(Winter Test Edition)

As far as sportbikes go, the Ninja has a low seat height at less than 31 inches, so you don&#;t have to be tall to flat-foot this bike. The flip-side of that is tall folks might feel a little cramped. Another thing to consider is the stock exhaust can make it a little whiny, so if it bothers you, a trip to the aftermarket might be your ticket.

The seating position is mostly upright — not upright proper, but mostly there. If you plan to spend a lot of time on the highway, you might want to spring for a windscreen with better protection or you&#;ll really get a chest-full of wind. The instrument cluster is a combination of analog and digital. The tach is a full-sweep dial and the speedometer is a digital display. If I had my druthers, I&#;d prefer two dials or at least have it the other way around with a dial speedometer. This is a big-to-each-his-own area, though, and I&#;m sure lots of folks will disagree with me.

New in , Kawasaki offered the limited-edition KRT Edition with race-team colors and badging for that race-tastic look to support your favorite brand. For , Kawi offers the Ninja ABS Winter Test Edition. The Winter Edition comes standard with frame sliders, a double-bubble windshield, fat Bridgestone Battlax tires, and paint and graphics used by the Kawasaki FIM Superbike World Championship team during their off-season test sessions.


(KRT Edition)

The factory started with a high-tensile steel frame that boasts extra wide, main frame pipes tucked away beneath the tank that serve as a backbone with strategically located gussets to reinforce the assembly and resist the great torsional forces generated by aggressive riding styles. Swingarm-pivot reinforcement and a square-beam swingarm complete the standing chassis and stiffen an area much given to flexing under a strain.

A steering-head angle of 27 degrees leaves the Ninja with a short, inch trail that makes it flick well in the corners, and reverse like a boss in “S” curves. The 37 mm forks push the wheelbase out to a compact, inch long, and the entire bike measures out at only inches overall.

Kawasaki&#;s Uni-Trak monoshock system tends to the swingarm and comes with adjustable preload, unlike the front forks that come with fixed parameters, and it provides inches of travel to go with the inch travel up front. At first, I was a little surprised at the non-adjustable front forks, and I had to remind myself that just because it looks like a race bike, doesn&#;t necessarily follow that it is a race bike, and it isn&#;t uncommon for lower-tier (read: entry-level) bikes to come with less champagne than their higher-displacement and higher-priced peers.

A /70 front and /70 rear Dunlop TT GP sportbike hoop caps the cast, inch, ten-spoke rims, both of which add to the nimble nature of the Ninja. The single, mm front brake disc and mm rear comes cut in a wave-pattern that dissipates heat more rapidly than a straight cut rotor, provided some self-cleaning ability (admittedly, not as important as on off-road bikes) and they look really cool and race-tastic, which just adds to the overall panache. Discs at both ends of the bike get pinched by twin-pot calipers, and the Ninja is available with or without ABS protection.


(Winter Test Edition)

Kawasaki stuffed a cc, parallel-twin into the frame, and located it to keep the mass centralized and the bike nimble. Water cooling complicates the engine somewhat, but of course, it also makes the engine quieter as it dampens mechanical noise from the mill. A clever device called the Kawasaki Air-Management System (KAMS) shunts hot air from the radiator down under the bike and away from the rider, the benefits of which are impossible to overstate, especially for ATGATTs (All The Gear All The Time) in warmer climes. As a little extra insurance, Kawasaki cast cooling fins on the oil pan to dissipate waste heat stored in the sump.

The mill comes in an over-square, short-stroke layout with a 62 mm bore and 49 mm stroke within the die-cast, aluminum cylinders that uses a friction-reducing T-treatment in lieu of a heavy iron sleeve. Dual overhead cams actuate the four-valve heads, and the engine aspirates through a pair of 32 mm throttle bodies with Kawasaki&#;s Digital Fuel Injection (DFI) to meter the fuel. Compression is reasonable at to-1, which does help keep heat down, but it will require better-than-regular gas at the pump.

