Kawasaki has launched the new 2011 ER-4n, a stylish naked-sport bike in Japan. There are several types of motorcycle licenses in the Asian country, and the “ordinary” license is valid up to 400cc engine displacement. In response to such market demand, Kawasaki started the sale of the brand new ER-4n, a naked bike based on the 2011 Ninja 400R.
“Kawasaki started the sale of the ER-4n, a naked sport-model motorcycle that gives expression to the stylish rider with a unique design that integrates a sharp, urban sensibility with masculine strength,” a company statement reads. The ER-4n has a liquid-cooled, 399cc parallel twin-cylinder engine which has plenty of torque at low and mid-range revs. The engine features fuel injection and offers a great throttle response. The short silencer is located under the engine and as a result the bike has a great concentration of mass and a low center of gravity. With its upright riding position, the naked machine is both comfortable and nimb. The ER-4n has a unique front face with twin vertical headlights, a forceful radiator and a sharp-cut tail cowl.
