Kawasaki said in a press release: 'With many announcements due from Kawasaki over the new few months, here are the new colour options announced for a number of the models in the range.

Update for 2016 Kawasaki ER-6n

The ever popular twin-cylinder ER-6n receives a visual update for 2016 with new colours just announced.

Originally launched as one of the first machines using the “fun to ride” philosophy that has featured on multiple Kawasaki machines since then, the ER-6n has wide appeal with many rider groups including those new to two wheels and riders that appreciate the freedom and financial advantage afforded by commuting to work in congested cities across Europe.

Each model now receives a creative pin-striping treatment to the fuel tank, new contrasting colour treatments for the rear shock absorber spring and wheel stripes making the ER-6n a truly stylish urban riding partner.

The three colour options offered for 2016 are Candy Lime Green with Metallic Spark Black, Metallic Carbon Gray and Metallic Spark Black and Urban City White combined with Metallic Spark Black. All the new colour options are available on ABS and non-ABS models.

ER-6f receives new 2016 colours and pin-striping

Updating the colour treatments of the ever popular ER-6f, Kawasaki has three options for the 2016 season. The iconic green Candy Lime Green version now features fairing sides in Metallic Spark Black fading to a lighter colour fairing lower. In a similar style, the Candy Persimmon Red model also has Metallic Spark Black fairing sides while the Metallic Carbon Gray option sticks to an all over single colour approach for maximum impact.

Like its ER-6n partner, each new for 2016 ER-6f comes with a coloured rear shock absorber spring and pin-striped wheels as standard. All the new colour options are available on ABS and non-ABS models.

New colour choices for popular Vulcan S

Making a huge positive impression at its launch, 2016 colour options for the Vulcan S have been eagerly awaited and the new line up is sure to delight. White is becoming a highly regarded colour choice so this option is one of three colour ways for the new season. Simple yet effective, the beige Urban City White option is joined by Metallic Matt Carbon Gray, creating an impactful and purposeful look. All the new colour options are available on ABS and non-ABS models.

Versys 650 offered in stunning new colour range

Machine of choice for those that truly appreciate middleweight versatility, the Versys 650 has an understandably loyal following. Crossing a city or a continent is no trouble to this accomplished parallel twin engine equipped machine and the colour options for 2016 are no less impressive.

With strong visual impact the stealth-like looks of the Metallic Matte Carbon Gray and Metallic Spark Black machine are indeed impressive. It is joined by two other colour options for the new season with a striking Candy Matte Orange version offered for the first time alongside the sleek and stylish Pearl Stardust White combined with Metallic Spark Black option. All the new colour options are available on ABS and non-ABS models.'
