Motorcycle insurance bargains: Kawasaki ER-6f

Motorcycle insurance costs are an important consideration for any bike buyer. That's why MCN is highlighting some of the best cheap-to-insure motorcycles out there. This time it's the Kawasaki ER-6f.                                          

Insurance group: 10
Engine: 649cc 8v parallel twin, 6 gears
Power: 71bhp
Top speed: 130mph 
Weight: 204kg                    

The Kawasaki ER-6f a rare package of fun, practicality and affordability, which is great for novices and experienced riders alike. Its sporty, Ninja looks prove budget doesn’t have to mean bland, while revisions to the 649cc parallel twin engine have eradicated most of the niggles that held the old model back. Plus it's only group 10 to insure.    

Kawasaki took on board criticism of the old ER-6fs vibey engine, made some revisions and came up with a much improved 649cc parallel twin. It has smoother throttle response, especially below 4000rpm and a surprisingly accessible, wide band of power. It will sail past a ton with no problems, and needs to be hammered to reach its limits (in a good way). You'd be surprised by how well it goes. 

This is not just an ER-6n with a fairing thrown on. For a budget bike, the ER-6f is a very desirable and sporty-looking machine. From the front it looks like a small ZX-6R, thanks to its flush indicators and twin headlamps. Adding to its good looks are the neat underslung exhaust, side-mounted shock and petal shaped brake discs.
