About Ninja ZX-10R [2020-2021]

Kawasaki India has updated its product portfolio with the launch of the 2021 Ninja ZX-10R at an aggressive price tag. The litre-class supersport model rivals the likes of Ducati Panigale V4, BMW S1000RR, Suzuki GSX-R1000R and the Yamaha YZF-R1. The 2021 model features a styling revision along with mechanical upgrades and an improved electronics package for 2021.

Mechanically, the 2021 uses a BS6-compliant 998cc, in-line four-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine that makes 200bhp (210bhp with RAM Air) of maximum power at 13,200rpm and 114Nm of peak torque at 11,400rpm. The motor is linked to a six-speed transmission. Kawasaki says that the Ninja ZX-10R’s gear ratios were idealised for circuit riding. Other changes to the motor include a finger follower valve actuation system and a new air-cooled oil cooler based on feedback from Kawasaki’s World SBK race motorcycle.

The 2021 Ninja ZX-10R also gets a revised design that is sharper than its predecessor. The styling includes a twin-pod headlight, aerodynamic winglets built into the upper cowl for added downforce, a new tail cowl, an updated handlebar and footpeg positions, and the Kawasaki River Mark. The updated ergonomics are claimed to deliver a more aggressive, circuit-focussed riding position. The 2021 Ninja ZX-10R will be offered in two colours – Lime Green and Flat Ebony Type 2. The Ninja ZX-10R BS6 tips the weighing scale at 207kg (kerb).

The updated features include full-LED lighting, a Bluetooth-enabled 4.3-inch TFT colour instrumentation with Kawasaki’s RIDEOLOGY THE APP. The electronic rider aids include electronic cruise control, traction control system, launch control, cornering management function, power modes, riding modes, engine brake control, intelligent ABS, Öhlins electronic steering damper, and a bidirectional quick-shifter.

The hardware on the 2021 model comprises an aluminium twin-spar frame, aluminium swingarm, Showa BFF (Balance Free Front Fork), and a horizontal back-link rear suspension with Showa BFRC (Balance Free Rear Cushion) lite. The braking tasks are handled by dual, semi-floating 330mm discs with dual radial-mount, Brembo M50 monobloc, opposed 4-piston callipers at the front, and a 220mm single rotor with a single-bore pin-slide calliper at the back.

Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R [2020-2021] Expert Opinion

  • Good Things

    • One of the most affordable superbikes in the country
    • 1000cc engine churns out excellent performance
    • Equipped with top-spec electronics
  • Could be Better

    • Riding position is aggressive for city use
    • Expensive to maintain

BikeWale's Take

The Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R is currently one of the most affordable litre-class supersport motorcycles in the market. It offers a potent and refined engine along with good braking hardware. Nevertheless, being track-focused, the ZX-10R isn't a very city-friendly motorcycle and is also high on maintenance.

  •  5Serious track bike... 3 months ago by Anthony D

    The 10R is built for track, no doubt about it. Massive acceleration yet smooth. Redlines without even thinking. I touched 119 kmph in 1st gear ! Excellent braking. Knee downs so easily. The quick shifter is a bit lagging but I am told it is a deliberate design to avoid
