Arrow 2003 ZX6E to be released as ZZR600!

That's right...........Straight from inside sources at KAWASAKI earlier today.

The US & CANADIAN models were the ONLY models to use the ZX6E model name 'til 2003. ALL models worldwide will carry the ZZR600 model plate from now on.

Hehe, the ZZR600 has been on the Kawasaki website for over a month now. I was a bit scared when the ZX6 left the Ninja/Sportbike section, but the ZZR600 appeared in the Streetbikes section... I guess since it's not a "Ninja" anymore. Oh well... it'll always be a Ninja in my mind.

Thanks for the news regardless.

Oyster..........It is still considered a NINJA.

Matter of fact..........The site lists it as Ninja ZZR600. BTW.......Info I may get will not appear upon the pages you read.

But anyway.........The ZX6 ST line is no more. R.I.P. ZX6E (1-10)!

I was just saying they moved it out of the Ninja Section. So, by the websites opinion, it's just a streetbike and not a Ninja. I realize they SAY it's a Ninja, but I believe it's the first year for the US that the bike doesn't have Ninja on it anywhere. So, according to Kawasaki, it's a Ninja, but not....

So... what info do you have that I don't already have? If you're in the know of everything Kawasaki is doing, please let us know! We're all Kawasaki brothers here...

The "ZedEx 6" will live on! Mine comes to life every morning... and for an old chap, it sure is impressive!

Thank goodness I live in Washington State.... where we're not required to carry insurance on bikes. Sometimes it's worth living thru the cold months.

Sbninja..........

Actually, the ZZR600 is an "E".........Just changed the name plate to freshen it up.

If I recall correctly...........The 2003 ZZR600 is listed on the BuyKawasaki web site & micro fiche as ZZR600 / ZX6E-10(11)

Late!
