PARALLEL-TWIN ENGINE

Exciting Parallel Twin engine offers quick response, strong low-mid range performance and excellent fuel economy. Liquid-cooled, DOHC, 8-valve 649 cm³ Parallel Twin with fuel injection delivers smooth, responsive performance, especially in the low and medium rpm ranges. The settings result in a performance that favours speeds most used in everyday riding. Corner pick-up is excellent: the powerful mid-range delivers a satisfying surge of acceleration and the flat, step-free torque curve and smooth engine response let riders open the throttle with confidence – at any rpm with class leading maximum torque of 59.0 N-m.

ASSIST & SLIPPER CLUTCH

The clutch uses two types of cams (an assist cam and a slipper cam), offering new functions not available on a standard clutch. This allows the total clutch spring load to be reduced, resulting in a lighter clutch lever pull when operating the clutch. When excessive engine braking occurs – as a result of quick downshifts (or an accidental downshift) – the slipper cam comes into play, forcing the clutch hub and operating plate apart. This relieves pressure on the clutch plates to reduce back-torque and prevent the rear tyre hopping and skidding.

COOL RIDING

Simplified cooling system routes coolant through the engine cases to the cylinder and head to reduce external plumbing. Patented radiator fan cover located behind the radiator directs hot air down and away from the rider, significantly increasing comfort when stuck in heavy traffic. Redirecting the heated air also helps keep the tank, frame and other parts that contact the rider cooler, further increasing rider comfort.

TRELLIS FRAME

One of the key components to realising the Ninja 650’s weight is the trellis frame. The frame weighs only 15 kg and contributes to the bike’s light, nimble handling. The lines of the frame were made as straight as possible, and when bends were necessary their angles were made as small as possible, resulting in a design that disperses stress extremely well. Kawasaki's new in-house analysis technology was used to precisely determine the necessary pipe diameter, length and wall thickness to deliver the ideal lateral and torsional rigidity.

TELESCOPIC FORKS

41 mm telescopic front forks handles the suspension duties up front.

INSTRUMENT PANEL

Analogue tachometer flanked by warning lamps, a gear position indicator combined with a new shift up indicator lamp, multi-function LCD screen, odometer, dual trip meters, fuel gauge, remaining fuel range, current and average fuel consumption, coolant temperature, clock and the Economical Riding Indicator. The tachometer’s needle changes colour to indicate (rider-selectable) shift-up timing.

ADJUSTABLE WINDSHIELD

The windshield is adjustable, offering 3 positions with a total range of 60 mm. Wind protection with Ninja Style.

slide 8

ERGONOMICS

The Ninja 650’s fine-tuned rider triangle provides both control and comfort. The low seat (790mm) and the bike's overall design ensure it is easy to reach the ground. Separate, raised handlebars mounted to the upper triple clamp offer control and comfort; they put the rider in a good position for sport riding. Mounting clamp for the handlebars is rubber-mounted to reduce vibration transmitted through the handle grips. Stylish upper triple clamp features strength-reinforcing ribs on its upper surface.
