The advantage offered by the new Ninja ZX-6R’s 37cc displacement increase is significant for real world riding exhilaration. Increased performance across the rpm range is welcome when sport riding, both in the hills and on the racetrack. But increased low and mid-range torque also offers increased usability in everyday street-riding situations, like riding in stop-and- go city traffic, or accelerating to pass another vehicle on the highway. A new race-inspired clutch offers both a back-torque limiting function as well as a much lighter feel at the lever. The suspension also being revised with the use of SFF-BP.
