2016 Intermot Motorcycle Show: Kawasaki Reveals Limited Edition ZX-10RR

Written By:

The 2016 Intermot Motorcycle Show is on-going and Kawasaki has utilised this opportunity to reveal a very special motorcycle — the ZX-10RR.

The new Kawasaki ZX-10RR has been inspired by WSBK and production numbers will be limited to 500 units. The motorcycle packs a lot of technology carried forward from racing.

To begin with, the motorcycle is powered by an in-line four-cylinder engine that makes 200bhp. Also, keeping in mind the weight reduction the motorcycle has had, performance is surely available in abundance.

The engine receives a lot of modifications, which include modified cylinder heads that can accommodate high-lift cams (optional), DLC coated tappets, and a reinforced crankcase to cope up with track days.

The Kawasaki ZX-10RR will be available as a single seater only, a clever weight reduction technique. Also, the motorcycle gets lighter alloy wheels, which help in better braking, acceleration, and handling.

To handle all the power and offer good handling, the ZX-10RR comes fitted with 120 section front and 190 section 17-inch Pirelli Supercorsa SP tyres as standard.

Also, making its debut along with the ZX-10RR is the bidirectional Kawasaki Quick Shifter that allows seamless up and down shifts.

This is linked to the motorcycle's traction control, electronic engine brake control, launch control, Intelligent anti-lock brakes, and KCMF cornering management system through the IMU.

As mentioned earlier, the Kawasaki ZX-10RR is a limited edition model and will be available in a single paint shade — Flat Ebony.
