Kawasaki Ninja 650R
The Kawasaki Ninja 650R, also known as the ER-6f or EX-6, is a motorbike of Kawasaki‘s Ninja series that has been on the market since 2006. The R suffix is dropped from the name of the 2012 model. It is a middleweight motorbike with a parallel-twin engine that is intended for usage on paved roads. They offer contemporary appearance and features, as well as ergonomic sitting with a low center of gravity. Because the engine has a 180° crankshaft, the firing intervals are irregular, ranging between 0° and 540°.
In 2006, the 650R and its naked brother, the ER-6n, were released. The naked ER-6n did not on the market in North America until the 2009 model year. The Ninja 250R and Ninja 500R models previously existing in Kawasaki’s sportbike roster, which also included the Ninja ZX variants. Kawasaki upgraded the Ninja 650R for 2009, with new bodywork, mirrors, gauges, lights, and a new tune on the same 649 cc (39.6 cu in) engine. Along with chassis and minor adjustments, the 2012 Ninja 650 and ER-6n received an all-new bodywork design, as well as a new 2-piece seat assembly, 20mm larger handlebars, and a new tachometer above an LCD display that shows speed, trip meters, fuel consumption, and so on.
The new Ninja 650 also has an Economical Riding Indicator, which activates when the bike is using little gasoline. Kawasaki has upgraded the Ninja 650 for 2017 with a new frame trellis layout, which adds to the new reduced weight and improved handling. Its new sharper appearance has replaced the unusual side mount rear shock with a more conventional one, as well as a slipper clutch.
In Europe, the Ninja 650R is marketed as the ER-6f (“f” signifying faired), while the “naked” roadster is marketed as the ER-6n. Kawasaki released the ER-6n in the United States in 2009. The ER-6f varies somewhat from the Ninja 650R in that it comes equipped with passenger handlebars (as does the ER-6n). Furthermore, ABS brakes were made available for both the ER-6n and ER-6f. The Versys is an ER-6 variant that uses many of the same components as the ER-6. In many European nations, the bare 6n model has proven to be more popular than the ER-6f.
However, in other countries, including as Australia and India, the faired Ninja 650R has proved to be more popular than the un-faired ER-6n, becoming Kawasaki’s most popular’sports-tourer.’ The ER-6n model has been out of production since 2018, and has been replaced by the Z650 series.
