New Kawasaki ER-6n 2011

For about the same money as the KLX250S enduro, you can buy the sweetest liquid-cooled, fuel-injected, DOHC 8-valve 649cc parallel-twin engine in history powering a trellis frame, swingarm, chassis, and offset laydown rear shock suspension with 4.9 inches of travel lifted from the Ninja 650R, all in a light, responsive, exhilarating 441 pound package. At the mid six thousands MSRP (could that -6n refer to the price?) the ER-6n may just represent one of the best values on a Japanese street bike in the 2011 model year.

Although the styling is questionable at best and the headlight which is a spray painted black leftover Viper pilot helmet from the original Galactica should be knocked off the bike with a baseball bat before wheeling it out of the showroom, you can't help but love the ER-6n for its thoroughly astounding performance and phenomenal value for the dollar. The ER-6n is a 650cc naked bike that shows the rest of the class how to do it right.

However, that really is the only minor quibble that can be had with this otherwise sterling machine. What happened, Kawi, were all the good names taken? Huh? You go to the Emergency Room when you're 6-teen on it? What does the ER-6n moniker refer to anyway. The 2011 Kawasaki ER-6n has a really unfortunate name.
