Kawasaki Ninja R: Beginner Bike Profile + Owner Reviews

Kawasaki&#;s Ninja R Has Been an Entry-Level Staple Since

Bikes like the Ninja R, FZ6R, and SV are ideal for new riders that either needs something larger due to their height, or are confident in their ability to manage a bit more power than what the typical &#;beginner bike&#; ships with.

With an estimated 71 horsepower on tap, the R is significantly more powerful than the entry-level cruisers, sportbikes (such as the R3 or the old-school R), and sport-touring bikes. If you&#;ve been learning to ride your motorcycle at a riding school, the R likely has three times as much power as what you were learning on.

In addition to good power, the Ninja R is also a well-balanced machine that makes a great case for itself as the ideal city motorcycle. It has softer suspension that beginner sportbikes, most models come with ABS, and its parallel-twin engine has enough torque down low in the rev range that it also is a ton of fun to flick around the corners.

Our Take: Should You Buy a Ninja R?

Kawasaki Ninja R

Given how I chose to introduce the R, it&#;s fair to say that I recommend it. Enthusiastically, in fact.

If you&#;re keen to buy new (which I do not recommend new riders do), the Ninja comes in at under $8, with ABS. Brand new. Considering what it offers you, that&#;s a very fair price. But the real value is when you find a great used bike, because not only will you save a bunch of money compared to new, but you&#;ll also be able to recoup most of it when you sell (once these bikes are few years old they hang on to their value pretty well).

The cc parallel-twin engine is considered to be very reliable, and it&#;s fuel economy is also quite good (estimated somewhere around 40 mpg). Paired with sporty but also comfortable suspension, and you&#;ve got a great everyday bike.

Bottom line: The Ninja R is one of the best middleweight entry-level sportbikes you can buy. New riders should get several seasons out of it before they get that itch to move into something bigger.

Reasons to buy the R:

  • 71 hp is plenty for a novice rider
  • It has comfortable suspension that won&#;t cause you to hate your life on long rides
  • Acceptable fuel economy
  • You can get a brand new one with ABS for under $8,
  • They are easy to sell used because there is good demand for these bikes

Reasons not to buy the R:

  • Its height and weight may be difficult for smaller riders to manipulate
  • Not all models come with ABS

Production Run & Notable Model-Year Changes

Production Run & Model Generations

Kawasaki first introduced the Ninja R to the market in , alongside the non-faired (naked) ER-6n (which wasn&#;t sold in North America until ).  The R/ER-6n have received three major updates since its introduction: , , and

First Generation ( &#; )

 Kawasaki Ninja R

  • This was the first version of the R.
  • The styling is meant to be sporty while providing a more upright riding position

Second Generation ()

 Kawasaki Ninja R

  • The full-faired R is given updated bodywork, mirrors, lighting, and gauges.
  • The refined bodywork is more angular, aggressive, and ups the sport looks even more.

Third Generation ( &#; date)

 Kawasaki Ninja R

  • A new trellis-frame is introduced, along with numerous small weight reductions and suspension that is tuned for better handling.
  • Engine torque is increased slightly, to lb-ft (up from lb-ft)

Owners Review of the Kawasaki Ninja R

Press & Magazines

Model Year Review

&#;There’s plenty to like about Kawasaki’s cleverly updated middleweight challenger, which refines its deservedly popular ER-6f predecessor’s parallel twin engine, mounts it in a notably lighter and sharper-handling chassis, and tops the job off with an infinitely more stylish set of clothes that contributes hugely to the new Ninja’s appeal.&#;

&#; Roland Brown, Bennets.co.uk

Model Year Review

&#;This is a lot of motorcycle for $ And while it is an excellent all-around machine, its strongest suit is the approachability and ease of use it offers, pleasingly coupled with enough performance headroom to allow a dramatic upturn in rider skill&#; tf you&#;re bargain hunting, the motorcycle market—like the Ninja R—provides an embarrassment of riches.&#;

