When Kawasaki set out to create some marketing material for its all-new 2013 Ninja X-6R, it took its supersport machine to the ultimate proving grounds – the Isle of Man TT course.

With TT star James Hillier at the controls of the 636cc Ninja, camera crews were able to capture some unique images and film at the 37.73-mile TT course.

And Hillier knows the TT; the Brit, who won the 2008 TT Newcomer of the Year award, took a podium in the Lightweight TT class last season, and will be representing the official Kawasaki UK British Superbike team this season aboard the Quattro Plant Kawasaki.

Due to his Isle of Man experience, he was able to place the Ninja ZX-6R extremely close to the cameras, helping to create ideal content to help publicize Kawasaki’s revamped supersport.
