Kawasaki launched the updated ZX-6R at the 2018 AIMExpo. The 6R is the model within the Ninja lineup that has received the most significant improvements for 2019, boasting a fresh new, more aggressive fairing design fitted on an equally new aluminum frame.

The model keeps its now-classic 636cc, inline four engine with the added benefit of now meeting the Euro4 emissions standards without sacrificing performance. The ZX-6R also gets Kawi’s Quick Shift, teamed with an assist and slipper clutch that alleviates the lever.
