2012 Kawasaki ER-6 gets updates too

Straight-laced middleweight gets a touch of Ninja. Well, a Green Belt at least.

Kawasaki might have been teasing us about the new ZZR1400 but it's not let anything leak about the two new ER-6 models that will join the firm's 2012 line up.

Both the ER-6n and ER-6f have been totally revised, with a new frame and new styling as you can see in here. The suspension and engines remain relatively unchanged, although Kawasaki says the mid-range and bottom end power have been increased. Peak power stays at 72bhp.

That's one hell of a bike there . The universal Japanese bike personified .Very tempting .If that was a 900 >1100cc , It would be almost irresistable

The "universal Japanese bike personified"?????? I think not....the new Honda CB-1100 would be that....this Kawa looks llike a million other Japanese sports bikes...all loud colours, sharp edges and a millions creases etc....YECH!
Unfortunately Honda is not offering the beautiful CB-1100 in North America...just more of their ugly v-twins more's the pity....

The Kwaka is a parallel twin barses ,not a "V" twin, and it comes in all sorts of forms . They offer  adventure , naked , and a sports versions in an affordable easy to maintain package designed for the plebs . Not a UJM ?? I've seen the new CB .Pure retro nostalgia . A ujm of the past . This is why I called the ER6 a personified UJM . You can have a style to suit your riding enviroment . lets see you grab a cb 1100 and turn it into an adventure bike haha
