Once you have signed up, Focused Events will contact you with further details and to confirm your test ride slot.

Ross Burridge, Head of Marketing & Racing Department at Kawasaki UK:
“Our Dealer Demo Days events last year were a huge success, with hundreds of bikers across the country visiting their local Kawasaki dealer to enjoy the chance to ride the latest models. Since then, we've been inundated with requests if it was running again for 2021, so we're very pleased to confirm the first 20 dates. 

Each event will showcase a wide array of machines, from the exhilarating mid-capacity Ninja 650 to the supercharged Z H2 SE, and we're looking forward to seeing everyone this summer.”

UK press attend 2021 Ninja ZX-10R launch

After breaking cover at the end of last year, UK journalists got their first ride on the all-new 2021 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R and ZX-10RR this week at the official press launch at Bedford Autodrome.


Developed in conjunction with the World Superbike Kawasaki Racing Team, the new Ninja ZX-10R and ZX-10RR has been refined with a further focus on performance and handling. The biggest upgrade comes in the form of an innovative new aerodynamic package that creates up to 17% more downforce than the previous model thanks to incorporated winglets.

The chassis has also been updated, with a new 1mm lower swingarm pivot point, 2mm greater front fork offset and an 8mm increase in swingarm length. Spring rates have changed too, with the front now softer and the rear harder, while a wider fork clamping area for the lower triple-clamp revises the rigidity balance for the outer fork tubes.
 
The engine of the Ninja ZX-10R and RR continues to utilise finger follower valve actuation, which helps to increase power and efficiency while reducing valve train weight. Gear ratios are refined with 1st, 2nd and 3rd lower to make the best use of the Ninja's prodigious power, which is further enhanced by a new inlet port design. The 2021 machine has also been engineered to meet Euro 5 regulations.
 
Some of the UK's leading motorcycle journalists got to ride the machine on Tuesday (27th April) and took to the track for the first time. 

First Impressions are in!
