World championship victories in 600 Superstock and Supersport World Championship Motorbike racing have proven the 599cc Ninja ZX-6R as a potent track weapon yet it is still a great bike on the road. Development of the rider active package focused on offering riders more precise control. Engine and chassis were developed for enhanced controllability resulting in a confidence-inspiring character that enables a calm assuredness as high-level riding is pursued. And it is this ability to push harder, to b able to extract this bike’s full potential – while firmly retaining control that makes the Ninja ZX-6R so exciting to ride.
The motorbike’s unflappable composure under braking better enables riders to focus on precise turn-in. The Ninja ZX-6R features the Showa’s BPF (Big Piston Front Fork). The greater control over the initial part of the fork stroke, combined with Kawasaki’s already potent triple petal disc brake package and highly effective slipper clutch, result in superb chassis stability when reducing speed on corner entry.
