EDSBK is a blog about a small group of sports bike riders, the places we go in search of our ultimate road and the motorbikes we ride..

..Welcome to Everyday Superbikes

Kawasaki ZX636 Ninja




 This is Rich's Kawasaki ZX6R.  This the 2003 model has the slightly bigger 636cc engine than the previous version of the ZX6r. The engine sounds great, its sporty with the noise from the ram air intake and gives a good midrange and top end, offering speeds of up to 163MPH. If ridden with less gusto then fuel from the 18 litre tank can last into the 40-50 MPG range, however the manufactures figures of an average 39MPG is a reasonable figure to live with.
 Looks wise the 2002-2003 model pictured dosen't look out of place with the newer machines when parked on a Sunday morning at the cafe carpark with its pleasant paint scheme.



Controls
The Instruments are of the Analogue type, having a speedometer, rev counter and temperature gauge in a nicely layed out dash. On the speedo is an odometer and a trip gauge and the usual lights for indicators and neutral. The bars are positioned quite low and the pegs quite high giving an aggressive riders position but feels roomy. The seat is comfortable enough for touring and the rear seat can come off to allow access into a small storage space or be swapped for a seat cowl. There is room under the seat for the tool kit a chocolate bar to eat and a drink. There is twin headlights on the ZX636 that can be switched on or off.

 Riding it
 As it has a 636cc engine you would not expect it to keep us with the 1000cc sports bikes on the track, but on the road it can hold its own, though you have to give it a lot more throttle and drop a gear more often than when on the bigger bikes.
