This computer-generated image shows how Kawasaki engineers altered the new ZX-6R's chassis rigidity for improved rider feedback. The gold-colored front portion shows how the upper engine mounts are now connected directly to the steering head, increasing rigidity in that area. The blue sections represent the larger pressed beam sections that actually provide more lateral flex for better feedback when leaned over. The green portion shows the rear engine mounts that are now part of a one-piece cast component for more rigidity over the previous tabs welded onto an aluminum pipe.
