Kawasaki dealerships across India are offering heavy discounts on the BS4 Z650. Discounts range from Rs 50,000 to Rs 1 lakh depending on the dealership. These discounts are been given to clear BS4 stocks before the arrival of the BS6 Z650.
The 2020 Kawasaki Z650 has been unveiled at the 2019 EICMA. For 2020, the bike comes with a full-LED headlight mounted on a new cowl, a TFT instrument console that’s smartphone compatible as well as a thicker and wider pillion seat for better comfort. Apart from this, the bike also comes with grippier Dunlop Sportmax Roadsport 2 tyres. The engine’s peak power output remains the same at 68PS at 8000rpm but the peak torque has gone down a bit. It produces 64Nm at 6700rpm against 65.7Nm at 6500rpm in the 2019 bike.
Underpinnings such as telescopic forks, rear monoshock, dual 300mm petal disc and the 220mm petal disc have all remained unchanged. That said, the bike weighs 3kg lighter than before, tipping the scales at 187kg kerb.

I have a Z650 and had a Duke390 . The Duke is heaps more fun and way better.The stock Z tires are outright dangerous in the rain and the suspensions are soft and comfortable which are not suitable for cornering. . I have it for about 1 year now and I am looking to trade it in. To be honest, I would rather get the Benelli 600i since that has 4 cylinders and adjustable shocks. The Z forks are not inverted and non adjustable. I would advise getting a used duke690 or if you have the cash go for the 790. I am not from India so I don't know the prices there but around the price of the Z you could check out the Yamaha MT-07 the only reason I didn't get it was because the MT-07 didn't have abs the year I was getting the Z and I feel that ABS is a must for me. The Z feels very cheap in the feel of the dash (no average speed of trip like the duke) it looks good but I prefer the Yamaha. It's brighter and cleaner. The Z dash is often too dim in the sun. By no means I am bashing the Z. It's a good bike. It's dependable and good on fuel but it feels like a sedan instead of a sports car if you want to make a comparison with cars. I had no problems with the z so far except I lowsided the day I picked it up because I was hitting a corner that I hit everyday on the duke the same way with new tires and wasn't used to the springy soft suspensions. Just a side note the Z also has no immoblizer so it can be easily stolen. I had to replace a key after I lost it and the shop I normally go to told me to go to Kawasaki for key programming but it turns out all Thailand assembled Kawasakis don't have immoblizers.
I am riding bikes for 2years in Agra. Than I sell my bike in last month. its a good bike
Awesome machine with a great punch at each rev
Weight reduction makes everything better. On paper, the Z650 is quite an improvement then. We bring you the real world results.
The bland but capable Kawasaki ER-6n has a successor, and it looks sharper. Question is, does it now go as well as it looks?
