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 bys 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.

Production Model

Ninja ZX-10RR

Designed to deliver race-winning circuit performance, the new Ninja ZX-10RR further elevates the potential for victory in the Superbike World Championship care of numerous updates that complement the strong acceleration and sharp handling of the already formidable Ninja ZX-10R.
A high-rigidity crankcase and modified cylinder head were both designed with a race-tuned engine in mind. A new quick shifter allows both clutchless upshifts and downshifts. And forged Marchesini wheels designed specifically for the Ninja ZX-10RR contribute to even quicker direction changes.
Features inherited from the Ninja ZX-10R include Kawasaki’s next-level electronic engine and chassis management systems, the high-spec Balance Free Front Fork that features the same construction used on Jonathan Rea and Tom Sykes’ race machines, and its potent Brembo brake package.
