Kawasaki ER-6N Sublime: The chic cafe-racer from Bali 1




Smoked Garage’s Indonesian workshop took an ordinary, somewhat boring 2006 Kawasaki ER-6N as the basis for their next creation. After stripping the bike of everything unnecessary, they began to create a cafe racer, which should not only look cool but also ride accordingly.

Customers left the 649 ccs inline “2” untouched, confining themselves to the installation of a custom exhaust system “two-in-one”. Instead of the native “telescope”, the bike was equipped with a “shifter” from Suzuki GSX-R1000 and the rear mono shock absorber was replaced by Ohlin’s component. The brakes were also dealt with severely: the guys scrapped the original components and installed Tokico radial calipers in front, working with 320-mm discs, and the main brake cylinder Brembo.

Original wheels had no place on the Kawasaki ER-6N Sublime. Instead, the bike got 17-inch spoke wheels with Pirelli 120/70 tires in the front and 180/60 in the back. The steering wheel is gone, giving way to clips, providing a more sporty riding position. The rear subframe was also replaced with a custom one.

For the final touches, Kawasaki ER-6N Sublime was equipped with an aluminum tank, new wings, and radiator shell, as well as full LED headlights, and the round headlight was covered with an elegant mini fairing.
