It's all kicking off at The Carole Nash International Motorcycle and Scooter Show, 28th November to 7th December
The range of new
bikes is fronted by the totally re-vamped, lighter Ninja ZX-6R designed for superior all round control. The sharper, quicker-revving, lighter-handling ER-6n and ER-6f machines will also excite showgoers
with their contemporary looks and performance.
The latest ZX-6R continues its track orientated heritage taking the new model to peak performance
whilst retaining road sensibilities. A revised chassis and lighter weight enhances handling to give the
rider greater confidence to explore the machine’s considerable limits. The ZX-6R’s latest engine
provides precise engine control across all RPM and pumps out an impressive spread of mid-range
torque. Aesthetically the 2009 ZX-6R follows its big brother, the Ninja ZX-10R, using twin fox-eye
style head lights, MotoGP inspired fairing panels and a seat-unit almost identical to its larger
The naked ER-6n and the faired ER-6f have been comprehensively updated with new fuelling
characteristics for the parallel twin engines that provide smoother low-mid response and a quickerrevving
character. A lighter chassis and changes to the frame, swingarm and suspension allowed by
the ER-6’s compact engine have improved handling further still and enabled the bike to retain the
dimensions of a 400 but with the power of a 650.
Joining the new ZX-6R, ER-6n and ER-6f, Kawasaki will also be showing off other new for 2009
models; the VN1700 Voyager, VN1700 Classic, VN1700 Classic Tourer and KLX250R off-road styled
Race fans will be eager to get up close and personal with Kawasaki’s ZX-RR MotoGP bike, British
Superbike machines and the mighty KX450F and KX250F from their off road competition stable.
Michael Johnstone, Sales and Marketing Manager, Kawasaki Motors UK, commented; “We are
anticipating a real buzz around our NEC Show presence with a raft of major new models, a MotoGP
bike and other race machines on display plus our very own on-stand clothing shop. With new
supersport, cruiser, naked and off-road style bikes making their UK debut at this show there is a
real must-see element to the Kawasaki stand”.
