It not only had good number of pole positions, but also won the championships twice in last four years. While the Ninja ZX-6R is performing well in various international racing competitions, we are sure our customers in India will enjoy ridding this supersports bike. After pre-bookings announcement, we have received overwhelming response with excellent number of bookings. We are confident and positive about the performance of our Ninja ZX-6R in the Indian market.
For 2019, the ZX-6R also comes with Kawasaki traction control, Kawasaki intelligent Anti lock braking system and Kawasaki quick shifter. The supersports bike comes shod in Bridgestone hypersport S22 rubber and 17-inch alloy wheels.
Powering the 2019 ZX-6R is the same 636cc engine that makes 130 ps and 70.8 Nm of torque and comes mated to a 6-speed transmission and gets power modes as well.
However being a 600cc offering, the ZX-6R doesn’t have any direct rivals; however the Ducati Panigale and Triumph Street Triple RS come quite close to the competition.
