Team Green also unveiled an updated version of the Ninja ZX-10 RR

Kawasaki has finally introduced the Euro5-compliant Ninja ZX-6R in foreign markets. The iconic middleweight supersport has received a bunch of aesthetic and technical upgrades with this model. And since this bike is now complying with Euro5 norms, will it make a comeback in our market? Read on to know:

One glance at the bike and you’ll know it is the new Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R. Team Green has given this supersport a rather aggressive-looking fascia with new twin LED headlight setup, complemented by all-new fairing. Kawasaki calls it ‘3D interwoven bodywork’, which essentially is a fancy term for floating panels with integrated winglets.

Though almost everything on the styling front has been tweaked or completely redesigned, the triangular tail light has been retained from the older model. And this stays true for the engine as well.

Kawasaki has continued with its 636cc liquid-cooled inline four-cylinder motor which is now Euro5 compliant. It now produces 121.6PS, which is almost 6PS less than what the previous model made. Furthermore, the new model’s 69.14Nm is now slightly lower than the previous model. However, the peak torque is made 300rpm sooner than the previous model, so you are unlikely to notice any difference in everyday riding.

Everyday riding with a supersport? As impractical as it may sound, Kawasaki is doing its bits to make living with the ZX-6R a tad easier. For starters, it now comes with four riding modes: Rain, Road, Sport and Rider-adaptable which allows you to even fine-tune traction control settings. Even the ABS system has been improved. All of these settings can be accessed through the 4.3-inch TFT console.

The frame and underpinnings have been retained from the predecessor. So, it gets the same Showa Separate Function Big Piston fork and Un-Trak monoshock to handle suspension duties and Nissin brakes to drop the anchor. While the alloy wheels are the same as before, Kawasaki has swapped the Bridgestone Battlax Hypersport S22 tyres with the Pirelli Diablo Rosso IV units in the new one.

Along with the Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R, the company also unveiled the updated ZX-10 RR, which now comes with Variable Air Intake. This is achieved by using movable intake funnels. However, this is strictly for racing purposes only, and can be activated only with the Race-kit ECU and sub-controller.

Now comes the big question – Is it coming to India? We think so. This bike could grace the Indian shores as early as November 2023 and come with a sticker tag of Rs 12.50 lakh (ex-showroom India).
