Overview[edit]

Kawasaki ZX-6R Ninja KRT Edition











This is the Ninja ZX-6R, which is available in lime-green and black Kawasaki Racing Team (KRT) colors. While Kawasaki's supersports racing bikes are restricted to 599cc, the streetbike is powered by a 636cc inline-four, and according to Kawasaki, the extra 36cc gives the ZX-6R a small but significant advantage over its 600cc competition.

The latest ZX-6R KRT Edition's 16-valve, long-stroke, DOHC 636cc four-cylinder mill is, according to Kawasaki , "a torque-rich, rev-happy, and supremely powerful engine that easily makes the transition from city street commuting to the wide-open racetrack, making its broad performance available to every rider. The increased performance developed by this larger capacity engine can be felt throughout the rev range, which is always appreciated for racing, but also provides a significantboost for everyday use. The larger engine means that low- to mid-range torque is significantly stronger compared to traditional 600cc bikes."

Other notable bits on the 2016 Ninja ZX-6R KRT include a cassette-type six-speed gearbox, slipper clutch, 3-mode traction control, 2 power modes, ABS, Nissin monobloc radial-mount brake calipers and 310mm petal-type brake discs at the front, Showa big-piston fork, bottom-link Uni-Trak suspension at the rear and LCD instrument panel.




Key Features • Class-leading Supersport performance and styling delivers an abundant dose of street potency • 636cc inline-four offers racetrack-ready power yet extremely flexible delivery on the street • Selectable engine power modes allow riders to adjust power delivery to riding conditions • Three-mode KTRC traction control puts the power to the pavement whether it’s dry and grippy or rain-slick • Showa Separate Function Fork – Big Piston (SFF-BP) offers light weight, easy adjustability and smoother initial suspension tracking

• Supersport-grade KIBS ABS provides maximum stopping performance, with added peace of mind • Nissin one-piece “monobloc” radial-mount front brake calipers and radial-pump front brake master cylinder offer superb braking modulation with a direct feel at the lever • F.C.C. clutch with assist function offers light clutch pull and strong clamping force for less clutch slippage under acceleration while slipper function minimizes wheel chatter caused by aggressive downshifting • Aggressive styling and sharp, aerodynamic bodywork clearly shouts: “Performance Counts!” • Lightweight twin-spar aluminum frame places the engine in the optimum position for superb handling and rider feedback and also features a 23.5-degree rake angle for quick steering response, maximum maneuverability and to deliver clear communication from the front tire • Reduced friction steering stem seals for easy steering inputs and noticeably improved low speed handling
