UPDATE: The folks at TMCBlog seem to have some screen grabs from a walk-around video with the new ZX-6R. More photos attached after the jump.

Kawasaki only has a few more days until its big launch in New York City’s Times Square, so depending on how you look at it, Team Green has only a few more days to keep its new bikes under wraps, or Team Green has only a few more days to leak out hype-building photos of its new bikes. We’ll let you make the call on that issue, but today’s big Kawasaki news is a leaked photo of what appears to be the 2013 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R.

Expected to be a 636cc machine, something the brand experimented with circa 2003, the Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R seen here is drawing heavily from the ZX-10R’s aesthetic, as has been the case with the redesigned Kawasaki Ninja 250R as well. We will have to wait until Wednesday for the official details of the ZX-6R to drop, but expect the new supersport Ninja to have 129 peak horsepower for the American market and optional ABS brakes.
