Rocket to the first turn ahead of the pack with Kawasaki’s
exclusive Launch Control Mode. With a push of the handlebarmounted button, the system retards ignition timing in first

that contributes to improved
performance at all rpm.

and improves combustion
efficiency for stronger pull
and quicker revving.
