The 2006 Kawasaki ER-6n continues the side-mounter rear shock tradition.

While offering the same suspension performance, this solution allows for a shorter wheelbase with the same swingarm, offering great traction and better cornering.

As for the rest, the 2006 ER-6n comes with several race-inspired features, such as the petal disc rotors and a short-profile, low-slung exhaust can for a more compact design and better mass centralization. The 649cc parallel-twin engine now delivers 72 PS and the whole bike comes with a dry weight of 174 kg.
