Used test: 2010 ER-6n

The dark ninja

prefers not to bugger about. manufacturers might make bikes, prettier bikes, or that are easier to ride, but quite rightly, flips the at such sentimental softness and delivers red-blooded motorcycles more power and higher top than anyone else. But haven’t forgotten the newbies to with the top-selling Ninja 300 and the mid-engine … — the ER-6n.

The is A machine for riders of all ages and whether male or female, the appeal of the ER-6n is that of a at the very cutting edge of design, just as pleasing to at as it is to ride, says the overview on website about the 2010 we’re showcasing here.

The of the ER-6n was a big deal back it was first launched and it was a pretty step. Kawasaki wanted a design so the bike looked from every angle. really hard not to notice the of attention to detail put into the ER-6n by simply taking a at it. A blend of … heritage and streetfighter looks, the bike is not a stripped-down Ninja 650R, but a and muscular model with looks and character of its own.

The headlight is this bike’s distinctive touch and so are the side (housing the signal lights), the housing, as well as the sharp fender. The gas tank is positioned in the trellis frame’s tubular and features a refined shape to the one on the first ER-6n model

One thing is for sure — it’s to ignore the ER-6n. From the cradle, high-tensile steel to the laid-down rear shock and headlight, the design of this is like Marmite — people love it or hate it, which for is good going. For it is a relatively thing to produce a budget but to make an affordable motorcycle is controversial to look at and fun to ride, that’s another thing

Overall, I think the ‘metallic spark black’ colour the ER-6n look like a more expensive motorcycle it actually is.

Hop on and the engine whispers life at the touch of a button. As a 649cc parallel twin it to rev. Scurrying around the and offices of downtown Auckland, the exhaust was so quiet that all the noise came from the And true to 180-degree parallel-twin it sounds and feels exactly a small V-twin engine away beneath you.

Kawasaki has never made a V-twin and it didn’t want to with this bike for of having an identity crisis, but is the nearest thing to it. It’s a little motor, as happy to top gear from as low as 55km/h as it is to rev all the way to its redline, and there’s useful to be had pretty much everywhere. claims 72bhp at 8500rpm and of torque at 7000rpm, while came up on the digital speedo my chin buried behind the instrument binnacle, and it got there smartly.

While the motorcycle’s definitely follows with its exterior shape, as a package it is to read at a glance. Most of the you’d want are there, an analog-style speedo and a bar-graph-style with double trip and a clock.

There are no surprises in the way the ER-6n its power or goes around and you would have to be high on with a paper bag over head for anything troublesome to to you while riding it. It is very allowing the novice, or more riders to quietly get on with what makes a motorcycle

Sit yourself down on the ER-6n, and it tiny. The fuel tank is and the reach to the ground from the seat height is short. The is perfectly comfortable for lanky your knees fit against the fine, but you will look a giraffe mounting a monkey on an entirely aesthetic note, I recommend it for tallies.

The gearbox is a little number, although the are widely spread and there times when first was too low and second too high. Whether you use the or prefer clutchless-shifts, every drops in sweetly and you can hammer the gearbox on the way into corners, the tyre hopping and squeaking the tarmac as the Kwaka scrubs off The accent is on fun with the ER-6n.

You can ride it like a total and it just thrums along you, eager to please. If it a dog, it would be a labrador.

up the wick and the ER-6n gets on and with it. The brakes, superbike-style discs, are all good, slowing the up with this weighty on board with ease.

I’d have to say there anything the 2010 ER-6n is bad at. Sadly, the 2010 version here isn’t LAMS-approved — it out too much power. But never learners, the 2013 models are and come with ABS, for the sum of $13,990 (+ORC).

And if you’re looking for a 2010 like the beastie shown Red Baron Motorcycles in Auckland has a green one for sale, brand new for (+ORC).
