Kawasaki Ninja 650 Latest Update

Kawasaki has launched the 2023 Ninja 650 in India and the mid-displacement sports tourer is now safer, but also carries a reasonable price hike. To know more about the bike, head to our main story.


Kawasaki Ninja 650 Price: 

The Kawasaki Ninja 650’s price is Rs 7.12 lakh (ex-showroom, India). The bike is available in one colour: Lime Green


Kawasaki Ninja 650 Features: 

The Ninja 650  features twin LED headlights and a colour TFT display. Its 4.3-inch display gets Bluetooth connectivity via the Kawasaki Rideology app. It now also gets the Kawasaki TRaction Control System (KTRC). The new Ninja 650 gets a new bodywork designed similar to Kawasaki’s new Ninja motorcycles like the Ninja 400 and Ninja ZX-6R. The pillion seat gets better padding. The Ninja 650 is available in one colour: Lime Green.


Kawasaki Ninja 650  Engine: 

Power comes from a BS6-compliant 649cc liquid-cooled parallel-twin motor producing 68PS at 8000rpm and 64Nm at 6700rpm, working in conjunction with a six-speed gearbox with a slip-and-assist clutch. The engine is reined in by a traction control system, but there are no riding modes.

Ninja 650 Expert Review

India’s first modern big bike came around in 2011 in the form of the Kawasaki Ninja 650R. Over the course of the following nine years, the R suffix has been dropped, the ergos have gone from an out and out sports tourer to a comfy sports machine, and the engine has become a lot more exciting as well. For 2020, Kawasaki has given the middleweight faired bike its fair share of updates. What difference do they make to the bike and is it still a wise choice for someone stepping up from a sub-400cc motorcycle?


Design and Features

You will be forgiven for mistaking the Ninja 650 BS6 with the Ninja ZX-6R from afar. Kawasaki’s scowling face has made its way onto the middleweight faired motorcycle now. Nevertheless, it has got a prominent 650 logo sprawled all across the fairing with the honeycomb graphics playing off well on the bike. This Lime Green/Ebony colour scheme is the old KRT livery that one can find on Kawasaki’s WSBK title-winning ZX-10RR machine. Two more colours are on offer -- a white/black and the new KRT scheme -- but we rather fancy the Ninja 650 in the colours that our test bike comes in.


The small winglets underneath the new LED headlights are a neat touch, giving it a slightly fanged appearance. The windshield isn’t adjustable anymore but that should hardly be a cause for concern on a motorcycle with sporty intentions. There are neat air scoops on both sides of the bike for better aero efficiency. But they seem rather small to make that much of a difference, especially in everyday riding situations. 

Its tail is neat with a slight taper to it. What sticks out like an eyesore are the mandatory bits that the bike needs -- like the pillion grab rails and the saree guard -- to pass the Indian homologation laws.

Kawasaki’s plastics and build quality is impeccable with every panel put together well. No rattles or squeaks are heard at any given time. Even the switches have a nice positive click feel while operating them.

Engine and Performance


Kawasaki Ninja 650 BS6


649cc parallel-twin, liquid-cooled, DOHC, 4-valve per cylinder


68PS @ 8000rpm


64Nm @ 6700rpm

The output difference between the current and the BS4 model of the Ninja 650 isn’t much. There is a drop of 1.7Nm, which is hardly a cause of concern for the new bike. And despite the changes made to the motor to make it run cleaner, the Ninja 650 as a whole has not gained a single kilo, still tipping the scales at 196kg. 


Kawasaki Ninja 650 BS6


4.80 seconds

30-70kmph in 3rd gear

2.73 second

40-80kmph in 4th gear

3.32 seconds

The Ninja makes use of all of its 64Nm to make sure you are up to triple-digit speeds quickly. Our test figures of the older Z650 indicate the BS6 Ninja 650 is 0.32 seconds slower to a hundred, which should hardly be any bother. What you are now getting in return is a raspy exhaust note to accompany your high speed thrills. The lack of aural delight from the older versions of the very same engine made it feel quite mellow and vanilla, but now it almost sounds like you are astride a punchy L-twin Ducati motor.

The motor still has a lot of those Japanese twin sensibilities. Trundling around town in higher gears is possible, with the motor capable of sticking around 45kmph in sixth gear. You can cleanly pull away from 2000rpm with the heap of the drive arriving shortly thereafter at 3500-4000rpm. The engine pulls cleanly all the way to the 9000rpm mark, post which the power trails off a little bit and you then hit the 10,000rpm limiter.

