Kawasaki has unveiled the latest version 2019 of the Ninja ZX-6R, a model that is renewed on the outside (not so much inside) to adapt to the new design line of the Akashi factory, following lines very similar to those of the Ninja 400, which in turn is inspired by the almighty H2.
The most prominent change presented by the Ninja ZX-6R 2019 is on its front, now formed by two headlights with Full-LED technology and a less sharp and more rectangular design, practically similar to that of its small sister Ninja 400. The tail also sharpens its shapes, now more similar to that of the ZX-10R LED tail light.
The 2019 version is equipped with a KQS semi-automatic gearbox to boost the gearing and welcomes a new dashboard that combines analog information with a monochrome LCD display that collects the rest of the information, including the geared gear.
The last change is found in the engine. The Ninja ZX-6R retains the same four-cylinder engine and 636 cc of the previous generation (renewed for the last time in 2013), but now introduces changes in the exhaust catalytic converter to be able to adapt to the Euro4 regulations. It also highlights its new change ratio, something shorter, to improve acceleration thinking about its use on roads.
The Ninja 2019 now offers 128 hp at 13,500 rpm. (136 hp with ram-air) after its adaptation to the Euro4, and offers a torque of 70.8 Nm at 13,500 rpm. At the electronics level, the generation 2019 of the ZX-6R does not introduce changes either: it maintains the Kawasaki Traction Control of three levels, the own system ABS of Kawasaki baptized KIBS and the selection of maps of power with two available options, Full Power and Low Power, which limits the power of the popular up to 65% of its capacity.
Front keeps the fully adjustable Showa SFF-BP fork and the Öhlins steering damper , accompanied by a Uni-Trak rear shock that can also be adjusted in preload, rebound and compression. The brakes, developed by Nissin uses monoblock technology, and have a radial anchor in combination with floating discs of 310 mm.
In addition to an assisted and anti-hopping clutch system, a practical 12V socket for electronic accessories is included , all to make daily commutes and weekend departures more comfortable.
