Features

Advanced Technology

  • FI CALIBRATION KIT: Kawasaki's handheld FI controller* eliminates need for computer at the track. Adjust fuel mapping and ignition settings with factory precision. Controller enables you to store up to 7 preset maps for different tracks and conditions.*Sold separately as a Kawasaki Genuine Accessory.
  • DFI COUPLERS: Select a coupler to access 1 of the 3 different preset engine apps. After the engine characteristic with easy plug-and-play technology. Standard, hard and soft terrain setting options.
  • LAUNCH CONTROL MODE: Maximized traction and acceleration out of the gate. Technology derived from Kawasaki factory race team. Activate with push of a button. Precise ignition timing helps optimize traction, minimizing slippage. Functions in first and second gears, automatically disengages in third gear.

Class Leading Adjustability

  • SHOW SEPARATE FUNCTION FORK - TYPE 2: Advanced separate function fork design separates sprig and damping functions for light weight and fully adjustable performance. New combination of a lighter inner-tube design to fine-tune rigidity, firmer spring rate, revised valving and oil lever, reduces pitching effect over braking bumps, increases cornering stability and maintains sharp turn-in capability. Improved fork action provides sharp cornering and smooth, predictable front-end action through bumps.
  • ERGO-FIT™ ADJUSTABILITY: The adjustable handlebar mounts provide a choice of 4-positions (35 mm range of adjustment) enabling the rider to set-up their ideal riding position. Factory-style Renthal handlebar and handlebar pad come standard.
  • ERGO-FIT™ FOOTPEGS: Two-position adjustable footpegs help reduce knee angle when seated. Footpegs allow the rider to adjust center of gravity by 5 mm.

New Engine

  • ENGINE: Lighter weight race-team-inspired bridged-box bottom piston to optimize combustion efficiency and plateau cylinder honing to help reduce friction. Downdraft intake design and more upright engine orientation with revised cylinder offset increase overall power.
  • INTAKES: Rollover to explore. Rear fender with under sat intake channels ensure clean airflow.
  • FUEL INJECTION: More upright engine orientation and repositioned intake duct allow for optimal air intake. The downdraft style routing improves cylinder-filling efficiency, contributing to increased engine power. New downdraft injector grows from four holes to eight for a wider fuel spray, delivering stronger low-to-mid-range power for quicker acceleration. Lighter weight 43 mm throttle body ensures sharp, responsive power. Innovative dual-injector system utilizes a downstream injector below the throttle valve, and a second upstream injector located near the airbox. Together, they contribute to more efficient filling of the cylinder to maximize power.
  • EXHAUST: New exhaust header with integrated resonator maximized throttle response and enhances midrange power.

New Frame & Bodywork

  • NEW SLIMMER, LIGHTER FRAME: New aluminum perimeter frame is narrower and lighter for championship-winning agility. Revised overall balance improves front wheel traction for razor-sharp cornering ability. Radiators are rotated inward for narrower width between shrouds, allowing easier rider movement.
  • AGGRESSIVE BODYWORK: New bodywork is lighter weight. Flatter tank and seat allow greater freedom of movement. Flatter tank and seat allow greater freedom of movement. Fuel tank has increased capacity, going from 1.6 to 1.7 gallons. Features Kawasaki's first in-mold graphics that are more durable.
