Must Read Questions & Answers Before Buying Z650

Q. What is the maintenance cost of Kawasaki Z650?

Q. My height is 5'2 can I ride Ninja 650 or Z650. I can handle hero glamour bike as far as height is concerned.
  • Talking about the Ninja 650, the seat height has been dropped from an already reasonable 805mm to an even more accessible 790m! This should make the Ninja 650 easier to handle for shorter riders. On the other hand, Ninja Z650 seat height is lowered by 20mm to 785mm. The seat is also narrower at the front which makes it easier for shorter riders to put their feet down. The short handlebars are set forward, and the riding position is more aggressive. Moreover, we would suggest you take the test ride of the bikes to judge the ease and comfort.

Q. I currently own a Duke 390, 2018 model and my usage is mostly for commuting and weekend rides. Is Z650 a good upgrade keeping in mind the above?
  • I have a Z650 and had a Duke390 my advice is don't do it. The Duke is heaps more fun and corners 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. Since you have a Duke I already know comfort and soft suspensions are not your gig. I regret my upgrade so I hope you don't make the same mistake as I did. 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 the 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 MT-07 is a faster bike. More horse power and torque weights about the same and has a bigger community. It's resale value is also higher. 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. The Duke is a hard bike to beat if you exclude the reliability issues but the fun is much more rewarding then the flaws. I mean I had 3 cracked airboxes and 1 head gasket in 2 years with the duke. All covered by warranty and I get to hang out at the KTM shops. 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. It all depends on what you want. I would say MT-07 or TnT 600i if you are buying brand new for about the same price. 600i has highest hp out of the 3 and has adjustable suspensions. Mt-07 is same price as the Z and has more torque and hp. Z excels in the braking out of them all but I can't say I like it's handling and I'm 5'11 and feel cramped on it. I can flat foot on it and it fits my wife who is 5'8. 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. : By Kai | 7 months ago
  • Z650 is one bike that fits in all the squares and go ahead blindfolded in case you're a good practical biker. If you're interested in sound and heat and image concious with no brainers on handling and peace of mind you're not a Z candidate. : By Shekhar | 7 months ago
  • The Kawasaki Z650 has been designed to have a comfortable ergonomics for the rider. You can comfortably ride this bike in the city or for their daily commuting. : By Zigwheels | 7 months ago
Q. Does it's excust sounds like Z900?
  • No. But sound is for short term pleasure. All you need is performance and agility. Plus cost effectiveness. Z650 anytime over 900 : By Shekhar | 7 months ago
Q. Is it suitable for short rider - Z650?
  • It has a seat height of 785mm, it would be comfortable yor you. Moreover, we would suggest you to take a test ride in order to clear your all doubts. Click on the given link to get your nearest dealership details: https://www.zigwheels.com/dealers : By Zigwheels | 10 months ago
  • Yes its fine for as short as 5-5 I suppose : By Shekhar | 5 months ago
Q. Is it good for a person with height 6 - Z650?
  • The Z650 is powered by the same, updated version of the 649cc, liquid-cooled, parallel-twin engine as the Ninja, and outputs stand at 67PS and 65.7Nm of torque. Kawasaki claims bottom-end and midrange performance is better than before to improve the bike’s commuting abilities. The engine comes mated to the same six-speed gearbox as before, and now benefits from the addition of a slipper clutch to limit back torque from the engine. The bike feels surprisingly compact to sit on, which could be a hindrance for taller riders. Seat height is lowered by 20mm to 785mm. The seat is also narrower at the front which makes it easier for shorter riders to put their feet down. Taller riders should not have an issue either, as knee recess on the fuel tank are accommodating enough. The short handlebars are set forward, and the riding position is more aggressive than the ER-6n's upright ergonomics, it isn’t as aggressive as much as the Z1000. Adjustable clutch and brake levers are a welcome addition.

    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?
