2013 Kawasaki ZX-6R Sportbike

Following a absence, Kawasaki returns the 636 version of the ZX-6R, the 599cc four getting a bump to 636cc.

Kawasaki unveiled the Thursday during its “Ninja Square Takeover” event, also showcased the all-new 300 that replaces last 250R.

The long-… 636 is designed for performance throughout the powerband, a more optimal sportbike on the Kawasaki says “low-mid torque is significantly stronger and the total ‘area under the curve’ grows substantially compared to the previous 600cc

The 2013 Ninja ZX-6R, is available with optional ABS for over the $11,699 base features a totally revamped The 636 is loaded with new features, new intake- and exhaust-port shapes for throttle performance, lightweight steel intake and exhaust revised piston crowns, and 1.5mm connecting rods.

The is also larger than ZX-6R models, the new box featuring percent more internal allowing for both “increased and a smoother power delivery.” enhancements were also into the 2013 Ninja intake system.

Kawasaki “new longer single-bore funnels contribute to low-mid torque and feature unique for the inner and outer cylinder to help enhance the engine’s Ultra-fine atomizing injectors a sub-60 micron fuel size, for more effective mixing and maximum combustion Those new injectors are also of delivering a greater total of fuel to accommodate the demands of the engine.

More precise Fuel Injection (DFI) also enhances throttle and contributes to reduced emissions.

result is that 636cc not only delivers class-leading out of corners, it also offers flexibility and precise throttle that pays big dividends making mid-corner power or stringing a set of curves together on a or twisting backroad.”

The Ninja arrives with a new F.C.C. that features assist and functions for effortless downshifts. says the “new F.C.C. uses two types of cams, an cam and a slipper cam that were based on racetrack testing and feedback. The ‘assist’ cam acts a servo mechanism to pull the hub and operating plate together and the clutch plates under

This allows the total spring count and tension to be resulting in a 20% overall reduction in at the clutch lever. The assist cam increases the clutch’s maximum capacity, to help it cope the extra power from the new engine, without gaining any Whenever back-torque is present, the ‘slipper’ cam reduces clamping on the hub and operating plate to help rear wheel hop on trailing-throttle and down-shifting. A new spring plate offers smoother engagement and minimize vibration and clutch and a new aluminum clutch hub is 600-grams than the previous steel

The transmission is a cassette type simplifies gearing changes at the and features a shorter first and more strength throughout to for the 636′s extra torque.

The ZX-6R features a three-mode Traction Control (KTRC) to the one found on the hypersport ZX-14R. 1 and 2 offer maximum acceleration. says operating parameters are and confirmed 200 times per second, and the only uses ignition to regulate the engine’s power allowing extremely quick

The third mode is similar to the of Kawasaki’s flagship sport – the Concours 14. During normal it uses the same logic and method as Modes 1-and-2, but switches to three-way intervention ignition timing, fuel and the intake tract’s sub-throttles- if rear wheel spin is This allows Mode 3 to engine output all the way down to a that will allow the wheel to regain grip, on very slippery surfaces.

says “this highly system uses minimal paired with very software programming that various parameters and rider Aside from software, the hardware required by the KTRC is use of the ABS system’s front and rear sensors, yet the overall effects of 1, 2 and 3 are easy to distinguish from other and effectively cover a range of riding conditions.”

KTRC and the power mode eight separate combinations are satisfying the needs of various and track situations.

Along the KTRC and power modes other electronics, such as the Kawasaki Intelligent anti-lock System (KIBS). Kawasaki the “use of ‘intelligent’ is appropriate, just how smart KIBS is. It all with a compact and lightweight ABS unit, one Bosch designed with sportbikes in mind.

is a multi-sensing system that and monitors a wide range of from wheel speed (the same ones info for the KTRC traction system) and the bike’s ECU. The parameters include: wheel brake caliper pressure, rpm, throttle position, actuation and what gear is selected. The KIBS ABS ECU communicates the engine’s ECU and crunches the numbers, and it senses a potential lock-up it tells the ABS unit to temporarily brake line pressure, the wheel to regain traction.

from an ultra-fast response it also offers a number of sport-riding benefits, including lift suppression during braking, reduced lever during ABS intervention, and enhanced brake control during A high-precision pressure control enables the system to avoid brake performance (unlike less advanced systems) and proper lever feel.”

The were also upgraded, the Ninja ZX-6R featuring radial-mounted Nissin brake which are 45 grams lighter a two-piece caliper. Stopping up arrives from dual petal-type rotors, and a single petal-type rotor out back. also relocated the rear cylinder reservoir mounts, are pushed forward on the swingarm for addition space around the

The 2013 Kawasaki Ninja features an all-new Showa Big Function Fork (BP-SFF) up which features springs on sides, with adjustable preload in the left tube and Big Piston compression and rebound in the right tube. The tubes designed 3mm thinner, helping to 220 grams of weight.

Kawasaki “the new BP-SFF fork is for use on twisty roads. This still allows a high of performance at the racetrack, with better response in the city and on the The BP-SFF offers much adjustability, with all spring setting and damper adjustments to separate fork legs: the preload adjuster is on the left the compression and rebound damping are on the right fork. All adjusters are on the upper fork caps and accessed from above.”

Out the 2013 ZX-6R features a Uni-Trak rear suspension a 25. longer shock spring features a lower rate, and linkage for improved riding in the or the highway. Rear shock includes spring preload, rebound damping and stepless damping.

