Essential Riding: the new ER-6n

For motorcyclists, whether new to two wheels or long-term riders, the essence of motorcycling, the freedom that riding on two wheels provides, is sometimes difficult to express.With a reputation for innovative motorcycles delivering the performance sought by enthusiasts the world over, Kawasaki have now taken the refreshing and imaginative step of combining their engineering prowess and an awareness of contemporary design, with the introduction of the stunning all-new ER-6n.

Conceived at the exclusive Kawasaki design facility in Akashi, Japan, the ER-6n
represents a bold new era for Kawasaki and fresh opportunities both for existing riders
and those who have previously not considered the merits of motorcycling.

A machine for riders of all ages and abilities whether male or female, the core appeal of
the ER-6n is that of a motorcycle at the very cutting edge of contemporary design, just as
pleasing to look at as it is to ride.

Incorporating ergonomics perfectly suited to a variety of riders, the ER-6n makes
optimum use of a compact two-cylinder engine to deliver a sleek chassis that is extremely
manoeuvrable and fun-to-ride.

For new riders, the ER-6n experience will grow and mature along with theirs.
For existing riders, the machine will reawaken in them the very essence of the motorcycle
riding sensation, providing a broad spread of useable engine power matched to a chassis
that is outstanding in both visual and engineering terms.

The ER-6n represents a single-minded vision for the Kawasaki company, a vision born of
a passionate commitment to offering the sheer enjoyment that motorcycling represents to
the widest possible audience.

In an age where transport alternatives all shout for attention, the ER-6n evokes the
elusive essence of Kawasaki’s commitment to fun, thrills and freedom on two wheels,
crafted and distilled into one distinctive statement.

Sharp contemporary styling is not all that sets the ER-6n apart from the crowd, although its freshness and individuality are strikingly clear - this bike is sharp on the move too, with a responsive diamond-style trellis frame and an all-new 649 cm3 parallel twin engine delivering great torquey power.

Simple to operate due to its low seat height, ergonomic riding position, slender profile, short wheelbase and centralised mass, the ER-6n is highly accessible to riders of all ages and abilities, but with enough aggressive Kawasaki performance and character to keep all enthralled for years.

Fun from the moment you climb aboard, with the promise of plenty more excitement to come.

Isn't that just how motorcycling should be?


The ER-6n has something for everyone. Ladies, new riders and returning riders will love the low seat height, light weight and low-effort controls. Commuters will appreciate the nimble handling and incredible fuel economy. And riders looking for a second bike will be surprised at the ER-6n’s impressive all-around performance.

Positive feedback
Efficient petal disc brakes provide superb feel and strong braking performance, with the option of front and rear ABS for technologically enhanced stopping power.

Understated over-achiever
The mass-centralising under-engine muffler doesn't just open up chassis space with its sharp minimalist design - a 3-way catalyser ensures the ER-6n meets stringent Euro-III emission regulations a full year early.

Form and function
Stacked twin lamps dominate a lean and aggressive headlight unit. Perched in the instrument cluster above, a classic analogue tachometer keeps you in touch with engine performance while a vibrant LCD screen digitally monitors your progress.

ABS (optional)
In addition to the very effective petal disc brakes, customers looking for an added degree of reassuring braking performance can also choose models with front and rear ABS (available in certain markets).

Sculpted fuel tank
Sculpted fuel tank conforms to the rider’s legs and is narrow at the rear, allowing riders to keep their legs close together.
