For next year Kawasaki has announced the new 2012 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R which will be a combination between sports and technology. For this bike manufacturers wanted to build a bike that will be very powerful but at the same time keep the essential elements the Kawasaki brand is known for.
The model 2012 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R offers the rider two things that he is always looking for at a bike: great power and stability while driving. The name of the system which is able to bring the two is Sport Kawasaki Traction Control also known as S-KTRC. Because of this system the bike sits above all the other sports bikes in its class.
Motorcycles have had problems with traction for a very long time, weather it is on dirt, street or track. What makes the S-KTRC system work are all the sensors and parameters: wheel speed and slip, the engine rpm, the throttle position and the acceleration. This system is nothing the bike has ever used since the beginning of the brand, its ultimate goal is to create maximum traction, something no one has ever seen before.
The engine of the bike is very powerful, it has 16 valve, liquid cooled inline, 998cc which is achieved through 76 x 55mm dimensions of the bore and strokes. Just like street race cars, this Kawasaki motorcycle is endowed with much more than the average bike, and there are features which would impress even the most experienced connoisseur. When you like speed and adrenaline, it doesn’t matter whether you’re riding a bike or street race cars, it’s all about journey, the pleasure of moving as fast as you can, like the engine was a part of you all along. This is how you’ll feel on the Kawasaki, and the feeling will become addictive.
