In the hands of Jonathan Ree, the Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10RR has won the championship title in the World Superbike Championship. Now, this machine and the standard ZX-10R are combined into a single machine that is equipped with electronic semi-active suspension for the first time in Kawasaki.
Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R SE
Kawasaki decided to throw out something brand new to the market, something Kawasaki has not practiced so far. The new Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R SE is equipped with Showa suspension in front and rear, this suspension is electronically controlled by the KECS (Kawasaki Electronic Control Suspension). KECS is the latest word of technology transferred from the race track to the serial motorcycle. This suspension system exceptionally responsive to plunge the front end of the motorcycle or rear end load when the motorcycle accelerates.
As for the other components on this motorbike, the Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R SE runs the identical aggregate like the Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R. The power of the aggregate is 200 hp and 147.1 KW at 13000 rpm and the maximum power with a ram-air is 210 hp and 154.4 kw at 13000 rpm. The maximum torque is 113.5 Nm at 11500 rpm. Aggregate in this motorcycle is still very reliable and provides a lot of available power at the low rpm.
In front for braking are in charge a radially disposed Brembo M50 monobloc brake with double discs 330 mm in diameter with a four-piston brake caliper. on rear wheel is a single disc with diameter of 220 millimeters. In front is mounted up side down fork diameter of 43mm, KECS control the compression and decompression of the front fork. On this type of front forks, you can manually adjust the overload of the spring in the fork. In the back there is a horizontally positioned BFRC gas shock absorber. The KECS system controls compression and decompression, it is also possible to adjust the level of load on the rear shock absorber.
From electronic tools you can find almost everything from Kawasaki Traction Control (KTC), Kawasaki Quick Shifter (KQS) which offers the shifting the gears down and up without using a clutch, you can optionally order an ABS system. Another thing that differs on this model from ZX-10R and ZX-10RR are specially designed Marchesini wheels with seven spokes. These specially designed wheels are lighter and offer better maneuverability of a motorcycle, also the wheels are stiffer which improves the total performance.
Kawasaki ZX-10R SE offers something that just few models on the market have, ZX-10R SE is a complete bike with which you catch yourself how easily engage in fast passages through the curves.
