2011 Ninja ZX-10R Review And SPECIFICATIONS


Filed Under (Kawasaki) by admin on 13-12-2010

1. Big Piston Fork (BPF) and Öhlins Steering Damper Throwing out the anchors at track speed demands a fork that remains composed under pressure. The fully adjustable new Big Piston Fork (BPF) does just that by significantly reducing damping pressure while maintaining consistent damping force. The standard Öhlins Steering Damper is likewise adjustable to help you dial in the steering damping level you need. 2. Horizontal Back-Link Rear Suspension New rear suspension positions the shock and its linkage above the swingarm, leaving room beneath the bike for a larger exhaust pre-chamber. The move helps centralize mass for better transitional cornering response, while also improving overall suspension action and road holding. The piggyback-reservoir shock is fully adjustable, including both low- and high-speed compression-damping circuits. 3. Adjustable Footpegs Adapting the ZX-10R for a day at the track or a long street ride is easy, thanks to its new adjustable footpegs. Raise the footpegs to improve your cornering clearance on the track, or lower them for a more relaxed riding position on the street or highway. The total range of adjustment is 15mm. 1. 2. 3.
