Why choose Kawasaki?

Originally involved in the manufacture of aircraft, ships and trains, Kawasaki soon turned its attention to powered two-wheelers in 1954 built its first bikes in the form of a 60cc two-stroke, a 150cc four-stroke and a 250cc four-strokes.

The Japanese company developed into one of the biggest manufacturers quickly and by 1960 it was in a position to take over Meguro, the oldest motorbike manufacturer in Japan.

Since then, Kawasaki has concentrated on building big, powerful sportsbikes with the 1969 500cc H1 its first properly successful motorcycle.

Modern day Kawasaki

Over the years, lots of different Kawasakis have been added to that list with the Ninja H2R the latest in a long line of explosive machines that have tasted success on the road and on the racetrack.

After a little bit of a ropey start & a few minor adjustments geared to assist my small stature, I can honestly say I absolutely love, love, love my bike.

It handles brilliantly, responds as you would expect & in my opinion is both an excellent first bike, yet still has enough there to please the experienced rider. I have toured Europe (France, through the Pyrenees, Andorra & Spain) on my bike & also Scotland. I had no problem fitting & transporting a 52L tail pack with integrated pannier sides for my trips. The riding position is great for those days when you need to get the touring miles in.
The screen & fairings for me are perfect, stops me getting buffeted about. I rode down from Scotland in torrential rain/high winds, I would say the fairing/screen meant I arrived home much less tired after my 300+ mile day than I would have been without them.

My only real gripe is the seat lock/lack of storage under the seat ( I mean come on!... who puts a lock facing downwards near the back wheel where all the dirt from the road sprays up & into the lock? Sigh!) Recommend WD40 into the lock wipe excess off and then cover with insulation tape ( Bike is black so it works without anyone ever noticing.)
want to stash anything under the seat...? Forget it... there is no room at the inn!

So, is the ER6 worth the time, money & effort? Unequivocally yes, provided that you give it the regular maintenance/servicing, the same as any vehicle. 15,000 plus miles & my ER6 still runs like new.
