The Ninja ZX-6R motorcycle boasts a potent 636cc engine, advanced electronics and a lightweight chassis. The “636” has been optimized for the street and the track, offering an exhilarating experience in a wide range of riding situations.

Flex on the Street & Track

Powered by a potent 636cc engine and advanced performance technology, the Ninja ZX-6R motorcycle delivers legendary Ninja power on and off the track.

A Powerful Number

A 636cc digitally fuel injected inline-four cylinder engine works with a short final gear ratio to further emphasize torque and low-end power, translating into more exhilaration on the street and windy roads, and the ability to accelerate quickly and pull hard up inclines.

Keep the Momentum

A high-quality Assist and Slipper clutch reduces back-torque when excessive engine braking occurs to help maintain a high speed through turns in order to enter the next straight-away with optimal momentum.

Kawasaki Quick Shifter

This highly reliable contactless-type quick shifter enables ultra-quick upshifts at full power for seamless, maximum acceleration on or off the track. When the shift lever has been activated, the system sends a signal to the ECU to momentarily cut ignition so that the next gear can be engaged for clutchless shifting.

Precision Perfected

The Ninja ZX-6R motorcycle gets ahead of sharp turns with optimized engine performance across the entire rpm range, class-leading components, and advanced rider support technology.

Superior Braking Performance

Kawasaki Intelligent anti-lock Brake System (KIBS) featuring dual 4-piston monobloc front brake calipers grip 310 mm petal discs to deliver smooth yet powerful braking performance to help hit apexes with precision and maintain a proper line through turns.

Grip & Conquer

Experience greater confidence, lighter handling and, ultimately, more thrills when you take command of sharp turns with superior grip in a variety of conditions.

Conform to the Road

Fully adjustable Uni-Trak rear suspension with progressive damping helps maintain rear wheel traction while putting power to the ground. This leads to confident braking and predictable handling both on and off the track.

Beautifully Aggressive

The Ninja ZX-6R motorcycle features fresh aggressive styling inspired by the larger displacement Ninja ZX-10R motorcycle with sharp and edgy lines that stay true to the iconic Ninja image.

Disruptive Design

The front cowling and windscreen design represents the next step in the evolution of Ninja motorcycles, creating more distance from the competition.

Light Up the Ride

Each LED headlamp features a position lamp alongside low and high beams that produce optimal brightness.

Clean Design

The single sided muffler features a finishing treatment and a distinct end-cap style, adding to the sporty look of the Ninja ZX;-6R motorcycle.
