Buyer’s Guide Model Detail

Colours shown may not be available in Canada.
Kawasaki continues to keep its 600-class supersport up to date, with an upshift-only quickshifter, new riding modes, updated suspension (Showa SFF-BP components), and revised braking system. The ZX-6R gets new fuel injectors this year, helping the engine meat Euro4 emissions standards, and revised 15-43 final gearing, for more usability on the street. And, the price has dropped. This machine is a win for riders no matter how you look at it. ABS is a $1,000 option, and if you want the version with the lime green KRT paint scheme, that's another $1,200.
