Kawasaki has revealed the 2020 Ninja 650 that is expected to be launched in India sometime next year. The motorcycle gets a redesigned fairing and twin, full-LED headlights which give the Ninja 650 an aggressive looks similar to the supersport Ninja ZX-6R. Meanwhile, the turn indicators are integrated on either side of the fairing.
The 2020 Kawasaki Ninja 650 also sports a newly designed fuel tank which is now more muscular. The added bulk on the tank is likely to provide the rider with extra thigh support. On the feature front, the new Ninja 650 comes with a 4.3-inch full-colour TFT screen with Bluetooth connectivity. The screen can be paired to a smartphone via a dedicated app which also provides the motorcycle status and ride data. The Ninja 650’s 649cc, parallel-twin motor is now BS-VI/ Euro 5 compliant which has resulted in a 1.7Nm decrease in torque. However, power output from the motor remains the same at 67.2bhp.
The bike employs 41mm telescopic forks upfront and a preload-adjustable monoshock at the rear. Braking duties are taken care of by 300mm disc brakes at the front and a single 220mm disc brake at the rear. Kawasaki is offering the Ninja 650 in three colour options. There is the KRT Green, Metallic Black with green highlights and Pearl Blizzard White also with green highlights.
