Always comes out pretty much on top when reviewed by Magazines and suchlike, but apart from its good looks there is a darker side to the ZX. Biggest problem that i have found; is handling can be more track suited than for the roads. This bike is clearly for someone who is not scared to use and abuse the machine - forcing it to every inch of its capabilities; the ZX laps it all up like a cat does its milk. A bit more unforgiving than perhaps the Honda CBR, or Suzuki GSXR, but after all, you only have a ZX6R if you know how to use one. Slight scare with oil pressure after an oil change sometimes, an air lock can form in the crankcase, causing the oil light not to go off, and an awful sounding engine, but a quick drain and refil will normally rectify this problem. overall.. a lovely bike, engine power very strong at top end, plenty of room to sit, and a good tank range if not abused too much - just watch out for the quick steering if you go too slow!
