Kawasaki Z650 Performance

Kawasaki Z650 Performance

Like its predecessor, the superbly balanced Z650 offers sugomi performance and styling in a slim, compact middleweight package that features a 650cc Parallel Twin engine with strong low-mid range torque in a lightweight chassis. Engine refinements contribute to cleaner emissions and increased mid-range torque, new tyres offer lighter handling, and a redesigned tandem seat offers increased passenger comfort. Sharp new styling, highlighted by a new LED headlight and TFT instrumentation, gives this 2nd generation Z650 an even stronger sugomi presence.

Forty years after Kawasaki attracted international attention with the mid-capacity, high performance naked class Z650, the iconic name returns with an equally impressive machine.

Light, nimble and eye-catching, the new-for-2017 Euro4 compliant Z650 enjoys stunning looks thanks to its unique Kawasaki Sugomi design influences while lusty performance and impressive torque is willingly delivered by the compact 650cc parallel twin, water-cooled engine.

Successor to the highly popular ER-6n in the Kawasaki range, the latest mid-capacity machine in the formidable Z stable has a freshly created tubular trellis chassis and lightweight swinging arm each contributing to an ungraded and impressive handling package.

Relaxed yet sporty ergonomics align with telescopic front forks and a horizontal link rear suspension system revealing a machine equally at home on weekend sporting rides as it is enlivening the weekday urban commute.

Thanks to an assist and slipper clutch, plus a fun and convenient adjustable gear shift indicator light, the Z650 will win many devotees among the huge ER-6n fan base as well as extending the Z brand to welcome new territories.

Suited to a wide range of rider heights and experience levels, the new machine in the Z stable has the unique looks, assured performance and in-built durability the world of motorcycling expects of a machine christened Z650; a machine that is both Refined and Raw. And that is the essence of Z, you, your Z, the roads you ride, ridden your way.

For over four decades riders who know have relied on Z to deliver the thrill of motorcycling at its most intense and elemental. The no-compromise spirit of Z continues to evolve undiminished in every Supernaked Z.
