2014 Kawasaki ER-6n

Posted on by  

The Kawasaki ER-6n was especially designed for the city traffic, but it feels pretty comfortable on the open road too.

The motorcycle is propelled by a 649 cc, liquid cooled, 4- stroke parallel twin, DOHC engine which generates a maximum output of 53 KW (72.1 PS) at 8,500 rpm and 64 Nm of torque at 6000 rpm. The engine’s power is controlled by a six speed transmission with wet, multi-disc clutch.

Jump on board and you’ll be greeted by a narrow seat which is placed pretty low to the ground, function-friendly controls and an ergonomically designed handlebar.

The stopping power is handled by front dual semi-floating 300 mm petal discs and rear single 220 mm petal discs.

The Kawasaki ER-6n is offered with a starting price of €6.519 for the base model and €7.002 for the ABS version.

2014 Kawasaki ER-6n Features and Benefits:

Kawasaki ER-6n

More compact headlamp

More compact headlamp shroud is shorter front to back, and designed to make it look slimmer vertically as well – an image reinforced by the smoked instrument visor. Angular design of the stacked dual headlamp helps maintain the identity of the ER-6n while contributing to the sharp new street-fighter style looks.

Taller fuel tank

Kawasaki ER-6n

The fuel tank is 20 mm taller, helping to visually concentrate the ER-6n’s mass at the front of the bike. The rear of the tank slopes back in a straight line to the seat.

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

Kawasaki ER-6n

The ER-6n’s Parallel Twin engine configuration was chosen as the best balance of good power characteristics and compact size. Engine tuning delivered both a rider-friendly character ideal for new riders and performance to put a smile on the faces of more experienced motorcyclists. The engine’s compact size was one of the keys to realising the ER-6n’s slim package. The 2012 engine offers more low-mid range torque for more fun and greater usability in everyday riding situations, while maintaining the smooth, high-revving character of its predecessor.

All-new double-pipe perimeter-style frame

Kawasaki ER-6n

Like on its predecessor, the all-new double-pipe perimeter-style frame is a key component of the ER-6n’s identity. As before, the new bodywork accentuates the frame, rather than hiding it. The double-pipe design of the new frame, made from high-tensile steel, contributes to the bike’s lightweight.

Lighter Handling

Kawasaki ER-6n

The rigidity balance of the double-pipe frame and swingarm contributes to a lighter, easier handling package. Rigid-mount engine is a stressed member, contributing to the frame’s idealised rigidity balance. The swingarm’s new double-pipe design makes use of a D-section tube (upper right tube) for optimal rigidity.

More torque in every day range

Kawasaki ER-6n

Under-engine muffler with larger volume and revised internal construction delivers increased torque in the everyday range below 7,000 rpm. The increased performance facilitates control at lower rpm and contributes to the enhanced enjoyment of the new ER-6n.

Increased Comfort

Sporty looking tandem seat with thick cushioning ensures good passenger comfort. Ergonomic passenger grips are positioned to make them easy for tandem riders to grab. Good passenger confidence makes it easier for riders when carrying a pillion. Seat bracket is rubber-mounted at the front to reduce vibration transfer.

New swingarm

Kawasaki ER-6n

Following the lines of the frame and rear shock, the swingarm also features the new double-pipe design, complementing the design of the frame and contributing to the ER-6n’s high-quality appearance. The swingarm’s gull-arm style design on the right side enables the more aggressive angle of the muffler.

New instruments

To enable the more compact front area, the instrument cluster was moved as far back as possible. It is mounted above the handlebar. A stacked instrument cluster features an easier-to-read layout and an analogue-style tachometer uses white LED backlights for excellent visibility at night. The multi-function LCD screen has blue backlighting.

Revised shrouds

Kawasaki ER-6n

Revised shrouds are narrower when viewed from the front. Front turn signals, previously built-in to the shrouds, are mounted on the headlamp shroud. quality appearance.

Intake ducts through frame tubes

Intake ducts extend through the frame tubes to ensure a source of cool fresh air for the engine. This also contributes to the induction note, adding to rider excitement.

Sharper tail cowl

Kawasaki ER-6n

Sharper tail cowl is 10 mm shorter, helping to move volume away from the rear of the bike. A sharper new LED taillight contributes to the slimmer look.

Rearshock

An offset laydown rear single-shock suspension flows smoothly from the frame to the swingarm.

Euro-III Compliant

Kawasaki ER-6n

The combination of efficient fuel injection and a 3-way catalyser inside the muffler result in low emissions. Revised muffler internal construction and catalyser layout ensure clean emissions that will pass stringent Euro-III regulations.

Optional ABS

Compact new ABS unit has a more advanced processor that enables more precise ABS control.
