OUWA – Kawasaki ZX-10R & ZX-10RR 2021. The sportbike duo Kawasaki ZX-10R 2021 and Kawasaki ZX-10RR 2021 have just officially launched the biker globally with comprehensive upgrades from design to engine and technology to accompany the vehicle. This article will give you the most detailed information available about this sportbike duo. First, invite you to watch this video!

Sports appearance, personality, inherited from H2
Looking at the Kawasaki ZX-10R & ZX-10RR 2021, we will no longer recognize the “Green Frog” one day, instead of a scarab, cobra, or something with a cellar. pit, fierce, not “gentle” like green frogs anymore. The sporty, personality style of the ZX-10R and ZX-10RR 2021 inherits the lines from the hyperbike Ninja H2 brother, especially when you look at the front of the car with sharp headlights and in the middle.

Although everyone’s aesthetic is different, it’s hard to deny that the ZX-10R and ZX-10RR are much prettier than their predecessors. There are quite a lot of biker brothers confided to themselves that they decided not to buy the previous generation ZX-10R just because its appearance looked too gentle, not the right “quality” that they wanted, despite the price and its operability is too good. Now, perhaps they will be satisfied as soon as they see this design. (Read also Ducati Panigale V4 SP)
Significant design upgrades and changes to the Kawasaki ZX-10R & ZX-10RR 2021 are all aimed at enhancing aerodynamics and providing optimum performance at high speeds, Specifically include:
- Yamaha Tracer 9 GT 2021: new design, improved CP3 engine, many technologies from YZF-R1M
- BMW S1000R 2021
- BMW G310R 2021 Slightly Changed Design, Improved Engine
- Ducati SuperSport 950
- Honda CB125R 2021 New Engine Price from 2,960 USD
The new logo is similar to the Ninja H2 series, which is reserved only for the most premium Kawasaki cars
Brand new pair of LED headlights, 500g lighter than previous Halogen lights
Ram Air air inlet has a more compact design, but the performance remains constant
The fork and handlebars have a more straight design and are pulled forward by 10mm
The footrest is set up 5mm higher, helping to push the driver’s body forward more, the rear part of the saddle raised, helping to push the rider’s hips and butt higher when seated, all for the purpose of achieving get maximum aerodynamic efficiency
The windshield is longer than 40mm with a higher angle, the windscreen is more effective when it comes to “hug the fuel tank”
The car side openings are specially designed to help dissipate engine heat away from the driver’s knees more efficiently, while the side bumper is shaped to help direct air to the oil cooling system. engine (separate from engine cooling system)
Powerful engine, lots of technology from the track
Referring to the ZX-10R and ZX-10RR, the engine is what gives the most interesting things. Indeed, it is no coincidence that in the last six years, Kawasaki and their driver Jonathan Rea have won the championship for six consecutive years, from 2015 to 2020, with the ZX-10R and ZX-10RR. The 998cc engine from the Kawasaki ZX-10R and ZX-10RR 2021 is no exception, it is built for racing, and is really efficient at racing, though not as impressive as many of the competitors.
The most prominent details of the 988cc, inline 4-cylinder engine on the Kawasaki ZX-10R and ZX-10RR 2021 include:
The “Finger-follower” valve control system helps reduce weight by 20%, ensuring stable operation at high to extremely high rpm (redline).<
Camshafts, cam bearings, intake/exhaust valves, springs, and related parts are made from top-grade materials such as Titanium, Chrome-Molybden alloy, DLC coating, etc. for maximum weight reduction and ensure the ability to operate at the highest intensity
The lightweight crankshaft and the piston are Teflon coated
Advanced air engine oil cooling system, separate from liquid engine cooling system, inherited from the experience of the KRT racing team, ensures optimal performance for the vehicle. vehicles in every range
47mm electronic throttle control system combined with 32-bit ECU for fast and precise throttle response
The lightweight titanium alloy exhaust system, good heat dissipation, helps the car operate efficiently and still meets the strict Euro 5 standards.
The 6-speed gearbox features KQS fast-shifting technology and has been revised down to the gear ratio for optimal acceleration and cornering in the low to mid-range.
Ability to handle & operate flexibly
The Kawasaki ZX-10R and ZX-10RR 2021 inherit the cutting edge Kawasaki technologies and experiences accumulated on the SBK track, the aerodynamics, the ergonomics, the frame, the suspension, the brakes are all researched. Thorough research and calculation to come up with the best solution, aiming to help the car run as fast as possible on the track, specifically as follows:
Redesigned chassis, new frame structure with 10mm longer wheelbase, moving the center of gravity forward more, improving the driver’s handling and steering. Chassis and swingarm changes lower the rear axle and lengthen the wheelbase, provide overall stability to the car and improve suspension maneuverability after exiting corners crab.
State-of-the-art suspension with 43mm Showa BFF front forks and lightweight Showa BFRC mono-shock, both with advanced suspension technology from the SBK racetrack for comfortable and sporty handling a commercial vehicle
Front Brembo®️️️️ brakes include a pair of 330mm discs and Brembo M-50’s most advanced 4-piston Brembo brake calipers, providing excellent braking force and feel. In addition, the brake system of the ZX-10R 2021 is also further improved with upgraded rear brake pads and a more optimized rear brake fluid tank.
The aerodynamics and ergonomics of the Kawasaki ZX-10R and ZX-10RR 2021 have also been maximized, with wind resistance reduced by 7% and road pressure increased by 17% thanks to changes and upgrades. very logical and intelligent such as: the back of the seat is raised, the windshield is 40mm longer with a higher set angle, the handlebar is wider, the footrest is set up 5mm higher, the integrated spoiler is hidden inside the shirt. like the exterior, new LED headlights, front, side & rear cladding design, new Ram Air air intakes, etc.
Advanced and advanced technology
A range of state-of-the-art technology and equipment has been incorporated into the Kawasaki ZX-10R and ZX-10RR 2021, for example:
- Features accelerating when starting KLCM
- KEBC engine brake control system combined with Cruise Control
- The KQS 2-way fast gearshift system
- Features customize engine power with 3 modes: Full, Middle, Low
- Application to connect bike to a smartphone
- TFT panel with 2 display modes Black & White mode
- The 6-axis IMU system – the “brain” of the car
- S-KTC sport traction control system
- KIBS intelligent anti-lock braking system
- KCMF intelligent cornering control system
- Ohlins electronic power steering system
What are the differences between the ZX-10RR 2021 and the ZX-10R 2021
The Kawasaki ZX-10RR is a more “track-focus” version than the ZX-10R, which means the ZX-10RR will be for those who run a lot of tracks, run at higher speeds because it has a dark capacity. 1 hp higher maximum and max torque slightly longer (~ 400rpm) than ZX-10R. Please note that the Zx-10RR is not “stronger” than the ZX-10R, because at a specific rpm, there are times when the ZX-10R has higher power and torque than the ZX-10RR, especially Especially in the low and medium rpm range, you who see the chart will understand what you say.
The ZX-10RR 2021 different details include:
- The shorter, lighter, piston is made by Pankl
- The rod is made of titanium, also produced by Pankl
- The camshafts are fine-tuned for better extreme high rpm operation
- Marchesini lightweight alloy wheels
- The suspension is reprogrammed, more suitable for the racetrack
- KRT’s signature green color with a little lemon yellow
The Kawasaki ZX-10R starts at $ 16,399 for the standard version with a matte black finish and $ 17,399 for the KRT Edition. Meanwhile, the Kawasaki ZX-10RR 2021 is priced at $ 28,999, much higher.
