Another special edition from Kawasaki to commemorate the 30th anniversary of its Ninja brand is this Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R 636 special livery. The engine is still the same that has been upgraded from the 2009 599cc engine to bigger 636cc engine in 2012 for higher output. The engine configuration is 4-stroke 4-valve per cylinder inline-four liquid-cooled.
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.
The fork setting are idealised for winding road whether it is on track or on the road. This unit also lighter with thinner tube wall at 1.7mm as compared to 2.0mm previously. This saves 220g.
