The Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R is one of the finest litre-class motorcycles you can get your hands on and previous only added more electronics and power to the brilliant motorcycle. Now, adding aesthetic updates for model year 2017, Kawasaki has introduced a new colour and graphics option on the ZX-10R - 'Pearl Blizzard White/Metallic Flat Raw Titanium'. While the all-white ZX-10R is quite the spectacle and dramatically different from the otherwise green livery, the colour is specific for international markets at present and hasn't been announced for India yet.
The new livery on the 2017 Kawasaki ZX-10R gets white painted panels across the bike, while the lower section of the fairing gets finished in a metallic grey shade. You also get revised graphics with a tinge of green, while the trademark green can be seen more effectively on the Showa Balance Free Forks (BFF) up front. Apart from the new colour scheme, Kawasaki will continue to offer the existing Lime Green/Ebony KRT Replica (green and black) livery on the litre-class offering.
Powered by a 998cc in-line four-cylinder, DOHC, 16-valve, liquid-cooled, petrol engine, the Kawasaki ZX-10R was updated for MY2016. In its current setup, the motor is tuned to produce 197bhp of power, which can be hiked to 204hp with Ram-Air, while torque output stands at 113Nm. The motor comes paired to a 6-speed gearbox.
With inputs coming from Kawasaki's WSBK team, the updated ZX-10R is a track focused tool and comes with a host of rider assist systems including Kawasaki Launch Control (KLCS), Kawasaki Intelligent Braking (KIBS), Kawasaki Sport Traction Control (S-KTRC), Kawasaki Engine Braking Control (KEBC), Quick Shifter (KQS) and much more. Braking performance comes from the Kawasaki Intelligent Braking System (KIBS) controlled Brembo discs at the front and rear.
The new colour is expected to first go on sale in Malaysia next year, before making it to other markets. It is likely that Kawasaki will introduce the new colour scheme in India next year, or the shade will be available as part of the options list, given the fact that the model comes as a CBU. While the arrival of the 2017 line-up is still sometime away, the company is currently dealing with a rogue dealership and frustrated customers after its Navi Mumbai outlet did not deliver bikes or refund its customers any money.
