Kawasaki Z650RS [2021-2023] Summary

The new Kawasaki Z650RS has entered the Indian two-wheeler space to compete against the likes of CB650R and the Royal Enfield Interceptor INT 650. This new middleweight, which occupies the space between the Honda CB650R and the Royal Enfield Interceptor INT 650, joins the Ninja 650, Z650, Vulcan S, and the Versys 650 in the Japanese manufacturer’s Indian portfolio.

The new Z650RS shares its 649cc, parallel-twin, liquid-cooled motor with the Ninja 650 and the Z650. Linked to a six-speed gearbox, the engine is tuned to deliver 67.3bhp of power at 6,700rpm and 64Nm of peak torque at 8,000rpm.

The Kawasaki Z900RS-inspired styling brings a single-pod round headlight with a chrome surround, retro-style twin-pod instrument cluster, a round shape for the rear-view mirrors, a curvy design for the fuel tank, a flat seat, and an underbelly exhaust. The motorcycle rides on split-style alloy wheels that are wrapped in tubeless tyres.

The new Z650RS is available in two colours – Candy Emerald Green and Metallic Moondust Gray. The Candy Emerald Green paint features golden-coloured alloy wheels while the Metallic Moondust Gray gets black coloured units.

The feature list on this retro styling Kawasaki comprises full-LED lighting and a semi-digital instrument cluster. The rider aids on the Z650RS include a dual-channel ABS, and an assist and slipper clutch mechanism. The motorcycle is built around a trellis frame, and it uses 41mm telescopic front forks and a horizontal back-link mono-shock to handle the suspension tasks. The braking duties are performed by twin 300mm rotors with dual-piston callipers at the front and a 220mm single disc with a single-piston calliper at the back.

Kawasaki Z650RS [2021-2023] Review

  • Good Things

    • Stunning design
    • 650cc engine has plenty of torque
    • Easy to ride in city traffic
  • Could be Better

    • Expensive to maintain
    • Limited sales, service reach

BikeWale's Take

The Z650 RS is a modern-retro middle-weight motorcycle from Kawasaki. It was developed for riders who want retro styling, great performance and good riding comfort. The Z650 is also equipped with some good features like full colour TFT display, ABS and LED lights. But this bike is quite expensive to maintain. Plus, Kawasaki has limited sales and service reach.

      It's beast bike

      It's a really amazing bike.
      It's a really amazing bike. The one criticism is stand of this bike is too short and awkward to get down than others. This bike is very good for beginners who are trying to purchase 1st super and middleweight bikes. The seat of the z800 is so comfortable and big. By this, you get very nice attention from the public. I recommend this bike to those who need a middle-weight bike and high power.
      The experience of the Kawasaki showroom is not so good. Because some of the manager is not responsible for their job. In riding Experience, no one can beat this in this price section. Z650RS gives a very nice mileage near about 18 - 21 km/h. It's so good. It's look similar to the ROYAL ENFIELD GT650. Not needed to quickly services & maintenance but maintenance costs will be very high.
      Pros :
      • Good mileage
      • Big seat
      • Big stand
      • Looks so amazing
      • Good for offloading
      • High sound
      Cons :
      • High service cost
      • Heating issue
      • Small height

      It's been a week almost since I have bought this beauty home.
      Grinding to get to 1000 km for the first service to be done, for now.
      The overall torque i.e the low and mid are great. Riding position is very comfortable, the engine feels very refined and premium.
      The Slipper clutch makes the shifting experience effortless. The ground clearance is not much of a problem riding in Vashi, as Vashi's inner roads are fully infested with Speed and none of the speed breakers has kissed the bottom of my low ground clearance bike.
      I will writting another review after the first service is done.

      This is my honest review
      First, i used Ducati Monster, I mean still using
      So my plan was to buy Ducati Scrambler.
      But I think again about my past service expense of my monster too much, I go for a test drive of scrambler 800, and it was good. then I test drive this little Beast Kawasaki Z650rs.... Simply Wow.
      So I bought this Beast.
      Compare to Scrambler 800 it was too good for riding
      The sitting position is normal I mean 90-degree angle,
      But it's not possible on Scrambler.
      And the most beautiful thing about this bike is You won't notice any Engine Heat, But with Scrambler 800 you can make Amlet on your toes.
      Easy to ride in all traffic conditions.
      Looks too good after Removing the Front Number plate Holder and Saree Guard.
      If anyone thinking to buy this little beast...Just Go for it. You won't feel any regret after purchasing this Beast, it's My Honest Review, Thank You All.

      Tips for other riders

      Don't use too much torque, it's good to ride between 3000 to 4000 RPM in all Gear, Before Ending your ride Stay Neutral For 30 seconds Without Turning off the Engine, so the radiator Does the Work of cooling.
