Kawasaki Ninja ZX-4RR: Screaming Fun! In The August Issue

Featured In The August 2023 Issue:

         “I was tucked in and flat-out with the throttle pinned as the revs climbed toward 15,000 rpm. I shifted into fourth gear before lifting my head and sticking my knee out just enough to create some drag as I turned into Thunderhill’s fast Turn 9 kink without breathing the throttle. It had taken me a couple of sessions and a few setting changes to get to where I could go through the turn wide-open, but once I dialed in the bike’s set-up and my line, I could run through it at 107 mph lap after lap.

        “Ripping through corners flat out and picking up the throttle far earlier than sensible brought back memories of ripping around on my two-stroke Honda RS125 as a teenager. Except I was on a 400-class inline four-cylinder with a steel-tube chassis and street tires. The equipment was wildly different, but the technique used to hustle them around the racetrack is pretty close to being the same…”

“Intro: Kawasaki Ninja ZX-4RR: Screaming Fun!” by Chris Ulrich


            Kawasaki is now changing the entry-level sportbike game with the new Ninja ZX-4RR, a 399cc Inline four-cylinder with a high-performance chassis, ride-by-wire throttle, and a premium electronics package, priced at $9,699. It’s a bold strategy, but brings another bike to the market with attainable performance for a regular rider and enough performance to entertain an experienced track-day or racing enthusiast. Racing Editor Chris Ulrich outlines his experience on the machine in the latest issue of Roadracing World!
