Not one or two, but THREE new Kawasaki models
Approaching the 2012 season in the same way as the UK motorcycling community has been used to, Kawasaki has just announced three amazing new models for the coming season.
With a radical update to the already popular ER-6n, an equally confident redesign of the top selling ER-6f and a whole raft of styling and engineering changes to the much loved ZZR1400, Kawasaki dealer showrooms are set to be buzzing again in the coming year.
Both using a new “twin-pipe” style chassis, the ER-6n and ER-6f are sure to take the style, fun, easy concept of their forebears to a new level next year. The ER-6n with its gull-type swinging arm and eager stance will surely be the pick for city dwellers and lovers of the growing class of mid-capacity urban naked bikes.
Retaining its well-loved twin-cylinder, fuel-injected 649cc engine, the power plant has been further refined for even better response and smooth power delivery while ingraining riders with that feeling that they are riding a special machine – whether they be commuters, new to two-wheels or riders with a licence returning to biking.
“Faired” fans will be drawn to the ER-6f with even more aggressive sporting looks and just a hint of other successful sporting machines from the Kawasaki stable in its elegant lines. Equally narrow in terms of the revised chassis as its un-faired sibling – and with the same commendably low seat height - the ER-6f has been examined and updated across the board by Kawasaki engineers who have carefully updated areas that will enhance the ER-6f ownership experience without diluting what is reckoned by many to be the best machine in its class.
Finally for the experienced rider that is drawn to the Kawasaki reputation for performance engineering, the wholesale update to the ZZR1400 is nothing short of awe inspiring. Adopting a raft of relevant rider aids for the new season, the mighty ZZR is promised to come to the market with a further boost in power, stronger torque and acceleration and greater all round usability thanks to carefully selected rider aids.
KTRC traction-control is a first
on a ZZR, so too switchable power modes. Add a further upgrade to the K-ACT ABS braking and numerous chassis and suspension refinements and it is a safe bet that the ZZR legend will be extended further still by this awesome looking machine.
Marketing Manager for Kawasaki Motors UK, Michael Johnstone has no doubt that 2012 will see even greater interest in the Kawasaki range. “Already we are in a strong position with some great new models introduced over the past few years to wide critical acclaim.
The entire range for the coming year is truly comprehensive and it's great now to be able to confirm the rumours of some amazing new season models.
Like the many Kawasaki fans out there and our enthusiastic dealers, we look forward to 2012 with eager anticipation.”
