Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R goes semi-active for 2018

KAWASAKI has given its flagship superbike semi-active suspension for 2018 to make this, the ZX-10R SE.

The 2017 World Superbike winning model is Kawasaki's first to get electronic semi-active suspension, which uses an inertial measurement unit and sensors in the Showa suspension to automatically adjust settings in milliseconds according to conditions.

The Ninja ZX-10R SE also features Marchesini forged alloy wheels, an up/down quick-shifter and a matt black finish with green highlights. 

It was revealed today at the Eicma motorcle show in Milan, along with the Ninja H2 SX.

Kawasaki Motors Europe Director Morihiro Ikoma said: “This marks a significant step for us in terms of suspension technology and we believe this system is truly cutting edge in its design and operation.

“Mating information gained in the competitive arena of WorldSBK with leading edge suspension has created a machine that will certainly appeal to Ninja ZX-10R fans that seek what is newest and most up to date. Adding this machine to our range for 2018 displays our continued confidence in the formidable and iconic Ninja brand.”
