Overview

Description

    Monster Energy Edition
    • Special Monster Energy graphics
    • All-new special black plastic body work compliments the Monster Energy graphics and highlights the ZX6R's new leaner physique
    Key Feature
    • New leaner physique with a major reduction in weight and improved power delivery offer more precise control, lighter handling and better acceleration
    Lightweight engine
    • Camshafts are now made of SCM saving approximately 400g
    • Lightweight magnesium engine covers are standard and save approximately 610g over aluminum units
    • Revised top injector mounting plate saves approximately 80g
    • Narrower transmission gears and revised gear dog shape provide a 170g weight savings, without compromising rigidity
    • Oil pump and starter gears are machined to use less metal, shedding approximately 70g
    • New inlet pressure pulse monitor enables deletion of the cam angle sensor, further contributing to engine weight reduction
    • Coolant reservoir relocated and redesigned, the new shape and shorter tube save approximately 150g
    • Revised and relocated heat pads contribute another 170g to weight savings
    • Reshaped secondary air passages through the cylinder head contribute to more efficient cleaning of exhaust emissions
    • Cassette-type transmission makes it easy to quickly swap gear ratios, reducing set-up time at the track
    Increased mid-range performance
    • New double bore velocity stacks feature inlets at two different heights, increasing performance in both the midand high-rpm ranges
    • Increased durability from optimized cam nitriding and tappets enable high-load cam profiles, which improve overall performance
    • Pistons have new profiles and improved crown finishing
    • Molybdenum coated piston skirts reduce friction and help with engine break-in
    • Piston rings with less tension reduce mechanical loss
    • Revised cam chain guides stabilize chain motion, further reduce mechanical loss
    • New exhaust collector layout contributes to improved low and mid-range performance while maintaining high-rpm performance
    More precise throttle control
    • Cylindrical guides added to the top of the air cleaner box ensure more accurately sprayed fuel mist from the secondary injectors into the intake funnels, improving combustion efficiency
    • Longer throttle bodies increase the distance between oval sub-throttles and round main throttles 10mm, yielding a smoother transition, which reduces inlet turbulence and increases efficiency
    • Revised cylinder porting delivers improved cylinder-filling and scavenging
    • New ignition coils have 12% greater secondary coil current for improved combustion efficiency, adding to the improved performance
    Lightweight chassis
    • The sub-frame is a 2-piece aluminum die-casting consisting of a front and rear section
    • The new lightweight sub-frame is very narrow, for a compact and slim rear end
    • Intake resonator box and supports for the instrument panel and mirrors are unitized with the Ram Air duct, contributing to weight savings and increased rigidity
    • Frame brackets revised to reduce overall number of parts, which also contributes weight savings.
    • New throttle housing material saves approximately 30g
    Revised chassis balance and mass centralization
    • Revised frame stiffness around the swingarm pivot and the rear engine mounts optimizes front-rear rigidity balance
    • Engine is mounted with a steeper cylinder bank angle. Rotated around the output shaft, the engine's CG is 16mm higher
    • New exhaust layout with a short side muffler lowers weight previously located under the seat
    • An exhaust pre-chamber further contributes to mass centralization
    Ergonomics and chassis feedback
    • Seat-pegs-bar relationship was adjusted slightly, with the handlebars moved closer to the rider and turned in slightly for a more intuitive riding position
    • Fuel tank profile is more flared around its top, similar to the ZX-10R, providing a larger contact patch which contributes to improved rider feedback
    • Slim, waist on fuel tank makes it easy for the rider to grip the tank with his knees or to hang off in turns
    • Front to back, the new seat is shorter, allowing the rider to shift his body farther back on the rear seat step, helping to reduce rider fatigue
    • Steeper rake angle quickens steering response and enhances communication from the front tire
    • Relocating the rear brake master cylinder reservoir forward of the swingarm mount frees up space around the footpeg, enabling a reduction of parts and contributing to weight savings
    Lower seat height
    • New rear sub-frame is narrower, making it easier to reach the ground
    • Front of seat is narrower and seat height is approximately 10mm lower, for a slimmer riding position and a shorter reach to the pavement
    Advanced suspension
    • ZX-6R features the first production-use of Showa's new Big Piston Front fork (BPF) design
    • The BPF eliminates many of the internal components used in a cartridge-type fork, simplifying construction and resulting in lighter overall fork weight
    • The large-diameter of the BPF's internal piston allows a reduction in damping pressure, for better feedback and smoother action
    • The ZX-6R swingarm uses many of the same parts as the ZX-10R; both left and right inner plates, the left outer plate, rear stand bosses, brake caliper stopper, chain guard and swingarm pivot shaft
    • Greatly improves braking and initial corner turn-in
    Brakes
    • New 220mm rear petal disc is 10mm larger
    • Revised rear brake lever is now mounted coaxially with the footpeg for increased mid-stroke braking efficiency and improved feeling
    Race-quality steering damper
    • A race quality adjustable Öhlins steering damper with relief valve and twin-tube design is fitted as standard equipment
    Additional Features
    • New fairing offers better wind protection and was designed to minimize the effects of cross winds
    • Position lamps are now integral with the projector beam headlights; the new Ninja ZX-6R now features dual position lamps like the ZX-10R
    • New one-piece fender (previously a three-piece construction) offers improved aerodynamics
    • New inner fender above the swingarm helps to reduce turbulence and keep the undertail clean
    • Revised front brake hose routing with a three-way joint at the lower triple-clamp facilitates bleeding air from the brake lines
    • Similar in design to that of the ZX-10R, the new instrument panel gives at-a-glance information to the rider
