Expansion of the carbon family: thyssenkrupp carbon wheels for the new Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R and ZX-10RR
Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R/RR: the latest development from the Japanese manufacturer can now be equipped with ultra-lightweight wheels from thyssenkrupp Carbon Components. The highest demands on breaking acceleration and cornering performance of the motorcycle are exceeded by using the braided carbon wheels.
Kawasaki has dominated the Superbike World Championship with the Ninja for six years in succession. The experience of the racing team transfers into the development of the series models and defines the requirements for the characteristics of the motorcycle as well as all components. The thyssenkrupp Carbon Components wheels feature seamless carbon fibers in the rim bed for maximum lightweight construction combined with maximum damage tolerance. The unique patented production technology guarantees top quality while creating the unmistakable thyssenkrupp Carbon Components design.
“We are continuously working to adapt our portfolio to the latest developments in the motorcycle market. Our latest offer for the Ninja ZX-10R/RR not only addresses Kawasaki‘s top model but also the champion of World Superbike. All relevant production processes and homologation criteria are adapted anew for each motorcycle model. This is the only way to maintain the high quality standards we have set ourselves.” says CEO Dr. Jens Werner.
