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-mid
range 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.
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).
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.
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.
Twin LED headlights, each featuring low and high beam as well as a position lamp, offer increased brightness.
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.
New Tyres: Lighter Handling
New Dunlop Sportmax Roadsport 2 tyres contribute to lighter handling.
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.
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.
ABS (Anti-lock Brake System) ensures stable braking performance by preventing wheel lock during braking.
HORIZONTAL BACK-LINK REAR SUSPENSION
Horizontal Back-link Rear Suspension arranges its shock unit horizontally, greatly contributing to efficient use of space and mass centralisation.
ASSIST & SLIPPER CLUTCH
Based on racing technology, the Assist & Slipper Clutch acts as both a back-torque limiter and a self-servo mechanism that enables a lighter clutch lever pull.
3-Mode KTRC (Kawasaki TRaction Control), Kawasaki's most advanced traction control system, offers a selection of modes to suit a variety of riding situations, from sport riding to touring.
DUAL THROTTLE VALVES
Dual Throttle Valves offer increased power and greater ease of use care of a second set of ECU-controlled throttle valves.
ECONOMICAL RIDING INDICATOR
The Economical Riding Indicator is a mark appearing on the instrument panel to indicate favourable fuel consumption, encouraging fuel efficient riding.
Smartphone connectivity contributes to an enhanced motorcycling experience by enabling riders to connect to their motorcycle wirelessly.
