From a press release issued By Kawasaki Motors Corp., U.S.A.


The Kawasaki Ninja® ZX™-6R “636” motorcycle remains a staple in the Ninja® ZX™ supersport lineup, and for 2024, it benefits from several performance and styling updates that push all boundaries with track-ready performance that prioritizes confident handling during high-performance sport riding.

Kawasaki’s Ninja® ZX™ supersport models have always been renowned for their circuit riding potential as well as their ability to provide the exhilaration desired for real-world riding. The Ninja ZX-6R continues to offer superior performance across the rev-range with its potent 636cc liquid-cooled in-line four-cylinder engine and nimble handling thanks to its race-derived chassis that allows the rider to become one with the machine whether on the racetrack, navigating canyon roads, or cruising city streets.

The 2024 Ninja ZX-6R receives all-new styling that is inspired by the Ninja® ZX™-10R, yet retains its own distinct supersport identity. Its smooth, flowing styling was designed to turn heads and capture hearts. New compact LED headlights, an intricately layered front cowl, and a sporty windshield bring a new face to one of the most feared models in Kawasaki’s supersport lineup. Riders are greeted by a new 4.3” TFT color instrumentation as well as smartphone connectivity, integrated riding modes, and other enhanced features. The brake discs are now round, further contributing to the supersport image, while engine and exhaust updates enhance low-rpm.
