About the All Japan Road Race Championship

The All Japan Road Race Championship, organised by the MFJ (Motorcycle Federation of Japan), is Japan's premier road racing series. The season consists of nine rounds of one race each. The rider who accumulates the most points over the year becomes champion. In the JSB1000 class, races are contended by production-based machines powered by 4-stroke 2-cylinder engines displacing 850cc-1200cc, 3-cylinder engines displacing 750cc-1000cc, or 4-cylinder engines displacing 600cc-1000cc. Because race machine modifications are limited, race performance is seen as a reflection of the performance of production counterparts, contributing to the popularity of this series.

Ninja ZX-10R

Ninja ZX-10R models have always pursued the highest circuit performance. A full model change in 2011 saw a new engine, new frame and new suspension, offering a significant jump in performance. Designed to enable a greater number of riders to experience the thrill of riding a superbike at the limit, the Ninja ZX-10R is loaded with cutting-edge technology, like Kawasaki's predictive race-type traction control system (S-KTRC), supersport-grade ABS (KIBS), BPF (Big Piston Front fork) suspension, and an electronic steering damper.
