Kawasaki also said that the bikes will be manufactured in limited numbers in the first lot and the pre-bookings will be closed after attaining the targeted numbers. The 2019 Ninja ZX-10R's new motor uses Finger follower valve actuation that helps the motor to rev faster and sustain higher revs. Powering the motorcycle is an inline-four, 998 cc motor that now churns 203 bhp of peak power and 114.9 Nm of peak torque. The same motor can also churn out a massive 213 bhp with Kawasaki's RAM air assist.
Other updates include a bi-directional quick-shifter and a new colour scheme - Lime Green-Ebony-Metallic Graphite Grey. The litre-class supersport is packed with a number of features like - 3 riding modes, traction control, launch control mode, electronic throttle valves, ABS, Engine brake control and cornering management function. The revised motor sits in an aluminium twin-spar frame and the Ninja ZX-10R also gets an aluminium swingarm.
The new Ninja ZX-10R will be assembled in India and the Japanese motorcycle manufacturer will price it competitively. The 2018 edition of Ninja ZX-10R was sold at Rs 14.3 lakh which made it the most affordable litre-class supersport in the Indian market. There is no official word on the pricing of the 2019 Ninja ZX-10R but we expect that its price will still be lesser than its competition. For the update, Kawasaki recently increased the prices of its motorcycles in India due to fluctuating foreign exchange rates. The key rivals of the 2019 Ninja ZX-10R are Honda CBR1000RRand BMW S1000R.
