data-trigger=hover class=pop-blog-ads 1997 Kawasaki VN500


The ER-6n was designed one thing in mind – easy The parallel-twin powertrain produces enough amount of power and for rookies to handle. The low and short of the bike contributes to its brilliant distribution, hence its agility and Some even said its a play.

Nowadays, most driving institutions provide for B license class. I signed up for the at a driving institution in Shah few months ago, where had two units  ER-6n. As a beginner no prior experience in riding bigger than 150 cc, I found the was quite true.

The ER-6n was to ride.

So when Kawasaki the yellow 2012 ER-6n to me, I was confident that I wouldn’t any trouble handling it. I was also that its all mine to abuse for the For the 2012 model, Kawasaki has the bike a quite extensive While maintaining the same and mechanicals, the new ER-6n is sharper.

It features a more aggressive headlight with its stacked clusters and a newly designed LED taillight which helps in the tail look slicker to its predecessor.

One thing you would not looking at the instrument cluster is the layout of the speedo and rev meter – the speedometer is located below the rev meter, as opposed to the previous which came with an speedometer above the digital rev I found the new layout much and easier to read. It’s prone to reflections too.

changes include repositioned lights, new two-piece seat, cover garnish, taller position and a double-pipe frame on each side of the bike.

My were greeted by a bassy yet rumbling note coming out of the muffler as I started the bike up. I it a little more up to 7,000 rpm and the was already wailing, telling me in its own that it was ready to go. I am only 165 cm and getting on the bike with two standing on the ground was not really an

At 805 mm, the seat is positioned just at the height. I first took the for a spin around the vicinity in Alam and Subang Jaya, to get the ‘feel’. It was not that difficult to with the bike’s weight and

It follows your flow. The goes where you want to go in a manner. For instance, I managed to my way around a heavy traffic without knocking someone’s mirror, which I know a lot of do.


Then I took it to the road. There, the 649 cc, parallel power unit with 71 hp and 64 Nm of torque at its disposal did not fail me. It as atrociously as it could, like a chasing a gazelle in the savanna. The sign in the dash disappeared as I the throttle open, lifting the RPM above 8,000 rpm.

Shifting? It was effortless. You can actually that the wet clutch engages and the gears in a very precise Because torque was plentiful the engine’s powerband, you could that it wants more as you into higher gears.

If the could talk, I’m sure it say “KEEP IT COMING!”.

What is liberating was the fact that the did not really need some to convince you that it is one hell of a It doesn’t have to bear the moniker to show that it is of carving an evil smirk on face. Given the specifications, bike is fast. Not as fast as any middleweight superbikes, but it is still

It accelerates fluently. I was overtaking on the right lane so swiftly I believe it was such a breeze. I was before I realized I was going too (it was only at 150 km/h actually) and the wind was already pushing my feeble body figure.

A common issue for a …

The standard-issue Dunlop Roadsmart did their job. They stably planted on the tarmac at speed. No wobbles even the rain. The brakes worked too, though I did feel the rear pad was fading and giving out at point. The telescopic front and rear single-shock were

There wasn’t any issue to be except that they just fine. The set up were and comfortable enough – good on course, forgiving on bumpy Well… I did not get down all the way to my knees a real biker should but I that the ER-6n has the capacity to as low as it possibly could, bringing the closer to the road. All you need is a of balls.

Made of steel.

So what is not so about the ER-6n then? Honestly I don’t know. I the bike. It looks and handles Power-wise? Sufficing. But some tend to forget that the is powered by a two-cylinder engine. So like, “The bike is not enough”, “It doesn’t sound as as the Ninja” and “You will get in no time” and such, were popular to my ears when I out my consideration of buying it.

I know a of mine who is considering for a proper bike after just a few riding the ER-6n. People, is not a Ninja. I know it is derived the Ninja family but the ER-6n is not a Ninja.

So do not expect it to go as fast as the Do not expect it to growl like one Get a Ninja if you want a Ninja.

ER-6n or 6f for that matter, is a bike. More experienced may enjoy riding it but you can’t the fact that it is made for who just got their B license, who are starting to get into the world of or even for those who just to feel the fun of having two wheels their crotches. Built in and sold as CKD here in Malaysia, the is priced at RM 33,289.00.

With that kind of tag, I would say that is the best bang-for-buck motorcycle you ever get.
