Lighter Handling

The rigidity balance of the double-pipe frame and swingarm contributes to a lighter, easier handling package. The swingarm’s new double-pipe design optimizes rigidity. Revised suspension has longer stroke front and rear, offering both sporty handling and enhanced comfort. The longer strokes enable lower spring rates. Damping was revised accordingly.

New bodywork

Kawasaki ER-6f

Deep grooves at the top of the side fairings are evocative of Kawasaki’s new flagship, the ZZR1400. Large openings in the side fairings help with heat dissipation and contribute to the ER-6f’s sporty looks. Built-in turn signals are more compact, contributing to the sporty image. Slimmer lower cowl contributes to the sharp styling.

Compact. quick-revving engine with stronger low-mid range
