2005 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R

2005 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R
MSRP $7,999

Just like in 2003 when the ZX-6R brought radial-mount brakes and an inverted fork to the middleweight class, Kawasaki continues to deliver the trick stuff, becoming the first to offer an exhaust powervalve and a slipper clutch among its peers. Kudos to Team Green for creating a stylish set of clothes that don’t require flashy decals to make it look exciting.
