The 2010 ZX-6R Ninja is a middleweight 600 class sport bike from Japanese manufacturer Kawasaki. The Ninja series, identified by "ZX" has been in production since the 1980s, while the 6R was introduced in 1995.

Rear Suspension

Rear suspension of the Ninja is handled by a bottom-link UNI-TRAK gas-charged shock with 25-way rebound damping (adjustable), dual-range high- and -low speed stepless compression damping, and fully adjustable spring preload.

Rear Suspension Travel

The rear suspension on the 2010 ZX-6R Ninja travels 5.3 inches.

Rear Suspension Changes

This rear suspension set up has been used on the ZX-6R since 2007. In 2007, Kawasaki redesigned many aspects of the bike and subsequent builds share few parts with pre-2007 models.

Front Suspension

At the front is an inverted Showa Big Piston Fork with top-out springs (1.6 inches / 41mm); and as with the rear, the front is equiped with stepless compression and rebound damping, and fully adjustable spring preload.

Front Travel

The front suspension has a travel of 4.7 inches.

Front Suspension Changes

The 2010 (and 2009) ZX-6R Ninja bikes differ from previous years with the addition of the Showa Big Piston Fork, giving an improved brake-drive.
