Kawasaki has uncloaked the 2024 Euro5-compliant Ninja ZX-6R for the global market. According to the firm, the redesigned model gets technical and styling improvements over its predecessor. Mechanically, the middleweight supersport is driven by the same liquid-cooled, 636cc, inline-four screamer engine, which has been reworked to comply with the Euro5 emission standards. The updated engine generates 126.2bhp at 13,000rpm and 69Nm at 10,800rpm. Peak torque is now made 200rpm lower in the rev range. With a tweaked engine, the 2024 middleweight supersport offers 2bhp and 1.8Nm less than the older version. In addition, the weight of the bike has increased by 2kg from the previous model and now stands at 198kg. For suspension, the new model gets the same Showa Separate Function Big Piston fork and Un-Trak monoshock. Further, it also has Nissin brakes. Coming to the wheels, there has been no modification. The supersport rides on identical alloy wheels, but Kawasaki has replaced the Bridgestone Battlax Hypersport S22 tyres with Pirelli Diablo Rosso IV tyres. Let's have a quick read to know whether this model will land on our shores or not.
