  • The Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R is now priced at Rs 11.09 lakh (ex-showroom, India), and is offered in two colour options. 
  • The new Ninja ZX-6R has received a redesigned front end with new LED headlamps and a new 4.3-inch TFT instrument console.
  • The inline-four 636cc engine of the Ninja ZX-6R is now BS6 stage-II compliant, while still claiming 129 PS of maximum power and 69 Nm of maximum torque. 


Kawasaki started 2024 with a bang by launching the updated Ninja ZX-6R middleweight supersport motorcycle after a gap of nearly four years. Making a comeback with a BS6 stage-II compliant engine, the new Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R also gets a revised front end, a new full-TFT instrument console and a couple of other minor changes. 

Launched in two colours – Metallic Graphite Grey with Metallic Diablo Black and Lime Green with Ebony, the new Ninja ZX-6R is priced at Rs 11.09 lakh (ex-showroom, India). Here are all the details regarding the tubeless radial tyres, design changes, feature additions and mechanicals offered in the new Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R: 

Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R: Tyres & Wheels

Like most of the middleweight sports bikes in the market, the Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R also comes with 17-inch alloy wheels wrapped with a 120/70 ZR17 tyre at the front and a 180/55 ZR17 tyre at the rear. The tyres featured in the Ninja ZX-6R as standard are Pirelli Diablo Rosso IV, the fourth-generation version of the revered Pirelli Diablo Rosso tyres for sports bikes.

The Pirelli Diablo Rosso IV for Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R has lower ply chords end-count for more space for rubber, which enhances riding feeling and reduces tyre noises while riding. This Pirelli tyre also has a reduced void/fill ratio for the mid-lean area for a higher footprint area and better stress distribution for mid-lean grips. The new front profile with reduced curvature on the shoulders results in a wider contact patch in full lean riding conditions, eventually resulting in quicker handlebar responses while cornering.

The Pirelli Diablo Rosso IV also has a flash tread pattern design, which increases stability levels on wetter surfaces at higher speeds. While the cap and base multi-compound layout helps in quicker warming, the full silica compound further increases performance on both wet and dry roads.
