2019 KAWASAKI ZX-6R – GALLERY & WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW!

Yep, you heard that right folks! The Supersport era isn’t disappearing just yet…

Kawasaki have finally unveiled the 2019 middleweight Ninja, and it’s got us all raring for a ride… but what’s new, besides those snazzy looking fairings?

ENGINE – Utilising the same 636cc engine as before, Kawasaki have updated the engine to meet Euro4 regulations, while giving it shorter gearing and a revised final ratio for a stronger low-end and an Assist & Slipper Clutch.

CHASSIS – The 2019 model will use the same pressed-aluminium perimeter frame as before.

SUSPENSION – It will be coming with Showa 41mm fully adjustable Separate Function Big Piston forks, alongside the same fully adjustable gas-charged shock on the previous model which has been given  a slightly longer spring with a softer spring weight for added comfort.

BRAKES – The ZX-6R will come equipped with dual semi-floating 310mm discs, alongside dual mounted Monobloc 4-piston calipers on the front, with a single 220mm disc on the rear.

ELECTRONICS – Kawasaki have gifted the ZX-6R with a three-mode Traction control system, a Quick shifter (but no blipper), ABS system and a new high grade dash which allows you to switch between low and high power modes.

TYRES – The 2019 ZX-6R will now come on Bridgestone’s latest sports tyres, the Hypersport S22.

EXTRA – It also comes with adjustable levers, a 12v power socket and that new edgy look – which includes LED lights.

CONCLUSION – We can’t wait to get our greasy mitts on one!
