Kawasaki 636 Ninja ZX-6R Racing Eligibility
Tuesday, October 16, 2012
Many are wondering if the new 636-powered ZX-6R as tested in the 2013 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R First Ride
will be eligible in any road racing series next season. Here’s the skinny: We contact the folks at WERA
and it has confirmed that the new bike will be allowed in its ‘C’ (600cc) as well as its ‘B’ (750cc) racing classes. As far as AMA Pro Road Racing is concerned, Technical Director Al Ludington revealed that as of this post, the new ZX-6R will NOT be allowed to compete in the Supersport or Daytona Sportbike classes. Now this could all change if the suits at Kawasaki reach out to the AMA and force the issue. Currently Team Green has no factory supported presence in that series and openly admits that it assembled the 636 for use on the street rather than racing.
