This naked streetbike utilizes the same chassis and engine combo that underpins the like able Kawasaki Versys 650—Kawi's quasi-adventure bike with the longer-suspension travel and the sensibly sporty Ninja 650R. A torquey 650cc liquid-cooled, DOHC, four-valve-per-cylinder parallel twin engine powers this naked Ninja. There’s good power in the midrange, which makes this a fun ride in the twisties. I take that back: It’s great fun in the twisties. As stated previously, this is essentially a Ninja 650. The ER-6n feels stable at speed on the highway and there’s plenty of get-up-and-go for novice as well as experienced riders. This one has been set up with a Yosh pipe, that sounds really good!!! Braking power on this middleweight is superb with twin 300mm petal-shaped rotors up front with twin-piston calipers, and a single 220mm petal-shaped rotor astern with a single-piston caliper. The cable-actuated wet clutch feels light and easy to modulate, and shifting though the six-speed tranny is a smooth affair. Both the clutch and brake levers are adjustable. The instrument cluster isn’t much larger than one of the rear-view mirrors, but it contains a lot of info. When it’s time to find a gas station, the last bar “E” will start flashing at about the 135-mile mark and “FUEL” comes up across the instrument panel. Check out the pictures and what you will see is a naked beauty that will keep a twisty-back-roads rider very happy. Fully serviced, and ready to ride!!!
