2022 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R ABS KRT Sports Motorcycle – Features and Specs


The long-stroke engine performs better than 600 class engines at all RPMs, especially in the low to medium range for more riding on city roads. They are designed to make all internal elements robust but compact with excellent dimensional accuracy to prevent friction from returning to power. For bracket removal and weight loss, the RAM air duct is strong and supports tool panel and mirror mounting. The central ram air duct creates a straight path for the airbox, which eliminates clutter and increases the pressure for maximum utilization efficiency. It is a small, rigid engine with a close-cylinder pitch and compact crankcases. The powerful small engine also contributes to the overall thinness and compactness of the chassis.

Mass Centralization

The bulk of the engine is concentrated in the tri-access crankshaft and the transmission shaft configuration, which makes the engine’s center of gravity ideal. It helps the rider to get more chassis input by reducing the pitching movement when applying the brakes. The pressure on the suspension and tires is reduced by lowering the forward/rear weight transfer, giving you more flexibility when editing the settings.

An exhaust pre-chamber at the bottom of the engine helps distribute the mass and allows the use of a smaller, lighter muffler. A volume air box with RAM air induction (KP) supports peak power and smooth transmission. Long intake funnels help improve low to mid-range performance and a sense of strength.

Digital Fuel Injection (KP)

Elongated throttle bodies help in achieving the overall throttle response by increasing the space between the sub-throttle and primary valves. Keihin throttle bodies with dual throttle valves (KP) have a diameter of 38mm and are capable of excellent performance and riding. The fine atomizing fuel injector has increased the volume and a revised spray pattern to enhance mixing with air. The sub-throttle, mounted in the throttle bore before the ECU, controls the central throttle valves to provide a more accurate throttle response in the DFI system, similar to a constant-speed carburetor.

Stainless Steel Exhaust

The joint pipe connects the four stainless steel header pipes to the maximum low to medium-range torque. The exhaust system helps to increase low and medium-range power without losing top-end performance. A pre-chamber at the bottom of the engine helps to concentrate the weight, reduce the emission noise and reduce the muffler’s volume, while a damper on the proper permits to reduce the total center of gravity and centralize the mass. The triangular shape allows for an excellent lean angle and compact look while meeting the noise guidelines.

The ECU uses rpm, throttle position, and gear position to operate the butterfly valve near the muffler insertion to increase the low closing response and smooth overall power.

Cassette Transmission

The short gear ratio makes it easy to get off the stop. A 6-speed close-ratio gearbox can be separated as a cassette, which can cause sharp changes in gears. A gear position sensor is also attached to the display, which provides the rider with real-time information. The technology is highly compatible with semi-automatic electronic shifters, which racers use to reduce clutchless shifting and lap time.

Kawasaki Quick Shifter (KQS)

The system detects when the shift lever is pressed and sends a signal to the ECU to cut off the ignition, letting the next gear be applied without needing a clutch.

Rider-Responsive Chassis

They are designed primarily to work with the suspension to offer a measured, pleasant ride on city streets and highways while allowing strong cornering capabilities for fast lap time. The swing arm and frame of the Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R were designed with the perfect rigidity balance, providing a quick and accurate response to rider directions and excellent riding input.

Aluminum Perimeter Frame (KP)

For optimal handling, the rigidity of the balanced rigid frame has been improved to help prevent the chassis from being thrown off the road or track. The structure, combined with the suspension, helps give more ground ride and absorbs impact without interfering with control. The engine mount angle is adapted for accurate turning and low effort, with a 23.5-degree rack angle with faster handling and better input than the front tires.


With springs on both legs, preload and damping functions are divided into right and left fork tubes. Shaw – Big Piston Separate Function Inverted Fork (KP) preload is familiar to the left, while compression and rebound damping are modified to the right. 37mm pistons offer damping solid force to increase performance during severe braking. All adjustment screws are located on the hook for easy access.

Uni-Trak Rear Suspension (KP)

On the road and the highway, Uni-Trak lever ratios and shock-damping settings provide a comfortable ride. The cast aluminum swingarm has ideal stiffness and flexible balance, working closely with the frame stiffness balance to provide optimal handling. Showa rear shock can be adjusted for preload, compression, rebound damping, and ride height.

Ninja Styling

The front cowl of the Ninja ZX-6R has a fantastic appearance that sets it apart from the competition. Its unsure dimensions not only give the rider a better view of the road ahead but also give the rider a distinctive shape—improved visibility with a pair of LED headlights, each with high and low beams and position lighting. LEDs also offer more bright traditional lights for better light at night. The top lines and overlapping and interconnected sections give the tailcool a crisp, distinctive shape. Muffler finishing treatment and end cap adds new athletic design.
