2019 Kawasaki Z650 Base
Stock Image: Metallic Flat Spark Black/Metallic Spark Black
Aggressive, supernaked Z styling comes to life in an ideal blend of sporty performance and everyday versatility. Featuring a lightweight chassis that contributes to its overall light weight* and a strong, torquey engine at its core, the Z650 naked sportbike is a compact middleweight unlike any other. With each ride, smooth power and nimble handling make the Z650 incredibly fun and easy.
*The Z650 is a significant 44.1 lbs. lighter than its European counterpart. This results in lighter and more responsive handling for the Z650.
- Ride Like You Mean It: Exciting performance for new and experienced riders alike
- Sporty Engine Performance: Raw power comes from a modern parallel-twin 649cc engine that packs strong torque and strong mid-range acceleration well suited for sport riding
- Assist & Slipper Clutch: A light pull at the lever (assist) and smooth shifting enables confident downshifts with minimal rear wheel chatter (slipper)
- Aggressive Z Styling: A bold front face. Minimalist bodywork. Technical styling. Make no mistake – this is the Z650 naked sportbike.
- Ergonomics: Everything built in and around the lightweight chassis of the Z650 naked sportbike is designed to become an extension of the rider.
