Experience Supersport Obsession with the new Ninja ZX-6R motorcycle. Push all boundaries with unrivaled performance during sport riding. To us, the ability to inspire full confidence and clarity when needed most is the highest exhilaration.
Compact new hybrid projector/reflector headlights are a key element of the Ninja ZX-6R’s new face. Mono-focus LED technology is supplemented by deep-set reflectors that make the unlit parts of the headlight appear dark, creating a fierce expression. The front cowl’s intricately layered design is complemented by winglet-style inlets and angled chin spoilers to form a highly distinctive image.
Short windshield contributes to the Ninja ZX-6R’s supersport image. Like the Ninja ZX-10R, the front cowl supports the sides of windshield. Holes in the windshield relieve pressure build-up behind the screen to help reduce buffeting when riding at elevated speeds.
Like the design of the tail cowl, the front and side cowls use interwoven layers to create a 3D effect, with the multiple layers adding to the high-class design. The bodywork’s smooth, flowing design draws the eye from head to tail and hints at the Ninja ZX-6R’s street-focused supersport performance.
All-new styling is inspired by the Ninja ZX-10R while embodying the ideal supersport image. New front and side cowls create a design that flows smoothly from head to tail. Compact new headlights and an intricately layered front cowl give the Ninja ZX-6R its new “face,” while blacked out engine covers and silencer add to the supersport image and LED turn signals complete an all-LED lighting package.
The advantage offered by the Ninja ZX-6R’s 37 cc greater displacement is significant for real world riding exhilaration. Greater performance across the rpm range is welcome when sport riding, both on back roads and on the racetrack. But stronger low and mid-range torque compared to “ordinary” mid-size supersport models also offers increased usability in everyday street-riding situations, like riding in stop-and-go city traffic or accelerating to pass another vehicle on the highway. Updates for 2024 include emissions-related adjustments.
Race-developed perimeter frame is the key to the Ninja ZX-6R’s superb balance of flickable handling, mid-corner composure and an ability to change lines on command, coupled with excellent chassis feedback.
Combining the concepts of Showa SFF and BPF, this advanced fork offers both racetrack performance and everyday usability. Preload and damping (rebound & compression) are separated, facilitating setup.
Highly rigid, radial-mount monobloc calipers deliver a firm feel at the lever for superb control. Large ø310 mm disc brakes and a radial-pump front brake master cylinder complete the front brake package, ensuring powerful braking with excellent feel. A ø220 mm disc brake and lightweight caliper slows the rear wheel. New round discs similar in style to those of the Ninja ZX-10R contribute to the strong Ninja ZX family image.
Riding position ideal for sport riding offers an intuitive fit that puts riders instantly at ease. Tank, seat and rear frame offer good contact with the bike for enhanced rider feedback.
With race-based engine and chassis performance optimised for the street, the Ninja ZX-6R offers riding exhilaration in a wide range of riding situations. While its roots give it a high potential for track-riding fun, its street-riding focus makes it the 600cc-class supersport of choice for a day of riding in the canyons or over mountain passes.
The new 4.3” all-digital TFT colour instrumentation gives the cockpit a high-tech, high-grade appearance. In addition to smartphone connectivity, the new meter also offers a number of features unavailable on the previous model.
Three modes cover a wide range of riding conditions, offering either enhanced sport riding performance or the peace of mind under certain conditions to negotiate low-traction surfaces with confidence.
Four integrated riding modes (Sport, Road, Rain or Rider (manual)) make it simple to select a level of traction control and power mode (Full or Low Power) to suit the current riding conditions.
Kawasaki’s supersport-grade high-precision brake management system, designed to take into account the particular handling characteristics of supersport motorcycles, ensures highly efficient braking with minimal intrusion during sport riding.
Standard-equipment quick shifter allows clutchless upshifts, adding to sport riding fun.
Traction control, supersport-grade brake management, selectable power modes and quick shifter are now complemented by full-colour TFT instrumentation with a number of new features including smartphone connectivity and integrated Riding Modes.
