The Kawasaki Ninja is undeniably one of the most successful ranges of high-performance sportbikes. This iconic status is well-deserved, with the Ninja ZX-10RR maintaining its competitiveness in the Superbike World Championship.
In celebration of this success, Kawasaki has introduced a highly exclusive version of the Ninja ZX-10RR called the Winter Test Edition. Unlike previous editions released during the winter months, the 2024 Ninja ZX-10RR Winter Test Edition is exceptionally limited, with only 25 units produced. Crafted by the technical department of the WSBK Kawasaki Racing Team (KRT), each bike adheres to the team's exacting standards.
Owners of the 2024 Winter Test Edition will be treated to a bike adorned in a livery akin to the WSBK KRT Ninja Winter Test bike. Featuring a numbered plate on the tank protector and an Akrapovic exhaust system, purchasers will also receive a two-person VIP pass for any 2024 WSBK round of their choice. This pass grants exclusive access to the paddock, Kawasaki Racing Team hospitality and boxes, a guided tour of the KRT Box, and a meet-and-greet opportunity with Team Green's racers Alex Lowes and Axel Bassani.
Aside from the unique perks and enhancements of the ZX-10RR Winter Test Edition, the motorcycle stands as a powerful machine on its own. Boasting 214 horsepower from a 998cc, liquid-cooled, fuel-injected, inline-four cylinder engine, it delivers an exciting top-end performance and consistent acceleration with 82.5 pound-feet of torque.
The bike comes equipped with an array of electronics including a quick shifter, traction control, and cornering management, alongside an Ohlins steering damper for enhanced control. To cater to road riding, it features built-in cruise control and a large, full-color TFT display to monitor essential ride stats.
As expected from such high-caliber machinery, the ZX-10RR Winter Test Edition comes with a considerable price tag of 33,000 euros, approximately P1,980,000. With only 25 units available, including 10 allocated for the French market, the bike's availability in other regions, particularly the here in the Philippines, remains uncertain for now.
