Kawasaki unveils their MotoGP prototype

Last January, Kawasaki announced their plans to make a new 4-stroke machine. Since then, the Japanese firm has been working on its Ninja ZR-RR, which will enter the MotoGP World Championship. In order to speed up the development process, Kawasaki competed in the All Japan series with a laboratory version of the Ninja, ridden by Akira Yanagawa.

Kawasaki has just unveiled the final version of the Ninja, powered by an engine respecting their traditional in-line, four cylinders layout. With innovative fairings and cowlings, the Ninja features advanced aerodynamics.

In the late 70´s, Kawasaki competed in the 250 and 350 Championship and clinched a handful of titles. Twenty years after, the Japanese firm is ready to write a new page of their history, with an innovative bike bearing their trademark lime green livery.
