2013 ZX-6R 636

They couldn't really improve the 09-12 anymore (still at the top of the 600 shootouts)... so they added 37cc.


GENIUS!

My 09 is still in the shop basically with a blown engine at 20,000 miles. Hopefully this is more bullet proof.

I like it! Wish they'd bring back the kawi green with blue combo though. I guess that's what HofP is for!

I wonder if the dampener works any better on this model than the last iteration. It seems with all the electronic aids they would have gone with an electronic dampener like Honda.

The 2013 ZX-10R has electronic ohlins stabilizer

And I can bet that the stabilizer on the 636 won't be any better. They neuter them for liability reasons, get the race spec rebuild by John at P1 Racing and it will be just as effective as the $400+ ohlins race stabilizer
