Sugomi Performance

Sugomi performance ensures that riding the Z650L is a treat for the senses. A responsive, torqueful engine character and nimble, lightweight chassis offer sporty riding excitement that new and more experienced riders alike will enjoy. Tuning of the 649 cm³ Parallel Twin engine focused on achieving a throttle response that balanced a powerful feeling and a quick-revving character. To optimise performance for everyday riding, care was taken to maximise low-mid range torque. When opening the throttle, riders will notice an extremely smooth and powerful engine character that offers both a high level of control when making minute throttle adjustments and a gratifying rush of acceleration in the lower rpm ranges. This tuning also benefits fuel economy.

Eye Catching Z Styling

From its front cowl adorned with meter cover to its compact tail cowl, the Z650L’s head-turning design exudes a functional beauty. Complementing sugomi design elements (crouching stance, low-positioned head and upswept tail) that give it an instantly recognisable silhouette, its condensed appearance is emphasised by slim, close-fitting bodywork designed to give the bike a light, nimble image that reflects its sporty performance.

Compact Multi-Function Instrumentation

Stacked instrument cluster features an easy-to-read layout. Analogue-style tachometer features a gear position indicator at its centre and sits atop a multi-function LCD screen. Gear position indicator increases shifting precision and confidence, while also lending to the Z650L’s sporty image. Tachometer offers three selectable display modes, allowing riders to tune their instrumentation to suit their preference. The tachometer also doubles as a shift up indicator, flashing at the set rpm. Riders can set the shift-up timing between 5,000 and 11,000 rpm in 500 rpm increments. The shift indicator function may also be turned OFF. LCD screen features a negative display (white letters on a black background), adding to the instrument cluster’s sporty, modern appearance. In addition to the digital speedometer and gear position indicator, display functions include: odometer, dual trip meters, fuel gauge, remaining fuel range, current and average fuel consumption, coolant temperature, clock and the Economical Riding Indicator.

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 strong low-end focus lends itself to sporty riding, but also translates to rider-friendly power characteristics that facilitate control and inspire confidence in new riders.

slide 2

Simple, sleek silencer design adds to the bikes's overall slim design. Under-engine muffler improves mass centralisation and lowers the bike’s centre of gravity. Muffler internal construction and catalyser layout ensure clean emissions that will pass stringent Euro 4 regulations. The muffler’s 33 mm diameter tail pipe also contributes to strong low-mid range performance and response.

slide 3

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 air also helps keep the tank, frame and other parts that contact the rider cooler, further increasing rider comfort.

slide 4

Horizontal Back-link rear suspension offers a progressive character. Compared to link-less type suspension, it delivers a better balance of sporty performance and ride comfort. Rear suspension positions the shock unit and linkage above the swingarm. This arrangement contributes to mass centralisation, while ensuring that the suspension is located far enough from the exhaust that operation is not affected by heat.

slide 5

Both the clutch and front brake lever are 5-way adjustable, able to accommodate a variety of hand sizes for increased comfort. Rider and passenger footrest feature rubber pads. Harder rubber combined with hollow centres were designed to reduce vibration felt through the footpegs.

slide 6

Ensuring the Z650L is not mistaken for anything other than Kawasaki Supernaked when viewed from behind, its sharp LED taillight lights up in “Z” pattern, contributing to the sporty image and the strong Z identity.
