    Is that a Ninja or a ZX-6R? A long list of new and redesigned components including sharp new bodywork makes it a little more difficult to tell them apart. Previous Ninja s had lots to offer at a great price point and in our last comparison test of four affordable middleweight sportbikes , it pegged the friendly meter over the other three.

    But when compared to the other bikes in the test, its wow factor was less than stellar. Kawasaki reduced seat height by 0. For , the Ninja will continue to be an entry-level sportbike for new riders as well as one that bridges the gap between a small-displacement starter bike like the Ninja , and a more powerful race-bred middleweight like the ZX-6R.

    And it seems that Team Green took our critiques to heart when it came time for the redesign. Kawasaki has determined that 40 percent of Ninja buyers will be new to motorcycling, and the larger 60 percent will be experienced riders looking to replace an older, smaller bike. All-new trellis frame is high-tensile steel with minimized bends to increases rigidity and disperse stress. The frame itself weighs just 33 pounds. Kawasaki accomplished this by dropping the seat by 0. Handlebars are now slightly forward and lower than before allowing you to ride in a slightly more aggressive stance for a longer period of time.

    At 5-foot-9, I found the ergos to be a perfect fit; however, riders pushing six feet might want to look into the Ergo-Fit extended-reach seat from the accessory catalog which will provide an additional inch of comfort.

    The Ninja shares much of the same architecture as the recently unveiled Z naked bike including the all-new trellis frame and gull-arm swingarm, both of which contribute to a claimed pound weight reduction over the Ninja Team Green unleashes yet another Z-bike. Bodywork is closer fitting and with a narrower seat, ground reach is improved over the model.

    The new trellis frame replaces the heavier steel-tube perimeter frame of the outgoing ; the more rigid structure allows the use of smaller tube diameters with thinner walls that account for nearly 19 of the claimed pound weight reduction. The new gull-arm swingarm is a pressed-steel unit with a unique shape that sheds another 6. Even more weight is trimmed from the wheels a combined 3.

    The result is evident from the moment you pull out into traffic. The lighter weight and lower seat height makes the new Ninja a pleasure to manage in stop-and-go situations as you head out to more challenging roads. Surely a confidence-builder for even the newest of riders. New bodywork is closer fitting and more aggressive looking with an upswept tail and sharper upper cowl. Also new on the Ninja for is the Kawasaki Air Management System KAMS , a radiator fan duct that redirects hot air to the ground, aiding in keeping you cooler on hot days.

    Our test ride took place on an icy cold winter day right after some heavy rains. Not ideal for spirited riding and our planned route was changed at the last minute due to rock slides and unstable surfaces. On the throttle, the cc parallel twin provided what Kawasaki promised: Having to pass a few big rigs along the two-lane roads gave us a chance to grab a gear and really feel it pull through the rpm range.

    Although the basic engine is unchanged, the broad torque curve and smooth throttle response is the result of new cam and head design, new 36mm throttle bodies with slimmer intake ports and fine-atomizing injectors, and a new airbox designed for mid-range power that also emits a sweet intake sound at full twist. The new dash is now a negative-backlit gauge. Easier to read and just looks cool. New for is a three-position windscreen that is easily adjusted after removing four screws.
