Z650 ABS – 2020


The newest addition to Kawasaki’s Z Supernaked Series features a 650cc Parallel Twin engine with strong low-mid range torque and an all-new lightweight chassis in a slim, compact middleweight package that offers sugomi* performance and styling. The Z650’s nimble handling, superb feedback and strong acceleration are complemented by easy-tomanage power delivery and rider-friendly manoeuvrability, offering an ideal blend of sporty performance and everyday versatility sure to satisfy everyone from new to more experienced riders. Eyecatching Z styling reflects the sporty nature of this exciting new machine. Like the 1976 Z650, whose torquey engine and compact chassis offered a lighter, nimbler alternative to the larger, more powerful Z1, the all-new 2017 Z650 is ideal for discerning customers who prefer agile, sporty riding.
