2015 Kawasaki ZX-6R 30th Anniversary Edition
Kawasaki’s Ninja models debuted in America when the Ninja 900 first hit the scene in 1984. The Ninja name would spread to other sportbike designs in the Japanese manufacturer’s lineup, from the entry-level Ninja 250 up to the massive ZX-14. In the 600 Supersport ranks Kawasaki introduced the ZX-6R in 1995 and has kept the model in production ever since, at various displacements from 599cc to its current 636cc form. Kawasaki also introduced the ZX-10R in 2004 to compete in the Superbike ranks.

Actually, Kawasaki's first Ninja motorcycle was the legendary 1984 908cc Ninja, also known as the GPZ-900 in Europe. The 1984 900 Ninja is almost universally acknowledged as the first true "Superbike". How the author could not have known this, escapes me. The smaller 600 Ninja (598cc), however, did indeed first appear in 1985. I actually own both bikes and love everything about them, except for their habit of quickly overheating in slow traffic.

This color scheme looks sick and probably better in person. I don't understand why are still using the "three-spoke" wheels on the 10R though.

The green is good for a KX dirt bike, but I wouldn't want it for the street.
