Maintaining the “Fun, Style, Easy” concept of its predecessor, the superbly balanced and extremely exciting Ninja 650 features a 650cc Parallel Twin engine with a strong low-midrange focus and a lightweight chassis in a slim, middleweight package. Engine refinements contribute to cleaner emissions and increased mid-range torque, and new tyres offer lighter handling. Sharp new styling, highlighted by new LED headlights and TFT colour instrumentation, delivers a sportier appearance and even stronger Ninja family looks.
KTRC (Kawasaki TRaction Control)
Kawasaki's advanced traction control system provides both enhanced sport riding performance and the peace of mind under certain conditions to negotiate low-traction surfaces with confidence. Two modes allow riders to adjust settings to suit the riding situation and rider preference. Riders may also elect to turn the system OFF. For 35 kW kit models, KTRC offers one mode (plus OFF).
TFT Colour Instrumentation
The all new digital TFT colour instrumentation – a Kawasaki first in the 650cc class – gives the cockpit a high-tech, highgrade appearance. The new meter also offers additional features unavailable on the previous model.
Prioritising a sportier appearance, the redesigned windshield is now lower and flush-fit with the upper cowl. It is set at a more upright angle to offer the rider decent wind protection.
Increased Passenger Comfort
Rear seat with 4 thicker urethane (approximately 5 mm thicker at the centre, 10 mm thicker at the sides) and sides that extend more widely offers increased passenger comfort.
A Bluetooth chip built into the instrument panel enables riders to connect to their motorcycle wirelessly. Using the smartphone application “RIDEOLOGY THE APP,” a number of instrument functions can be accessed, contributing to an enhanced motorcycling experience.
Twin LED headlights, each featuring low and high beam as well as a position lamp, offer increased brightness.
New Tyres: Lighter Handling
New Dunlop Sportmax Roadsport 2 tyres contribute to lighter handling.
Sharper Ninja Styling
The Ninja 650’s sharper new styling gives it a sportier appearance and even stronger Ninja family looks. Its sleek and sporty design inspires confidence in riders.
