Tried on the road and on circuit, the new Kawasaki ZX – 6R 636 has shown its full potential. Here are the answers of Bertrand Gold who tried the bike to MR.
The full article is also found in the MR n ° 3941.
The new 636 is presented as a rather versatile motorcycle.
She m interested to use daily, track and road rally.
Think you after your trial it is possible?
M.R.: Must be able to find more versatile in the trade… Joking aside, it is true that being rather available since the substantial and relatively comfortable, the 636 can become the daily companion. For the track and the rally so there, I say bingo! There are just meet her buttocks and gas!
Hello just wondering the question of the real differences with the previous model because we reach a level or the motorcycle are already so advanced that we can ask the question.
M.R.: Actually, the 636 landed not by pretending to revolutionize category. However, with small improvements (new fork, new seetings, new brakes, new geometry, increased displacement etc…) and especially by adopting a traction control electronic’s series as well as an ABS (optional), it offers a little more.
I wanted to know when the video of the test? What is the best compromise between the ZX – 6R 636 and the GSXR 750 knowing that sometimes I carry a passenger? Have enough torque to be able to carry a passenger without playing too much with the gearbox?
M.R.: This time, no video of the trial… sorry. By reviewing your questions well, I imagine that the GSXR 750 will agree you better. If question ergonomics and comfort you will them enjoy as much one than the other, the duo is, to my taste better aboard the Suzuki. And then there is not to turn around the barrel for hours to determine which powder the most on the bottom and substantial: the 750 obviously.
There are t he really a felt torque compared to the fact that it is a 636 and either a 600?
Is the unblocking even if it is not allowed in France (except for the track) simple to do?
M.R.: Displacement increased and the work done on the distribution will in this sense, of course. Now, because of the mechanical clamping (limitation of opening of the gas using a wedge on the ramp for admission), ago bet version 100 horses, the gain is clearly perceptible.
