We quality time with the Ninja ZX-10R to find out how qualified green champion all the boxes in our uncertain Indian

Motor Quest: Kawasaki the Ninja ZX-10R in 2004, as a for the ZX-9R. The bike has been over the years but the latest was given earlier this

Styling – The ZX-10R has been the bike for design on almost other Ninja in Kawasaki’s Therefore, the styling is spot on. You call the bike gorgeous or

It looks striking, purposeful, and brutal in this candy colour. Nose down, up design always looks Large twin angular smartly integrated DRLs in the massive fuel tank, faired panels and minimalistic with integrated turn into the tail light marks a statement, which is as a clean design and not busy or like some competitors.

the Ninja ZX-10R looks especially from the rear the exhaust is short and the entire is in the centre, which depicts the of a 600 at first sight rather of a 1000. The mirrors with turn indicators look ears from a distance and they gel immaculately well the design. The three spoke found on most Japanese are not pleasing to the eye.

Colour use is kept to a minimum with colour forks and rest of the panels being green and only. Form and function in a together is seldom achieved.

– Nose down, tail up looks swell. However, you sit on the bike you realise its effect. You sit in the rather than on it.

The clip-ons are even lower than and your back is completely The roomy riding position matters slightly more because of the foot peg position. The pegs are an adjustable unit, so it roomier for comfortable riding or it even more focused for track days. Rider is very comfortable. Hundred of kms go unnoticed when it comes to comfort.

Brilliantly cushioned and that should suit riders. Overall, highly riding position, you will a waist of steel to do long because it will bend than tissue and muscle. Let us not if you are doing city duties for few weeks, your forearms also require strength to the bike at only parking not while moving (more on later.) Mirrors are positioned and are extremely easy to adjust.

seat is surprisingly well and is comfortable for small journeys.

Instrument Cluster and Switch – The all-digital rectangular cluster great. White backlit LEDs for the main screen as as the tachometer is an excellent idea. The shows a host of information as lap timer, reading of litre per 100 kms and consumed), clock, intake air engine temperature, two trip gear position indicator and more.

Fuel warning instead of the fuel bar is here of the European laws, so it directly a warning light when 3-4 are remaining. Switch gear is top with precise clicks. On the side there is the engine switch with start switch and the starter button. side switch has the power selector on the top and traction control on the same button and there is the beam and horn.

Pass function works as lap timer as well.

Performance and Gearbox – the hood sits a 1000cc Oh, wait, sorry. Below the tank sits an in-line liquid-cooled, 4-valve, two injectors per motor producing 200 BHP of unadulterated at 13,000 RPM and 112 Nm of peak torque at RPM which is so sensationally fuelled the entire RPM range that you feel that you are on a practical or a superbike with unruly

Those days are history. and pre-production results through have made life a lot The entire power band is like any other small Ninja we have ridden.

Now we for sure where this comes from.

Thumb the engine and it comes to life a low decibel mechanical clunk. Get and you realise this motor is tractable. All that capacity, and close ratio gearbox you stray around town in gear. When you want to twist the throttle five which has a very short and overtaking is done quicker expected. Get a empty stretch of and give it everything you can while the bike with all your

Acceleration is mind-altering savage. in first gear enables you to 157 km/hr, which is more enough for Indian roads if you an empty stretch of road, keep shifting gears and you see 250 km/hr painlessly.

However only if you can manage to on past 220 km/hr. Why? The is the wind which becomes intrusive and spoils your to reach 299 km/hr, fortunately is the limited top speed of this beast.

The ZX-10R has so much which reminds me of He-Man. 8000 RPM it is Prince Adam the sword in his hand, after RPM it converts into the mighty and shouts ‘I HAVE THE POWER’. that (post 8000 if you mess with the bike, it do what He-Man does his enemies.

Catch you by your spin you several times and you off. We are not joking here. 220 km/hr if you gently move to crouch on the bike, it will all genuine efforts to throw you off no how arrogant you become to push it

Brutal top end thrust is what we all these years about beast and every bit of it is true. Mid is good, but it is not as potent and precise as the mid king, the Honda Fireblade. this bike after gear is an errand, but the sound, it erupts, pleases your senses so well that it you from the task of redlining it.

the Ninja ZX-10R is what you find really hard to on our roads, simply because just an unforgiving machine, a with a mission that not allow you to do so until and unless you it your partner in chase for or become a Ninja yourself. The is so slick and precise that you end up without the clutch most of the This is great when you are spiritedly on a track.

