Kawasaki has opened pre-bookings for the ZX-6R SuperSport for a token amount of Rs 1.50 lakh. However, the bookings will only be open till November 30, 2018. The 2020 ZX-6R will be brought here via the CKD route, just like its bigger brother - the Ninja ZX-10R.


The Ninja ZX-6R is one of the oldest nameplates in Kawasaki’s lineup. First introduced in 1995, the firm has been tinkering with its design and engine ever since to fend off competition from other Japanese motorcycle manufacturers. However, the upgrades on the MY’20 model are mostly subtle in nature.


While the overall silhouette remains pretty similar to the previous iteration, the 2020 ZX-6R gets a new front cowl and a revised tail section. Its twin headlamps now feature a slightly revised design with LED lamps. Even the tail light gets the same treatment. Other subtle updates include a new windscreen while the exhaust receives a new finish, which looks rather neat. Track enthusiasts will be happy to note that the new bike gets a shorter seat height. The seat is also narrower at the front, allowing shorter riders to place their feet on the ground easily. Other updates include a new heel guard and an adjustable brake lever.


Powering the motorcycle is the same 636cc, in-line 4-cylinder engine as before. It now produces 129.7PS of power at 13,500rpm, which is a drop of 1.3PS over the last-gen model. This has been done in favour of cleaner emissions. The instrument console has also been updated and now features a fuel gauge as well as fuel range and eco indicator. Other functions like the quick shifter, ABS and traction control have been carried over from the last-gen bike. The 2020 ZX-6R gets new Bridgestone Battlax Hypersport S22 tyres instead of the S20s seen on the older bike.
