Kawasaki ER-6n 2012

you`ve had a ride on the new Kawasaki you understand why the factory thoroughly the bike for 2012.

It`s not there was anything wrong the old model, as there wasn`t indeed, the middleweight all-rounder was one of the top choices for buyers in this It`s just that the new one is a lot better.

Almost everything the bike is new, most initially in the look, which clearly related to the old now has a more and purposeful stance with and more consistent lines. The of the rear shock into the of the frame on the ER-6n’s right is retained, but the frame itself with the swingarm is new, featuring a new doubled-up tube which adds interest to the style.

The exhaust in the modern style compact and tucked up beneath the centralising mass in the name of and balance, but this, a slightly compression ratio and revisions to the mapping are the only changes to power. The consequence is a broader of torque up to 7,000rpm and a slightly peak.

It doesn`t sound much but you do notice. The Kawasaki ‘s motor seems to be balanced and smoother than too, delighting with its chocolate feel and immediate delivery, and offering enough to let you leave it in a high gear and along country lanes constantly having to work the to maintain the revs and keep it

There`s a very noticeable and growl coming up from the fuel tank when stretching the motor`s ability, by reassuring stability across the range and agility enough to sinuous roads a pleasure than hard work. changes are fast and the Kawasaki holds its line accurately.

The is significantly softer than on the old a move made possible by the amount of wheel travel, and it does affect the bike`s a little when you`re pushing it hard, especially in direction changes, the improvement in quality and comfort are well it. The bike is also better on bumpy roads (which to be most of them these ), dealing with potholes convincingly than before.

The Kawasaki ER-6n is a compact though, too small really for riders. I`m 6`3” (1.91m) and like I was dwarfing the bike, this is psychological as much as as a 400 mile (650km) round in poor conditions was dealt in surprising comfort. Certainly the is perfectly acceptable for long and the engine`s thriftiness with means the bike has a decent too.

An Eco indicator in the dash on when the revs are below and the throttle isn`t opened too which allows you to cruise at (130kph) without extinguishing it. Do and you`re rewarded with (19.1km/l, 5.23l/100km, 45mpg and much faster is uncomfortable without a fairing to break up the

Ride more carefully and that can be eased up to 60mpg 4.71l/100km, 50mpg US), harder use drops the figures to the low 40s to the (approx 15km/l, 6.7l/100km, US). With 3.5 gallons (16 4.2 gallons US) in the tank it`ll to 190 miles (300km) between not bad for a bike in this class.

The improved dash lets you your economy accurately and how miles you have remaining, a of class on a sub- £6,000 The Kawasaki ER-6n is a high machine throughout in fact: the adjusters are chunky machined blocks, plastic shrouds the forks from stone and the fit and finish generally are exceptionally

A shame then that no ABS option (in the UK market, this be different in some others), some rivals can offer and will certainly sway buying decisions. If you want you`ll need to go for the faired which is £200 more a further £400 for the ABS itself. BUt fairing will certainly the versatility.

Even so, the Kawasaki is great fun and very capable, as always been, but now looks than before and adds a extra degree of comfort. Its ace is the engine, which has quietly to the top of its class for its breadth of power and sound and feel.
