As you can see, the Kawasaki ER-5 is good motorcycles, the performance is not bad for 500cc motorcycles, I just need a disc brake on the rear side from Kawasaki, but okay it's not hard to install another aftermarket brakes system. We know that almost all new modern motorcycles has already with single shock suspension on the rear side, but Kawasaki ER-5 just only equipped with dual shock breaker.

The key point from this article is "Kawasaki ER-5 is still worth to buy", and if you're looking for classic motorcycles with classic style likes Double cradle frame, dual-shock suspension, rounded headlamp BUT still powerful, Kawasaki ER-5 is one of the best motorcycles in it class, the Kawasaki ER-5 specs also has greats, but if you need more modern style bikes, you should better check the new Kawasaki ER series like ER6f or ER6n edition. Good luck for all of you.
