Kawasaki Ninja 650R (ER6 F)
« on: July 07, 2016, 11:41:27 pm »
Hi guys and girls.

Just wanted to hear any comments from anyone about the Kawa Ninja 650 R.

Do anyone have some positives or negatives about the bike plse?
Wanna buy one for my wife. My impressions are quite good. Ideal for the wife I think..although she is a new rider.

Perhaps some issues to look out for 2nd hand?

Appreciate it thanx  ;)

We had one, a 2006 model, if I recall. Bought it for my wife to learn on. It is super easy to ride, very forgiving but yet enough grunt to put a smile on your face if ridden enthusiasticly ( it had a aftermarket Arrow pipe :drif:)

Ours had crash bobbins on and I can recommend that as the fairing can easily get damaged when the bike is dropped- which will happen :deal:

In the year and a bit we had it we had no issues at all :thumleft:

I own a ER6n. I think it is a brilliant bike but my wife hates it. She does not like the riding position. Pegs too high for her I think.
Good brakes. Nice strong motor. Lekker low down torque.

Go a better deal, and a nicer specimen as well.. Looks good as new!

The wife will still learn to ride...from my point of view...its just awesome!

So comfortable, well balanced, brilliant looks..and enough power when needed.

Simply great!!!!
