21.9 lakhs ex-Showroom Delhi.

    Well if you ask me it's still the best value for money liter class bike available in India!

    These were the first impressions of the Zx10-RR.
