I am test-riding Ninja ZX-10R antilocked braking system of Kawasaki.
I say first.
On a highroad, I am unable to judge the performance of this newest sport motorbike.
Therefore, this is a report of the touring performance in a highway or a winding road.
About the performance and steering sensitivity in ultra high-speed, you should read a technical magazine.
The engine of this motorbike is 998 cc of stroke volumes.
Forms are the water-cooled 4 stroke 4 valve DOHC and a parallel 4-cylinder engine.
The frame which holds this engine is made of very thick aluminum.
It is a configuration like a state-of-the-art super sport motorbike.
A front suspension is a full adjustable type upside-down front fork.
A rear suspension is a horizontal back link type original with Kawasaki.
If it is a travelling of a highway, it will be very easy to treat this engine.
For this kind of motorbike, what it is easy to treat always is not the best.
However, what rides easily is the fact.
If it is a travelling of a highway, riding is easy just like a touring motorbike.
There is no nervous and too nervous character in this engine.
If a throttle is operated for a while, a speed will increase in this way.
If tension begins to be applied to the wire of a throttle,
It is not rapid and the output characteristic is quadratic curve-like strictly.
Therefore, even if it opens a throttle at once, I do not feel fear.
It seems that a fine mechanical vibration occurs on the grip of a steering.
It is common for this kind of motorbike not to be individual.
However, this motorbike has a pleasant ride quality and is Kawasaki-like.
The engine is powerful anyhow.
If it is a general way, only first gear or second gear are used.
In the third gear, it can carry out riding leisurely at last.
I will change to a top gear.
However low a rotation of an engine may be, it begins an Accelerate immediately.
This engine combines powerfulness and pliability.
A travelling like the touring motorbike which omits transmission operation is also possible.
It has such pliability.
Since it is a state-of-the-art sport motorbike, a base carrier is wonderful.
Since it is a base carrier which it combines with this engine, a high performance is indispensable.
If a throttle is opened greatly, a soft rear suspension will hold a road surface.
Tyres do not separate from a road surface, as it rooted.
Even if it opens a throttle greatly by a lower gear, a rear wheel does not riot.
On the other hand, it is a front fork.
This is my favorite front fork.
This motorbike has a big piston front fork made by SHOWA.
I experienced in the trial ride of Ninja ZX-6R.
It is very pliant and, moreover, comfortable to ride in.
And near a bottom, it is tough.
There is no shortage of a performance.
It is a very wonderful nose undercarriage.
The action of a motorbike,
If it is such a speed, even if it carries out riding roughly, no problems arise.
This chassis is as perfect as it.
A front-and-rear base carrier has very good play.
It is easy to treat a super sport motorbike in recent years anyhow.
Brakes are completely the designs for racetracks.
A rear brake does not have a practical braking force.
A front brake has the capability to stop a wheel assembly with one finger.
Although a rear brake does not have sufficient braking force, it is available in a control of a motorbike.
In order to control the posture and driving force of a car bodies, it continues stepping on a pedal.
It is a very available brake in such a case.
I will explain some details.
All the newest electronic control devices are equipped.
And a tachometer is a characteristic LED type.
A speedometer is LCD of a digital display.
It displays a setting of various electronic control devices, time, a temperature, etc.
It is a various functions measuring instrument meter as it can be said to be the trip computer for motorbikes.
If it is in the corner of a visibility, it can grasp a speed of rotation intuitively.
This tachometer is very convenient.
The steering damper made by Ohlins is also a standard equipment article.
Work of this is good.
The same steering as a racer will transmit the undulation of a road surface to the whole motorbike.
However, the car bodies is very stable by this steering damper.
There are hangers for luggages.
Kawasaki does not omit necessaries.
As for such a sport motorbike, many are used in a touring.
Therefore, judgment of Kawasaki is right.
This Ninja ZX-10R is wonderful.
It is that a lane change while accelerating in this way is light.
The motorbike with high power and a thick tyre becomes heavy in a high speed in many cases.
Such a tendency cannot be found in this motorbike.
It can do a lane change simply, with a throttle opened.
A rider's position is unexpectedly comfortable.
The same tendency is seen in many makers.
A forward tilting of the body also has little a rider's Fatigue so strongly.
This is a winding road.
All electronic control devices are carried.
When running a typical narrow winding road,
These electronic control devices carried are safe materials.
Of course, unreasonableness is not good.
However, the sense of security that they secure the stable characteristic of a motorbike to the last is high.
An electronic traction control has a prediction function and is a racer type.
Moreover, the antilocked braking system also operates more precisely.
It is impossible to test such a device here.
However, the mental margin for these to bring about is greatest.
In a winding road with much such an irregularity, the motorbike is very stable.
The front wheel and the rear wheel are moving up and down violently.
Of course, a pitching occurs frequently.
However, the heavy load is focusing.
And there is a rider in the midrange of a motorbike.
Therefore, the rider itself is not shaken.
Since it is comfortable to ride in and a visibility does not blur, it is easy to control a motorbike.
One finger is enough if it is for a braking force.
I certainly use a rear brake in the early stages of a curve.
However, in the case of this motorbike, a front brake is powerful and controllable.
Therefore, it is satisfactory even if it does not use a rear brake.
Thus, in a tight curve, since the road surface tracking of a front fork is high, there is no fear of insecurity.
A steering sensitivity is also very light.
The edit of a trajectory is easy even if the throttle is opened.
After all, a state-of-the-art super sport motorbike is wonderful.
The intervention timing of antilocked braking system is fairly late.
A steering sensitivity is light.
It is the impression of turning in the direction of a line of sight automatically.
Although it is powerful, it is very easy to treat this motorbike.
It began to get down from a winding road.
U-turn should be performed carefully.
The fuel-tank upper part is large.
Therefore, if a steering is operated greatly, a fuel tank will interfere in a wrist.
Although it is a problem of habituation, U-turn requires careful cautions.
It gets down and the steering sensitivity is light also on the road.
It seems that a turn is automatically carried out only by turning a line of sight.
In many super sport motorbikes, it feels uneasy on a downward slope in many cases.
However, such a tendency cannot be found in this motorbike.
Work of the big piston front fork made by SHOWA is wonderful.
A ride quality is very a soft.
It moved finely and has forced the tyre on the road surface.
Even if pushed in deeply, the fall of a work done is not seen.
It is also easy to lean a motorbike to right and left quickly.
A steering sensitivity is light.
Evolution of a state-of-the-art super sport motorbike is wonderful after all.
Probably, various opinions exist to such a motorbike.
However, a very exact steering sensitivity,
A precise base carrier, the latest electronic control device.
Only in a super sport motorbike, it can experience them.
Therefore, I do not think it meaningless to operate such a motorbike on a highroad.
Since it is a motorbike out of which a speed comes, self-control is indispensable.
If you do not forget it, this motorbike will be a very pleasant motorbike in a winding road.
