2016 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R

For 2016, the 636cc Ninja ZX-6R can be had with ABS, special KTR graphics. Back is three-mode KTRC traction control, selectable engine power modes, the Showa Big Piston Separate Function Fork (BP-SFF).

Kawasaki’s high-end ABS adds $1000 to the price, with $300 needed to upgrade to the KRT editions. Power is nice and smooth down low, revving out to a satisfying top-end push.
