Kawasaki Considering Ninja ZX-6R Launch In India

2013 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R

Kawasaki is considering the launch of the ZX-6R in India but the need for homologation process for the bike is the real hinderance in coming to a concrete decision. The Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R will have to be homologated since its a sub-800cc motorcycle. This rule of homologating sub-800cc bikes has led to manufacturers not launching middle-weight motorcycles in India. Homologation is not only a costly affair but also a time consuming one. Kawasaki already sells locally assembled Ninja 650 in India.

The Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R sees the return of the 636cc engine in its latest iteration. The supersport bike was powered by a 599cc engine for a long time. The 636cc inline-four powerplant of the Ninja ZX-6R pumps out 130 BHP of peak power at 13,500 RPM and 70.5 Nm of peak torque at 11,500 RPM. There are two engine modes – Low (80% power) and High (100% power). There is a three mode traction control as well and ABS is optional. The Ninja ZX-6R competes with the Yamaha R6 and is expected to be priced around Rs. 10 lakhs.

The Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R uses a light weight aluminium chassis and has a very aggressive aerodynamic design. The bike features a 17-litre fuel tank and the claimed mileage is 18.7 km/l. If Kawasaki locally assembles the Ninja ZX-6R in India, it could do decent numbers but honestly our roads are more suited for the Ninja 650 which isn’t as aggressive as the Ninja ZX-6R. Currently no manufacturer offers a supersport motorcycle in India as our road conditions don’t make it easy to ride such track machines.

    motorcycle USA bloggers call ninja zx6r and gsxr750 as cheater class.

    • SPITFIRE

      @Ben….It is not an #Offence to pack in more #Displacement and #Power than the #Rest. As far as #Americans are concerned they will be as #Stupid as ever.. AMEN

      American bullshit. Does n’t mater what the cc is, what maters is the performance it brings. 636 and gsxr750 are very decent machines, coz they are built considering the average biker in mind, so less agressive and good suspension, and will be a treat since our roads aru not that good. So, kawasaki must start bringing the 636. Daytona is here, so kawasaki bring the banzai!

  • shashank

    Since when those stupid americans learnt a nut about bikes…don’t listen to them bro zx-6r 636 is the most capable 600cc sports bike along with daytona…

  • Baljinder

    Triumph Daytona 600cc is best among others followed by Zx-6r and R6 practically…… Track Machines

    • Ted

      But still Daytona is 3 cylinder and Ninja ZX6R is a 4 four cylinder.

  • Pravin

    If the super sports have no roads in India… I always wonder whats the point in hypersports and sports tourers!

    These machines are over engineered for a country like India… really…

    • Dhairyasheel

      @Pravin: Unless you take them religiously to the race track :-)

  • Dhairyasheel

    In the End it does matter. We gotta do what we gotta do.

  • RS

    Yeah mate, but since very less of us will have the opportunity to take it to the track, so considering road use, i will rate the Gsxr600, then gsxr750 then 636, daytona 675 and so on. The gsxr600 is the most comfortable bike for road use with the best overall package for our country. So if suzuki wakes up in time then we will have a very good package which i hope every rider will feel
