New compact LED headlights, an intricately layered front cowl, and a sporty wind shield bring a new face to one of the most feared models in Kawasaki’s super sport 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 super sport image, while engine and exhaust updates enhance low-rpm.

ENGINE: The Ninja ZX-6R features an efficient and powerful 636cc liquid-cooled in-line four-cylinder DOHC four-stroke engine that comes by way of a 67.0 x 45.1mm bore and stroke. New engine updates for 2024 include revised cam profiles that benefit low-rpm performance and help to meet stricter latest OBD norms.
TRANSMISSION: The Ninja ZX-6R uses a cassette-style transmission, which facilitates changes to gear ratios and makes for efficient set-up time for track days. Its 15/43 final gear ratio further emphasizes the engine’s strong low-end; meaning it is well suited on both the racetrack and on canyon roads.
ASSIST & SLIPPER CLUTCH: Complementing the transmission is an Assist & Slipper Clutch, race- inspired technology that offers both a back-torque limiting function as well as a light feel at the lever. The Assist function provides a lighter pull at the clutch lever, helping to reduce rider fatigue, especially in stop-and-go traffic situations.
CHASSIS: The Ninja ZX-6R features a pressed-aluminium perimeter frame design. The two-piece sub- frame is made from aluminium die-cast pieces, consisting of a front and rear section. This layout enables a very precise, lightweight construction. It is also very narrow, allowing the rear of the bike to be very compact and slim. The base frame components offer a superb balance of flickable handling, mid-corner composure with the ability to change lines on command, coupled with excellent chassis feedback.
SUSPENSION: Complementing the chassis design, the Ninja ZX-6R is equipped with the Showa SFF-BP (Separate Function Fork – Big Piston) fork. Combining the concepts of Showa SFF and BPF, this advanced fork offers both racetrack performance and everyday usability. The Showa rear shock and suspension design contribute to rear ride comfort, offering a plusher feeling when riding in town or on the highway. The shock offers riders the ability to adjust preload, rebound damping and compression damping.
KAWASAKI QUICK SHIFTER (KQS): The Ninja ZX-6R features a highly reliable contactless-type quick shifter with the KQS, which allows for ultra-quick, full power upshifts and seamless acceleration. The system detects that the shift lever has been actuated and sends a signal to the ECU to cut ignition so that the next gear can be engaged for clutch less shifting.
KAWASAKI TRACTION CONTROL (KTRC): The Ninja ZX-6R is equipped with Kawasaki Traction Control (KTRC), which has three performance settings riders can choose from: Modes 1 and 2 prioritize maximum forward acceleration, while Mode 3 provides rider reassurance by facilitating smooth riding on low traction surfaces. The three modes of KTRC offer options for a wide variety of riding conditions. Riders also have the option to elect to turn the system off.
KAWASAKI INTELLIGENT ANTI-LOCK BRAKE SYSTEM (KIBS): An updated ABS unit has been fitted on ABS models for 2024, retaining the Ninja ZX-6R’ssupersport-grade braking performance. KIBS is a multi-sensing system that collects data from a number of sources, including front and rear wheel speed sensors, monitors front caliper hydraulic pressure, along with information from the engine ECU to do its job.
POWER MODE SELECTION: All-inclusive modes that combine KTRC and Power Mode settings allow riders to easily set traction control and power delivery to suit a given riding situation. Riders can choose from three settings (sport, road, rain) or a manual setting (rider). In the manual “rider” mode, each of the systems can be set independently.
Sport: enables riders to enjoy sporty riding
Road: covers a wide-range of situations, from city riding to highway cruising and rural roads
Rain: offers rider reassurance when riding on a wet road surface
TFT COLOR INSTRUMENTATION: A new 4.3” all-digital TFT color instrumentation gives the cockpit a high-tech, high-grade appearance and offers additional features unavailable on the previous model. It features a full-color display with TFT (thin-film transistor) technology, delivering a high level of visibility.
ERGONOMICS: The Ninja ZX-6R rider triangle remains unchanged, utilizing Kawasaki’s Ninja supersport seat to pegs-to-bar orientation, which offers a naturally aggressive riding position. A slim and flared fuel tank makes it easy for riders to grip the tank with their knees.
