New Kawasaki ZX-6R officially unveiled

As revealed by MCN last month, the 2013 Kawasaki ZX-6R will return to a displacement of 636cc, with strong low to mid range power for a more tractable engine. Kawasaki has officially unveiled the machine, which was first spotted by MCN during a photoshoot on the Isle of Man. The new bike will use Kawasaki's latest traction control system, which offers three...

lol

If paint is your main worry then you have your priorities right. You go to someone who can spray bodywork if you care that much. A guy I know did a panel for me for £20 and it looks as good as OEM.

Lovely ZX6R

If I was small enough I'd buy one.

I love it (in green).

Stop Stop

Traction control and ABS, Know slap on £9500 price tag and away you go.
Do not pay it; £8700 is more than enough. You keep buying these bikes at hugely inflated prices they will carry on overcharging.

I wonder how they can design, develop, manufacture, ship and sell one of these bikes for LESS than £10k.

Before everybody starts.........

................moaning about the price,,,,,,,,,, think on this.

Almost half of what we pay for our bikes is tax.

It gets "luxury" tax slapped on it when it's imported THEN they stick 20% VAT on top of that.

Yes folks,,,,,,,,,,,,,you pay tax ON the import duty.

The UK is the only country in the world where its citizens pay tax on their tax.

You couldn't make it up.

Fecking thieving traitors.

636 Yes

The move to 636 I can understand, gives the usually torque poor 600 bike a bit more grunt which is good for road riders and was popular on the old 636 bikes they did. However, certainly not enough to warrant traction control and the power modes. Keep it simple and keep the price more affordable for these bikes.

That bike simply looks flat.  The ergonomics are ruined by the seats and exhaust.  Need to see one up close to make an informed opinion.  Big fan of the 636 disbursement.  That thing will shift like hell when her necks rung!  600 sportsbikes as road going tour/commuter never quite met the market.  Fazers or bandits are much better bang for puck and practicality.  Again, not sure what the market is other than track weapons (of which it will dominate)...
