In what middleweight streetfighter bikes, a and smooth operating engine, ergonomics and light handling are all that manage to do the trick and every time. So what have possibly been doing to the ER-6n that ended up delivering such a aggressive looking and awesome motorcycle that it even up on the American market? Honestly, a lot.


Relying on injection and liquid cooling, update the finishing touches of the parallel-twin DOHC, 8-valve in

71.15-hp fuel injected twin engine

order for the revver to look like is was to power the … bike in the place, not the Ninja 650R. A catalyzer mounted inside the ensures that Euro-III are met, just like in the of the above mentioned.

Kawasaki how demanding U.S. consumers can be the products they buy, the ones that don’t to their idea of a motorcycle so it ads a low only 29.7 inches the ground), slim seat in to the comfortable riding position. it is now claimed that a significantly level of vibrations will be through the handlebars and footpegs, it a good recommendation for women towards two-wheeled forms of

Still, the bike doesn’t as being powered by a two-cylinder and hides the low seat pretty with its big Kawi looks. The is nicely contoured in a greatly fairing while stylish lights are integrated into the fairing, giving the ER-6n a distinctive look. Even a …, you will need a eye to spot the exhaust when all the 72 bhp are rushed next to you.

As as the engine might be, it remains a one and these types always a six-speed gearbox for a more top speed and better mileage when riding on the freeway.

Like the mechanical parts, the was built to be as compact and as light as while remaining a top performer. a budget bike, it still on the high-tensile steel trellis instead of an aluminum one, but as as that does the trick, declare ourselves satisfied. have been reset for handling and the petal disc are both stylish and effective so another well done job on the

Overall, the bike looks and very inviting.


turned to building streetfighter in 2005 with the all-new a replacement for the Kawasaki ER-5 bike built in the 1990s and selling it as a 2006 model The bike was a radical new approach riders in Europe mostly and it was around the liquid-cooled, 649cc, parallel twin cylinder Fuel injection was there the start (a 2 x Keihin system 38 mm throttle bodies, to be more and it brought a major contribution to the hp at 6,700 rpm and 66 Nm at 6,700 rpm that the ever model year

As seen, the bike was top notch the very beginning and all that later needed to do was to simply the engine for greater low and midrange They came up with change on the 2008 model which’s engine developed Nm at7,000 rpm showing how a bike can be with tweaks of the torque

The year 2009 brought the model, which started sent to the United States as Candy Plasma Blue was THE for it.


The 2010 Kawasaki would have had all the chances to be of competitors on the American market if it for the middleweight Suzuki Gladius. not a veritable streetfighter, but a … bike, the 2010 Suzuki is powered by a fuel-injected, 645cc, liquid-cooled, DOHC, 90-degree engine and has an MSRP starting at pointing it as an ideal ER-6n


It’s really not to notice the amount of attention to put into the 2010 ER-6n by taking a look at it. A blend of heritage and aggressive streetfighter the bike is not just a stripped Ninja 650R. but a compact and model with both and character of its own.

The headlight is bike’s most distinctive and so are the side panels (housing the lights), the instruments housing as as the sharp front fender. The gas is positioned in between the trellis tubular bars and features a shape compared to the one on the first model year.

Now more looking, the blacked out engine an aggressive note. So do the 17-inch in between which the exhaust is perfectly hidden. The seat, only 29.7 inches the ground, is impeccably finished and that compact bike

Overall, the new Metallic Flat Black color makes the look like a much expensive motorcycle and greater than it actually is.


There have been minor chassis and engine (a D-shaped swingarm and alterations to the essentially) and the design brief was to the bike appear more to, well, ’young people.’

Powering the ER-6n is Kawasaki’s 649cc Parallel Twin, the used in the 650R and Versys, but it doesn’t feel as lively in machine. Sure it revs a faster than the Suzuki and a bit tougher but it just not as inspiring.

Accelerate off the line, and the ER-6n with reasonable low-end and midrange pull, redlining at an 11,000 rpm. But a majority of torque can be found in the middle where the 649-cc twin its sweet spot. popularmechanics

The ER eagerly devours a road with more than you might expect. The riding position gives a the feeling of dominance over the ER, confidence to soar for riders of all levels. motorcycle

. naturally enough, it feels similar to the old bike, the engine is so there’s no difference there and still a lot of fun to ride. MCN


an MSRP that starts at $6,699, Kawasaki’s middleweight unveils a more aggressive strategy of Kawasaki compared to of Suzuki’s for the 2010 Gladius. And more than 22,000 sold around the world, can surely say their strategy is


Without a doubt, knew how to grow the small … into an evolved of motoring that didn’t needed more than two big steps in order to call it Retaining comfort and practicability making it sportier and better has been a key to this bike’s and we have a feeling that are going to stay this way a long time from
