The Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R is a 600 cc class sport motorcycle built by the Japanese motorcycle manufacturer Kawasaki. It was introduced in 1995, and has been constantly updated throughout the years in response to new products from Honda, Suzuki, and Yamaha. The ZX series is what was known as the Ninja line of Kawasaki motorcycles in the 1980s and still carries the name today.
Kawasaki's ZX-6R was first introduced in 1994 and has been a source of much success for Kawasaki, both in the sales charts and on the race track. The race track efforts culminated in Australia's Andrew Pitt winning the 2001 World SuperSport Championship for Kawasaki.
This sports bike stands in between the entry level Ninja bikes and premium Ninja bikes in terms of styling. It borrows the styling cues from both categories of bikes and looks pretty balanced. The face and front fairing of this bike looks very aggressive and sharp. The twin headlights get separated by a V-shaped tinted visor which also gets partly divided by a thin layer of front cowl. The black colored, full size rear view mirrors are also mounted on this cowl. The deep positioned headlights and front fender forms the nose of this bike. This fender gets extended along its side forks and gives bulky appearance to this bike. The five-spoke black colored alloy wheels look quite simple and attractive. The engine cowl majorly forms the dual colored side fairing of this bike. The air-outlets, racy decals and integrated clear lens indicators make it look extremely sporty and aerodynamic. The exposed engine of ZX-6R complements the black color theme on this bike. The up-raised fuel tank of this bike looks catchy with flared edges. The up-swept rear cowl and triangular, black colored muffler further enhance the visual appearance of this bike. This narrow rear cowl features split seats on it while it also houses its modern LED tail light at the back. Its extended rear fender carries the number plate and side indicators. The broad tyre at the back gives macho look to this bike.
