2022 Kawasaki Z650 RS 50th Anniversary

Revolution

starting from £8,249

A special painting process was developed specially for the Z650RS and Z900RS 50th anniversary editions, replicating the iconic "Fireball" pattern of the original Z1. The candy colours of the tank and bodywork are applied in layers to bring out a deep, glossy texture that enhances the inherent beauty of these machines. Both machines feature gold-coloured wheels and “Double Overhead Camshaft” emblems reminiscent of the past and proudly show the "Z 50th" logo on the top of the tank.

Key Features

Relaxed Riding Position

Wide, flat handlebar and a relaxed riding position puts the rider in a natural, comfortable position that both inspires confidence and facilitates control for a wide range of riders.

Spoke-Style Cast Wheels

Original cast wheels like those of the Z900RS feature flat spokes designed to look like classic wire-spoked wheels. Designed using Kawasaki’s advanced analysis technology, the wheels offer a balance of light weight and stylish looks, contributing to both handling and a design suited to the retro category.

Brakes

Dual ø300 mm front disc brakes and ø220 mm rear deliver plenty of braking power. The round discs contribute to the bike’s retro sport image.

Dual-Dial Instrumentation with Multi-Function LCD

Analogue-style speedometer and tachometer dials are complemented by a multi-functional LCD screen, balancing retro-style looks with modern functionality.

Modern Retro Styling

Like Kawasaki’s retro sport Z900RS, the Z650RS features timeless good looks. As a middleweight model, a light and casual appearance reflects its rider-friendly character. The appeal of a traditional motorcycle is complemented by simple and modern design touches that allow the Z650RS to blend seamlessly into your everyday life.

Parallel-Twin Engine

Optimised for everyday riding, the exciting Parallel Twin engine offers quick response, strong low-mid range performance and favourable fuel economy. When opening the throttle, riders will notice a smooth and powerful engine character offering both a high level of control when making minute throttle adjustments and a gratifying rush of acceleration in the lower rpm ranges.

Horizontal Backlink Rear Suspension

Horizontal Back-link Rear Suspension arranges its shock unit horizontally, greatly contributing to efficient use of space and mass centralisation.

Lightweight Trellis Frame

One of the key contributors to the Z650RS’ light weight (noticeable as soon as the bike is lifted off its sidestand) is its innovative trellis frame. Weighing 13.5 kg, it contributes significantly to the bike’s light, natural handling.
