On the dyno the ZX-6R produces 117 horsepower at 13500 rpm and 48 ft/lb of torque at 11500 rpm. It’s a very smooth and flexible engine that provides the most power of the sub 650 cc class of motorcycle.
Unlike many four cylinder Supersport class motorcycles the ZX-6R engine is very flexible and offers exceptional drive drive comparatively from as low as 4000 rpm but like all 600 Supersports it does like to rev, with the engine picking up thrust and acceleration really strong from 7000 rpm and then another purposeful kick at 9500 rpm where it drives strongly to 14000 plus rpm.
The engine is brilliant and offers 750 four cylinder performance while being faster than many 1000 CC Superbike twins from yester year.Kawasaki ZX-6R thrust curve

The Kawasaki ZX-6R is arguably the fastest accelerating Supersport 600 as stock and puts down faster times than many larger displacement motorcycles past and present though its closest rival today would be the YZF-R6.
With 117 horsepower and light weight, 0-60 mph can be achieved in 3.17 seconds and 0-100 km/h in 3.23 seconds.
From there on the ZX-6R charges extremely hard to achieve a 0-100 mph in only 6.02 seconds which is getting close to litrebike territory. 0-200 km/h is band on 9 second’s flat is going some too!
The Kawasaki ZX-6R can also comfortably get into the tens in the quarter mile sprint with a class leading 10.74 seconds and a high 134 mph terminal speed which shows how strong the ZX-6R’s top end is for a 600 Supersport.
The ZX-6R is really strong up to150 mph and can get there from a stop in 15.42 seconds. It is only after that point where the acceleration of the ZX-6R finally starts to relent as it ends up achieving a top speed of 164 mph which is an amazing top speed for a stock 600.
Dragy’s benchmark 60-130 mph time also incredibly competitive at only 6.60 seconds which is only around 1-2 seconds slower than the fastest litrebikes.
