    re: Kawasaki ER6N

    i am still deciding though mostly i will be going with the 1.2l down payment option. but first have to solve the tax issue. then accordingly adjust. The hdfc guys give a .5% less rate though.

          7.xx% Rate of Interest is fantastic. I bought by D200 at 11% Rate of Interest 2 years back.
          BTW is it a Ninja ER-6N or just ER-6N??

                Its Kawasaki ER-6N. Its neither a Ninja nor a Z.
                In some countries Ninja 650 is called ER-6F, so they named the naked as ER-6N. Hence the name.

                    Nice to see Kawasaki bringing in more range of SBK's. Totally cool.

                      Hi guys,

                      Finally got my bike
                      After the terrible wait the beast is finally home. The good part at the beginning.

                      Here are few pics taken at the delivery...

                      The bike is too good. Is small though looks bigger.
                      The first impressions:
                      1. The bike is very silent.
                      2. The power delivery is uniform but very quick.
                      3. You need to be careful on the throttle as even a small twist unleashes a lot of power.
                      4. The saddle is more comfortable than my FZ16.
                      5. The ride is very smooth and i can say smoother than my fz.
                      6. The ground clearance is good enough as i havent scraped any breakers yet.
                      7. The brakes have less bite though it should improve over time.
                      8. You can cruise at 20kmph in 2nd gear which is the best part though not advised.

                      Now the small cribs:
                      1. Heat can be felt at lower speeds. guess thats it for now.

                      The bad part now.

                      The guys were not that enthusiastic at the delivery as we can expect. It was more of a formality than a delivery though it was the 1st er6n to be delivered in bangalore. asked me to pay for the left grab rail which is by default a must and they gave me the reason that as saree guard is given grab rail is too be paid for. Common guys. the saree guard is not a part of the bike parts when it was manufactured. the saree guard was just added to confirm to indian norms. And that doesnt mean that they will remove an accessory of the bike for approval and sell it to the same person at approx 1000rs. thats cheating. this is pathetic at the least part.

                      Then they give me a bike with fuel already at reserve. Whereas usually at most of the showrooms its tanked up or atleast 5L above reserve. The guys did fill up half the tank after making hulabula. When you pay 5.63l for a bike it doesnt mean we will pay for everything and absolutely doesnt mean I am rich. its hard earned money and if Kawasaki takes it for granted then its actually the wrong attitude. Why couldnt they be more cordial and customer oriented than taking for granted that as its a kawasaki I can just walk blindly and pay for everything they should give freely.

                      So only if raise a hue will they wake up or continue to be blind and arrogant. The bike is awesome but this episode has left a really bad impression for a day which was otherwise supposed to be awesome and memorable.

                      Guys will update you on the beast as i munch more miles....

                          Congratulations on your new ride. Clock a few kms and give a brief ownership review, will be following this thread as my next intended upgrade is Er6n. Please remove that terrible looking saree or whatever gaurd ASAP :banghead:. I like the looks of Er6n, understated yet elegant. Congrats once again.

                            Congratulations.

                            Much must be said about B'lore Kawasaki if they treat their customers like this.
                            I've heard the engine heat is something that is to be expected when upgrading from a single cylinder to higher capacity twins/inline fours.
                            In any case, eagerly awaiting updates

                            Query: Is the Sari Guard a compulsory accessory or added by choice? Also, are accessories like a higher screen available? Also, does the ER-6N run on normal fuel?
                            PS. This is my first ever post. Following this thread with great eagerness.

                              The er6n is actually delivered by ktm showrooms.
                              The bike is a new model and its temp reg. So until permanent reg its prudent to have the guard on. you can always use it for barbecues
                              I know a friend who sources accessories for sbks so i am getting it from him.
                              91RON fuel is recommended.

                              The manual recommends max 4k rpm till first 800 kms and 6k for the next 800.