Speaking of the frame, Kawasaki “the lightweight twin-spar frame places the engine in the position for superb handling and feedback. It features a new steeper rake angle that quicken steering response, maneuverability and promote clear from the front tire. It uses new steering stem that produce less for easier steering inputs and improved handling at low speeds.”

The Kawasaki ZX-6R also more aggressive bodywork, LED hugger rear fender, optimal ergonomics and fuel-tank a revised instrument panel analog-style tachometer and multi-function LCD with shift indicator, control levels and low-fueling and revised mirrors for better

at low- rpm is the same in both but “Low” mode limits output to approximately 80% and gives a throttle response. “Hi” allows the full performance of the engine to be unleashed

NEW Three-Mode Traction Control (KTRC):

New KTRC traction control the best elements of the Ninja S-KTRC and ZX-14R/Concours14 KTRC

Three different modes are to cover a wide-range of situations advanced racetrack use, to street riding, to mixed/slippery for enhanced rider confidence

1 is tuned to maximize acceleration, the ZX-10R S-KTRC system

2 is tuned to help provide a of performance with minimal slip

Mode 3 prioritizes elimination, similar to the Concours14 ABS touring KTRC system, for rider confidence in mixed or conditions

The KTRC system may be turned-off completely, at the rider’s

Handy mode selector on the clip-on makes it easy for the to change KTRC settings

complex programming algorithms, the system is able to predict wheelspin and act before slippage the optimum range, allowing in power to be minimized for ultra-smooth

In modes 1 and 2, conditions are analyzed 200 per second and any necessary adjustments are through ignition timing for extremely quick response the engine and KTRC system

In 3, the system functions like 2 under most conditions, but excessive rear wheel is detected, Mode 3 switches to three-way control of ignition fuel delivery and intake to regulate engine output to a that allows the rear to regain grip. By controlling the in the intake tract for precise management, a smooth and natural can be attained: Mode 3 intervention and transitions are very smooth to maintain stability during operation

The system uses hardware supplemented by advanced In addition to the engine’s ECU, the only requires input front and rear wheel-speed so no additional weight is required on the ABS because it already has wheel-speed

NEW F.C.C. Clutch with and Slipper Functions:

New F.C.C. with assist slipper uses two types of cams, an cam and a slipper cam that were based on racetrack testing and feedback

The F.C.C. clutch’s cam acts like a self-servo pulling the clutch hub and operating together to compress the clutch under load. This the total clutch spring and pressure to be reduced, resulting in a 20% in effort at the clutch lever

The cam also increases the torque of the clutch so it can cope with the torque produced by the new 636cc without gaining any weight

The clutch’s “slipper” cam reduces the force on the clutch hub and operating when back-torque conditions are and helps prevent rear hop on trailing-throttle and when down-shifting

New plate assembly provides engagement and helps minimize judder

New aluminum clutch hub is lighter than the previous unit

NEW Supersport-grade KIBS ABS Monobloc Nissin Calipers:

is a multi-sensing system, using from numerous sources. In to front and rear wheel sensors (standard for any ABS system), also monitors front hydraulic pressure and data the engine’s ECU (throttle position, speed, clutch actuation and position)

Compact, lightweight ABS unit was designed specifically for use and made its first mass-production on the 2011 Ninja ZX-10R

brake pressure control the system to avoid a reduction in performance due to excessive pressure and allows good brake feel to be maintained during intervention by providing smaller and ABS pulses than comparable

Supersport models frequently higher braking forces less sporting models, so is a greater likelihood of rear lift under extreme By monitoring hydraulic pressure at the calipers, KIBS is able to pressure increases and help the tendency of the rear tire to

By accounting for back-torque, KIBS is to offer increased rear control during downshifts. parameters include throttle clutch actuation and gear allowing the system to predict caused by trailing-throttle at high-rpm, or Rear wheel slip due to braking often triggers ABS on standard systems, but by preventing ABS intervention in these situations, helps enhance rear control

Thanks to the compact and light weight of the ABS unit, the system adds only 4.4 compared to non-ABS models

New rigid, radial-mount “monobloc” brake calipers offer control and a firmer feel at the brake lever. They are a of 90-grams lighter and offer heat dissipation compared to the model

New larger-diameter semi-floating stainless-steel petal-type front contribute to stronger braking

Rear master cylinder reservoir is forward of the swingarm pivot, to space around the footpeg

NEW Big Piston – Separate Function (BP-SFF):

New BP-SFF fork the features of Showa’s big piston and function forks, featuring on both sides, with preload adjustability in the left and dedicated damping pistons and in the right tube

New .3mm fork tube walls a 220-gram weight reduction

Big design provides smooth during the initial part of the and contributes to excellent feel heavy braking. The large-diameter piston is much bigger those used in traditional forks

Big Piston design the fork oil to act on a much larger area, so the damping pressure can be without compromising effectiveness. the damping pressure allows the to react more smoothly, is especially noticeable during the part of the …. The result is control as the fork begins to and very calm response braking-induced weight-transfer, for greater stability on corner entry

settings were tuned for effectiveness on twisty roads, a high level of performance for the with a much better in the city and on the highway

BP-SFF offers much easier by locating all adjusters in the caps at the top of the two tubes: preload on the left; and rebound damping on the right.
