Kawasaki ZX-6RR - 2005

Kawasaki ZX-6RR

Engine

Uprated, liquid-cooled, DOHC, 16-valve 599 cm3 In-Line Four engine delivers increased performance, especially in the higher rpm ranges. Polished intake ports, revised porting, new combustion chambers and larger exhaust valves all contribute to increased performance.

Transmission

To suit non-modified stock racing classes, the transmission features close ratios similar to those of the racing kit transmission.

Suspension

Inner fork tubes feature a TiSiCN coating to reduce sliding friction (stiction) and improve fork action. Revised damping valve for the rear shock offers a wider range of settings for racing.

Frame

Steering damper boss provided on the left frame rail.

Brakes

Low-expansion front brake hose improves brake feel.
