Kawasaki ER-6n

While bikes usually are refreshed or every two years, most bikes have significantly shelf lives, so it’s a surprise to see Kawasaki’s novice-friendly ER-6n being facelifted — it still feels a relative newcomer. But it was introduced in and the bike we’re looking at now is a model, so this is four down the line, on top of which the package of changes are nothing than a gentle facelift and tweak. Not that the ER-6n any major overhaul: it was always wieldy, easy to ride and well enough to excite intimidating, although if you were fussy you might have out its vibey, buzzy feel revved.

Kawasaki quietly agreed, it I rode the facelifted ER-6n (n for the test of the later-arriving ER-6f full bodywork is here) on sinuous but slippery Majorcan earlier this week, and two specifically have been the style and vibration. The new look is conventional than the original-s if recognisably ER-6, with of the Japanese noh-mask-inspired subtle surfaces and more by way of defined and lines, adding some and, Kawasaki hopes, a youthful appeal too, as like to attract a younger It-s a well balanced interesting and funky enough for all of riders, and the dynamic changes made it a more pleasing too.

Specifically, there-s additional mounting between engine and as well as for the handlebars, while and rear footrests get rubber The engine is unchanged internally but from revised ignition and mapping, while the dash has modernised. There are other aimed at improving the feel of such as cast aluminium of plastic passenger grab a better finish on the fork and so on, but it-s the improvment in how the bike to ride that impresses the considerably more than the few changes imply.

The reduced vibration is certainly especially when the engine is harder and also when at a steady high speed: the tingles through bars and improve comfort very But the engine is also smoother in the way it its power, with a creamier but eager sensation and greater to rev. It wasn-t bad by any means but it-s still clearly now.

One other change has to the suspension, which is firmed up with higher quality a direct consequence of the old model-s — that sold so — 22,000 examples in — that Kawasaki has able to order larger of components from its various and in many cases, rather use the increase in scale to cut costs upped the quality instead. And as the engine, there-s a noticeable in feel, especially on poor which the bike absorbs confidently and with a plusher at the same time delivering stability when pushed

The basic assets of the old model are it-s agile and enjoyable, on twisty back roads the engine-s low rev torque saves of gear changing and hard Fuel economy is good, 50-plus mpg a reasonable expectation, and it great when the engine-s hard. ABS is a £300 option and is very smooth and efficient, braking power generally is as as most riders will

But the gear change is still on the side, as with the old machine. that this is a compact with a low seat: tall will find their cramped, but for shorties it-s an easy machine to manage.

change from the old is not enormous in but as a complete package the new model is forward convincingly, and that-s an already accomplished base and while no price has been yet, it won-t be much than the outgoing machine-s which is great value.

Price: £4,400 est (to be confirmed)
