The rest of the supersport more or less remains the same

2023 Kawasaki Ninja 650 Launched

In an attempt to make the Ninja 650 an even safer supersport, Kawasaki has updated the fully faired bike for 2023 with new tech. The 2023 model comes bearing a price tag of Rs 7,12,000 (ex-showroom), Rs 17,000 more than its predecessor.

What’s new?

The 2023 Kawasaki Ninja 650 comes packed with a new traction control (TC) system that comes with two modes. While Mode 1 is meant for slight intrusion, Mode 2 butts in earlier whenever a wheel sleep is detected. Apart from that, riders can also choose to switch the TC system off.

What’s unchanged?

Apart from the above mentioned feature, the Ninja 650 remains unchanged mechanically and cosmetically. It gets the same aggressive and sharp body design. The 649cc parallel-twin liquid-cooled engine, too, remains the same, producing 68PS and 64Nm. It is paired to a six-speed gearbox along with a slip-and-assist clutch.

In terms of features, the Ninja comes packed with a bunch of modern day tech including a full TFT instrument cluster along with smartphone connectivity. Apart from this, the supersport is now available only in one colour option – Lime Green – whereas the other black shade is missed out with the new update.

Rivals

While the 650cc segment is not shy of motorcycles in India, the Kawasaki Ninja 650, however, has only one direct rival, which is the Honda CBR650R. That said, the Honda costs Rs 9,35,441 (ex-showroom Gurugram), significantly more expensive than the Ninja, even after the latter’s price hike.

Now that the Ninja 650 has received the TC update, expect its naked sibling, the Z650, to get the same feature soon.