This gives us a little mill that manages to crank out ponies at 11 grand with pounds of grunt at 9, rpm for a top speed right around mph, depending on how big your lunch was. A six-speed gearbox with positive neutral finder funnels that power to the rear wheel via the chain final drive.


Price on the Ninja remained stable with the same stickers as the models: $5, for the ABS version, and $4, for non-ABS. The new-in KRT was a skosh pricier at $5, For , The prices remained the same, though the Winter model comes on top at $5, These prices include 12 months of warranty coverage, with up to month optional plans available with Kawasaki Protection Plus™.


There is no shortage of cc sport bikes out there. Even though it&#;s a little bigger, I&#;d like to go with the Duke from KTM; but if you&#;re looking for a naked bike, you aren&#;t looking at the Ninja. Honda has the CBF — again naked, scratch it off the list. The CBRR is a little too race-tastic and probably wouldn&#;t be an apples-to-apples competitor. What about the Yamaha YZF-R3? Okay, let&#;s look at the YZF-R3 and see how it stacks up.

As far as full-size, entry-level sportbike trainers go, these two fit the bill quite nicely. The overall look is right in line with the larger-displacement machines, and the full body panels largely conceal the small engine from casual view. Honestly, they are both little sportbikes with wind tunnel-tested fairings and an aggressive stance, and they look like it. Any real differences in looks are subtle, at best.

Kawasaki offers the Ninja with its petal-cut brake rotors, and though the YZF-R3 comes with straight cut rotors, the front rotor is a bit bigger at mm versus the mm disc on the Ninja. However, unlike Kawasaki, Yamaha doesn&#;t offer ABS at all on the YZF, a bit short sighted for a beginner&#;s bike if you ask me. The Ninja wheelbase measures out at inches, an inch longer than the YZF, and heavier as well at pounds versus the pound Yamaha.

In spite of the weight difference, Yamaha packs more cubes into the frame with its cc, water-cooled twin-cylinder motor. This is a bit bigger than the cc Ninja engine. Yamaha comes out a bit ahead in the performance numbers, as well, with 42 horsepower and pound-feet of torque. At horsepower and pound-feet of torque, the Ninja falls behind a bit, and that is a difference you will definitely feel below the belt.

Pricing is neck and neck, with both rides falling just a hair shy of five grand. Kawasaki lets go of its non-ABS Ninja for $4,, right on par with the YZF-R3. Of course, if you want the ABS, Kawasaki has you covered for a few grand more.

He Said

My husband and fellow motorcycle writer, TJ Hinton, says, “As much as I like the big, powerful models, these little sport trainers always pique my interest. I guess I like anything that encourages people to join the ranks of two-wheeled travelers in a safe manner on a bike you wouldn&#;t be embarrassed to be seen on around town. It&#;s hard to think of a name more synonymous with sportbikes than Ninja, except maybe the Gixxer, but that&#;s a whole &#;nother category of bike.”

She Said

“I hope I&#;ve made it clear that just because I think this is a good entry-level bike that I don&#;t think it&#;s only a starter bike. If you are an experienced rider, you know what you want and what you like. If that&#;s a small engine with spunk and a sporty look, more power to you. However, folks that are looking for their first bike want to know what makes this bike a good starter, so if it seems like I focused a little too much on that aspectwell, consider the wider audience.”

If it had moving parts, it had Allyn's interest from a very early age. At age 11 when bicycles were too simple to hold her interest any longer, her father found her taking apart the lawn mower. When he asked why she was doing it, she replied, “I need to see how it works.” That curiosity and mechanical drive served her well over the next 40 years as she pursued careers in both the automotive and motorcycle industries. Having shared her love of motorcycles with her now husband, biker TJ Hinton, Allyn brings that love and knowledge to TopSpeed as writer and associate motorcycle editor.  Read full bio
