The ER-6n’s lighter handling and ergonomics also make it fun to The 649cc, liquid-cooled Parallel engine’s torquey character is for riding either in town or country roads. A quicker-revving adds to riding excitement and the linearity offers a level of that can easily be exploited for riding.

With the new ER-6n, renews its commitment to offer the enjoyment that motorcycling to the widest possible audience.

Quick-Revving Engine

The balance of size and good power by the original ER-6n was the key to its success. To fit its trim package, an In-line would have been too and a V-Twin too long. The only design that offered good power characteristics and the compactness was a Parallel Twin.

maintaining this balance, the new gets a number of tweaks offer smoother low-mid and a quicker-revving character.
