Features

Handling

  • NIMBLE & RESPONSIVE: The Ninja® 650 motorcycle delivers the thrills with a perfected trellis frame design for agile handling and maneuverability.
  • SPORT GETS SPORTIER: Dunlop Sportmax Roadsport 2 tires contribute to the sportiest and most enticing ride yet.
  • STRONG FOUNDATION. AGILE RIDE.: A light and slim chassis features a trellis frame and horizontal back-link rear suspension for nimble handling and excellent traction response, resulting in a more direct connection to the road.

Power

  • EXHILIRATING & FUN: The sporty 649cc parallel-twin engine delivers smooth and responsive performance with exciting mid-range power that is felt in every gear.
  • PERFORM IN THE CLUTCH: An Assist and Slipper Clutch helps to put the power to the ground while providing an extremely light pull at the lever and reducing rear-wheel chatter during downshifts.

Styling

  • AGGRESSIVE & SLEEK: The Ninja® 650 motorcycle stands out with angular styling, aggressive headlights, an upswept tail cowl and a TFT color instrument panel.
  • SHARPER NINJA® STYLING: Sharp styling comes with aggressive bodywork and twin LED headlights for a sporty appearance. The windshield is positioned low, and is mounted flush with the upper cowl for a sleek design. A thick passenger seat not only provides a comfortable seat for the passenger but improves hip support for the rider.
  • COMFORT MEETS DESIGN: The upright angle of the windshield maintains sufficient wind protection for a comfortable ride when speeds pick up.

Technology

  • HIGH-TECH ELECTRONICS: TFT color instrumentation and Bluetooth® smartphone connectivity add high-tech elements to the ride and allow you to connect to the Ninja® 650 motorcycle like never before.
  • TAKE CONTROL FROM YOUR PHONE: Bluetooth® Smartphone Connectivity (using RIDEOLOGY THE APP*) connects you with your bike like never before, allowing you to view vehicle info, riding log, phone notifications, and general settings. *RIDEOLOGY THE APP is not intended for use during vehicle operation. Only use RIDEOLOGY THE APP when the vehicle is not being operated and it is safe to do so. All trademarks, registered trademarks, logos, and copyrights are the property of their respective owners.
  • USEFUL INFORMATION AT A GLANCE: All-digital TFT (thin-film transistor) color instrumentation gives the cockpit a high-tech, high-grade appearance and visibility. The screen’s background color is selectable (black or white), and screen brightness adjusts automatically to suit available light. Display functions include: digital speedometer, digital bar-style tachometer, gear position indicator, shift lamp, fuel gauge, odometer, dual trip meters, current and average fuel consumption, remaining range, average speed, total time, coolant temperature, clock, battery voltage, Kawasaki service reminder, oil change reminder and the Kawasaki Economical Riding Indicator.
