LEARNER APPROVED - EASY TO RIDE
The Ninja 650L is LAMS approved and still features an exciting Parallel Twin engine offers quick response, strong low-mid range performance and excellent fuel economy.
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.
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.
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.
41 mm telescopic front forks handles the suspension duties up front.
Horizontal Back-link rear suspension offers a progressive character. It delivers a balance of sporty performance and ride comfort. Rear suspension positions the shock unit and linkage above the swingarm.
Dual 300 mm front petal disc brakes deliver plenty of braking power. Dual-piston front calipers, master cylinder and brake pads offer superb brake touch.
The rear 220 mm diameter petal disc brake combines with the dual front petal disc brakes to enhances the overall braking performance and sporty appearance.
STYLISH 5-SPOKE WHEELS
Stylish star-pattern 5-spoke wheels contribute to light weight, while their high rigidity benefits handling. They also contribute to the bike’s light looks.
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.
NARROW SEAT. RELAXED FOOTPEGS
Footpeg position offers a relaxed knee bend, contributing to rider comfort. The narrow frame and engine create a narrow overall package, allowing the rider to keep his or her knees and feet close together.
SLIM FUEL TANK
Slim fuel tank is positioned low in the chassis. In addition to contributing to the light, dynamic styling, the shape is easy to grip with the knees. Resin fuel tank cap has no visible bolts. The stylish design also contributes to weight reduction.
The aggressive visage is complemented by slim, close-fitting bodywork designed to give the bike a light, nimble image that reflects its sporty performance.
Sharp dual headlamp design contributes to the Ninja 650’s aggressive face. Chin spoilers below the headlamps are similar in design to those of the Ninja ZX-10R, further reinforcing the Ninja family resemblance.
Fairings use black pieces to draw the eye in a horizontal line, emphasising the length of the bike to strengthen its supersport image. Compact front turn signals are built into the fairings.
A Compact, upswept tail. Slim rear seat and under-seat storage with space for a U-lock. LED taillights form "X" pattern when activated. Luggage hooks are built into the passenger footpeg stays, providing convenient tie-down points.
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 and remaining fuel range.
The windshield is adjustable, offering 3 positions with a total range of 60 mm. Wind protection with Ninja Style.
