- 2021 ZX-6R gets a new KRT edition.
- The driveline and ground remain unchanged.
- Expect the BS6 version to be launched in India next year.
Kawasaki has revealed in 2021 Ninja ZX-6R abroad. The brass motorcycle is given a new color alternative while the rest of the bike remains unchanged. Kawasaki had recently strongly revised some of its average capacity models as Ninja 650 and Z650. The updated motorcycle is expected to come to India next year in BS6 form.
The updates for 2021
The driving force also remains unchanged. It continues to be powered by a 636cc inline four-cylinder engine delivering 136PS and 70.8 Nm. It gets a 6-speed gearbox with a close relationship with the help of an auxiliary clutch. Riding aids include Kawasaki Traction Control (KTRC) with three positions, the power position selector and Kawasaki Intelligent Anti-Lock Braking System (KIBS) retained.

The support remains the same pressed aluminum perimeter frame with fully adjustable Showa SFF-BP forks and a fully adjustable bottom link Uni Trak gas-charged monoshock with piggyback tank. Braking is done via dual 310 mm petals with radially mounted monoblock caliper at the front and a 220 mm petal at the rear. It runs on Bridgestone Hypersport S22 radial tires.
We will not have the new life at any time as the bike is not BS6 compliant yet. However, we expect Kawasaki to launch BS6 Ninja ZX-6R in India sometime next year. It is expected to be priced around Rs 11 lakh (ex-showroom). The Kawasaki Ninja ZX6R may soon have a worthy opponent in the form of the all-new Triumph Daytona 765 as the latter is expected to launch here next year.
