It was sometimes hard to why some motorcycle evolves. The ER-6n model 2009/2011 has a reputation, makes good in its target markets ( Italy, ) … but nevertheless undergoes a redesign for even as other models in the would have been appropriate. It is imbued with a perplexity that I approach the new of the little Japanese roadster.

By the family resemblance is undeniable, but up the bike changes a lot: new new swing arm, new look … A novelty, whatever.

By deepening the there are some details get angry some details, as turn signals that side scoops – all the better for schools, it will cost money! Moreover, there are long footrests driver and one-piece – which are also to schools during the motorcycle – or even a few here and there welds on the frame.

Yet it was always as much like “ put on the front wheel. “ The saddle, now in two is narrower near the tank and and flatter in its rear, which one – sorry ladies … – The fat of the buttocks. It is to help smaller riders landfall.

And despite a slight it is possible: from 1.65 m, it is to install both feet on the From the outset, the feeling of is good, but let’s sees several kilometers to confirm.
