(Editor’s Wayne’s time with the coincided perfectly with the of wildfires into the countryside L.A. Unfortunately this actual riding time the bike thereby resulting in an article. We will be working on a to get more seat time on a ER-6n this coming


For many years, fighters have always to me not only because of their … looks (or what I to as a bike with a G-String), but the fact that they can be aggressively just like typical GSXR or CBR but are generally comfortable. When I was told I would be reviewing the new Kawasaki , I started thinking about kind of trouble I could get

The bike was waiting for me at the front of headquarters in Irvine, CA. when I to pick it up. The ER-6n is certainly a with its sleak yet agressive Couple that with the Plasma Blue color our bike came in and it turned everywhere it went.

The front flashers are neatly into the side of the upper so you won’t have to convert the ugly stock ones typically come with types of bikes. Its trick exhaust and unique offset shock are just a few more reasons to like the Kawasaki .

The ER-6n’s 29.7 inch height allowed me to plant my comfortably on the ground while the reach to the handlebars placed my in a near upright position. the mirrors were difficult to to any great extent without the use of I also found that the seemed to have been a little too close together you to beep the horn when you to use the turn signals.

The last issue I had was that, while the of the dash panel looked I struggled to view the tiny numbers on the analog speedometer On the other hand, I really the digital tachometer and fully fuel gauge and who really about how fast you’re anyway, right?

As I started the fuel injected liquid cooled parallel engine, the under-body exhaust and of the camshaft gears was like to my ears; let the fun begin…..I hope. I wasn’t sure what to from the parallel twin but I was quickly impressed.

The ER-6n has and responsive low to mid range torque allowed me to go barreling up the I-5 North at oh let’s just say faster the speed limit by quite a bit plenty of twist left in the The bike was extremely stable and well into triple speeds (at least I imagine it be if I were inclined to do such acts).

The 6 speed gearbox was a bit notchy but did its job under aggressive riding; was easy to find and the manual acted more like a unit as it had a soft pull and was responsive. Don’t let looks you! I was expecting a strong when I squeezed the front lever since the ER-6n has 300mm petal rotors 2 piston calipers. Imagine my then when the lever had a faded feel…..hmm.

Mounted on the is a single 220mm petal with a single piston which is modulated very like the front brakes. maybe Kawasaki modulates the more towards keeping a rider in the seat than maximum bite but a little grab would be nice. The will stop you quickly; don’t expect a high of feel and feedback while on the

For a bike that weighs the ER-6n responded quite as I maneuvered in and out of traffic and the usual hazards of L.A. It is extremely to ride and never compromised my even under aggressive The 650cc parallel twin was and surprisingly responsive.

It has a nice combination of v-twin torque and the top end performance of an inline which comes in handy for canyon and urban riding. economy is about what I and was able to squeeze about 110 before the fuel light on which averages to about under above normal conditions.

I went on a 250 mile through Castaic and back the Malibu canyons to see what the is made of. The bike performed well with stock settings and did not feel heavy or as I rode through the high-speed on the way north to Castaic Lake. I to get the bike to an indicated XXXMPH not incriminate myself!) chasing a CBR1000RR.

Once I got to the more technical like Bouquet and Latigo the ER-6n really came its own and showed that, in the right it is a take-no-prisoners type of bike. The Dunlop Sportmax tires plenty of grip and confidence to tackle the switchback, decreasing and hairpin turns while the parallel twin provided of mid range torque.

After 6 and a half hours of riding my wasn’t overly tired due to the upright riding position and seat. My buddy, however, on his was going to be hurting the next day for After a great Mexican at the famous Casa Blanca it is really a white house) in Beach, I was ready to call it a day and back home.

In conclusion… The ER-6N looks great the Candy Plasma Blue unique offset rear and swingarm, and under carriage that is guaranteed to spark and conversation at your next hangout. Its engine performance is and will stretch that across your face as you through some nice roads or just a cruise the city with your other on the back. With an of $6399.00 the Kawasaki ER-6N is a bike that is easy to for a beginner but also has the ability to be fun and for the more experienced rider.
