636 cm3 liquid-cooled, 4-stroke In-Line Four

636 cm3 liquid-cooled, 4-stroke In-Line Four

The advantage offered by the Ninja ZX-6R’s 37 cm3 greater displacement is significant for real world riding exhilaration. Greater performance across the rpm range is welcome when sport riding, both in the hills and on the racetrack. But stronger low and mid-range torque compared to “ordinary” mid-size supersport models also offers increased usability in everyday street-riding situations, like riding in stop-and-go city traffic, or accelerating to pass another vehicle on the highway. Updates for 2019 ensure emissions clear Euro4 regulations.

High-grade instrumentation
