The 636 is back!

Technically not a 600

but you know, once a cheater always a cheat. Fantastic looking bike nevertheless!

Definitely looks nice. I don't ever plan on investing in one, but I'd love to take a test ride just for kicks

I was a huge fan of the zx6r until they got rid of the undertail exhaust, with that said this is a very nice looking bike and if one was financially within my means I woul have a hard time turning it down...

Man, I'm nervous for what Honda will release. Yamaha has confirmed that the R6 will only see new colors next year. WTF!? I know the market is bad but do these major companies really think keeping a bike unchanged since 07 will draw in more new customers?

Agree, if Honda doesnt put anything new out this year this kawi will be ages above everything else on the market. the GSXR is a great bike after the 2011 revisions as well but Honda and Yamaha are loosing their foot hold. Its to bad because until 09 the CBR was by far the best of the middleweight class in my opinion.

With the suspension upgrades on both front forks and rear shock, rake angle adjustments, larger motor, monoblock breaks, ABS standard, Traction control, slipper clutch with pull assist, and the new body work I dont see any other middle weight bike even contending anymore.

Lets just hope honda steps there game up!

Agree completely. My first bike was a black 06 636. This new one is better than the last generation but still can't stand the front end.

I'm not digging that gold with the green. Now get me a yellow version and do something with the exhaust and I would seriously consider. I still have faith that Honda will come through eventually. They can't do the same thing forever.

not bad.. but the 05-06 zx6r is still better looking IMO... its more curvy less sharp and pointy..

Kawi's released a promo vid made on the Isle of Mann TT track and it's very well done. Not a huge fan of Kawi's bikes' looks, but they got this commercial right and this bike looks to have all the tech to make it a class winner. TC, ABS, power modes, slipper...

I thought the 600 was no slouch on power. I'm a bit surprised they felt the need to bump back up to the 636. Nice bike though.

As much as I love my CBR600RR I am very tempted to buy one of these next year. With this specification list (http://management.kawasaki.eu/PDF/_d...ja+ZX%2D6R+636) and in my opinion great looks this bike is going to be awesome on both road and track.
