Why I would buy one: It's a near perfect street bike. Easy and comfortable to ride, good handling, and exciting when you need it to be.
Why I wouldn't buy one: If you are tall or hefty or both, there just isn't enough room. And yes, it doesn’t give you much to brag about.
This, the Kawasaki Z650, is the non-fared, cheaper and a lighter version of the bike we quite liked - the Ninja 650. You can read more about it HERE.
As for the Z650, unlike its provocative name, it's quite simple in terms of design. This isn't a bike you would look at and admire for hours; if at all. And it also isn't something your riding buddies would drool over.
Now it is a smart looking bike, no two ways about that. It has this tiny peak that covers the straightforward instrumentation, a bulky tank with a few cuts and creases, and a sharp tail, which is smart looking but in the most generic sort of way. So, like we said, if it's attention you want on the road, this just won't do it. And by the way, you can only have it in green.
