The Ninja ZX-6R returns to the Kawasaki 2022 supersport model lineup with new color options and performance enhancements.
Ready for both street and track duties, the Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R reappears in the 2022 supersport lineup. The powerplant of the 2022 model remains its 636cc ultra-compact, low friction engine highlighted by its tri-axis crankshaft and transmission shaft layout, and the exhaust pre-chamber that is located below it that collectively centralize the mass of the motorcycle.
The high volume central ram air induction air box has longer intake funnels, boosting peak power, smooth power delivery and providing a straight line of air induction to the airbox.
The 2022 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R has a digital fuel injection system that features 38mm Keihin long throttle bodies that increase the distance between the main dual throttle and sub throttle valves to optimize throttle response.
Big 37mm piston separate function inverted adjustable Showa forks handle suspension duties at the front end while a Uni-Trak set up composes the rear, with an adjustable Showa single shock.
Radial mounted Nissin monobloc four-piston front calipers with 310mm front discs work with radial-pump front master cylinders and a single Nissin caliper with a 30mm piston comprises the braking system of the 2022 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R.
Equipped with the Kawasaki Quick Shifter, the Ninja ZX-6R can make clutchless upshifts, as the system recognizes when the shift lever has been engaged and sends a signal to the ECU to cut the ignition to shift into the next gear.
There is a list of riding aids that the Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R offer, highlighted by the full and low power modes, a three-mode traction control system, and the Kawasaki Intelligent anti-lock brake system.
The 2022 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R is available in lime green/ebony/pearl blizzard white, metallic matte twilight blue/metallic diablo black and metallic matte graphene steel gray/metallic diablo black with an MSRP of $10,499. The non-ABS Ninja ZX-6R KRT Edition is available in a Lime Green/Ebony/Pearl Blizzard White colorway with an MSRP of $10,799, and the KRT Edition ABS model will retail for $11,799.

Any idea if ABS is available on non-KRT versions in the US? Kawi USA website is once again vague on the subject.
