King of the Track!  
   
The 2012 Ninja ZX-10R ABS. Built with the same cutting-edge sport bike technology that Kawasaki is reputed for, much of it right off the race circuit, the ZX-10R ABS has an important advantage: anti-lock braking.

Kawasaki calls its anti-lock system KIBS – or Kawasaki Intelligent anti-lock Brake System. The use of “intelligent” aptly describe just how smart the new KIBS is. KIBS is the smallest and lightest ABS unit ever built for a motorcycle, a system Bosch designed specifically with sport bikes in mind. It’s nearly 50 percent smaller and 800 grams lighter than current motorcycle ABS units, adding only about 7 pounds of weight compared to the non-ABS machine.

KIBS is a multi-sensing system that collects and monitors a wide range of information fed from wheel sensors and the bike’s ECU, including wheel speed, caliper pressure, engine rpm, throttle position, clutch actuation and gear position. The KIBS’s ECU communicates with the bike’s engine ECU and tells the Bosch ABS unit to temporarily reduce line pressure, allowing the wheel to once again regain traction when its detects a potential wheel lock-up situation.

In addition, KIBS’s offers a number of additional sport-riding benefits, including rear-end lift suppression during hard braking, minimal kickback during ABS intervention, and increased rear brake control during downshifts. The high-precision pressure control enables the system to avoid reduced brake performance, maintain proper lever feel and help ensure the ABS pulses are minimized.

The Ninja ZX-10R ABS also boasts a highly advanced and customizable electronic system that allows riders of all skill levels to control and experience the ZX-10R ABS’s amazing blend of power and razor-sharp handling. The system is called Sport-Kawasaki Traction Control.

The S-KTRC system offers three different modes of operation, which riders can select according to surface conditions, rider preference and skill level:Level 1 for max-grip track use, Level 2 for intermediate use, and Level 3 for slippery conditions. An LCD graph in the newly designed instrument cluster displays how much electronic intervention is occurring in real time and a thumb switch on the left handlebar pod allows simple, on-the-go mode changes.

The highly potent ZX-10R engine is a 16-valve, DOHC, liquid-cooled inline-four displacing 998cc via 76 x 55mm bore and stroke dimensions. This powerplant is tuned to optimize power delivery, center of gravity and actual engine placement within the chassis. Torque peaks at an rpm range that helps eliminate power peaks and lows that make it difficult for racers and track-day riders to open the throttle with confidence.

Chassis geometry offers excellent stability and handling quickness. The front end geometry – with rake at 25 degrees and trail at 107mm (4.21 in.) – allows light, quick handling and complements the engine’s controllable power and the frame and swingarm’s flex characteristics.

Highly advanced suspension at both ends helps put the beast in control. Up front is a 43mm open-class version of the Big Piston Fork (BPF). Featuring a piston design nearly twice the size of a conventional cartridge fork, the BPF offers smooth action, less stiction, light weight and enhanced damping performance on the compression and rebound circuits. This compliance results in more control and feedback for the rider.

The ZX-10R’s ergonomics are designed for optimum comfort and control. A 32-inch saddle, adjustable footpegs and clip-ons mean that this is a hard-core sport bike you can actually take on an extended sport ride – and still be reasonably comfortable doing so.

Ninja ZX-10R models have always pursued the highest circuit performance. The 2012 model is no exception. The Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R ABS takes the production Supersport machine to a whole new level. Bred for the track, it combines all of the qualities to provide the highest circuit performance with sophisticated technologies like supersport-grade ABS, race-type traction control and three position power mode to allow a greater number of riders to experience the thrill of riding a superbike at or near the limit at the track .
