I was wondering the same thing. I think the ZX6RR designates a certain year (2006?).

Nice bike by the way, I have the same thing.

when the zx-6rr was out it was a 599 cc engine and the zx-6r was a 636
The zx6r @ the time had a 636cc engine and was outlawed from supersport competition, so the made a racier version with a 599cc engine to qualify for competiton. However, they stopped using the 636 engine when the 2007 zx6r came out, so there hasnt been a zx6rr since

He didn't say a Ninja 650R. He said a ZX6RR whose engine is no longer 599ccs, but rather 650cc.

650cc is a racing class. It's where the break in class comes. 500cc-650cc-750cc. The point is the 2006 Kawasaki ZX-6rr is the fastest in the world in the 650cc class on engine. 190.118 mph. The rr was the perfect platform to work from.

Not 650, but 636.

I went to the Kawi dealer in Loveland this past Friday to pick up a filter for my RR... they were still thinking that one of their guys has the land speed record in the 650cc class. I didn't realize you beat the record by that much. Awesome job sir!!

Thanks. Tell those guys the Throttle Nation Top Speed Challenge is in Maxton, NC September 24-25. We are out to defend our title for the 3rd year in a row and looking to break the 1 mile World Record for the class. That mark is 184.161 mph. Yes it is our record, but we want to move it up. We went 183 in June at Maxton.
