2022 Kawasaki Z650 50th Anniversary

Redefine Raw

starting from £7,549

Resplendent the Firecracker Red of 1980’s Z-GP models, the 50th Anniversary Z650 represents a unique chance to own a machine in the mid-capacity class that Kawasaki pioneered. Dark blue and silver highlights accentuate the vivid red colour scheme and, like earlier models, the "Z" emblem and Kawasaki logo are finished in gold. Add silver pinstriped red wheels, new seat cover material plus the commemorative "Z 50th" front fender logo and special becomes "must have".
AVAILABLE FROM MARCH 2022

Key Features

Cleaner Emissions

A number of 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.

Sharper Headlamp Cowl

The headlamp cowl became sharper and more compact, with a two-piece design (distinct from that of the three-piece Z900 cowl) that positions coloured pieces higher to create a light image. The sharp chin spoiler, new meter cover, and more forward-slanting lines contribute to the sugomi design.

New Tyres: Lighter Handling

New Dunlop Sportmax Roadsport 2 tyres contribute to lighter handling.

Smartphone Connectivity

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.

Increased Passenger Comfort

Rear seat with thicker urethane (approximately 5 mm thicker at the centre, 10 mm thicker at the sides) and wider sides offers increased passenger comfort.

Stronger Sugomi Presence

With a sharper, more compact cowl and more muscular radiator shrouds, the new Z650 boasts a stronger sugomi presence.

TFT Colour Instrumentation

The new alldigital TFT colour instrumentation – a Kawasaki first in the 650cc class – gives the cockpit a high-tech, highgrade appearance. The new meter also offers additional features unavailable on the previous model.

Technology

ABS


ABS (Anti-lock Brake System) ensures stable braking performance by preventing wheel lock during braking.

Horizontal Back-link Rear Suspension


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

Assist & Slipper Clutch


Based on racing technology, the Assist & Slipper Clutch acts as both a back-torque limiter and a self-servo mechanism that enables a lighter clutch lever pull.

Dual Throttle Valves offer increased power and greater ease of use care of a second set of ECU-controlled throttle valves.

Economical Riding Indicator


The Economical Riding Indicator is a mark appearing on the instrument panel to indicate favourable fuel consumption, encouraging fuel efficient riding.
