General information about the 2000-2001 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-11

The ZX-11 appeals to riders in various situations. Its suspension tuning and an ergonomic layout provide a smooth, comfortable, and extremely competent ride on the highway. Swathed in Luminous Vintage Red for 2001, the aerodynamically slippery bodywork and massive twin-spar aluminum frame of the ZX-11 exudes a powerful, yet elegant presence. The compact four-cylinder 1052cc liquid-cooled engine with 16 valves and dual overhead cams backs it up.

Large 40mm carburetors feed the compact combustion chambers through ultra-short Straight Shot Intake ports that increase horsepower and provide instant throttle response. Kawasaki’s Twin Ram Air induction system pressurizes the airbox with cool, dense air and, as speeds increase, more fuel mixture is packed into the cylinders for stronger power at highway speeds. A gear-driven engine balancer smoothes engine vibration for increased rider comfort.

The engine is hung in a twin-spar frame made from lightweight welded sheet and hollow-cast aluminum pieces and is extremely rigid for precise handling. Aluminum is also used throughout the UNI-TRAK® rear suspension system that progressively increases the damping and spring rate forces on the single shock as the suspension is compressed.
