There aren’t many motorcycles that can offer the same versatility, performances and riding experience as the iconic Ninja ZX-6R Performance.

The secret behind the bike’s mind blowing performances, is a modern 599cc, liquid-cooled, 4-stroke in-line four, DOHC, 16 valves engine which generates 94.1 KW (128 PS) at 14,000 rpm and 66.7 Nm (6.8 Kgf.M) of torque at 11,800 rpm. The engine is mated to a six speed transmission and is fueled by a 17 liters fuel tank.

The motorcycle’s aerodynamic full fairing is combined with a scratch resistant Bubble Screen which further improves its aerodynamics.

The stopping power is handled by front dual semi-floating 300 mm (x t6 mm) petal discs and rear single 220 mm (x t5 mm) petal discs. As far as suspensions are concerned, the Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R Performance features a front 41 mm inverted fork and a bottom-link uni-trak setup with gas-charged shock.
