About the Superbike World Championship

The Superbike World Championship, a series recognised 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.

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.
