Sharper Ninja Styling
Sleek bodywork includes a sharp front cowl with a strong resemblance to Kawasaki’s Ninja supersport models. The aggressive visage is complemented by slim, close-fitting bodywork designed to give the bike a light, nimble image that reflects its sporty performance.
Light Nimble Handling
Benefiting from a thoroughly redesigned chassis, the new Ninja 650 weighs in at 191 kg. Designed using Kawasaki’s new in-house analysis technology, the lightweight trellis frame and swing-arm were the key to the Ninja 650’s ultra-light handling.
Sporty windshield has three positions covering a total range of 60 mm.
Heat Management System
Innovative Kawasaki technology like the new radiator fan cover located behind the radiator directs hot air down and away from the rider, significantly increasing comfort when stuck in heavy traffic. Redirecting the air also helps keep the tank, frame and other parts that contact the rider cooler, further increasing rider comfort.
