At the end of 2002, Kawasaki installed a cheater 636 motor in the ZX-6R. The extra displacement was great for the majority of riders as they spent most of their time on the street and not on the track. But for the limited few that wanted to compete and had to stick under a 600cc displacement limit, the 599cc double R was the way to go.
2003 was the first year of the ZX-6RR, a package that would last through 2006. Homologation rules for AMA/FIM required a minimum production run of 1,000 units, and outside of the motor, the RR was quite similar to the single R with the exception of a slipper clutch, steering damper, and an accessory race kit. Despite the racier feel, the $8,399 ZX-6RR was $200 cheaper than Honda’s 600 repli-racer.
Most RR’s were destined for the track, as street riders were better off with the 636. This example has 2,976 miles, and the seller notes that it is up-to-date on services with some new-ish tires. The sale includes the passenger seat/pegs, owner’s manual, two keys, tool kit, and original tank decals.
