2011 Superbike World Championship

About the Superbike World Championship

The Superbike World Championship, a series organised by the FIM (International Motorcycling Federation), is the pinnacle of production-based road racing. Centred in Europe, the series travels around the globe, with riders competing in 13 rounds of two races each. The rider who accumulates the most points over the year becomes world champion. Races are contested by production-based machines powered by 4-stroke 2-cylinder engines with displacements up to 1200cc, or 3- or 4-cylinder engines with displacements up to 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

Ninja ZX-10R models have always pursued the highest circuit performance. While each iteration undergoes changes to offer more power and more control, the 2011 model represents the first complete redesign since the Ninja ZX-10R’s debut. A new liquid-cooled, 4-stroke DOHC 16-valve In-Line Four engine, designed for both high power and manageability, is complemented by a new, lighter aluminium twin-spar frame, BPF (Big Piston Front fork) and Horizontal Back-link rear suspension to achieve a high level of control and stability. Through careful tuning, the race machine further elevates the performance offered by the production Ninja ZX-10R, increasing its already high circuit prowess.
