The Japanese manufacturer launches ZX-6R in the Indian market, making its re-entry into the middle-weight supersport segment. The bike was showcased in the India Bike Week recently, and today, they have announced the price of it to kick-start the year 2024. The bike was discounted after the BS-6 emissions norms became active on April 1, 2020.
The design has been significantly updated to align with the current-generation ZX-10R. The front facia looks more aggressive than before, with split LED headlamps, redesigned windshield and other subtle changes in bodywork. The bike can be had in two colours – the signature Kawasaki green or a stealthier black and green option. In terms of features, the ZX-6R gets a 4.3-inch TFT dash with Bluetooth connectivity. The bike also has four riding modes: Sport, Road, Rain and Rider. The bike also comes with an assist-and-slipper clutch and an advanced suspension system. In terms of hardware, it is almost unchanged from the earlier version. It gets adjustable Showa USD forks and a rear shock. Braking duties are being done by dual 310mm discs up front and a single 220mm rear disc.
Kawasaki ZX-6R comes equipped with a 636cc, liquid-cooled, inline-four engine that produces 128hp of peak power at 13,000rpm and 69Nm of peak torque at 11,000rpm. The weight has been increased by 2 kgs, making it 198 kg. Kawasaki ZX-6R goes up against Honda CBR650R and Aprilia RS 660.
