About Z650 [2018-2019]

Kawasaki has introduced the Z650 to modernise and reposition the ER-6n in its 2017 line up. The Z650 will sit above the Z250 and below either the Z800 or the Z900 in Kawasaki’s ‘Z’ line of motorcycles.

The Z650 appears to be inspired by the Sugomi design of the Z1000. According to Kawasaki, its condensed appearance is emphasised by slim, close-fitting bodywork. The bike also uses an instrument cluster featuring an analogue-style tachometer with a gear position indicator at its centre, sitting atop a multi-function LCD screen, similar to the new Ninja 650. The new sharper styling along with the aggressively raked tail makes this motorcycle appear more like a sport-naked than a naked-tourer.

The chassis and swing arm have also been redesigned, and the monoshock has now been moved to a more conventional position above the swing arm as opposed to the previous model’s offset orientation.

While the parallel twin engine still displaces 649cc, it is now Euro IV compliant. The power output has been dropped to 69bhp from 71bhp, the engine according to the company has been tuned to offer better low and midrange torque. The six-speed transmission also gets a slipper clutch. The manufacturer states that, it is also 6.8 per cent more fuel efficient than the older engine. The Z650 is also 19 kilogram lighter than the ER-6n.

Kawasaki Z650 [2018-2019] Expert Opinion

  • Good Things

    • Comfortable riding position
    • Easy to ride in the city
    • Sports a refined engine
  • Could be Better

    • Limited service reach
    • Could get a better instrument cluster
    • Too compact for taller riders

BikeWale's Take

The Z650 has compact dimensions and a comfortable riding position which makes it easy to ride in the city. It also comes powered by a refined engine and gets a good suspension and braking setup to complete its package. However, the bike’s compact size could make it uncomfortable for taller riders.

    No one, who is hungry for performance and power, is gonna be disappointed that he/she spent 6.95l (on-road kochi) on this machine. Suited for commuting for following reasons: 1) sharp and easy handling to chisel through traffic.2) enough torque in low rpm to go at 10kmp