&#; Mark Hoyer, Cycle World

Model Year Review

&#;The R obliges as it accelerates effortlessly in top gear roll-ons, with no flat spots or bogging before it decides to get out of its own way. That is an excellent trait to have for any bike looking to be a commuter champion. The clutch and transmission were flawless, so much so that I never thought about them.&#;

&#; Pete Brissette, Motorcycle.com

What I Like

  • ABS &#; ABS on a bike is so dramatically better than non-ABS bikes that it&#;s hard to articulate the difference.
  • The power &#; According to Motorcyclist, the R will do the quarter-mile in seconds- that&#;s fast!
  • The riding position &#; The riding position, while sporty, is more upright than typical sportbikes and is more comfortable people taller than 5&#;8&#;.
  • The price &#; They are a bargain on the used market, and they&#;re sub-$8, brand new (with ABS).

What I Don&#;t Like

  • The range &#; km is about how far you&#;ll comfortably go on its 4-gallon tank.
  • No ABS &#; Not all models come with ABS. Be mindful of this when looking at older bikes.

The Bottom Line

The Ninja R is to modern middleweights what bikes like the GSF and Ninja R were to their generation. Like those fondly remembered classics, the R represents the pinnacle of what a new rider can enjoy in a &#;beginner motorcycle&#;. It&#;s fast, but not scary; reliable and economical; stylish and good looking; comfortable and compliant; sporty and exhilarating.

For a new rider, few bikes offer you the whole package &#; a cake that you can actually eat &#; like the R does. And the R, like any decent wine, has only gotten better with age. It&#;s not often when you find a machine that is perfect for its intended function, but that&#;s what you get when you choose a Ninja R for your first bike.

KAWASAKI NINJA® R BRINGS REAL WORLD PERFORMANCE TO BOTH THE TWISTIES AND MORNING COMMUTE

Powerful is efficient and easy to ride

With a unique look and feel, the Kawasaki Ninja® R delivers cutting edge design and astonishing versatility. This is a motorcycle that excels in real world riding. With a comfortable seating position and sportbike performance levels, the Ninja R is well-suited for freeway commutes, around town errands and weekend track days.

Look at Kawasaki Ninja R sportbike and the first impression is one of pure design appreciation. Look a little longer and many of the innovative engine and chassis elements begin to come into play. However, the entire package doesn’t truly project its intended engineering outcome until the motorcycle is viewed with a rider seemingly melded into its unique posture. Because the R was meant to have broad rider appeal, Kawasaki’s development team began its task with the rider – not the motorcycle.

After studying every kind of rider, and all types of riding, Kawasaki’s engineers focused on the human-machine interface. Different riding positions were examined to discover which instilled the most confidence. Narrowing the distance between the footpegs and striving for a lower seat height and low effort controls all played into the design effort.

The compact liquid-cooled, fuel-injected, DOHC, 8-valve cc parallel twin engine delivers a smooth responsiveness that is tuned for rider-friendly power characteristics – especially in the low and medium rpm ranges. It is a power delivery that will inspire confidence in new motorcyclists. Its excellent mid-range characteristics will make the R a natural in commuting environments, and slipping in and out of traffic will be a cinch thanks to its lightweight trellis frame and responsive steering.

The R’s engine may be tuned for manageable power delivery, but it also has outstanding roll-on response when making a highway pass and more than enough power to make it an entertaining trackday companion. Kawasaki engineers called on their vast experience building Ninja supersport machines to develop a motorcycle possessing performance characteristics that will be a match for anything currently available in the middleweight arena, including those with larger displacement.

Ultimately, this exceptionally well-proportioned Ninja R represents a genre of motorcycle which is at home with both novice and experienced riders – and one that will be seen equally in daily midtown commuting situations as well as back-road-blasting on the weekends.

