Kawasaki ER650-C (ER-6n)
Black, Orange & White
The new ER-6n takes the key concepts of its highly acclaimed predecessor – Fun to ride. Easy to ride for a wide range of riders. Top-class styling – and brings them to the next level.
Unique Selling Features:
1) SHARPER, MASCULINE STYLING = While maintaining the distinctive character of its predecessor, the new ER-6n gets sharper, more muscular bodywork, giving it a more “active” and aggressive image. Curved lines are replaced with angular ones, and all lines move forward, giving the bike a crouching appearance. Simple in design, the new ER-6n avoids all superfluous design flourishes; lines were made to flow as long as possible. The new, taller fuel tank, pulledback shrouds and sharp tail cowl make the bike look more compact front-to-back. Attention to the smallest details contributes to the new bike’s high-quality finish.
2) COMPACT, QUICK-REVVING ENGINE = The balance of compact size and good power offered by the original ER-6n was the key to its success. To fit into its trim package, an In-line Four would have been too wide and a V-Twin too long.The only engine design that offered both good power characteristics and the requisite compactness was a Parallel Twin. While maintaining this balance, the new engine gets a number of tweaks that offer smoother low-mid response and a quicker revving character.
3) LIGHT-HANDLING CHASSIS = The key to the ER-6n’s compact size is its amazingly compact Parallel Twin engine, which permits the use of a narrow, lightweight frame. The result is a bike with the dimensions of a 400 and the power of a 650 that welcomes beginners with a “Come on, let’s go for a ride!” attitude, while also offering plenty of performance for more experienced riders. Changes to the frame, swingarm and suspension result in reduced vibration and lighter handling, making the new ER-6n more accessible than ever.
