The first clear photos of the new 2013 Kawasaki ZX-6R have leaked. Not only is Kawasaki returning to a 636cc capacity, but it looks like the bike adapts the ZX-10R's aggressive styling.

Update: now with video.

As you can see looking at these side-on shots of the old bike (above) and new bike (below), the frame, tail, swingarm and tank appear to be carry overs, with new plastics and brake calipers being the main difference. Oh, and projector headlamps too. Also, is that an ABS sticker on the front mudguard of the '13? Fingers crossed, but we don't spot wheelspeed rings.

This is the 636cc 2013 Kawasaki ZX-6R

Previously, an EPA document revealed that the bike will have 129bhp, making it the most powerful "600" on the market.
