2009 Kawasaki ZX-6R Review Street Test

A new-bike press introduction is kind of like a honeymoon. A nice hotel and an exotic location can't help but make your partner seem as sexy as possible.

Such as it was at the world press launch for Kawasaki's thoroughly updated ZX-6R. Riding the new Ninja around Japan's Autopolis circuit was like sex on wheels. It was difficult to find any fault with the ZX as we consummated the relationship at the fabulous race circuit.

But how would the '09 ZX-6R perform during the bumps and grind of street riding? And would major engine mods pay off once we strapped the Ninja to the dyno? Would the bloom fall off the rose?

The answers, in order, are: surprisingly well; yes; and no!
