In 650cc category we have four distinct motorcycles and Ninja 650 is one of them. We have observed a very stable demand for Ninja 650 in India at it comes with attractive price. I hope our Ninja 650 in metallic spark black achieves the same success as the other variants have.” Kawasaki Ninja 650 has an upright riding position, low seat height and manageable power delivery.

Last year Ninja 650 was introduced in KRT edition and in blue colour edition, which were sold with a great success. The instrument cluster comprises of an analouge dial and a digital speedometer. Being powered by a 649cc parallel twin engine with DOHC, 8 valve system, it has maximum power output of 67bhp at 8000rpm and peak torque of 65.7Nm at 6500rpm. The engine is linked to a 6-speed transmission with a slipper clutch as standard. It is nearly 22 kgs lighter than the previous model which results in a far better power to weight ratio. Kawasaki Ninja 650 directly rivals the Honda CBR 650F in the Indian market, which is priced at Rs 7.37 Lakhs (Ex. Showroom, Delhi).
