General information about the 2009 Kawasaki ER-6n

The ER-6n started up instantly every time with automatic enrichment, and its two Keihin 38mm throttle bodies have excellent fuel delivery. The ER-6n is narrow and with a seat height of 30.9 inches it is an ideal bike for inseam-challenged riders who want something sporty. The 41mm non-adjustable telescopic fork has 4.7 inches of travel, and the single shock is spring preload-adjustable only, with 4.9 inches of travel.

The clean, size-efficient engine delivers good fuel economy and also meets stringent emission regulations because of its precise fuel-injection and three-way catalyzer system. The ER-6n’s bodywork accentuates the frame, the angular lines and simple design flows through the frame, rear suspension and swingarm creating an integrating line running from steering head to rear hub.

Its tall fuel tank, raked-back radiator shrouds, and sharp tail cowl further enhance the bike’s front-to-back compactness. The instrument cluster is uniquely stacked with a sharp design and easy layout from the analog speedometer to the multi-function LCD screen. The instrumentation features include a fuel gauge, bar-style digital tachometer, clock, odometer, and dual trip meters.