As you exit the city limits and get on to the highway, you can have the Ninja 650 singing beautiful symphonies while rumbling along at 120kmph. There is a bit of harshness from the motor at around 6000rpm, which coincidentally is the engine speed when you are clocking around 100kmph. But this disappears if you either speed up or ride a bit more sedately.

Kawasaki Ninja 650 BS6: Road Test Review

If you choose the latter, that would bode well in saving fuel on your journey. The Ninja 650 returned 30.17kmpl on the highway. Couple that with that gigantic 15-litre fuel tank and technically, you could go 450km on a single tank full of gas. But come on, you don’t buy the Ninja 650 just for its highway cruising practicality -- that’s reserved for the Versys 650. Hence, if you do decide to increase your pace, we guess it should go around 350-400km on a single tankful of gas. It tends to sip more fuel in the city though (19.64kmpl).

If we had to nitpick here it would be the quality of the gear shifts. The six-speed transmission is unchanged from the older motorcycle with a slip-and-assist clutch present. The shifts are all positive, with no false neutrals experienced whatsoever. However, is feel a bit of a letdown is that the slickness of the older generation Ninja has gone missing. It feels a little clunky and a lot more pronounced on the Z 650.

Braking and Handling

One word to summarise the handling of Ninja 650 is ‘rewarding’. The riding posture sets you up for a delightful cornering experience with the mechanicals backing up that feeling. There is very little hesitation from the bike to drop into a corner. It isn’t sudden or nerve wracking, rather like a good teacher training you for sharper bikes that the future might hold for you. 

The slightly committed stance means you have to be extra cautious when taking a line for the corner ahead, being well prepared for any unforeseen hazards that might come your way. Fortunately, the bike is so well set up that the suspension can absorb minor bumps that might have arisen on your favourite twisties or you can just sit the bike up easily to avoid going over them altogether with little fuss. 

At 1,410mm, the wheelbase is long enough to provide ample cornering stability with a good amount of traction to be found from the new Dunlop Roadsport 2 tyres in the dry. You do have to put in a bit of an effort in hustling the bike from one side to the other, but the experience is highly rewarding. 

Kawasaki Ninja 650 BS6: Road Test Review

The new Dunlops hold their own quite well in the dry, providing decent grip and are a step-up from the older D214s. Still, there is a lot left to be desired when the roads get slippery or if you are going over concrete patches. 

As rewarding as the handling is, the ride quality is even better. The suspension units on the Ninja 650 are, in fact, sprung slightly softer in comparison to its naked twin. It has to hustle the extra weight on board, thanks to the fairing. Plus, you are sitting more forward biased on the Ninja, decompressing the monoshock just a little extra than you would on the Z 650. Hence, the Ninja can go over most road imperfections without a bother. 

You might want to slow down drastically for the nasty speed humps, though. The laughably low 130mm of ground clearance makes sure you end up rubbing the underbelly exhaust more often than you would like. Slow and steady does the trick then.

One of our biggest complaints with the Ninja 650 is its braking and that has largely got to do with the ABS calibration. In isolation, the braking performance is good with great bite, good feedback and progression. But the ABS system kicks in almost too instantaneously. At the slightest hint of the front wheel locking up, the system goes into a frenzy and releases pressure for far too long, which gets a bit scary in panic braking situations. Contrarily, the intervention at the rear wheel is a lot more composed and predictable. What can you do about this issue? One way to go about solving it is to use better rubber which will provide better traction and reduce the number of times the system needs to intervene. 

Safety and Features

Kawasaki has included a lot of new bits and bobs on the Ninja 650 to make the ownership experience a lot more appealing. There's not much to complain about the new LED headlights. They are bright, with a wide spread and a good throw to alert you of potential hazards in the distance. There is a little blindspot due to the two beams intersecting each other, but that is far too close to the bike to really cause you any trouble. The old X-shaped LED tail-light continues with conventional bulbs still used for the turn indicators.

Also new on the 2020 Ninja 650 is the colour TFT dash. This feature is becoming a lot more common on motorcycles in a segment above but we are glad that Kawasaki specced it out on the Ninja 650 as well. There aren’t multiple layouts like other motorcycles with such screens. That said, everything is laid out in a legible manner. The colour of the rev bar changes nicely to orange and then red as you approach the redline, adding an extra delightful sensation to your sport riding experience.

It gets Bluetooth connectivity to pair your smartphone with the Kawasaki Rideology App. There isn’t a lot you can do with it though as there’s no turn-by-turn navigation here or the ability to control your music and accept calls on the fly when connected to your helmet’s communication unit. One can receive call and SMS alerts but the unit on our test bike failed to provide these alerts. We tried it with both iOS and Android smartphones but the result was no different.
