Unfortunately, Kawasaki has stopped the production of ER5 series, but don't worry because Kawasaki has replaced the ER5 series into ER6n series, while ER5 comes with classic streetfighter looks, the all new Kawasaki ER6n has been born with modern style, 649cc engine capacity and the power/performance now better with 72.1 PS @8,500. So guys, if you looking for real ER5 streetbike series, you sould better search it at used bike stores, but if you want to try the new one, you can jump into Er-6n, both of bikes are the same gen, but I still loving the Kawasaki ER5 design, ER5 is one of the greatest 500cc motorcycles from Kawasaki, good luck.
