The other color for 2011 will be Diablo Black (same as 2009 in some markets)
Not sure what color the US will get.
Ride On!

Here in Thailand the tires are the same as 2010- Bridgestone Battlax BT021
I believe the tires may vary in other countries.
Ride on!

Options to buy a ER6n in Bangkok or other Cities in Thailand

I went down to Rama 9 Kawasaki Big Bikes showroom and they informed me there are 13 guys in a 2 to 3 month wait list.....
Thats for either the ER6n or Ninja model any color !

It was suggested I could go to Phuket or Korat to other Kawasaki Big Bike Dealers who had in stock but thats a long way to travel.

Not sure about the servicing if I buy away but I guess Korat is only 4 hours away on Bus. I love both colors I don't think I would be upset either way.

I guess second hand is another option !

Any advice be greatly accepted.

I was surprised I am 6 4 and the bike seemed ok for me, its been awhile since I rode and I usually had much bigger bikes but I think here in Thailand this is a great choice for the city/country style and the type of conditions.

Hope its not a 3 month wait :-)

You're lucky it's still available in Thailand. From what I've been told it's completely dead in the USA.

Yes, you should definitely get on the phone to some of the other Kawasaki dealers such as Korat, Nakhon Sawan, Chiang Mai, etc to see if they have what you're looking for in stock.

You can find a complete list of dealers and contact numbers here:

http://www.kawasakibigbike.com/showroom.html

( you have to click on the links for different parts of the country )

No need to travel out of Bangkok for service. Once you buy the bike you can have service done at any of the Kawasaki dealers in Thailand. There is no requirement for you to go back to the dealer you bought the bike from.

There are a lot of second hand Ninja 650R's and Er6n's up for sale these days so that might also be worth looking at. Check Baht Sold, ThaiVisa classifieds, Mocyc, etc.

Hope you can find what you're looking for! If you're taller than average you might find the Versys a more comfortable fit- have you tried one yet? It's basically an ER6n with upgraded suspension, a larger tank, more comfy seat and same engine but different cams and tuning for more torque and less top end.

For added range, better suspension and comfort of the Versys make it ideal for touring Thailand and beyond!

Ride On!

I imagine that other than some of the warmer states, not too many bikes are sold in the winter months in the US.

Define "dead"...
