First Look: 2018 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R SE

Kawasaki's first motorcycle with electronic suspension

At EICMA, Kawasaki pulled the covers off a special edition version of the Ninja ZX-10R, featuring the companyís first application of electronic suspension.

The 2018 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R SE is equipped with the Kawasaki Electronic Control Suspension (KECS) system developed with Showa. The semi-active KECS optimizes the Balance Free Front Forkís damping to accommodate both the bikeís speed as well as the speed of the suspension stroke. The system compensates for deceleration, controlling some of the pitching that comes with hard braking.

I LOVE the way this bike looks! Small changes but just enough to stand out.

It's still at 454 pounds. Way heavy.

Yup, I think they should have tried harder to get the weight under 450 pounds at least

I wish we could buy these bikes track ready without all the lights and crap. Why does the RR model still have damn headlights on....Maybe they need to make a RRR model.
