It’s as though time has stood still in what’s historically been the most hotly contested street category of all. The fact remains there has never been a more performance-capable selection of middleweight offerings as witnessed the past two model years, and the ZX-6R remains the cream of the crop, winning for the second year running.
Track-day patron? Backroad warrior? Mild-mannered motorcyclist with sporting aspiration? There’s no better way to ride out the current pause of perpetual performance gains and innovation that keep an enthusiast’s wheels turning. The Kawasaki ZX-6R is not merely a sportbike, it’s a well-balanced machine that ranks among the very best mid-displacement streetbikes ever conceived.