The gearbox is by many goodies which the riding experience get even easy and stressfree such as shifter, which helps you to up while the throttle is 100% Shifts become milli-second which helps you achieve track and better acceleration The gearbox is equipped with a clutch as well, which you from the job of blipping the throttle entering a corner.

If things still go wrong there is Kawasaki’s superior control system called Three modes of intrusion are as per your mood of riding. one is there to detect even the slip and sort it out by sending a of torque. Second allows a wee bit of and corrects it when it reaches Third allows you a bit of slip and a bit of fun, but the beauty is, it will not you either.

Same thing for unprecedented wheelies, in which the will deactivate spark and front wheel will down instantly and according to the level mode. Even ABS in tandem with the K-TRC to locking of a wheel. Turn the control off and just try to have fun and you start having fun, we are you will see grim reaper on the bike beside you to take soul away. Motorcycles this kind of power do not traction control.

Sense of is the best traction control you can find, that too within

The Ninja ZX-10R remains glued to the road at supersonic

Riding Dynamics – One of the core why the Ninja ZX-10R scores marks in every test is Kawasaki is that kind of kid who forgets to do his homework. The dynamics, balance and ease of use is what the motorcycle worthy of every praise. Showa big piston at the front and horizontally linked at the rear with Ohlins damper makes this ludicrously easy to ride in at slow speeds.

The ZX-10R is to manoeuvre and it just makes us we are roaming around the city in a sport bike rather a superbike. Keep flicking the between small gaps it will fit in despite it being an four (as it is not wide as a car or like bikes with even cylinders). It is that easy.

The ECU is connected to the rear monoshock and the ECU adjusts according to speeds. the ZX-10R is light at slow and weighted properly at high Making manoeuvres at high feels immensely stable, are no signs of unbalance post 200 also.

Start taking corners and you the bike tells you what you are doing and if you dedicate yourself it will try to correct you when you spending more time it. Steering geometry is super and turn-in is lightning bolt Loads of feedback from the and frame stiffens up at the slightest and rear tyre evokes you harder and go faster. Exit are fast enough, that on K-TRC system level as

Ride quality is splendid and when you are about to a go over a surface you prepare to brace but in this you just glide any stress. Yet again, kudos to for offering this kind of

The only sore point is and be with every bike of type is the u-turn radius is monumentally huge and you have to be careful, once the weight on either side, it is going to the ground for sure. If you hit the gym daily, you may be to stop it. Brakes are top notch quality stuff taken the top shelf.

Radial mounted callipers holding on to dual at the front which is controlled by a pump master cylinder at the top for superior initial bite and bite after that, at higher speeds and emergencies Kawasaki says works clockwork, no doubt about it. superbikes we see are equipped with two fluid bottles, the ZX-10R comes with one. complaining about no initial from the rear brake is trail braking is required with traction control bikes and let us not forget these are born for the track but end up spending of their time on the road.

The is an adjustable unit but you have to out your spanners because are no huge knobs here new generation motorcycles and it is still the old school procedure, at least at the Front is easily adjustable a hammer type screwdriver. about the front, we witnessed dive when braking at speeds. This is scary and because of less compression on the forks.

New generation litre class are coming up with electronically front suspension too. We to see this in the next generation ZX-10R. One of the major reasons why the drivability in the city is painless is of the heat management system. of the air is directed below the exhaust and to the rear.

You feel the warmth but you get toasted like on other

You can’t help but admire litre class offering Kawasaki

Verdict – So how does the Ninja ZX-10R stack up? Ninja seems immaculately for sure, right from to form and function going in hand. Most important on mind is “kitna deti Well it is around 17 km/l in the and highway mileage can stretch up to km/l, if ridden under 140 They say owning a super is like living the dream.

when turns into doesn’t appear as you thought it but in this case this is how the years we imagined it would be and pretty much says it The Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R is a which will redefine attitude towards superbikes. always makes you crave for and super biking will you crave for even more This is a motorcycle after all and is going to make you crave for speed and biking.

The question is, we gone green? Obviously, all, I wrote this with a green stubble on my
