Where the previous ZX-10R's traction control was slightly behind the competition in terms of hardware, it typically worked quite well and left reviewers impressed. However, the 2016 model steps firmly into the state of the art realm with a Bosch Inertial Measurement Unit that calculates every movement of the machine, from lean angle to pitch and forward/rearward acceleration. The IMU informs a new, 32-bit ECU with wheel speed, brake pressure, throttle position, engine rpm, and throttle opening sensor data in order to activate the ZX-10R's traction control, ABS, engine braking, launch control, and "cornering management function." Kawasaki say the IMU is so advanced that it is able to analyze the chassis' orientation relative to the surface of the pavement, not just the horizontal plane, allowing it to account for camber and gradient, as well as tire wear, profile, and compound influence. The Sport Kawasaki TRaction Control (S-KTRC) system now has five settings, up from three on the 2015 bike. Wow.
