2013 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R Preview
 
Making its worldwide debut as part of Kawasaki's "Times Square Takeover" event in the heart of New York City, Team Green officially unveiled the 2013 Ninja ZX-6R, which gets a bump back to 636cc after a six-year absence. While this move is sure to shake up the 600cc supersport racing class, especially as a race-homologated, 600cc ZX-6RR version won't be available this time around, the larger displacement and subsequent torque bump will make the Ninja a more capable street machine and track weapon. In addition, Kawasaki set out to make the new ZX-6R the most technologically advanced Ninja ever.

Those interested in racing a middleweight Kawasaki will still be able to purchase remaining 2012 stock, but once they're gone, you'll either have to race the 636 against bigger bikes or turn to other brands. Kawasaki reps weren't able to provide an official answer as to the future of the 600cc variant, leaving us to speculate the door might still be open for a contender that's legal in racing circles.

Maybe just in this market? I haven't really been paying attention. Have they not released a 599cc bike in Europe or elsewhere for homologation?
