Motorcycles / Kawasaki ER-6n (2005-2008)

Tests have shown that nine out of 10 road testers prefer the Kawasaki ER-6 to virtually any other middleweight machine. Bandits, Fazers, Monsters, SV650s� The Kawasaki ER-6 has trounced the lot of �em. A cunningly-disguised riot of fun, the Kawasaki ER-6 is cute, it�s capable and it�s competent just about anywhere.

You�d have to be off your rocker not to enjoy the ride.

Owners’ rating

The Kawasaki ER-6’s fuel injected, parallel twin is full of surprises. Expecting a relatively sedate ride? You�ll be amazed at the accessible, wide band of power, the responsiveness of the throttle and the sheer go of this little motorcycle. It thrives on handfuls of revs and doesn�t run out of breath until you�re way over the ton.

Life on the Kawasaki ER-6 is very, very entertaining.

Ride and Handling

MCN rating

Owners’ rating

The Kawasaki ER-6 is very nimble: excellent for nipping around town or hooning along twisty lanes. It copes with everything until, over 100mph, the suspension can complain just a little. Otherwise, it�s well set up, the gearbox is smooth and the brakes are fantastic.

Low-ish seat and narrow riding position make the Kawasaki ER-6 ideal for smaller folk but even taller riders seem to find it comfortable.

Wavy discs, off-set rear suspension and an underslung exhaust make the Kawasaki ER-6 a stylish, contemporary option. On the dash, there�s no fuel gauge (boo!) but both the brake and clutch levers are adjustable (yay!). Aftermarket Kawasaki ER-6 bits include a little screen, crash bungs and a top box. ABS is also an option for around -300.

No centre stand but that helps the Kawasaki ER-6 have excellent ground clearance.

Quality and Reliability

MCN rating

Owners’ rating

The Kawasaki ER-6 is so new it�s hard to gauge but, going by other Kawasakis, reliability should be in the �average to good� bracket. Finish is ok, although the welding�s a bit untidy in places and the wiring�s a bit of a mess. However, the Kawasaki ER-6 is not at all bad for the money.


The Kawasaki ER-6 really is excellent value. It looks so tame but is spectacular fun to ride and genuinely able to deal with pretty much everything. Even the most experienced riders have a ball on them but a novice would find it agreeably accommodating too.

Price/performance-wise, its biggest rival is Suzuki�s SV650 and the Kawasaki ER-6 certainly gives that a bloody good run for its money� Find a Kawasaki ER-6n for sale.
