A few days ago Kawasaki has announced that it will unveil you’re new next November 23rd. We have made some assumptions based on very little information and on the white spaces in the range left after the 2021 liveries of some models were shown such as Z900, Ninja 1000SX, Vulcan S and the series of twin cylinders 650 (Z, Ninja and Versys). It is certain that the new edition of the flagship super sports car ZX-10R will arrive, while in North America the images of the Versys 1000 e Z1400 for the next year.
To these was added the ZX-6R 2021, of which we were busy in July when in Japan had been presented there KRT Edition plus a new colorway for the standard ZX-6R.
These two models have been added to the list of 2021 Kawasaki for sale in the United States, so it is likely that they can also reach Europe.
The version KRT it is exactly the one launched in Japan and stands out from the current one for the different arrangement of colors and for a newly revised graphics: there is a greater presence of the colors white and red in the belly of the fairing, which for its part is black with a red piping that follows the profile and extends up to the tail. In green are the front fairing, the front fender and the steel sheet tank.
In addition to coloring pearl white / storm gray (Pearl Crystal White / Pearl Storm Gray), the ZX-6R adds the new two-tone Pearl Nightshade Teal / Metallic Spark Black. In the USA, the price difference compared to the 2020 versions is about 200 dollars.
Technically there are no news (but we would have the Euro 5 constraint …). The four-cylinder twin-shaft and 16-valve engine 636 cc it delivers 126 hp at 13,500 rpm (which rise to 132 with the air-box under pressure (in Europe the values rise to 130 and 136 horses declared again at 13,500 rpm); maximum torque is 7.1 kgm at 11,000 rpm.
