Kawasaki Z650 – Refined Raw
Special 18 Plate Pre Regd. Offer.

The Kawasaki Z650 is much more than an ER6 with a makeover. Redesigned from the ground up, with a switch to a steel trellis frame that weighs a mere 15Kg and sharp Sugomi styling of the bodywork that gives it the character and soul that allows it to be called a "Z".  All this whilst delivering a complete package that is as at home in town, country twisties or the open road.

As with the Ninja 650, the Kawasaki Z650 is a bike that will not only suit those new to motorcycling but has plenty to offer those that are experienced. This is a bike that will keep you interested and you will want to own for a long time to come.

This new lighter weight bike that has shed some 20 Kg (3 Stone!) of weight compared to the ER6 is so nimble and agile in its ability to deal with fast tight turns that you will want to find the long and twisty way home.

The wide flat bars of the Kawasaki Z650 move the riders weight forward into a sportier riding position than that of the Ninja 650, giving the rider better control through fast change in direction. 

The gutsy 650 parallel twin with it's lightweight slipper clutch delivers a smooth, inspiring but predicatble power curve that will soon build up the confidence of any new rider. A welcome by product of the latest fuel and power mapping has been the increase in fuel economy.

Restriction for A2 Licence compliancy is available on request.

This all new Kawasaki Z650 has seamlessly joined the rest of the Zed family. Isn't it time for you to do the same.  Give our sales department a call on 01508 471919 to book your road test and we will let the bike do the rest of the talking.

The Performance version comes with an Akrapovic exhaust system, a bikini screen and a colour coded seat cowl.

Sugomi Styling

The Z650’s aggressive Z Supernaked styling blends Sugomi design elements with a slim, light-looking package, resulting in a headturning design that conveys both excitement and approachability. 

Z Styling

From its front cowl adorned with meter cover to its compact tail cowl, the Z650’s head-turning design exudes a functional beauty. Complementing sugomi design elements (crouching stance, low-positioned head and upswept tail) that give it an instantly recognisable silhouette, its condensed appearance is emphasised by slim, close-fitting bodywork designed to give the bike a light, nimble image that reflects its sporty performance.

Ensuring the Z650 is not mistaken for anything other than Kawasaki Supernaked when viewed from behind, its sharp LED taillight lights up in "Z” pattern, contributing to the sporty image and the strong Z identity.  Compact, upswept tail cowl contributes to the Z650’s dynamic, sporty image. 

Compact Multi-Functional Instrumentation

Stacked instrument cluster features a large analoguestyle tachometer with a gear position indicator at its centre, sitting atop a multi-function LCD screen. 

Easy Manouverability

The Z650’s low weight and low seat height both contribute to manoeuvrability, whether walking beside the bike, or foot peddling in a parking lot. The easy-to-manage engine response and strong low-end torque further facilitate lowspeed manoeuvring.

Suspension

ø41 mm telescopic front fork handles suspension duties up front.  Horizontal back-link rear suspension offers a progressive character. Compared to link-less type suspension, it delivers a better balance of sporty performance and ride comfort. 

Rider Interface

The combination of a low 790 mm seat height and a slim chassis that makes it easy to reach the ground enables a wide range of riders to enjoy the Z650 with confidence. Both clutch and brake levers are 5-way adjustable, able to accommodate a variety of hand sizes for increased comfort. 

Power & Performance

Liquid-cooled, DOHC, 8-valve 649 cm3 Parallel Twin with fuel injection delivers smooth, responsive performance, especially in the low and medium rpm ranges. The strong low-end focus lends itself to sporty riding, but also translates to rider-friendly power characteristics that facilitate control and inspire confidence in new riders. 

Assist and Slipper Clutch

Assist & Slipper Clutch was developed based on feedback from racing activities. The clutch uses two types of cams (an assist cam and a slipper cam), offering two new functions not available on a standard clutch.
