Segment: Naked / Road
Production years: 2007, 2008
The 2007 Kawasaki ER-6n is almost the same bike as the one for 2006, save for some different color schemes. This year's model sports the already iconic offset side-mounted rear shock absorber with adjustable preload; using this design, the Er-6n can get a shorter wheelbase for better cornering and yet retain the swingarm length for good traction during hard acceleration.
As for the rest, the 2007 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.
