Kawasaki ZX-6RR - 2005
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.
To suit non-modified stock racing classes, the transmission features close ratios similar to those of the racing kit transmission.
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.
Steering damper boss provided on the left frame rail.
Low-expansion front brake hose improves brake feel.
