Kawasaki ZX-6R on SPEED TV's Test Ride

Monday, May 18, 2009
2009 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R
The 2009 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R took the top prize in MotorcycleUSA's 2009 Supersport Shootout.
Tomorrow night, Tuesday May 19th, at 10:30 p.m. (EDT), SPEED TV will premier a new motorcycle show, Test Ride, featuring the Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R, a bike that’s won every major magazine “shootout” in 2009. Hosted by Jason Britton, Monster Energy/Kawasaki factory stunt rider and the irrepressible star of SPEED TV’s Super Bikes! show, this will be the first of 13 airings for this episode of Test Ride on Speed, throughout the remainder of 2009.

The half-hour show follows Britton and other high-profile Kawasaki riders such as Monster Energy/Kawasaki AMA road-racer, Jamie Hacking, eight-time AMA drag-racing champion, Rickey Gadson, and rising roadrace phenomenon Elena Myers, as the new Ninja ZX-6R is showcased in different riding scenarios to viscerally demonstrate the advanced engineering of the ’09 Ninja ZX-6R.

From a Southern California bike night and stunt show with Jason Britton and his “No Limit” stunt team, to the beautiful coastal scenery and amazing twisties near Big Sur California, to the awesome speed, power and agility of the Ninja ZX-6R at Barber Motorsports Park, this episode of Test Ride offers an appealing look at all facets of the sportbike lifestyle.

Jason Britton’s popularity with America’s sportbike fans, the credibility of Kawasaki’s professional racers, and a detailed look at the 600 supersport bike that raised the bar in its class, combine to make this a must-watch show for anyone who loves motorcycles.

Don’t forget to watch the Test Ride premier tomorrow night on Speed TV! Tuesday, May 19th, at 10:30 p.m. EDT (7:30 p.m. Pacific)

So, you didn't ride all the way to Carmel? You would've had to turn around at Bixby Creek in order to dine at Nepenthe...or splice the show together out of chronological order. How long did that film session take? With all those stops, it must've been quite a while. FYI: it takes me exactly 2 hours to get from the Chevron station in downtown Monterey to my front door in Cambria, on a BMW R1100RS. If you ever want a tour of some of the other great roads in this area, give me a honk as you pass through town. Peter Swanson Cambria, CA
