2013 Kawasaki ER-6n Features and Benefits

All-new double-pipe perimeter-style frame

Like on its predecessor, the all-new double-pipe perimeter-style frame is a key component of the ER-6n’s identity. As before, the new bodywork accentuates the frame, rather than hiding it. The double-pipe design of the new frame, made from high-tensile steel, contributes to the bike’s lightweight appearance.

More compact headlamp

More compact headlamp shroud is shorter front to back, and designed to make it look slimmer vertically as well – an image reinforced by the smoked instrument visor. Angular design of the stacked dual headlamp helps maintain the identity of the ER-6n while contributing to the sharp new street-fighter style looks.

Taller fuel tank

The fuel tank is 20 mm taller, helping to visually concentrate the ER-6n’s mass at the front of the bike. The rear of the tank slopes back in a straight line to the seat.

Compact, quick-revving engine with stronger low-mid range

The ER-6n’s Parallel Twin engine configuration was chosen as the best balance of good power characteristics and compact size.

Engine tuning delivered both a rider-friendly character ideal for new riders and performance to put a smile on the faces of more experienced motorcyclists. The engine’s compact size was one of the keys to realising the ER-6n’s slim package. The 2012 engine offers more low-mid range torque for more fun and greater usability in everyday riding situations, while maintaining the smooth, high-revving character of its predecessor.

Lighter Handling

The rigidity balance of the double-pipe frame and swingarm contributes to a lighter, easier handling package. Rigid-mount engine is a stressed member, contributing to the frame’s idealised rigidity balance.

The swingarm’s new double-pipe design makes use of a D-section tube (upper right tube) for optimal rigidity. Revised suspension has longer stroke front and rear, offering both sporty handling and enhanced comfort. Rear shock length and stroke are 2 mm longer; front fork is 15 mm longer with 5 mm longer stroke to match the rear. The longer strokes enable lower spring rates. Damping has been revised accordingly.

Increased Comfort

Sporty looking tandem seat with thick cushioning ensures good passenger comfort.

Ergonomic passenger grips are positioned to make them easy for tandem riders to grab. Good passenger confidence makes it easier for riders when carrying a pillion.
Seat bracket is rubber-mounted at the front to reduce vibration transfer.

More torque in every day range

Under-engine muffler with larger volume and revised internal construction delivers increased torque in the everyday range below 7,000 rpm. The increased performance facilitates control at lower rpm and contributes to the enhanced enjoyment of the new ER-6n.

New swingarm

Following the lines of the frame and rear shock, the swingarm also features the new double-pipe design, complementing the design of the frame and contributing to the ER-6n’s high-quality appearance. The swingarm’s gull-arm style design on the right side enables the more aggressive angle of the muffler.

Intake ducts through frame tubes

Intake ducts extend through the frame tubes to ensure a source of cool fresh air for the engine. This also contributes to the induction note, adding to rider excitement.

Revised shrouds

Revised shrouds are narrower when viewed from the front. Front turn signals, previously built-in to the shrouds, are mounted on the headlamp shroud. quality appearance.

New instruments

To enable the more compact front area, the instrument cluster was moved as far back as possible. It is mounted above the handlebar.

A stacked instrument cluster features an easier-to-read layout and an analogue-style tachometer uses white LED backlights for excellent visibility at night. The multi-function LCD screen has blue backlighting. In addition to the fuel gauge, digital speedometer, clock, odometer and dual trip meters, new features include: remaining range, average/instant fuel consumption and the Economical Riding Indicator.

Raised tick marks on the tachometer dial face, a bubble lens and elevated instrument frame construction contribute to the instrumentation’s greater legibility as well as a high-quality image.


Sharper tail cowl

Sharper tail cowl is 10 mm shorter, helping to move volume away from the rear of the bike. A sharper new LED taillight contributes to the slimmer look.


An offset laydown rear single-shock suspension flows smoothly from the frame to the swingarm.

Euro-III Compliant

The combination of efficient fuel injection and a 3-way catalyser inside the muffler result in low emissions. Revised muffler internal construction and catalyser layout ensure clean emissions that will pass stringent Euro-III regulations.
