Kawasaki’s Ninja ZX supersport models have always been renowned for their circuit potential. Even when focus changed from pure race to real-world riding exhilaration with the adoption of a 636 cm3 engine, this race-DNA was carefully maintained.
Two generations later, the Ninja ZX-6R continues to offer superior performance across the rev-range thanks to its 37 cm3 displacement advantage, and sublime handling thanks to its racederived chassis—characteristics that allow the rider to become one with their machine as it provides supersport-style fun and excitement in situations ranging from the racetrack to canyon roads and mountain passes to the city.
All-new styling for 2024 is inspired by the Ninja ZX-10R while embodying the ideal supersport image. While the Ninja ZX-10R’s functional beauty is—by necessity—performance-based, the new Ninja ZX-6R’s smooth, flowing design could focus on turning heads and capturing hearts. Compact new headlights and an intricately layered front cowl give the Ninja ZX-6R a new “face” that will serve as the template for future Ninja family models.
Behind the sporty new windshield, the rider is greeted by full-colour TFT instrumentation with smartphone connectivity, integrated Riding Modes and other enhanced features that riders who live for corners and love cool supersport looks will welcome. Other updates include a change to round brake discs, which further contributes to the supersport image, and engine updates designed to meet emissions regulations.
