Starting with the Z650RS, the Japanese middleweight now gets a new paint scheme of Metallic Spark Black along with the existing Candy Emerald Green. Meanwhile, the Z900RS and SE are draped in Candy Tone Blue as well as Metallic Diablo Black/Metallic Red.
That said, the Z650RS has retained its 649cc parallel-twin liquid-cooled engine with identical power figures as before – 67bhp and 63.7Nm. The Z900RS range too has carried over the 948cc inline-four liquid-cooled engine with the output rated at 109.5bhp and 98Nm.
Even the underpinnings have remained unchanged throughout the range- telescopic front forks for the Z650RS and USD forks for the Z900RS and Z900RS SE. All three bikes get dual front discs and a single rear disc brake setup.
Kawasaki will launch the bikes very soon in the global market and we expect the 2023 Z650RS to make it to India as well.
