    Re: Kawasaki ER6N

    Hi,
    The bike is beautiful, perfect blend of Matt in conjunction of the gloss. .
    Many a congratulations on the new purchase.
    Sad to hear guys in the sales dept are only concerned with the delivery of the product. "No passion only commission I guess" is what their attitude reflects.
    have fun in The new ride.

      Re: Kawasaki ER6N

      Congratulations bro! Awesome bike and it looks super stealthy in all black! It's a lot more practical without the fairing of the Ninja 650. How much is it cheaper by than the Ninja 650? Also, I think you should write a mail to Kawasaki highlighting the grab rail incident. Really cheap on their part too charge for a part which obviously comes with the bike. What you could do is after registration you could ask them to keep the saree guard and give the grab rail in exchange. . It's so big they could use it as a window grill or something.

          coming from fz i always liked the naked ones as i like my bike to be nimble and street friendly. also i am not quite willing to part with money as the fairing tend to get damaged because of myself or miscreants. its hard earned money and most of my earnings go for loan repayment.

          @easy yeah we are deciding on the next course of action.

            My god!!! The bike just looks down right ugly with that saree guard attached.. please please remove the damn thing. It looks like a over grown splendour now.!!! .
            I loved its looks, especially the rear half of the bike, since its exactly the same as a Ninja 650..
            How much was the OTR Price of the bike in Bangalore??

                The Bike looks stunning in flesh rather than in Magazine and photos bro...Congrats on your new possession. Hope you got a nick name for him/her .
                Keep posting your experience after you clock a decent mileage.

                Its really sad to see the showroom guys not even giving a send-off after you have paid a hefty amount. Its not just for the money, its a big brand and really saddening to see such reception.

                    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...

                    [ATTACH=CONFIG]167104[/ATTACH]

                    [ATTACH=CONFIG]167108[/ATTACH]

                    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....
                    Congrats on the new bike. Did you remove the saree guard yet? It looks too bad on such a bike, just my opinion.

                      This is kind expected in our country, customer service is something we simply don't care or want to understand, right from buying undies to buying Harleys, its the same story. Forget it, enjoy the naked power!

                                One question did they make you pay for Saddee guard, as they should not because it is a mandate for RTO
