EXCITING PARALLEL TWIN ENGINE
Tuning of the 649cc 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.
ASSIST & SLIPPER CLUTCH
An Assist & Slipper Clutch helps to put the power to the ground while providing an extremely light pull at the lever and reducing rear-wheel chatter during downshifts.
LOW SEAT HEIGHT & EASY MANOEUVRABILITY
The combination of a low 790 mm seat height and a slim chassis that makes it easy to reach the ground enables a wide range of riders to enjoy the Z650 with confidence. The easy-to-manage engine response and strong low-end torque further facilitate low-speed manoeuvring.
RELAXED, SPORTY ERGONOMICS
A wide, flat handlebar and a relaxed, sporty riding position allow riders to fully capitalise on the Z650’s sporty street riding potential. Designed to both inspire rider confidence as well as put the rider in the ideal position for control.
Compact, upswept tail cowl contributes to the Z650’s dynamic, sporty image. The strong Supernaked design can be further emphasised with an accessory pillion-seat cover.
The LED taillight lights up in a “Z” pattern, contributing to the sporty image and the strong Z identity.
USEFUL INFORMATION AT A GLANCE
4.3” all-digital TFT (thin-film transistor) colour instrumentation gives the cockpit a high-tech, high-grade appearance and excellent visibility. The screen’s background colour is selectable (black or white), and screen brightness adjusts automatically to suit available light.
LIGHTWEIGHT TRELLIS FRAME
One of the key components to achieving the Z650’s lightweight (noticeable as soon as the bike is lifted off its side-stand), the trellis frame weighs only 15 kg and contributes significantly to the bike’s light, nimble handling.
