Kawasaki had announced it will increase the prices of its motorcycles from 1 January 2021. And among that list was the Z650. The streetfighter is priced at Rs 6.04 lakh; an increase of Rs 10,000 over the previous model that was launched in April 2020.
Slight cosmetic changes
The Kawasaki Z650 is offered in the same Metallic Spark Black paint scheme which features a combination of black and green as before. However, as part of the update, it comes with green wheels.
No change in bodywork
The 2020 Kawasaki Z650 sports the same ‘Sugomi’ design that gives it an aggressive look. It features a sharp, low-slung full-LED headlamp, muscular fuel tank and a slightly upswept tail.
Powering the Z650 is a 649cc, inline two-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine. The motor churns out 67.3bhp at 8,000rpm and 64Nm at 6,700rpm. It comes mated to a six-speed transmission.
Apart from the full-LED headlamp and tail lamp, Kawasaki has equipped the Z650 with a 4.3-inch, TFT display with Bluetooth connectivity that can be paired to a smartphone via the Kawasaki Rideology app. The motorcycle also comes with a dual-channel ABS and rides on Dunlop Sportsmax Roadsport 2 tyres.
