Precise throttle control
Cylindrical guides added to the top of the air box ensure more accurately sprayed fuel mist from the secondary injectors. With fuel more precisely directed into the intake funnels, combustion efficiency and power delivery is improved.
Large-diameter semi-floating 300 mm stainless-steel front petal deliver formidable stopping power. 6 mm thick, the discs are able to withstand the rigors of circuit riding. Powerful radial-mount calipers give a very direct feel at the lever. Radial-pump master cylinder ensures excellent touch and offers superb control.
Mass centralisation and frame rigidity
Revised rigidity around the swingarm pivot and the rear engine mounts optimises front-rear rigidity balance. The engine is mounted with a steeper cylinder bank angle. Rotated around the output shaft. The result is improved turning performance and easier turn-in.
Even professions racers occasionally lose track of what gear they’re in. The large numerical gear position sensor gives instant information to the rider — especially useful should a mis-shift occur. (11MY shown)
Race-quality steering damper
An adjustable Öhlins steering damper with relief valve and twin-tube design is fitted as standard equipment. The second tube, which acts like a reservoir tank, and the damper internals, ensure stable damping performance even under racing conditions. (Even if the damping fluid in the cylinder gets hot it will not froth.) The damper unit has an integral clamp so that piston motion is not hindered.
Adjustable back-torque limiting clutch
Adjustable back-torque limiting clutch helps reduce rear-wheel hop that may occur when downshifting at high rpm.
Strong mid-range power
Double bore intake funnels (“velocity stacks”) feature inlets at two different heights, allowing performance increases in both the mid- and high-rpm ranges.
Optimised cam nitriding (NV) and tappets with increased durability enabled the use of high-load cam profiles which improve overall performance.
BPF technology is one of the great contributing factors to the Ninja ZX-6R’s great composure under braking. Compared to a cartridge-type fork of the same size, the BPF features a main piston almost twice the size (φ37 mm vs φ20 mm on ZX600P); oil inside the BPF acts on a surface area almost 4 times the size. Compression and rebound damping adjustment are located at the top of each fork tube. Preload adjustment is at the bottom.