 

FEATURES:

Unique features
- Aggressive Ninja styling
- Powerful parallel-twin engine
- Compact size and weight
- Low seat height

Engine
- cc twin-cylinder, DOHC engine
- Parallel twin engine is the most compact in its category. The engine is considerably smaller than that of the Ninja and helps reduce the dimension of the entire motorcycle
- Tuned to deliver smooth, responsive power in the low-to mid-rpm range with exceptional roll-on response for negotiating city traffic
- Triangular crank and transmission shaft layout makes the engine very short from front to back, a semi-dry sump oil system reduces overall engine height, while narrow pitch of the chrome composite plated aluminum cylinders helps reduce engine width
- Muffler with 3-way catalyzer and bullet-tip opening is mounted below the engine to help lower the center of gravity and aid weight centralization
- degree crankshaft plus balancer shaft for extremely smooth engine operation
- Oil jets on the connecting rod big ends spray oil on the undersides of the pistons to aid cooling

Liquid Cooling
- Maintains consistent engine temperatures for long engine life and sustained power during hard use
- Allows closer engine tolerances for more horsepower
- Coolant is routed through the engine cases to reduce external hoses

Digital Fuel Injection
- 38mm Keihin throttle bodies feature sub-throttle valves for optimum performance and rideability. The sub-throttles, located behind the main throttle valves, are controlled by the ECU so that the DFI system gives a more precise throttle response, similar to a constant-velocity carburetor
- Precise fuel injection plus exhaust catalyzer significantly reduce emissions
- Automatic fast idle system makes starting and warm-up easy

Digital Capacitor Discharge Ignition (CDI) System
- Microprocessor-controlled timing never needs adjustment and is ultra-responsive to engine needs

- Short, compact frame and engine design allows the swingarm to be longer, which helps improve overall handling

Triple Petal Design Brake Discs
- Petal design rotors offer improved cooling and warp resistance
- Same rotor design as found on the Ninja ZX™-6R and ZXR supersports machines

Six-spoke wheels
- With the same engineering as the Ninja ZX-6R and ZXR, the six-spoke design requires much less material between spokes so that the rim thickness is thinner and overall wheel weight is reduced

Confidence-Inspiring Cockpit
- Low, narrow seat combined with the slim overall design allows riders to firmly plant both feet on the ground when stopped
- Carefully designed ergonomics result in a natural, comfortable riding position
- Textured seat cover helps keep the rider planted

Bodywork
- Stylish full fairing with aerodynamic windscreen cuts through the wind and helps protect the rider
- Integrated front turn signals with clear lenses enhance appearance

Review

Story by: Gabe Ets-Hokin, Feature Editor, January
Today's story starts way back in , when Honda introduced an unpretentious little motorcycle with a mildly-tuned, liquid-cooled cc V-twin engine in a rigid aluminum frame. Priced almost as high as its fully-faired and much more powerful cousin, the Hurricane, the Hawk GT sold about as well as Ann Coulter t-shirts at a Phish concert. However, savvy enthusiasts quickly recognized that with a few choice suspension and engine modifications, the Hawk was an incredibly sweet-handling and fun bike that did double duty as a lightweight racer. Many racing clubs had classes filled completely with Honda Hawks, as no other manufacturer made a middleweight twin with the Hawk's potential.

That all changed in , when Suzuki introduced the SV With a stiff aluminum frame and swingarm and modern suspension and wheel sizes, the SV was virtually as good as a heavily modified Hawk right out of the showroom. The icing on this cake was a smooth, four-valve liquid-cooled degree V-twin that made 68 hp with a stock exhaust, a power output that a Hawk could achieve only by being a heavily breathed-on grenade. By the end of the racing season, Hawks were winning races only in the hands of the most skilled and dedicated riders. The popularity of the SV as a street bike ensured a steady supply of cheap race bikes, and seven years later, club racing grids are packed with SVs.

