The Ninja ZX-10R is a Kawasaki litre-class offering that sits below the flagship Ninja ZX-10RR. For the 2020 model, the company has dropped the pricing of the motorcycle by Rs 31,000, making it more accessible to buyers.

Although it is still powered by the same 999cc inline-four motor, it receives a slight bump in power. The motor is now capable of producing 200.2bhp and 210bhp with RAM air intake. It also gets finger-follower valve actuation for a lighter and more reliable setup and a red painted cylinder head cover. Meanwhile, the six-speed gearbox is assisted by a Kawasaki Quick Shifter-Dual Direction quick-shifter.

The motorcycle is suspended by fully-adjustable 43mm Showa inverted forks up front and an adjustable back-link gas-charged monoshock at the rear. Braking is done by 330mm dual semi-floating discs Brembo M50 monobloc calipers for the front and a 220mm single disc with a single-piston caliper at the rear.

In terms of competition, the Ninja ZX-10R locks horns with the Ducati Panigale V4, Suzuki GSX-R1000, Yamaha YZF R1, BMW S1000RR and the Aprilia RSV4 RR in India.

BikeWale's Take

The Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R is currently the most affordable litre-class supersport motorcycle 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.
