Kawasaki Rides In The Updated Ninja 650

There is a price hike of Rs 55,000 for the new bike

  • New design makes it look like the Ninja ZX-6R.
  • Gets the same TFT screen as the Z650 and the Z900.
  • Only mechanical change reported is the new Dunlop Sportmax Roadsport 2 rubber.

The third of Kawasaki’s updated range has made it down to our shores as the Japanese brand brings the new Ninja 650 to India. While Kawasaki is yet to arrive on a definite price for the Ninja 650, the new bike will be priced between Rs 6.45 lakh and Rs 6.75 lakh (ex-showroom India). So, you will end up paying at least Rs 55,000 more for the BS6-compliant bike. The premium is equivalent to what Kawasaki would be demanding for the BS6 Z650 (which is Rs 56,000 more than the BS4 bike). What do you get for the extra money?

For starters, the new Ninja 650 looks nothing like its predecessor. Kawasaki has heavily reworked the design of the sports-tourer to make it look like the Ninja ZX-6R and the Ninja 400. Plus, you get the same smartphone compatible TFT screen that has arrived on the new Z650 and the Z900.

Here’s the company’s official press statement:
