Our friends at Dutch site Oliepeil have scooped this first official image of the much-leaked 2013 Kawasaki ZX-6R. In addition to the 636cc capacity and 129bhp power figure outed by the EPA, Oliepeil reports the bike will also come with traction control, making it the first widely-available "600" to receive the performance-enhancing electronic rider aid.

Update: Kawasaki has officially confirmed TC, as well as an assist/slipper clutch, revised rear suspension tuning and BPF forks that separate compression and rebound damping into individual legs. $11,699 without ABS, $12,699 with ABS.

Update 2: now with a full gallery of high-res images.

Galleries remain a little tricky as the site undergoes changes. If you can't click in below, try this link: http://hellforleathermagazine.com/2012/09/2013-kawasaki-zx-6r-first-official-image-tc/?gal=1#/4
