Kawasaki ER6F – Ride Review

The Reason why it all has to be done is because my real ride has gone in for a full engine job which leaves me with this courtesy motorcycle from the workshop.

So the full story on my bike unfolds here in this video. It is a bit more of emotional meltdown to know that I had to get this done at this stage but I am not left with any other option before I get myself killed if it locks up while riding !!

As of now,  since you know the whole story about my ride – Here is the additional story of the courtesy ride. I have been on it for 550miles when I did this review but by the end I return it back it would already have gone well over a 800miles in a period of 8days and here is the real review.

I do not write what people do because I do not get paid to do these things but I get the pleasure to share these real opinions in the real world.  So for the full details of the why you should and should not buy a “Kawasaki ER6F” or rather also known as “Ninja 650” watch the video.

In all honesty, it is a city bike.  No hidden reasons but if you are light and small person this is the way to go and if you are riding it mostly in the city through the traffic.

I am myself not a big lad and too tall. At 178cms, I cant really enjoy this bike on the open roads or on the motorways.

“-“ The maximum top end is 110mph, the brakes are shabby – even though they are with ABS, Suspension feels really not meant to do two up on it ever and to add more – it is a beginners bike in all honesty.

“+” The good points, its a small, light(178kgs), compact, traffic friendly,  easy to filter through traffic, good mileage, thumper, two cyclinder parallel twin and Nifty Fifty bike.

Don’t expect anything more out of this bike – It is good  “A to B” bike ONLY.

The Spirit of Motorcycling

Motorcycling is all about the spirit of freedom – that connection few have with this machine, I call it machine but for some this is not a machine. This is never dying love, the endless connection from the moment they sit on it till the last minute of their life.

One such amazing documentary done by my friend “Inderjit Singh” brings me to share this to all of you. This is a third generation of people who have spent their live making this stay alive. It is not a Japanese, It is not a Italian, It is not even a German but a pure hard core Indian that has been built by many who learned it the way by doing it. The name in itself takes you to think of British maker but they left it long back in India and forgotten it until couple of decades when they started selling it back in UK again.

The story captured – see it for yourself and the connection is bigger than just a marketing gimmick in this one.
