India Kawasaki has launched the new Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R and new Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10RR motorcycles in the country. The Superbikes are locally assembled at the company’s plant in Chakan, Pune.

The new Ninja ZX-10R and new Ninja ZX-10RR are well-known supersport models mainly because of former’s three times successive victories at the World Superbike Championship. Equipped with championship-proven technology both the models are fully capable of dominating the streets.
“The local assembly of the new Ninja ZX-10R & new Ninja ZX-10RR is a very important landmark for India Kawasaki’s Pune Plant. Lots of groundwork has been done before finalizing local assembly of these models,” said Mr Yutaka Yamashita, Managing Director of India Kawasaki Motors.
“The new Ninja ZX-10R & new Ninja ZX-10RR have a unique engineering heritage with a very advance technology. Our newly established R&D played a vital role in making local assembly of the new Ninja ZX-10R and new Ninja ZX-10RR successful,” further added Mr Yamashita.
The new Ninja ZX-10R and new Ninja ZX-10RR, produced with unique Japanese engineering and technologies have features like Kawasaki Quick Shifter, Kawasaki Launch Control Mode, Kawasaki Engine Brake Control, ABS etc.
Both the models will be produced limited in numbers, however, the total units of the new Ninja ZX-10RR will be lesser than the total units of the new Ninja ZX-10R, as the Ninja ZX-10RR’s global production is limited. The bookings for Model Year 2018 are now open and will be closed after the allocated production and bookings are completed.
The Superbikes are powered by a 998cc, in-line four-cylinder petrol engine which churns out 200 hp @ 13,000rpm and 113.5 Nm of torque @ 11,500rpm. This motor is coupled to a six-speed gearbox and comes with a quickshifter as a standard fitment.
“A decision of local assembly of these two high performing motorcycles, which are also sold in Europe, USA Japan etc., was taken more from future perspective than only from a price perspective. India Kawasaki has a vision for the Indian market and steps like these will pave the path to achieve its goals. Besides, it will also help to increase craze and enthusiasm for these two legendary performers in this country,” commented Mr Yutaka.
