2013 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R: Official pics, video, specs
Kawasaki have finally released details of the 2013 Ninja ZX-6R, which gets a new 636cc inline-four that replaces the earlier 599cc engine. The company has not released any official power output figures but it's widely rumoured that the new new 636cc engine produces 130bhp and Kawasaki claim that the new engine not only offers better performance, but also improved usability in everyday street riding.
Keeping in step with the inevitable march in technology, the new ZX-6R comes with a 3-mode traction control system (KTRC) and two selectable power modes, an ‘intelligent’ anti-lock braking system (KIBS), fully adjustable 41mm Showa big piston forks, fully adjustable Uni-Trak rear suspension and a slipper clutch. The bike rides on 17-inch alloys with 120/70 (front) and 180/55 (rear) tyres. Kerb weight is 192 kilos and the 2013 ZX-6R is priced at US$12,699.
We think the new ZX-6R looks good. Should be interesting to see how it performs against bikes like the Triumph Daytona 675R and MV Agusta F3!
