2013 Kawasaki Z800 - 2013 Kawasaki ZX6R - September 11, 2012, 01:10 PM

via a&r

Multiple Kawasaki models are expected to be unveiled in New York tomorrow, and chiefly for the American market we are expecting the 2013 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R & the 2013 Kawasaki Ninja 300 to officially break cover in Times Square.

This of course hasn’t stopped the bikes from “unofficially” breaking cover well before that date, as an EPA document (now edited to omit the models) first outed their existence, as well as numerous other leaks breaking loose as the event unveiling event looms closer — almost as if the leaks were designed to help create buzz around the new machines, hmm…

Our latest viewing of the new Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R & Kawasaki Z800 motorcycles comes to us from a video, which employs one of the most frustrating audio tracks ever to grace a motorcycle industry YouTube clip.

Presumably employed to stop us from hearing the new ZX-6R and Z800 rev to life, the music sounds like one of those canned audio tracks for slideshows about kittens playing in cardboard boxes. Nevertheless, it does give us a pretty good glimpse at the bikes in question. Beggers can’t be choosers, right?

Who is this man in the video? Why is he seemingly in a large warehouse? How many Pokemon has he collected? Will the Kawasaki Z800 come to America? Damn it Kawasaki! We want answers! Until tomorrow…

From what I'm hearing it's a 636cc ZX-6R - one bike

Not so. CCS allows up 640cc and WERA 650cc for their middleweight class 4-cylinders. Probably the same allowances in other orgs.

There you go

Thanks for clearing that up Travis.

The detractors reasoning was along the lines of:
"Not a true 600cc-class machine, Kawasaki will have a hard time racing the ZX-6R in any proper supersport class here in the United States, though we doubt it would be hard for Team Green to get the bike homologated for AMA Pro Racing’s Daytona SportBike class mash-up, but that’s not saying much."

Maybe unveiling a 636 ZX6R tomorrow doesn't sound so crazy after all. I doubt a new ZX6 would be Europe only.

The new Z800, however, may not see stateside...

I guess since Superglue is bound to win the WorldSS on the last 600cc Ninja, they will pull out of it next year? Maybe bump Superglue back to Superbikes?

Or are they going to have a limited 600cc race model just for racing as in they did in the past?
