The 2024 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R boasts quite a few changes for riders who are familiar with previous models The 636cc inline four-cylinder engine benefits from revised cam profiles that both increase performance lower down in the rev range, as well as enhance emissions-lowering characteristics. Kawasaki has now added its updated Kawasaki Intelligent Anti-Lock Brake System, or KIBS for short. The system takes data provided by speed sensors at both ends of the bike, front brake caliper hydraulic pressure, and the engine control unit (ECU) to formulate how the ABS is applied.

On the dash, there’s a new 4.3-inch full-color TFT display. The 2024 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R also benefits from three integrated riding modes: Sport, Road, and Rain. Bluetooth connectivity is also standard, allowing riders to connect their smartphone to their bike via Kawasaki’s Rideology the App (that’s its full name in the iOS and Google Play stores; we didn’t make it up).

On the outside, Kawasaki revised the styling on the 2024 Ninja ZX-6R. A new front cowl, LED headlight and turn signal units, windscreen, and what it calls “3D interwoven bodywork” grab your attention as soon as you look in its direction.
