The 2016 INTERMOT is currently underway and one of the many variants revealed by Kawasaki includes the Homologation special Ninja ZX-10RR. So what does the extra R bring to the table? For starters, this limited run model will only be available in Winter Edition black paintjob. The stock wheels from the standard ZX-10R get replaced by lightweight 7-spoke Marchesini rims. Now while the Marchesini wheels come wrapped in the same 120/70 R17 and 190/55 R17 rubber from the standard model, they are claimed to offer faster acceleration, braking, and direction changes.
The limited edition will be available as a single-seat option only. The RR tag, apart from the faring, is also engraved on the engine covers and the key.
The changes on this machine are not limited to visuals. The new model with the RR moniker features a modified cylinder head which can be installed with higher lift racing camshafts and new reinforced crankcases. While the higher lift racing camshafts and new reinforced crankcases do not come as standard, they can be ordered along with Race Kits. The tappets on the ZX-10RR get DLC coating which are aimed at reducing friction.
Apart from that, the ZX-10RR gets bi-directional Kawasaki Quick Shifter (KQS) which offers smooth up and down shifts. The ZX-10RR’s features six-axis inertial measurement unit (IMU) along with a long list of rider aids such as sports traction control, electronic engine brake control, launch control, intelligent anti-lock brakes and Kawasaki’s KCMF cornering management function.
