About Ninja ZX-6R [2018-2019]

With a legacy that goes back 34 years, the 2019 Ninja ZX-6R is the latest iteration of Kawasaki’s middle-weight supersport offering. Positioned below the flagship ZX-10R, the ZX-6R is for budding motorcyclists upgrading from entry-level performance machines. The motorcycle has recently received an update which was unveiled at EICMA 2018 in Milan. For the latest generation, apart from a few tweaks to the motor and added electronics, the bike has undergone few styling updates.

The front end has been revised with a more sculpted look giving it more aggression. It also gets a restyled windscreen and exhaust system. The tail section is entirely new which is now sleeker and compact. All lights on the bike are now LED.

The middleweight supersport is powered by a revised 636cc liquid-cooled inline-four mill with a shorter final ratio for improved low rpm power delivery. Power figures stand at 126bhp of maximum power and 70.6Nm of peak torque. The power is sent to the rear wheel via a 6-speed gearbox that is assisted by a slipper clutch. It also gets a quick shifter for upshifts as standard equipment.

Built around an aluminium perimeter frame, the ZX-6R boosts lightweight construction that is sprung on adjustable Showa SFF-BP front forks up front and a fully-adjustable UNI-TRAK unit for the rear. The motorcycle gets adjustable traction control with three levels of adjustment. Braking is done by 310mm twin-disc setup with Kawasaki Intelligent anti-lock Brake System (KIBS) and 4-piston monobloc calipers for the front. For the rear, the bike gets a 210mm petal disc with a single-piston caliper. The ZX-6R runs on new Bridgestone Battlax Hypersport S22 tyres.

Currently, the Kawasaki ZX-6R doesn’t face any direct competition in India, although one can have a look at the Triumph Street Triple RS as well.

Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R [2018-2019] Expert Opinion

  • Good Things

    • Gets a performance-focused engine 
    • Offers an aggressive riding position
  • Could be Better

    • Can be difficult to ride in the city 
    • Could do with wider service network

BikeWale's Take

The Ninja ZX-6R is a pure performance-focused motorcycle from Kawasaki. It uses a high-revving 636cc, inline-four cylinder engine and gets a aggresive riding position to match. However, this riding position could make it difficult to ride in the city. Moreover, the Ninja ZX-6R could do with a wider service network.