Sean went out on the Suzuki first to scuff in the new tires. When he came back, he was all smiles
Last year, Kawasaki showed an interesting bike built for the European market. The ER-6n is a naked standard with a steel trellis frame and a sophisticated cc parallel-twin motor. Power output was claimed at hp, clearly targeting the second-generation SV's claimed hp. The weird styling and lack of full fairing meant this bike probably would never come to American riders.
Imagine our surprise when we got invited to the introduction for Kawasaki's all-new for Ninja R. Pete's day aboard the new bike revealed a nice-handling little bike that was let down only by budget suspension and braking components. We also found out that a unit would be available for a full test in just a few weeks.
We knew our readers would want to know how this bike -- the first serious competition for the SV available in the US -- would do against the Suzuki twin, so we called up Suzuki and begged for an SV to test as well. All we had to decide was which flavor SV to compare it to. Some of us felt the standard SV would be a closer match, as the Kawi has tall bars that would feel very different from the S model's clip-ons on a racetrack, where the other school of thought held the majority of readers would feel only bikes with fairings should be compared, as a buyer in the market for a faring-ed bike wouldn't consider a naked, and vice-versa. In the end, the fairing people won, and Suzuki graciously and kindly gave up a fresh-from-the-crate SVS.
Both Publisher Sean Alexander and I are club racers and trackday junkies with many miles on SVs, so we wanted to see how the two bikes stacked up on the racetrack. A few phone calls secured us a trip to the Streets of Willow racetrack, courtesy of Hyperclub trackdays, and a call to Michelin got us two new sets of Pilot Power street/trackday tires.
After a week of all kinds of riding, from the track to the canyons, from bumpy LA freeways and city streets to the smooth sweepers of the Angeles Crest, we think we have enough data to have an intelligent opinion on who makes the best twin streetbike. Does the Kawi have what it takes to unseat the SV from its middleweight-twins throne?
The Contenders
Suzuki SVS :: hp :: $6, :: Friendly and Furious

Completely revamped for , the SVS is an awful lot of motorcycle for $6, It uses the same basic formula that was so successful in with just enough tweaks to keep it fresh and modern.

The heart of the SV is the liquid-cooled, four-valve per cylinder V-twin motor. It uses an 81 mm bore and mm stroke and precise electronic fuel injection to pump out hp at 9, rpm; an unheard of number from a stock twin not so long ago. The Vincent Black Shadow -- one of the most feared bikes ever-- made less than that. Do you still dismiss this as a "beginner" bike?
If only a Vincent had such a good chassis. The SV's "truss"-style frame was all-new for , with a boxier, more creased appearance than the old one. It retained the aluminum swingarm and linkage-type rear suspension of the old bike, along with a 41 mm damper-rod fork. The front and rear suspensions are adjustable for preload only. Wheels are 3-spoke aluminum jobs shod with Dunlop Ds, a / in front followed " behind by a / rear. Braking is handled by a trio of Tokico two-piston sliding-pin calipers and mm front discs- the rear disc is mm.
Perched on top is 's-esque bodywork with lots more sharp edges. Our was in a fetching shade of red, the bodywork contrasting nicely with the black frame and wheels. There are plenty of amenities, like a metal grabrail for your passenger and a hazard light. The LCD speedometer sits above the tachometer. As a bonus, you can view the coolant temperature and clock at the same time. The bike weighs in at a claimed dry weight of just pounds.
Aside from the Duran Duran-esque fairing and five extra Ben Franklins, the S differs from the standard version of the SV by having higher and more rearset footpegs, low clip-on handlebars, a slightly shorter swingarm, and taller gearing. It's a complete package that looks like something much more powerful, expensive and sophisticated than it is, which partially explains the bike's continuing success. What does the Ninja need to surpass it?
Kawasaki EXR :: hp :: $6, :: Meet The New Kid
Lest Pete's endurance of the long tech briefing go in vain, check out his coverage of  the R's press introduction. If you'd rather have me give you a quick rundown, we'll start with the motor.
Kawasaki's engineers faced a daunting task: make a motor that matches the SV's power output without making a peaky mess that intimidates novice riders while saving enough money to keep the price competitive. One way to do this is to use a parallel twin powerplant. A single cylinder head saves money in many ways: there's only one cylinder block, one cam chain, one cam chain tensioner, two cam shafts instead of four, and so on. Additionally, it's more compact, saving mass and making it easy to package.
To inform you cynics out there, it's not a bored-and-stroked EX motor. With a very oversquare 83 mm bore and 60 mm stroke, it's a much more compact and modern design, with a cassette-style gearbox, semi-dry oil sump and liner-less cylinders to make it smaller than the A degree crank and balance shaft keep it smooth, and 38 mm injectors directed by a microprocessor-controlled engine management system keep it precisely fueled.
The motor nests in a slick red-painted steel trellis-style tube frame that's designed to be narrow, light and compact. The most remarkable feature of the frame is the "laydown"-style rear shock adjustable only for preload (but incredibly easy to adjust- you don't even have to bend over). The 41 mm damper-rod fork is non-adjustable.
Brakes and wheels are nothing fancy. The six-spoke wheels sit just " apart and carry Bridgestone BTs, a / in front and a / on the back hoop. The brake calipers look just like the two-piston units on the SV, but with the fashionable "petal"-style mm rotors like those found on the ZX-6R and ZXR.
It's wrapped up in a muted, sophisticated fairing with a chest-height windscreen and integrated turn signals. Large integrated footpeg brackets carry the rider and passenger pegs on one immense unit, which will be challenging for racers to modify. The seat is carefully styled to blend in with the bike's lines and is very narrow and low at the front, but thickly padded and wider at the rear. The handlebars are high and pulled back, but not too wide.
For $6,, this is a nicely-finished, good-looking bike.
Instrumentation is a bit spare, with no temperature gauge to distract the rider. There is a clock, dual tripmeters, and hazard lights as well. The build quality is just OK; the unit appears nicely designed, but the plastic is thin and some plastic panels have unsightly gaps and seams. Still, for $6,, this is a nicely-finished, good-looking bike.

