Z650L - ENERGIZE
POWERFUL & SMOOTH
The powerful, torque-free engine and lightweight chassis contribute to the sporty performance and versatility of the Z650L motorcycle.
Raw power comes from a new parallel-twin 649cc engine that packs a powerful torque and a good mid-range acceleration that is well suited for sport riding.
ASSIST & SLIPPER CLUTCH
The Assist and Slipper clutch gives a lighter feel to the lever and a back-torque limiting feature that helps avoid the rear-wheel hop during more rapid downshifts.
Featuring the latest iteration of Sugomi-inspired styling, the Z650L motorcycle has an even better appearance with a bright front, streamlined bodywork and sharper construction.
Sugomi-a design concept that combines bold lines with minimal bodywork to draw attention to functional elegance.
The sharp angles of the cowl, the chin spoiler and the meter cover were designed to give the bike an intimidating look, while the large shrouds had a muscular appearance. The LED headlight gives a distinct high-tech sound.
SLEEK & BOLD
The sharp Z pattern of the Z650L engine rear light (brake light) provides a bold declaration every time it lights up.
RIGID & LIGHTWEIGHT
The exposed frame helps provide light handling and adds to the technical picture of the Z650L motorcycle.

EYE CATCHING Z STYLING
The Z650L's head-turning style exudes practical elegance from its front cowl decorated with a meter cover to its sleek tail cowl. Complementing the sugomi design elements (crouching position, low-positioned head and upside down tail) that give the bike an instantly recognizable outline, its streamlined appearance is accentuated by slim, close-fitting bodywork designed to give the bike a compact, nimble image.
The special gull-arm swingarm offers room for a low center of gravity under-engine exhaust and improved handling. The horizontal rear suspension provides an perfect combination of sport-ride performance and casual riding comfort. The telescopic front fork is part of a balanced suspension kit, designed to provide progressive damping and a high degree of feedback on the rider.
For added convenience, both the clutch and the brake levers are 5-way adjustable to accommodate a wide range of hand sizes.
Dunlop Sportmax Roadsport 2 tyres — made of high-performance rubber — boost handling and maintain maximum grip.
LIGHTWEIGHT & CAPABLE
The overall light weight of the Z650L comes from a lightweight trellis frame with a low center of gravity for light handling and efficient low-speed maneuvering.
Ergonomics has a significant impact on agile management. The rider's triangle positions the rider "down" rather than "out" the bike to feel secure about the linked handling.
Low seat height and tapered seat shape provide simple foot positioning at stops while the upright seat offers a commanding ride posture, giving the rider a head-up visibility for a positive riding experience. Superior riding comfort applies to passengers with thick urethane and wide sides for high padding and support.
A careful footpeg position creates a comfortable knee bend for rider comfort.
The wide handlebar leads to fast low-speed maneuvering and improved leverage for high-speed cornering.* Please note-2020 model shown in the image.
