Kawasaki unveil Ninja 40th Anniversary models for 2024 range

Now – for the 2024 model year – Kawasaki is releasing a “family group” of Ninja 40th Anniversary models as part of a celebration of four decades of performance and innovation. Set to be seen “in the flesh” for the first time at the prestigious EICMA show in Milan and now unveiled online, the trio of machines comprises the Ninja ZX-10R, base machine for multiple WorldSBK titles, the highly regarded mid-weight 636cc Supersport Ninja ZX-6R and the already highly praised and equally high revving Ninja ZX-4RR.


Each machine will be available in a version of the evocative early 1990's Kawasaki World Endurance livery of green, blue and white with the bold, unapologetic Kawasaki logo dominating the lower cowl; just like the three-time championship winning machines of the period. Adopted for the 1989 ZXR series of machines, the distinctive livery dials into the fashion for all things retro while also looking fresh and contemporary. Like the Ninja itself – it's a win/win combination.

Boasting a 40th Anniversary logo on their fuel tanks, each machine has had its livery carefully adjusted to suit the bodywork while the bold Kawasaki logo was taken from original drawings and even the displacement figures on the rear bodywork are evocative of the period. Adding lime green wheels and silver painted parts (including frame parts) illustrates the attention to detail lavished on these machines by stylists at the Kawasaki factory in Japan.

Available alongside the already announced colourways for the 2024 season, the 40th Anniversary models will play a significant role in a global digital celebration of a Sportsbike brand that is universally recognised and respected. 

The bikes will begin to arrive in dealers from January 2024. The Ninja ZX-4RR will cost £8,899, the Ninja ZX-6R £10,849, and the Ninja ZX-10R £17,849.

That's a wrap on BSB '23!




In the blue-riband class, the FS-3 Racing team had one of their strongest seasons to date, with Lee Jackson taking five podiums over the year to finish a hard-fought fourth place in the Championship standings. Despite it being his maiden season in the Superbike class, teammate Max Cook impressed everyone to finish 15th overall and secure the R&G Rising Stars award as the top rookie. 


2023 also proved to be a breakthrough year for GR Motosport Superbike rider Storm Stacey, who had his best-ever season, which included his first front row start, highest points tally, and finishing top independent Kawasaki team. Rookie riders Bradley Perie, Jack Scott and Lous Valleley also enjoyed a strong end to the season as they continued to get to grips with the Ninja ZX-10RR. 

In the British Supersport class, Gearlink Kawasaki rider Tom Booth-Amos had a brilliant season, taking more race wins than any other rider on his way to second overall in the series. Luke Stapleford also had a strong season, taking a pair of wins alongside a further eight podiums. 

More Ninja ZX-6R success came in the National Junior Superstock Championship, where Cameron Dawson and Asher Durham finished second and third in the series, taking two wins and nine podiums between them. 

The Ninja 400 was the machine of choice in the British Junior Supersport class, with the top 16 riders in the Championship opting for Kawasaki power. The title came down to the final round, but it was Finn Smart-Weeden who was eventually crowned Champion ahead of Lewis Jones and Lennon Docherty. 

While the season might have only ended a few days ago, 2024 has already begun as FS-3 Racing's new signing, Jason O'Halloran, got his first laps of the ZX-10RR Superbike earlier this week. You will be able to meet Jason and Max Cook next month on the Kawasaki stand at Motorcycle Live.
