Kawasaki Ninja 1000 ZX-10RR 2019

Menus

To afford hypersport is to venture on a path that can very quickly slip into competition. Perfect, the ZX-10 asks just that, especially in this RR version. She is also the one who takes the best advantage of the 2019 developments. With an idea behind her head to stay on top in WSBK.

So what did they tamper with in the engine at Kawasaki ?

Diet, gentlemen pilots, more diet for the ‘Dizer’. By adopting a pawl valve distribution, the engine can afford more compact combustion chambers and even higher rotation speeds. The power now reaches 204 horsepower for the ZX-10 RR, 500 trs higher.
You want the best, the most, something to send the clock? You just have to ask. Let’s stay in the guts of the engine. There are new Pankl Titanium connecting rods allowing a saving of 408 grams. The inertia of the crankshaft is reduced by 5% while we discover a gain of 600 rpm at high speed. The limiter now strikes at 14,800 rpm instead of 14,200 rpm.
This is where the trick is. The Superbike regulations provide for penalizing the winning teams – in order to level the performance – by reducing their maximum engine speed. With more original laps, the Kawa engine will hardly feel the effects of this restraint when the officials limit its flights..
It will bubble with power and madness in this 4 cylinder. No wonder its cylinder head cover is now painted red.

The ZX-10 RR takes the opportunity to abandon its ‘Winter’ colorway. Instead, a more provocative green ‘Lime Green ‘inevitably reminds us of the machine engaged in EWC. For war paints, this remains the privilege of the KRT Edition.
Produced in limited series, this ZX-10 ‘Race Ready’ will be produced only 500 copies, each authenticated by a plate on the triple tree. As with the previous editions, the small chassis improvements are still there:

Kawasaki Ninja 1000 ZX-10RR 2019 When it was presented, Kawa announced that with this ZX-10RR, the house drivers gained 1 to 2 seconds per lap on the Autopolis circuit (which belongs to the brand). How? ‘Or’ What ? By optimizing everything on board. Symbolically, we transferred the equipment for the passenger in order to make it a strict single-seater. Without the rear footrests and by opting for a lightweight silencer support, the Ninja gains a kilo. Then it’s about gaining velocity. The chassis is put forward: just at the level of the wheels, there is already enough to push the lap times. Kawa and Marchesini have developed new forged aluminum rims, reducing unsprung mass and allowing faster angle changes. These rims are fitted with Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa SP tires; and you know how a good tire fitment and plenty of grip change the game for you.
In case a buddy wants to try the ZX-10RR wheels on his standard ZX-10R, no worries, the wheels are compatible. You will just have to buy a kit to mount the brake discs and the speed sensor track.

With shoes that are much more efficient, it is essential to review the suspension settings. The factory has therefore put in the little screwdrivers that go well without changing the components of the Showa BFF inverted fork or the rear shock absorber. Kawa thus wants to highlight the quality of the suspicions.
Another element that saves time is the Up & Down shifter. A privilege until 2018, but it was generalized on the X-10 R. It remains nonetheless an asset on the track; that we can also use on the road, as long as we are above 2500 rpm.

But let me come to the main course. With the changes mentioned above, this ZX-10R “+” is already playing a bit ahead. Where it becomes more interesting for competitors, this is what kawasaki had already modified the guts from the first version of this RR. Born from racing, this version begs to return. To fight fiercely, the engine manufacturers have reworked the cylinder head so that it can accommodate wicked camshafts. Also, the pushrods receive an ultra-hard Diamond-Like Carbon (DLC) surface treatment to facilitate engine break-in and reduce mechanical losses. Still in the spirit of race preparation, the crankcase has been reinforced to handle the load intended to boost it. The vents between the cylinders have been narrowed and the wall thickened in this area.

An exclusivity for enthusiasts? Especially a version intended to be grafted a nice racing preparation, history of better defeating a competition which gives itself the means to return to the forefront. Miss Ninja doesn’t seem too worried in this RR livery.

Don’t forget to take a look at the specific racing parts kit. It features high profile camshafts and special valve springs to improve high rpm perfs.
