What’s the story?
Ben bought the ZX6R at the end of the 2011 season, as a previously unproven race bike. With Ohlins suspension and a mild amount of power added over standard, the bike should provide a solid platform from which to contest the 600cc championships.
However, several mechanical failure issues in 2012 hampered progress, leaving the 2012 season fruitless.
During the off season, the bike has undergone a suspension overhaul and some general TLC, and should hopefully be ready for the season ahead!
