2016 Ninja ZX-6R (636) ABS KRT Edition
Capitalising on the strengths of the highly competitive engine and chassis package of the 599 cm³ Ninja ZX-6R (ZX600R), the 2016 Ninja ZX-6R ABS 636 KRT Edition model, expands its area of expertise, offering performance and riding excitement in a wider range of situations. With displacement increased to 636 cm³, the new bike offers more performance at all rpm as well as great usability in everyday street-riding situations. Additionally, with chassis settings focused on winding roads, the new bike is able to deliver riding exhilaration in situations ranging from the track to the hills, and the highway to the city.
Powerful 636cc engine
Increased displacement via a longer stroke offers increased performance at all rpm. Stronger low-mid range torque offers greater usability in everyday riding situations.
Race-developed perimeter frame is the key to the Ninja ZX-6R’s superb balance of flickable handling, mid-corner stability and an ability to change lines on command, coupled with excellent chassis feedback.
Complementing the nimble yet stable handling characteristics of the Ninja ZX-6R chassis, revised caster angle and fork tube height, and a new steering stem seal all contribute to lighter handling.
Race-inspired clutch technology offers both a back-torque limiting function as well as a much lighter feel at the lever.
6-speed cassette transmission
Close-ratio 6-speed cassette transmission facilitates gear ratio changes to suit circuit conditions.
The 3-mode KTRC system covers a wide variety of riding conditions. Modes 1 and 2 offer enhanced sport riding performance. Mode 3 offers increased stability when traversing slippery surfaces.
Showa SFF and BPF
Combining the concepts of Showa SFF and BPF, this next-generation fork offers both racetrack performance and everyday usability. Preload and damping (rebound & compression) are separated, facilitating setup.
Multi-sensing system, ideally suited to supersport models, uses high-precision control to minimise intrusion during hard sport riding.
Riding position ideal for sport riding offers an intuitive fit that puts riders instantly at ease. Tank, seat and rear frame offer good contact with the bike for enhanced rider feedback.
