We study a new integrable KdV6 equation from the point of view of its exact solutions by using an improved computational method. A new approach to the projective Riccati equations method is implemented and used to construct traveling wave solutions for a new integrable system, which is equivalent to KdV6 equation. Periodic and soliton solutions are formally derived. Finally, some conclusions are given.
