Motorcycle insurance bargains: Kawasaki ER-6n

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-6n.                    

Insurance group: 10
Engine: 8v lc parallel-twin, 6 gears
Power: 72bhp
Top speed: 130mph
Weight: 200kg          

The Kawasaki ER-6n is a great all-round package - fun, practicality and style all for a budget price. Whether you're fresh from your DAS or a seasoned pro you'll enjoy an ER-6. Plus it's only group 10 to insure.       

The 649cc parallel-twin engine was created just for this bike, and makes around 65bhp at the rear wheel. It doesn’t sound much, but it has a wide spread of torque that’s enough to make gear selection less crucial. It’s fun and up for some stunt riding, but the ER-6n will also mollycoddle new riders with it’s friendly power delivery.

The suspension and chassis are budget, but up to some back road scratching. The shock rebounds a little too quickly, but it never gets out of hand. Pillion grab handles, decent mirrors and a comfy seat are welcome for the modest price tag.
