Standard Features

Key Features
 ABS brakes offer excellent performance and enhanced confidence in adverse conditions  
 Twin-pipe perimeter frame offers balanced rigidity and a low seat height  
 Twin-pipe swingarm assembly offers excellent rigidity and maximum style  
 Sharp, stylish sportbike bodywork features excellent engine-heat dissipation and looks that identify with Kawasaki’s flagship Ninja® ZX™-14R  
 Front and rear suspension settings and wheel travel are tuned to offer ride comfort with excellent compliance in varying situations  
 Instrument cluster features an analog tachometer and a digital readout module for easy information at-a-glance  
 2-piece seat assembly features thick and wide foam for optimum rider and passenger comfort but is sculpted at the front so it does not interfere with the rider’s reach to the ground  
 Easy-pull clutch design reduces fatigue and provides smooth engagement  
 Dunlop Roadsmart II tires are grippy yet durable  
Smooth, Torquey, Quick-Revving, 649 cc Parallel-twin Engine
 Liquid-cooled, DOHC, 8-valve fuel-injected twin cylinder engine delivers smooth, responsive performance, especially in the low- to medium-rpm range  
 Strong mid-range power produces exceptional roll-on response and impressive passing performance, to help make even commuter traffic more enjoyable  
 A 180 degree crankshaft-driven balancer shaft minimizes vibration and pulls double-duty as the water pump drive  
 Oil jets on the connecting rod big ends spray oil on the underside of the pistons to aid cooling  
 Lightweight plug-mounted ignition coils deliver a hot spark and save space  
 High-capacity radiator for optimum cooling efficiency  
 Engine coolant travels directly to the engine cases, then follows internal passages to the cylinder and head for minimum external plumbing and a simplified cooling system  
Digital Fuel Injection
 Digital Fuel Injection (DFI®) settings boost the engine’s bottom-end power while still letting it rev freely  
 Sub-throttle valve equipped 38 mm Keihin throttle bodies offer optimum performance and rideability  
 Located behind the main throttle valves, the sub-throttles are controlled by the DFI system’s ECU for precise response  
 Auto fast-idle system simplifies starting and helps ensure that the catalyzer reaches optimum temperature quickly  
 Lightweight fuel pump is mounted inside the fuel tank  
Compact Engine Design
 Powerful twin-cylinder engine is the most compact in its category, which helps reduce the dimensions of the entire motorcycle and allows use of a slim twin-pipe perimeter frame  
 Triangular setup of the crankshaft and transmission shafts makes the engine dimensionally short front-to-back  
 Transmission input shaft, output shaft and gear-change drum are contained in a cassette-style package that allows a compact layout and eases transmission maintenance  
 Semi-dry sump design reduces engine height  
 Plated, linerless aluminum cylinders with a narrow cylinder pitch keep the engine light and slim  
Low Emissions
 Efficient fuel injection and a 3-way catalyzer inside the exhaust produce very low emissions, able to pass stringent Euro III emissions regulations  
 300-cell catalyzer is compact and light  
Vibration Control
 Rubber-mounted seat, handlebar and footpegs (rider’s and passenger’s) keep vibration low and comfort as high as possible  
 A 180 degree crankshaft-driven balancer shaft minimizes vibration and pulls double-duty as the water pump drive  
Rigid Twin-pipe Perimeter Frame
 Slim, low, lightweight, rigid and compact frame design is narrow at the knees and footpegs for optimum rider comfort and control  
 The strong steel perimeter frame wraps around the engine for optimum rigidity, rivaling that of all-aluminum designs  
 Optimal frame rigidity is achieved through extensive computer analysis, which translates to superb handling  
 The frame and swingarm designs flow together aesthetically, and work with the suspension components to offer maximum wheel control  
 Short front-to-back engine dimensions allow for a longer swingarm and a shorter wheelbase, which contributes to the Ninja 650’s light and nimble handling  
 Under-engine muffler placement aids mass centralization and yields a low center of gravity  
 Clean frame joint welds highlight the bike’s overall quality and attention to detail  
Stylish Twin-pipe Swingarm
 Tuned to complement the frame’s flex and rigidity characteristics  
 Upper right tube has a D-shaped cross section for strength and light weight  
 Overall shape and design contributes to the Ninja 650’s high-quality appearance  
 41 mm front fork and preload-adjustable laydown rear shock are tuned to offer optimum ride comfort without sacrificing wheel control during sport riding  
 Fork lowers wrap-around the axle shaft adding to the bike’s high-quality image  
Comfortable, Confidence-inspiring Ergonomics
 A wide handlebar, 2-piece seat and optimal footpeg placement result in a comfortable and natural upright seating position which suits a wide range of riders  
 Backbone-type subframe offers a low seat height and a narrow footpeg placement for precise feel and excellent comfort, the narrowness also makes it easier for riders to reach to the ground  
 The offset single-shock rear suspension layout along with a smaller battery also contribute to the low seat height  
 This low seat height and slim overall design make it easy to plant both feet firmly on the ground when stopped  
ABS Disc Brakes
 ABS brakes offer excellent performance and enhanced confidence in adverse conditions  
 Compact, lightweight ABS unit is highly effective without weighing the bike down  
 Dual 300 mm front petal-shaped disc brakes with twin-piston calipers and a single 220 mm rear petal-shaped disc deliver plenty of braking power  
 Front brake master cylinder features a 14 mm piston for smooth actuation  
Sleek, Supersport-inspired Bodywork
 A dual headlight design within the fairing’s angular upper section features multi-reflector bulb hoods and twin position lights – like its Ninja supersport brethren  
 A 3-way adjustable windscreen deflects air away from the rider, creating a still-air envelope and reducing wind buffeting at higher speeds  
 Large capacity fuel tank meshes perfectly with the radically shaped fairing  
 Distinctive Ninja supersport design elements enhance the Ninja 650’s sporty image and compact appearance  
 Integrated front turn signals feature clear lenses and amber bulbs  
 A sleek tail cowl featuring a thin LED taillight accentuates the bodywork’s radical appearance  
 Inner rear fender helps keep the underside of the tail cowl clean  
 Turn signals also function as flashing hazard lights  
 A front fender minimizes water splash, while its shape matches the Ninja 650’s bodywork styling  
 Supersport-type mirrors – like those on Kawasaki’s ZX-10R and 6R – accentuate the bike’s aggressive styling  
6-spoke Aluminum Wheels
 Attractive 6-spoke supersport-style wheels augment the bike’s lightweight look and reduce unsprung weight for superb suspension action  
Instruments / Controls
 Multi-function instrumentation includes a fuel gauge, digital speedometer, clock, odometer, dual trip meters, economical riding (ECO) indicator, and an analog tachometer above the LCD info-pod  
 Clock and trip meter can be viewed simultaneously  
 Easy-to-read LCD screen offers riders quick, at-a-glance information on a variety of systems  
 Ignition switch is located at the top of the tank assembly, which gives a clearer view to the Ninja 650’s instruments
