    CHAMPIONSHIP DRIVEN

    The Ninja® ZX™-10R SE is the ultimate race-replica sportbike. Inspired by the Kawasaki Racing Team’s (KRT) World Superbike Championship-winning race machine, the Ninja ZX-10R SE adds exclusive Kawasaki Electronic Control Suspension (KECS). A state-of-the-art system, KECS combines ride data with road conditions to adapt to riding conditions with every millisecond that passes. With a push of a button, you can experience comfort on backroads or firmness on track days. The suspension's superb damping character offers a level of ride comfort that almost makes you forget you are riding a machine with race-ready suspension, while outstanding damping responsiveness delivers a planted feel that translates to rider confidence and further advances the ease of riding.

  • CONTROLLED DAMPING

    CONTROLLED DAMPING

    • KECS adds electronically controlled damping to the high-spec Showa Balance Free Front Fork and Showa Balance Free Rear Cushion equipped on the Ninja® ZX™-10R SE
    • Damping is adjusted electronically to suit vehicle speed and suspension stroke speed. Deceleration is also taken into account, allowing pitching under braking to maintain a natural feel, while minimizing chassis reaction to rough road conditions
    All trademarks, registered trademarks, logos, and copyrights are the property of their respective owners
  • CONTROL

    CONTROL

    • Enhanced control comes thanks to a 1 millisecond reaction time that is produced by a solenoid valve with direct (single-stage) actuation
    • Quick reaction time is ideal for supersport applications such as track riding where natural feeling is crucial to experiencing oneness with the bike
    All trademarks, registered trademarks, logos, and copyrights are the property of their respective owners
  • STROKE SENSORS

    STROKE SENSORS

    • Built-in stroke sensors on both the front fork and rear shock provide real-time stroke speed and compression information every millisecond
    • Stroke speed and compression information is complemented by acceleration and deceleration information from the IMU, and vehicle speed from the FI ECU, every 10 milliseconds
    All trademarks, registered trademarks, logos, and copyrights are the property of their respective owners
  • DAMPING MODES

    DAMPING MODES

    • Riders can choose from 3 modes: Road, Track, and Manual
    • Road mode delivers softer base settings to handle various street conditions
    • Track mode provides firmer base settings for enhanced front-end feel and cornering
    • Manual mode allows riders to tailor the rebound and compression damping base settings to suit preference and/or riding style
    • In all 3 modes, KECS adjusts damping for vehicle speed, stroke speed and deceleration
