Japanese motorcycle manufacturer Kawasaki has debuted the latest member of the 'Z' family at EICMA, the Z650. Like its older siblings, the Z650 has drawn design inspiration from the Sugomi design language.
The overall design resembles the Z900, Kawasaki's replacement for the popular Z800 globally. Also, the Z650 will replace the Japanese motorcycle manufacturer's ER-6n.
On the perspective of road presence, the Z650 looks more aggressive and features sharper lines compared to the model the motorcycle replaces globally. The Kawasaki Z650 is built on a new steel trellis frame, different than that of the ER-6n, but has an identical kerb weight of 187kg.
Focused on being a street bike, the Z650 features a 15-litre petrol tank and the seat height is measured at 790mm. The step-up seat and and the sharp tail light section add to the sportiness of the vehicle.
Power will be derived from the same engine that did its duty on the ER-6n, a 649cc, parallel twin liquid cooled engine that produces 68bhp and 65.7Nm of peak torque. The engine comes paired to a 6-speed manual gearbox and Kawasaki claims a mileage of 28km/l.
The new Kawasaki Z650 will be available in four colours such as: Candy Lime Green with Metallic Spark Black, Pearl Flat Stardust White with Metallic Spark Black, Metallic Raw Titanium with Metallic Spark Black, and Metallic Flat Spark Black with Metallic Spark Black.
