About Ninja 650 [2018-2019]

The Ninja 650 was the most affordable ‘big bike’ when it first launched in India. It offered performed that excited without intimidating, and through Kawasaki’s tie up with Bajaj’s Probiking showrooms, the sales and service footprint was the largest for a big bike.

Cut to 2017, and the new Ninja 650 made its debut, this time through Kawasaki’s standalone showrooms. Gone are the motorcycles from other brands standing alongside it on the showroom floor, and also gone is the ‘big bike’ feel of the earlier Ninja 650. This new trellis frame has put the Ninja on a diet, and the smaller, lighter Ninja 650 feels more manageable as a result. There still is the naked option in the form of the Z650, but the Ninja 650 is completely deserving of the name if you consider the looks alone. It looks like it belongs next to the ZX-10R. There isn’t much difference in power and torque, but the sportier ergonomics and more compact riding position make you want to ride it harder.

It is currently available in two paint schemes: a simple yet fetching blue, and the Kawasaki Racing-inspired KRT edition. The green has been discontinued as of the start of 2018.

The Ninja 650 competes with the Benelli TNT600i, Honda CBR650F and the Hyosung GT650R, although they all cover a wide price range.

    • Excellent ergonomics for long distance riding
    • Handles well in the city
  • Could be Better

    • Spare parts are expensive
    • Service reach is a problem

BikeWale's Take

The Kawasaki Ninja 650 is a proven long distance as well as a daily commuting bike. It offers excellent performance along with great comfort, and that makes it one of the highest selling Kawasaki bikes in the country. But the ownership is a bit expensive as the cost of spares are too high.
