Kawasaki has revealed a special edition variant of the ZX-10R which is track-focussed and will now be available for sale as well. The ZX-10R SE will be getting a semi-active Showa suspension, which was taken from the Kawasaki's World Superbike Championship race bike. The suspension has in-built stroke sensors which can measure the movement of the shock absorbers and changing the damping setting as you ride in real-time, within milliseconds. In addition, the bike also gets forged aluminium Marchesini wheels with seven spokes which are already offered on the ZX-10RR.

Coming to the electronics, the ZX-10R SE gets the same package as the regular ZX-10R which includes Kawasaki Launch Control Mode, Kawasaki Intelligent Anti-lock Braking System, Kawasaki Sport Traction Control, Kawasaki Engine Braking Control and the Kawasaki Corner Management Function. Kawasaki will also be offering a few accessories such as the frame slider set, knee-pad set and an adjustable Engine Control Unit (ECU) as well.

As far as the engine is concerned, the bike doesn't get any mechanical updates and still uses the 998 cc in-line four engine which makes 204 bhp (ram air power figures) at 13,000 rpm and makes 113.5 Nm of peak torque at 11,500 rpm. Kawasaki is now offering a bi-directional quick-shifter, which again has been lifted straight off the ZX-10RR. There is a new colour scheme of dark grey and green as well. The bike will hit the roads in early 2018 globally. There is no confirmation whether Kawasaki will offer the ZX-10R SE in India or not.
