TOP FEATURES

UPDATED POWER

TAKE THE LEAD
Updated engine features a new finger-follower valve actuation, a valve train designed by Kawasaki’s World Superbike engineers and enables a higher rev limit, and more aggressive cams for harder-hitting power.

KEEP THE LEAD
A new short-stroke configuration lends itself to high rpm-focused engine character, while the larger bore allows larger intake and exhaust valves, enabling greater airflow for increased high-rpm performance. A new bridged-box bottom piston contributes to a higher compression ratio, while a revised airbox and intake duct, larger diameter throttle body, and updated exhaust system further contribute to increased engine performance.

UPGRADED BRAKES

STRONG FORCE & CONTROL
In the front, an oversized semi-floating 270mm Braking® petal disc and dual-piston caliper with new brake pad materials offer solid control.

A SUPERIOR STOP
In the rear, a new larger-diameter 250mm Braking® petal disc and new lighter-weight master cylinder give you the stopping power to get ahead.

RACE-READY SUSPENSION

ATTACK THE TRACK
A new larger diameter coil-spring 48mm KYB front fork offers improved action at the initial part of the stroke. The large-diameter inner tubes enable the use of large 25mm damping pistons for smooth action and firm damping.

PUSH WITH CONFIDENCE
Uni-Trak® rear suspension with a new KYB shock featuring dual compression (high-speed and low-speed damping) adjustability helps soak up whatever the track throws your way.

AGILE CHASSIS

OPTIMIZED FRAME RIGIDITY
Optimized frame rigidity with a new front engine mount contributes to smoother rear suspension performance for maximum bump absorption and increased traction. The center of gravity and key frame dimensions are optimized for maximum forward drive from the rear wheel.

FIND YOUR FIT
Kawasaki class-leading ERGO-FIT® adjustability allows riders to find their optimal fit and comfort with four-way adjustable handlebar positions and two footpeg positions to choose from.
