2012 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R Review and Specification

Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R

That DNA begins with a 16-valve, DOHC inline-four engine that’s everything a top-shelf middleweight power plant should be: supremely powerful, smooth, and blessed with hammer-like reliability. Critics everywhere agree the kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R runs and performs like a larger-displacement motorcycle, and one that packs a rolling chassis that out-handles and out-suspends all others. It’s a perfect combination for street riders, track day junkies and racers alike, a flexibility that helps explain its many 600 compare victories.

The Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R packs all this and more underneath its 599cc engine, twin spar aluminum frame and advanced Showa suspension. Whether you’re a street rider or a racer, this bike packs the kind of potent strength that will satisfy even the most discriminating enthusiasts.

The 2012 Kawasaki ZX-6R carries on the tradition of middleweight dominance – started back in 1985 with the revolutionary Kawasaki ZX600-A1 – to a staggering level. And in today’s ultra-competitive 600 super sport market, where technology, racetrack success and street bike acumen can change dramatically year by year, that’s saying a lot. Don’t believe us? Then ask the many top-level magazines and web sites that picked the current-spec Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R as Best Middleweight. It was an absolutely dominating 600 shootout performance – and one sure to be replicated in 2012 due to the Ninja ZX-6R track-honed DNA and seamless all-around capability.
