The 2021 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R has been leaked through new images that surfaced online. The leaked images detail the new design changes that the 2021 model features. Images of the more hardcore, track-focused ZX-10RR have also been leaked, a couple of weeks ahead of the official reveal.
Kawasaki is one of the few premium motorcycle manufacturers that kept at developing motorcycles despite the pandemic shutting down most industries across the world. The Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R is one of the most revered supersport motorcycles in the litre-class segment in India.
It features sharp styling and an aggressive design language and matches it with top-notch performance. Its riders love it and thousands aspire to own one. However, Kawasaki has been working on an update to the motorcycle. Kawasaki has been developing the next-gen Ninja ZX-10R amidst pressure to comply with Euro 5 emissions norms by January 2021.
Now, we have visuals of the motorcycle thanks to leaked images from motorcycle.com. Kawasaki has drastically changed the styling of the motorcycle. Gone is the sharp and aggressive front-end.
It now features a new, bulbous front inspired by the flagship Kawasaki Ninja H2. It comes with LED headlamps, with sharp angular contours and a signature ram air intake in between. The rear-end of the motorcycle on the other hand is now simpler and neater.
Images of the track-focused Ninja ZX-10RR have also been leaked. This one is clad in a traditional Kawasaki homologation special green shade. Both motorcycles are expected to be powered by a liquid-cooled, 998cc, inline-four-cylinder engine. The same engine in the current motorcycle has a maximum power output of 207bhp and a peak torque output of 115Nm.
This could change in the 2021 model thanks to changes made for Euro 5 emissions compliance. Kawasaki has announced that it would be revealing six new motorcycles on 23 November and the new 2021 Ninja ZX-10R and ZX-10RR are certainly among them.
