Naturally aggressive ergonomics

Naturally aggressive ergonomics

Riding position ideal for sport riding offers intuitive fit that puts riders instantly at ease. Tank, seat and rear frame offer good contact with the bike for enhanced rider feedback. Seat is short front-to-back, allowing the rider to rest his tailbone on the rear seat step, further contributing to the excellent feedback the rider gets from the chassis.

SFF-BP (Separate Function Fork – Big Piston)

Combining the concepts of Showa SFF and BPF, this next-generation fork offers both racetrack performance and everyday usability. Preload and damping (rebound & compression) are separated, facilitating setup. All the adjusters are located at the top of the fork tubes: preload on the left; compression and rebound dumping on the right.

The Advantage offered by the new Ninja ZX-6R's 37cm3 displacement increase is significant for real world riding exhilaration. Enhanced performance across the rpm range is welcome when sport riding, both in the hills and on the racetrack. But increased low and mid-range torque also offers increased usability in everyday street-riding situations, like riding in stop-and-go traffic, or accelerating to pass another vehicle on the highway.
