Capitalising on the strengths of the highly competitive engine and chassis package of the 599 cm³ Ninja ZX-6R (ZX600R), the 2018 Ninja ZX-6R 636 KRT Edition model, expands its area of expertise, offering performance and riding excitement in a wider range of situations. With displacement increased to 636 cm³, the bike offers more performance at all rpm as well as great usability in everyday street-riding situations with advanced electronic controls like KRTC and KIBS. Additionally, with chassis settings focused on winding roads, the bike is able to deliver riding exhilaration in situations ranging from the track to the hills, and the highway to the city.
Increased displacement via a longer stroke offers increased performance at all rpm. Stronger low-mid range torque offers greater usability in everyday riding situations.
Riding position ideal for sport riding offers an intuitive fit that puts riders instantly at ease. Tank, seat and rear frame offer good contact with the bike for enhanced rider feedback.
Close-ratio 6-speed cassette transmission facilitates gear ratio changes to suit circuit conditions.
Riders can choose from Full Power or Low Power mode.
Larger volume silencer helps reduce noise levels. Its triangular design achieves required volume, a high lean angle and a compact image.
Pre-chamber helps minimise silencer volume, contributing to mass centralisation.
Race-developed perimeter frame is the key to the Ninja ZX-6R’s superb balance of flickable handling, mid-corner stability and an ability to change lines on command, coupled with excellent chassis feedback.
Easy-to-read instrument panel features a large-dial tachometer and a multi-function screen that includes a large numerical gear position indicator.
Highly rigid, radial-mount monobloc Nissin calipers deliver a firmer feel at the lever for enhanced control. Larger 310 mm petal disc brakes and a radial-pump front brake master cylinder complete the front brake package, ensuring powerful braking with excellent feel. 220 mm petal disc brake and light caliper slow the rear. ABS is standard on the Ninja ZX-6R 636 KRT EDITION.
The 3-mode KTRC system covers a wide variety of riding conditions. Modes 1 and 2 offer enhanced sport riding performance. Mode 3 offers increased stability when traversing slippery surfaces.
Multi-sensing system, ideally suited to supersport models, uses high-precision control to minimise intrusion during hard sport riding.
Combining the concepts of Showa SFF and BPF, this next-generation fork offers both racetrack performance and everyday usability. Preload and damping (rebound & compression) are separated, facilitating setup.
Spring rates and damping settings chosen to maximise performance on winding roads enable riders to enjoy the Ninja ZX-6R’s sporty performance in a wider range of situations.
