:headscratch where did "ninja" come from??whats the point of it?did they simply add that to "zx" because it made it sound more radical and would boost sales or what?

My only thoughts would be,because it's swift (fast) and silent (you never seen it coming).

I believe the Ninja name was given to the GPZ900R back in '84 and carried its way through on most if not all super sport class bikes. The ZX6R was introduced in '95 but still kept the Ninja title probably a marketing gimmac or maybe to remind us of the history. :headscratch

ninja is that thing between a girls legs when she pulls her pants/shorts up too high and it splits...... Oh wait..... that is "ninja toe" my bad!



I remember back in the day when Honda and Kawasaki had commercials against each other regarding thier respective bike names. Honda had the Hurricane and Kawi had Ninja. One of Honda's went something like "even the ninja has to hide from a Hurricane" and it showed this ninja crawling into a dark hole. Kawi had theirs, but I can't remember back that far.

You are right. I saw that commercial the other day on You Tube. I used to have an article somewhere that said what all the names mean, but you gotta figure, Hurricane, Ninja, Katana were all concieved in the mid to late 80's. that was cool shit then!
