The 2007 Ninja ZX-10R brings a new look to the Kawasaki liter-engines, with a redesigned fairing and an edgy approach to racing fairings.

A revised RAM Air intake duct reduces noise and sports straighter channels for better flow.

The 998 engine has received updated intake throttle ports, bringing the bike closer to the factory superbike race beasts. The die-cast aluminium sub-grame keeps the weight down and the bike's profile on the slim side, for better aerodynamics.

A race-quality steering damper helps the rider get more precise turns and adds to the stability of the bike. The twin-tube design prevents the damping fluid from frothing, even as it warms under racing conditions.

The engine delivers 138 PS in normal conditions but can reach 200 PS with the RAM Air. Adjustable, high-performance fork and rear shock are standard.