Kawasaki made some substantial changes for /9 designed to improve rider comfort, enhance handling and modernize the look of the bike. Engine performance was not overlooked, either. Fuel injection is revised to improve throttle response and mid-range power, while cooling capacity was increased. The entirely new frame has a revised rigidity balance to enhance performance, as well as additional rubber mounts for the engine to decrease vibration. All-in-all, more than 40 "updates and refinements" can be found in the Ninja R. H

More than a pretty face with a good personality, this is a true Ninja sportbike

The Kawasaki Ninja® R already epitomized the ideal marriage of sportbike performance and relaxed comfort. For Kawasaki improved on this combination and gave this popular model several new upgrades, from improved suspension to updated Ninja supersport styling. The end result of over 40 updates and refinements, the new sportier Ninja R delivers serious performance fun and maximum transportation practicality.

The key to the Ninja R’s slender size is its compact liquid-cooled, fuel-injected, DOHC, 8-valve cc parallel twin engine, which permits the use of a narrow, lightweight frame. Revised fuel injection settings on this torquey engine boost its bottom-end torque, smooth low-mid rpm response and allow it to rev more quickly.

Routing the coolant to the cylinder and head through the engine cases reduces the number of external hoses. The engine also meets stringent Euro-III emission regulations thanks to its precise fuel-injection and a three-way catalyzer system with a new cell catalyzer that’s smaller and lighter than the previous cell unit.

The non-intimidating twin-cylinder appeals to new riders, and has an excellent mid-range that offers enough pizzazz to thrill more advanced riders. A modified shift lever position permits easier application of the Ninja R’s linear power delivery. The manageable power delivery and superb roll-on response enable the new Ninja R to make short work of the morning commute or perform as an entertaining track day companion – all while delivering good fuel economy.
 
This spunky sportbike received several changes to the frame, swingarm and suspension that result in reduced vibration and lighter handling, making the new Ninja R more nimble and comfortable than ever. Its signature trellis frame and offset laydown rear shock design remains, but the frame was completely revamped and now sports a higher quality paint finish.

The slim, compact trellis style chassis received more than cosmetic changes. Revisions to rigidity balance and suspension settings, and the addition of rubber upper-rear engine and handlebar mounts result in reduced vibration and lighter handling, enabling an improvement on the Ninja R’s comfort and handling.

