Kawasaki Motors Corporation has unveiled a new addition to its popular Ninja range: the Ninja ZX-4R. The mid-weight, high-performance machine will feature a redesigned engine and frame, and come in two variants: the Ninja ZX-4R SE and Ninja ZX-4RR. The Ninja ZX-4R will be available in some countries in February 2023 and in Europe in Autumn 2023.
The powerful engine delivers 80 PS in a lightweight, compact chassis for exceptional cornering performance and acceleration. It is the only full-fairing supersport model in the 400cc class with a parallel four-cylinder engine. The new engine, based on Kawasaki’s legendary Ninja ZX series, delivers a maximum output of 77 PS to 80 PS with Ram Air, and has been designed to provide strong low- and mid-range torque and high-rpm power
The machine is equipped with Kawasaki’s Ram Air system and features a high-tensile steel trellis frame and a curved long-type swingarm for excellent handling performance. Showa’s advanced SFF-BP front fork and a horizontal back-link rear suspension system provide superior handling. The braking system delivers powerful braking force with a twin semi-floating front discs and radial-mounted monobloc calipers and a large-diameter rear disc. The F120/R160 tyre combination enhances stability at high speeds.
The Ninja ZX-4R boasts aggressive styling and LED lighting, and is equipped with electronic rider aids, including integrated riding modes, KTRC, and Power Modes. The 4.3-inch full-digital LCD screen displays lap times, gear positions, and RPMs, and can be connected to the Kawasaki RIDEOLOGY app for GPS route information and riding data.
The special edition Ninja ZX-4R SE features exclusive colors and graphics inspired by Kawasaki’s factory racing team, while the Ninja ZX-4RR variant features the same type of Showa BFRC-lite rear shock as the Ninja ZX-10R.
