Can you confirm the 2009 ER-6n seat height is 1.4 inches lower than the 650R? According to the Kawasaki specs page it has a 29.7-inch seat height compared to a 31.1-inch seat height on the 650R?

The 650r can be found cheaper but if the ER-6n is indeed lower I would prefer that for my very short girlfriend.

All the information I have indicates the ER-6n has a slightly lower seat height than the 650R.

Great review! I got my licence in April 2012, and decided to buy a used Kawasaki ER-6n from 2007. I'm 5 feet 2 inches, so I was a litt;e worried about the seat hieght, but I assure you that I can handle it really well. I bought the original lower seat from Kawasaki just to touch the ground a little bit better, and now it's perfect!

I would absolutely recommend this bike as a beginners bike! I've already brought mine on the track and was really satisfied there as well! It's a great all-around bike! Since mine already has five years (and many miles) I'm thinking about what bike to buy next! Has anybody tried the Kawasaki Z1000?

You should buy a Ducati Monster as Ducati's headquarters are right in your backyard. That's my dream bike :)

I rode this bike on a press trip and I was sooooo ready not to like it. I'm not a lean-over, hunker-down rider, how-fast-can-I-go kind of gal like Rachael Westfall, your new sportbike columnist. I like to sit up and watch the scenery go by, and it looked so much like the Ninja that if I didn't have to try it I wouldn't, but we were all trading and it was my turn. I was blown away. It looked too small, but I'm almost 5 feet 8 inches and it didn't feel small at all. I was sitting upright, but the cornering was great -- that sticky sportbike feeling. I could have spent more time on it, actually. Shhh. Don't tell.

I want to get my license in a few months. After a lot of looking around at all different kind of bikes including the Suzuki Gladuis, which matches the Kawasaki ER-6n...after much thought, the Kawasaki ER-6n looks way better. I was also worried that the bike would be too heavy for me or that the seat height would be too tall. I'm 5-feet-7 so now after reading your review there is now no doubt in my mind that this would be a perfect entry level bike for me. Great review!