Rider and passenger footpegs are now rubber coated to further reduce the amount of vibration transferred to the rider. The natural riding position and ergonomics are enhanced by a new slimmer and lower seat, which makes reaching the ground even easier than on the previous model.

Surrounding the Ninja R’s updated chassis is unquestionably sportier styling. From the wider windscreen and dual headlights to the high-quality finish of the sleek minimalist fairings and covers leave little doubt about this Ninja’s supersport genetics.

Avoiding unnecessary design flourishes, the Ninja R’s new sharper lines flow throughout the bike, giving it an aggressive appearance. Even with a new, taller fuel tank, the new fairing with integrated turn signals and a sharp tail cowl ably highlight this motorcycle’s compact dimensions.

Beyond its exciting appearance, new MotoGP inspired multi-function instrumentation and revised controls, the Ninja R is rolling proof that a performance motorcycle can be practical and comfortable. The rider may notice the slimness of the chassis, low seat height and minimal effort controls first before realizing the true aim of Kawasaki’s design efforts – the rider.

The Ninja R’s friendly ergonomics provide a versatile cockpit that both novice and experienced riders will use to employ its assets to the fullest, from the daily commute to a weekend canyon run. In other words, this real world overachiever easily demonstrates its versatility and everyday usefulness

Features

Quick-Revving, cc Parallel-Twin Engine
- Liquid-cooled, DOHC, 8-valve fuel injected twin cylinder delivers smooth, responsive performance, especially in the low to medium rpm range
- Excellent mid-range power, exceptional roll-on response and impressive passing performance make even commuter traffic enjoyable
- Silky smooth engine vibes via a ° crankshaft driven balancer shaft, which in turn drives the water pump
- Oil jets on the connecting rod big ends spray oil on the undersides of the pistons to aid cooling
- Lightweight plug-mounted ignition coils deliver a hot spark and save space
- 40mm wider radiator offers increased cooling efficiency
- Coolant routing travels directly to the engine cases, then follows internal passages to the cylinder and head to reduce external plumbing and simplify the entire cooling system
- Finetuned shift lever position is easier to use

Digital Fuel Injection
- Revised fuel injection settings boosts the engine’s bottom-end torque while letting it rev quicker
- Sub-throttle valve equipped 38mm Keihin throttle bodies offer optimum performance and rideability
- Located behind the main throttle valves, the sub-throttles are controlled by the DFI® system’s ECU for a precise throttle response, similar to a constant-velocity carburetor
- Auto-fast idle system simplifies starting and helps ensure that the catalyzer reaches optimum temperature quickly
- New, lightweight fuel pump mounted inside the fuel tank.

Compact Engine Design
- Powerful twin-cylinder engine is the most compact in its category, which helps reduce the dimension of the entire motorcycle and allows use of a slim, minimalist frame
- Triangular setup of the crankshaft and transmission shafts makes the engine short front-to-back
- Transmission input shaft, output shaft and change drum are contained in a “cassette”-style package that allows a compact layout and eases transmission maintenance chores
- Semi-dry sump design reduces engine height
- Plated, linerless aluminum cylinders with a narrow cylinder pitch keep the engine light and slim

Cleaner Emissions
- Efficient fuel injection and a three-way catalyzer inside the exhaust produce very low emissions, able to pass the stringent Euro-III emission regulations
- New cell catalyzer is more compact and lighter than previous cell unit
- Under-engine muffler placement improves mass centralization and the bike’s low center of gravity

Reduced Vibration
- Rubber mounts replace the rigid upper-rear engine mounts to reduce the amount of vibration transferred to the rider through the seat
- Handlebar is rubber-mounted to lessen vibration transmitted through the handle grips
- Rider and passenger footpegs are rubber coated to further reduce vibration
 
