2024 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10RR WSBK Edition
In the heart of this powerhouse lies a 998cc inline four-cylinder engine, now elevated with premium internals from Pankl Racing Systems. Upgrades include lightweight pistons, titanium connecting rods, racing camshafts, DLC-coated piston pins, and resilient valve springs. The result is enhanced performance and reduced weight, a fundamental principle for racing machines.
Of particular note is the variable air intake system nestled within the airbox—a true standout feature. This dynamic system is activated when paired with the racing engine control unit (ECU) and a dedicated wiring harness. As RPMs soar, servos delicately raise the intake funnels, facilitating increased airflow into the combustion chamber. Conversely, at lower speeds, the funnels remain positioned for optimal fuel-air mixtures, ensuring impeccable combustion across all engine speeds.
The chassis receives its fair share of upgrades too, with the inclusion of precision-engineered Marchesini forged wheels. These wheels serve a dual purpose: shedding unsprung weight and delivering enhanced track performance, guaranteeing a truly exhilarating riding experience.
Visually, the 2024 Ninja ZX-10RR WSBK Edition dazzles with full WSBK KRT graphics, embodying the spirit of racing excellence. A numbered plaque graces the tank, signifying its place among the exclusive lineup of only 10 units ever produced.
