In 2018, Kawasaki released the Ninja ZX-10R ABS KRT Edition, a motorcycle developed with feedback from the World Superbike Championship-winning Kawasaki Racing Team and came with a safety feature such as the Anti-lock Braking System (ABS).
The mode featured cutting-edge electronics such as the Inertia Measurement Unit (IMU), Sport-Kawasaki Traction Control (S-KTRC), Kawasaki Launch Control Mode (KLCM), Kawasaki Engine Brake Control (KEBC), Power Mode, and Electronic Steering Damper (ESD).
The Electronic Steering Damper (ESD) was jointly developed with Ohlins, and damping characteristics were electronically changed depending on the bike's speed, acceleration, and deceleration, while also allowing the rider to relax more and reducing fatigue.
The Sport-Kawasaki Traction Control (S-KTRC), with precise management from the IMU unit, allowed riders to choose between five modes for various track conditions and personal preference riding style while also offering an OFF function that completely turned off the system.
As for power, the 2018 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R ABS KRT Edition was powered by a 998cc four-stroke four-cylinder liquid-cooled engine that delivered an output power of 200 hp with a peak at 13,000 rpm and 114 Nm (84 lb-ft) of torque available at 11,500 rpm.
For braking performance, the bike featured a Kawasaki Intelligent Braking System (KIBS) with two 330 mm Brembo semi-floating discs coupled to four-piston calipers on the front and a 220 mm disc with a single-piston caliper on the rear.
