Old vs New ER6n

Has anyone ridden both the older and newer models of the ER6n? I'm considering buying one, but am wondering whether it's worth splashing out a little extra on a newer, post-2009 model, or if the older model is just as good.

The newer one does look better, but I don't know much more than that!

yep

I've ridden both. I had the old version from new for 3 years - now got '10 zx6.which i would suggest is a nice step up. Had the new version as a loan bike a few times. It depends on the price difference. I loved my er. Nippy and quick enough but friendly. New one is less vibey but it was never a major problem for me on mine. New one looks a bit better.

I'd say get the old one and spend the difference on any kit you need. Or a dirty weekend in London. Up to you. :-)

Cheers mate, I've been looking at an '06 model and a new model. If the old one isn't too different then I'll definitely get one of them. A good 2.5-3 grand difference in price, and that's a fair amount of kit! And the vibes don't bother me, after having 3 singles, I'm used to it!

which one ?

If the difference is that marginal then deffinately go with the old. The difference in price will pay for your running costs for a fair while and do any mods or repairs if required. Also less depreciation aswell I would think.:smile

Fuel Gauge

The fuel gauge isn't so important to me, to be honest, as long as I know tank range! Incidentally, does anyone know the average tank range? I've seen 150 miles posted in some places (including MCN) but up to 180 and 190 elsewhere.


And Jonny68, I didn't think of depreciation! Good point. I'll get an old one then, decided. And Lee, I'm taking out finance from a dealer, but thanks for the offer!

one of the most...

economical bikes out there (for it's c.c.). 15.5 litre tank, should get between 140-160 before reserve light comes on, and you've still got 3.5 litres to get you home on.Good on tyres, but eats chains so fit a quality set when you change chain and sprockets,and keep on top of cleaning / spraying with fs365.
