Description

  • Incredible power-to-weight ratio
  • Race-oriented performance
  • Track-tuned handling
  • Aggressive aerodynamic styling
High-Revving 599cc Four-Cylinder, DOHC Engine
  • Compact, narrow and lightweight design
  • Tri-axis crankshaft and transmission shaft layout optimizes the engine's center of gravity, reduces pitch changes during heavy braking and gives the rider more-accurate feedback from the chassis
  • Light and strong forged pistons
  • Narrow engine design gives excellent ground clearance
Four-Valve Cylinder Head
  • Low cylinder head height with compact valve train
  • Intake ports and coolant passages developed using flow analysis for efficient cylinder filling, more power, and maximum cooling efficiency
  • Forged sintered aluminum spring retainers are half the weight of steel retainers and allow higher rpm
Ram Air Induction
  • Central ram air duct offers a straighter path to the airbox for maximum intake efficiency and provides the mounting surface for the instrument panel, eliminating brackets and weight
  • Flow analysis used to design efficient ducts to the airbox that also prevent water from reaching the air filter
  • Compact airbox and air cleaner are highly efficient and contribute to the minimal riding position
Digital Fuel Injection
  • 38mm throttle bore helps produce more torque in the mid-range, while short throttle body length delivers good over-rev characteristics
  • Ultra-fine atomizing injectors aid combustion efficiency, for better power output and lower fuel consumption
TCBI Ignition with Digital Advance
  • High-speed 32-bit ECU processor provides precise engine management
  • Spark plug-mounted ignition coils are compact and help reduce weight
Pre-chamber Equipped Under-seat Muffler
  • Exhaust header design contributes to improved exhaust efficiency
  • Exhaust pre-chamber located below the engine contributes to better mass centralization
  • Under-seat silencer is small and light to help mass centralization and allow for a more aerodynamic tailsection
Six-Speed Transmission
  • Cassette-type transmission with a racing-style gear stack allows easier trackside ratio changes
  • Close ratio transmission increases circuit performance
Racing-Style Slipper Clutch
  • Racing-type slipper clutch reduces chassis disturbance when making rapid downshifts
  • Optional springs, spring retainers and shims are available to fine-tune the clutch for specific track conditions
Gear Position Sensor
  • Gear position sensor gives instant information to the rider, this is especially useful for improving consistency when testing settings on the racetrack
  • System is compatible with the semi-automatic shifters (legal in AMA Supersport racing), which temporarily cut ignition to facilitate clutchless shifts at full-throttle
Lightweight Twin-Spar Aluminum Perimeter Frame
  • Twin-spar perimeter-type frame is a mix of pressed and cast aluminum components welded together. This combination minimizes frame weight while still providing high strength and stability for responsive handling
  • Chassis's optimum center of gravity makes for easy roll response - particularly important negotiating a series of s-turns or returning to vertical after exiting a corner
Uni-Trak® Rear Suspension
  • Uni-Trak® rear suspension system features pillow ball upper mount for a more direct feel and improved feedback
  • Compact frame and engine allow a longer swingarm, which makes it easier to control rear wheel powerslides
  • Rear shock is fully adjustable for preload, compression and rebound damping. Ride height can be adjusted by adding/removing optional 1mm shims at the upper shock mount
  • Equipped with a top-out spring which improves the rear wheel's ability to follow the road surface when the rear end is light under hard braking
  • Small piggyback shock reservoir is designed to save weight
41mm Inverted Cartridge Front Fork
  • Fully-adjustable 41mm inverted cartridge fork provides exceptional rigidity
  • Equipped with top-out springs so the front wheel better follows the road surface when the front end is light during hard acceleration
  • Bottom mounted main fork spring completely submerged in oil, minimizing cavitation and delivering stable suspension performance even under demanding racetrack conditions
  • Stiff settings are suitable for track use
Radial Mounted Front Disc Brakes
  • Radial mounted four-piston, four-pad front brake calipers improve brake feel over a wider range of operation
  • A separate brake pad is used for each piston. Individual pads provide increased cooling efficiency and can absorb more heat without deforming or losing brake feel at the lever than a large single pad, so they maintain consistent brake feel lap after lap
  • Petal design brake discs offer excellent cooling and warp resistance
Aerodynamic Bodywork
  • Design is the most aerodynamically efficient of any Ninja sportbike available
  • Three-piece front fender with light and compact projector beam headlights and integrated front and rear turn signals add up to high aero efficiency
  • Small but highly efficient ram air duct
  • Exhaust system's under-engine resonator allows the use of a smaller under-seat muffler, which allows a cleaner tail section further minimizing drag
  • Different color panels create a sporty, aggressive image
Riding Position
  • Ultra-compact chassis permits a ideal man-machine interface
  • Slim fuel tank design makes it easier to grip the tank and seat when hanging off in a turn
Advanced Electronic Instrumentation
  • Multifunction odometer, tripmeter, clock and lap timer/stopwatch
