Like its predecessor, the superbly balanced Z650 offers sugomi* performance and styling in a slim, compact middleweight package that features a 650cc Parallel Twin engine with strong low-mid range torque in a lightweight chassis. Engine refinements contribute to cleaner emissions and increased mid-range torque, new tyres offer lighter handling, and a redesigned tandem seat offers increased passenger comfort. As before, nimble handling and superb feedback are complemented by easy-to-manage power delivery and rider-friendly manoeuvrability, offering an ideal blend of sporty performance and everyday versatility designed to accommodate a wide range of riders. Sharp new styling, highlighted by a new LED headlight and TFT instrumentation, gives this 2nd generation Z650 an even stronger sugomi presence. The thorough attention given to ensure a high-quality fit & finish results in a machine that riders can be proud to own – an ideal ambassador for the Z brand.

ENGINE

Performance and feel were optimised for the mid-range (3,000-6,000 min-1). However, in the low-rpm range (below 3,000 min-1) power delivery is very smooth, and even above 6,000 min-1 power and torque curves continue on without dropping off suddenly. Liquid-cooled, DOHC, 8-valve 649 cm³ Parallel Twin with fuel injection delivers smooth, responsive performance. The strong low-end focus lends itself to sporty riding, but also translates to rider-friendly power characteristics that facilitate control and inspire confidence in new riders. Changes to the intake and exhaust system components were made to ensure that Euro4 emissions regulations are cleared, and offer an increase in mid-range torque while maintaining the power of the previous model. Increased catalyser volume contributes to cleaner emissions.

Simple, sleek silencer design adds to the bikes's overall slim design. Under-engine muffler improves mass centralisation and lowers the bike’s centre of gravity. Muffler internal construction and catalyser layout ensure clean emissions that pass stringent Euro 4 regulations. The muffler’s 33 mm diameter tail pipe also contributes to strong low-mid range performance and response.

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. Redirecting the air also helps keep the tank, frame and other parts that contact the rider cooler, further increasing rider comfort.

SUSPENSION AND BRAKES

Horizontal Back-link rear suspension offers a progressive character. Compared to link-less type suspension, it delivers a better balance of sporty performance and ride comfort. Rear suspension positions the shock unit and linkage above the swingarm. This arrangement contributes to mass centralisation, while ensuring that the suspension is located far enough from the exhaust that operation is not affected by heat.

Kawasaki’s analysis technology was also used in the swingarm. Similar to the frame, the line from the pivot to rear axle was made as straight as possible. The lightweight design of swingarm (4.8 kg) contributes to the bike’s light, natural handling.

Dual 300 mm front petal disc brakes and 220 mm rear petal disc look great and deliver plenty of braking power while contributing to the bikes sporty image. Dual-piston front calipers, master cylinder and brake pads offer superb brake touch and control. In addition to the very effective petal disc brakes, customers looking for an added degree of reassuring braking performance are advised that the Z650L has standard front and rear ABS braking systems.

FRAME

From its front cowl adorned with meter cover to its compact tail cowl, the Z650L’s head-turning design exudes a functional beauty. Complementing sugomi design elements (crouching stance, low-positioned head and upswept tail) that give it an instantly recognisable silhouette, its condensed appearance is emphasised by slim, close-fitting bodywork designed to give the bike a light, nimble image that reflects its sporty performance.

Ensuring the Z650L is not mistaken for anything other than Kawasaki Supernaked when viewed from behind, its sharp LED taillight lights up in “Z” pattern, contributing to the sporty image and the strong Z identity. A Bluetooth chip built into the instrument panel enables riders to connect to their motorcycle wirelessly. Using the smartphone application “RIDEOLOGY THE APP,” a number of instrument functions can be accessed, contributing to an enhanced motorcycling experience.

The new 4.3” all-digital TFT colour instrumentation – a Kawasaki first in the 650cc class – gives the cockpit a high-tech, high-grade appearance. The TFT (thin-film transistor) delivering a high level of visibility. The screen’s background colour is switchable (black or white), and screen brightness adjusts automatically to suit available light.The new meter also offers additional features unavailable on the previous model.

One of the key components realising Z650L’s light weight (noticeable as soon as the bike is lifted off its side-stand), the lightweight frame weighs only 15 kg and contributes significantly to the bike’s light, nimble handling. Components of the high-tensile steel trellis frame follow the ideal pipe line. The lines of the frame were made as straight as possible, and when bends were necessary their angles were made as small as possible, resulting in a design that disperses stress extremely well.
