Kawasaki%X92s F-series ZX-6R was, in its day, a serious contender to the middleweight crown of Honda%X92s CBR600. The Kwacker can still raise a smile, but measured against the latest metal it feels harsh and crude. If you%X92re buying on a budget then it%X92s worth a look, but Suzuki%X92s GSX-R600 will run rings around it at a trackday, while the CBR...
Kawasaki has obviously tried to make the new ZX-6R more usable for the environment in which it%X92ll be most used %X96 the road. And in many ways they%X92ve succeeded. The new 636cc motor boasts a more usable spread of power and torque, both on the road and track, it%X92s less manic, and easier to get the most out of for...
The ZX-6R of 2003 marked a dramatic return to form for Kawasaki. At its launch this machine was the hardest, most technologically advanced 600 of all time, boasting radial brakes, upside-down forks and fully digital clocks alongside fuel-injection, a lap timer and all wrapped up in a tiny, tight chassis and plastics. Gorgeous.
In terms of chassis and handling the new Kawasaki ZX-6R a big step forward over the old ZX-6R. The new big piston forks use MotoGP technology and make a huge difference. They take a little getting use to at first but enable you to brake devilishly late yet the bike remains stable. Engine wise 115bhp at the back wheel makes it the most powerful...
In the Kawasaki ZX-6R, Kawasaki has built a race ready 600 which is road legal, just. Everything about the ZX-6R is track focused, you could enter a standard Kawasaki ZX-6R into a club race and you wouldn%X92t be far behind the top runners. The more you thrash it the more fun you%X92ll have. The Kawasaki ZX-6R is easily the most fun...
The hardest 600 of modern times just got a little softer %X96 and a little better, too. The Kawasaki ZX-6R's track-intent is still present and correct, but thankfully the suspension is more responsive and less harsh. Its new slippery shape means that 170mph is just a following wind away. Also new for 2005 is a slipper clutch and petal discs.
Kawasaki%X92s new-for-2000 ZX-6R got a new swingarm, a revised rear shock and engine internals and a facelift %X96 not good enough to compete with Yamaha%X92s stunning R6 on the track nor Honda%X92s new ally-framed CBR600 on the road. In 2002 it got a beefier 636cc motor, which made it a much improved road tool.
With its genuine 163mph top speed, six-piston brakes, low%X92ish insurance group and evil induction noise the Kawasaki ZX-6R G-series is the bike that overnight made the 750cc superbikes look superfluous. Even today it%X92s still considered a capable performer, though the suspension and stoppers will doubtless welcome a fettle.
