New 2010 Kawasaki GTR1400 gets traction control

Published: 05 October 2009

This is the massively updated 2010 GTR1400, the first Kawasaki to use traction control.

The ‘super-tourer’ now features restyled bodywork to offer more weather protection and comfort, a range of touring luxuries and options, tweaked suspension and Kawasaki’s new, second-generation linked ABS brakes.

But it’s the GTR’s new traction control system, dubbed ‘KTRC’ which is the most significant development (see far right). It’s the first time Kawasaki has fitted a genuine traction control system – the 2008 ZX-10R featured a half-way house that looked for a spike in revs to indicate wheelspin.
