There are many differences... the bike you have was the ZX-6R in 99. Today it is called and sold as the ZZR-600. The ZX-6E is another bike... check out this page: zx6e.net - Model years, the comprehensive list.

The ZX-6R of 2003-2006 has a 636 engine.. I reiterate they're all very different bikes.

He actually made a mistake... the one in your picture is the 99 ZX6e... the one that is sold as the ZZR today is the 99 ZX6.

It will all make sense if you just take a bunch of pictures with labels on them... the 636 i think is what really throws off new comers.... its a random insert to the collection.

Your pic is very small, but I'm thinking this is what I'm seeing... if so, it is a ZX-6R. Headlight is different from the following year ZX-6Rs and the present ZZR-600, but it is still a ZX-6R. Here's a good pic I found.

If the bike in question is the one in your avatar, then it looks to me like a '99 ZX6R. Either way, what xeon and Jason said is correct - the best way to find out is by checking the VIN.

One of the bikes I bought this year was advertised as an '03 ZX6RR on Craigslist. It looks just like a ZX6R 636, and even has the ZX6R stickers on the side, so I thought either the guy typo'd or just didn't know what he was talking about. It wasn't until I plugged in the VIN to get insurance that it was confirmed that it indeed is a ZX6RR. I didn't care either way, as both bikes have something more to offer over the other, but are similar enough that I got the kind of bike I wanted.

Looks just like my old ride. Makes me miss her all over again.
