2011 Kawasaki Ninja Review

Building an open-class in the present era is a paradoxical challenge. On the one the factory must design the bike it can create, able to with the best on the racetracks of the It must feature brilliant and brakes.

Stylish new color flatters Kawasaki’s traditional green.

On the other hand, it meet a raft of international governing exhaust emissions and And the machine must be pleasant to in the mainly congested environments in these things are sold. It an almost impossible task, seemingly insurmountable contradictions.

Kawasaki’s own Herzog at speed.

In any event, the produces a specific power of 100 hp/liter, yet will be ridden in where taking the bike to its in first gear will you in the slammer. The only place it can strut its stuff is on the track, yet the must meet all the needs of a rider.

And the most amazing thing of This new Kawasaki is one of the most refined and friendly bikes to around on public roads. The shafts fitted to quell vibrations in the inline four have something to do with it, but so the seamless fuel injection and the electronic throttle control.

The almost feels tame at engine speeds, able to around suburbia with more than 4,000 rpm on the bright LED-backlit bar tachometer. that with the feral of the beast when it is allowed to up nearer the 14,300 rpm redline, and swear it was a different bike.

If you see the reading double digits, on tight.

As usual, almost everything in the has been changed. Fuel is handled by dual injectors, the second-stage injectors adding at high rpm. The valves are the cams are chromoly steel of cast-iron, and the pistons are lighter.

The ratio is now fully 13:1.

ZX-10Rs have been fast in previous iterations, and has changed. There is really no way you can the potential of this extraordinary without taking it to the track. In you run out of room by the time you shift second gear.

If you can’t do you don’t need this

Unfortunately, we were not invited to the introduction, so were denied luxury. But this Ninja is as a street bike, and will be as such by the majority of its owners, and so where we rode it. And on the road one has need for the big Kawi’s coolest

Which are S-KTRC, Kawasaki’s derived traction control and the variable Power Mode

Unlike most traction-control S-KTRC is designed to maximize on the track, not merely control in the interests of safety. So it monitors a of sensors to tailor power at an optimal level for track Riders at the international track were seen blasting off with the same amount of and front wheel levitation, lap lap.

The system has three selectable at the left-hand switchcube. 1 is for track use, and it allows wheelspin. Level 2 is an intermediate good for the street, and level 3 is for conditions.

There’s also a Mode system that the selection of any one of three power low, medium, or full.

The low restricts engine output. has the same slow response as the low until you wind the grip then it provides the same horsepower as the high setting. of these things mean much on the street.

Medium power and level 2 works just fine, and allows you to go faster than believe possible if you’d ridden a literbike.

This adjusts the power map and traction even on the fly.

There is no assistance at the clutch lever, yet it is easy to pull, and offers a span of engagement. Most of the and torque has been pushed way up the rev but the bike still moves off on a whiff of throttle and low engine And it shifts positively, with not effort required at the lever.

The exercise is made easier by the suspension. On the front is a Showa Big Fork, which manages to excellent pitch control reasonable small-bump compliance. bigger bumps met at speed produce wrist-compressing impacts, and the shock—now laid horizontally to space for a large exhaust below the engine—combines similar for a tolerable ride.

The frame is a seven-piece cast-aluminum

Careful attention to chassis and mass centralization has resulted in a responsive machine. The ZX-10R in whatever direction you think like to go as it reads subtle in bar pressure and weight distribution. It in eagerly and feels steady at lean angles.

The big 190 rear feels like it has claws dug the street surface, and we’ve ridden a bike that such a reassuring sense.

And what you’d hope for at the street speeds we used we had the bike. Reaching for the limits require a talented rider on a and normal street riding is towing a parachute behind an The bike always has more of available, and you spend a lot of time for an open space to give the free rein.
