Ninja ZX-6R (636) KRT Edition


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 make it the 600cc supersport of choice for a day in the twisties.

The 636 advantage: 636 cm³ liquid-cooled, 4-stroke In-Line Four

The advantage offered by the Ninja ZX-6R’s 37 cm³ greater displacement is significant for real world riding exhilaration. Greater performance across the rpm range is welcome when sport riding, both in the hills and on the racetrack

Improved power feeling

Shorter gearing care of a revised final ratio further emphasises the engine’s strong low-end. Well suited to the Ninja ZX-6R’s street focus, this change promises even more fun on the street and on winding roads.


Assist & Slipper Clutch race-inspired clutch technology offers both a back torque limiting function as well as a light feel at the lever,  KQS (Kawasaki Quick Shifter) Standard-equipment quick shifter allows clutch-less up-shifts, adding to sport riding fun.

Bridgestone’s latest sport tyres: Lighter handling, increased grip

BATTLAX HYPERSPORT S22 tyres contribute to lighter handling, while offering superior grip in both dry and wet conditions, which translates to greater rider confidence and enjoyment.

 Stylish Silencer

Silencer features a new finishing treatment and a newly designed end-cap, adding to the bike’s sporty looks.

KQS (Kawasaki Quick Shifter)

Standard-equipment quick shifter allows clutch-less up-shifts, adding to sport riding fun. KQR does not function below 2,500rpm. (Clutch use is recommended for downshifts)

Pressed-aluminium perimeter frame

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.

High-grade instrumentation

Sophisticated instrument design features a large analogue tachometer flanked by warning lamps on one side, and a gear position indicator and multi-function LCD screen on the other. Newly added features include a fuel gauge and remaining range function.

Large brake disc, monobloc calipers

Highly rigid, radial-mount monobloc calipers deliver a firm feel at the lever for superb control. Large ø310 mm petal disc brakes and a radial-pump front brake master cylinder complete the front brake package, ensuring powerful braking with excellent feel. A ø220 mm petal disc brake and lightweight caliper slow the rear.

Kawasaki Traction Control

The 3-mode KTRC system covers a wide variety of riding conditions. Modes 1 and 2 offer enhanced sport riding performance. Mode 3 offers increased stability when traversing slippery surfaces.

KIBS (Kawasaki Intelligent anti-lock Brake System)

Multi-sensing system, ideally suited to supersport models, uses high-precision control to minimise intrusion during hard sport riding.


Combining the concepts of Showa SFF and BPF, this next-generation fork offers both racetrack performance and everyday usability. Preload and damping (rebound & compression) are separated, facilitating setup.