Lighter Handling Trellis Frame
- All-new frame which retains the key Ninja R elements — a slim, low, lightweight and compact design that is narrow at the knees and footpegs for rider comfort and control
- Featuring reduced rigidity, the strong, high-tensile steel trellis frame not only looks lightweight, but it is – rivaling that of aluminum frames
- Ideal frame stiffness balance achieved through extensive 3D analysis translates directly into superb handling
- The frame, rear suspension and swingarm designs flow together with an integrated line running from the steering head to the rear hub
- Short front-to-back dimensions of the engine allow for a long swingarm and a short wheelbase combination that contributes to the light and nimble handling
- Cleaner frame joint finishes improve overall quality of the bike

More Rigid Swingarm
- Swingarm stiffened to balance the reduction of the frame’s rigidity – due primarily to the rubber engine mounts
- Swingarm now has a D-shaped cross-section
- The new swingarm and revised stabilizer design further contribute to the Ninja R’s higher-quality appearance
- Elegant one-piece rider/passenger footpeg stays complement the new swingarm and stabilizer
- Revised chain adjuster design also contributes to the improved appearance

Suspension
- New front and rear suspension settings match the changes to the frame and swingarm for lighter, more rider-friendly handling
- New shape of the 41mm fork lower ends around the axle shaft add to the bike’s performance and enhance its high-quality image

Confidence Inspiring Ergonomics
- An ideal handlebar, seat and footpeg relationship results in a comfortable and natural riding position suiting a wide range of riders
- Frame narrowed just aft of the fuel tank enabled a slimmer seat, making the reach to the ground even easier
- The offset single-shock rear suspension layout with the battery located beside the shock instead of beneath it allows a lower seat height as well
- Low seat height and slim overall design make it easy to plant both feet firmly on the ground when stopped

Brakes
- Dual mm front petal disc brakes with twin 27mm piston front brake calipers and a single mm rear petal disc deliver plenty of braking power
- New front brake master cylinder houses a new ball-joint and revised pivot location to deliver smoother actuation of its new 14mm master cylinder piston 
Sleek New Supersport Bodywork
- New dual headlight design features multi-reflector bulb hoods and the twin position lights – like its Ninja supersport brethren
- Rider comfort is improved via a lip at the top of the revised windscreen, which helps deflect air away from the rider, along with a duct in the center of the cowling that creates an “air curtain” to reduce wind buffeting at higher speeds
- New, taller fuel tank – especially noticeable when viewed from the side –adds to the bike’s crouching appearance and allows fuel capacity to remain the same despite adding a fuel level sensor – for the new fuel gauge
- A flush-surface fuel cap and its sharp-edged motif give the new tank a distinctive new look
- Sharper, edged lines give the Ninja R a more aggressive, crouching supersport look, yet the bodywork still accentuates the frame
- Distinctive Ninja supersport design elements of the front cowling and the fairings, such as the judicious combination of colored and black panels enhance its sportier image and compact appearance
- New integrated front turn signals with clear lenses and orange bulbs
- Completing the bike’s aggressive sport appearance is a sharper tail cowling featuring a thin new LED taillight, revised rear turn signals, new license plate bulb housing and a slimmer rear mud flap
- An inner rear fender was added to help keep the underside of the sleek new tail cowl clean
- The turn signals also function as flashing hazard lights
- A new longer front fender keeps mud splashing to a minimum and its two-tone design matches the Ninja R’s light, compact theme 
- Storage options include four tie-down hooks for baggage or a spare helmet to be secured to the seat and a storage space under the seat with room for a U-lock or similar device

Mirrors
- Mirror design is a similar supersport-style to that on the new Ninja ZX™-6R
- Positioned 14mm further out from the centerline, they also offer an improved rear view

Wheels
- Attractive six-spoke supersport-style wheels augment the bike’s light look while reducing unsprung weight

Instruments/Controls
- New MotoGP-inspired multi-function instrumentation, which includes a new fuel gauge, digital speedometer, clock, odometer, dual trip meters and a bar-style digital tachometer
- The new layout allows the clock and trip meter to be viewed simultaneously
- Red backlighting for the LCD screen adds to the sporty image while the area around the instrument panel presents a clean, finished front cowl interior
- Redesigned handlebar holder and new curved shapes on the brake master cylinder reservoir and clutch lever contribute further to the Ninja R’s improved appearance
