Review of 2016 Ninja ZX-10R by KRT World champions

March 22, 2016

The media launch of the 2016 Ninja ZX-10R was also an ideal environment for both KRT riders to experience the machine that their new World Superbike challenge is focused on.  

Featuring the most comprehensive electronic rider aid package yet found on a Ninja, Sykes wanted to get a feeling for the bike that he and his Crew Chief, Marcel Duinker had gradually developed since 2011. For Rea and his Crew Chief, Pere Riba, the opportunity to assess a race kit ECU equipped bike around the demanding 5.5km Sepang International Circuit was a chance not to be missed. Watch now as Sykes (the 2013 World SBK Champion), and Rea (the 2015 World SBK Champion) give us their direct feedback on the Ninja that is the closest ever to a World Superbike contender straight from the crate on track and an equally impressive all-round package as road motorcycle.
