Kawasaki ZX10R Top Speed, Specs, Features, Price, Mileage, & Review

The 300 km Kawasaki ZX10R top speed has placed this bike on the wish list of many bike lovers this year. If riders of equal mass and riding skill use this bike, it is possible that the ZX10R will be faster than the R1.  If you like, you could compare this bike with s1000rr, but the ZX10R would win in the race because it’s fast and has a better engine.

Coming highly recommended by many riders, the motorcycle has a Rideology App. So, through Bluetooth connectivity, you can easily connect the bike to your mobile and closely monitor your speed and RPM. Furthermore, it’s possible to check the position of your gear.

Does this sound like a great deal already? You’re yet to hear more exciting features. So, read to the end!

Brake and Tires

A good motorcycle should have excellent ABS brakes coupled with good tires. This bike is excellent as it features dual semi-floating 330 mm front (Brembo disc) brakes. On the contrary, it features a single 220 rear disc brake. So, with good riding skills, you can always be reassured about arriving home safely.

Talking of its alloy tubeless wheels, while the front tire, which is 17 inches, is 120/70ZR17, the rear one, which is also 17 inches, is 190/55ZR17.


If you’re still using the previous model or you’re yet to get this bike, you’re missing out hugely! The advanced model is a real race motorbike. Here’s why. Its 998 cc, 4-cylinder engine compromises not on speed. Furthermore, it has a 6-speed gear, which is ideal when you want to run to work or anywhere else.

Since this is a 900cc bike, this is not your beginner bike as it’s not an average model. It’s a great buy, though, for the expert riders, even the heavy ones!

There’s more. The engine’s valves feature a titanium exhaust. Moreover, the crank, which is a low-inertia, makes this cc a good deal. Not to mention it features a short piston and a DLC, which is coated with a light finger-follower valve train.


While quality is great, the design is also a great consideration. No one wants a bike that no one would admire, regardless of the cost. Kawasaki ZX10R has a great design. Let me explain. Its seat, which is 32.6 inches, is ideal for the average rider. The rear section is slightly elevated to give you a comfy feeling when riding.

Compared to the previous model, this bike’s aluminum footpegs are slightly higher, which is why your feet are safe when you ride. This allows your feet to rest comfortably on the footpegs and adds to your rides’ safety. Besides, you will be in a safe and more racing position all through your lifts, which means it is easy to ride fast.

The clip-ons are much flatter in this model than in the previous version. In addition, they have been moved to the front (slightly), about half an inch, then they were in the previous model.
