RIDEOLOGY THE APP is not intended for use during vehicle operation. Only use RIDEOLOGY THE APP when the vehicle is not being operated and it is safe to do so.
  • CONTROL - Intelligent & Responsive: The Ninja 1000 motorcycle is equipped with Kawasaki Intelligent anti-lock Brake System (KIBS), a supersport-grade high-precision multi-sensing ABS brake assistance system.

This results in precise chassis orientation awareness that helps the rider adapt to a range of typical riding conditions and scenarios. 2020 model shown.

  • KQS - Kawasaki Quick Shifter : Dual-direction Kawasaki Quick Shifter allows both clutchless upshifts and downshifts for seamless acceleration and smooth deceleration.
  • IMU - Data-Driven Performance: A compact BOSCH IMU enables inertia along 6 Degrees of Freedom to be monitored. Acceleration along longitudinal, transverse and vertical axes plus roll rate and pitch rate are measured. The yaw rate is calculated by the ECU using Kawasaki’s proprietary dynamic modeling software.
  • TRACTION CONTROL - Acceleration & Stability: The IMU-enhanced feedback version of Kawasaki Traction Control (KTRC) predicts conditions and acts before slippage exceeds the range for optimal traction.
  • RIDING MODES - A Mode for Every Road: Integrated riding modes link Kawasaki Traction Control (KTRC) and Power Modes to offer varying traction control and power delivery settings to suit different riding conditions. Sport mode enables sporty riding for winding roads. Road mode offers comfortable riding over a wide range of conditions. Rain mode delivers reassurance over wet surfaces. Rider (manual) mode lets you set each system independently.
  • CORNERING - Hold the Line: The Ninja 1000 motorcycle utilizes advanced technology to deliver superior cornering performance. The Kawasaki Cornering Management Function (KCMF) uses input from the IMU to enable a control function: cornering management, which monitors engine and chassis parameters to assist rides in holding their intended line through corners. 2020 model shown.
  • POWER MODES - All the Power You Need: Riders can set power delivery to suit conditions and/or preference. Low power mode limits power output to approximately 70% of full power and delivers a milder throttle. Full power mode utilizes 100% engine power.
