2021 Kawasaki Ninja 650

The all New Ninja 650

starting from £7,099

Maintaining the "Fun, Style, Easy" concept of its predecessor, the superbly balanced and extremely exciting Ninja 650 features a 650cc Parallel Twin engine with a strong low-mid range focus and a lightweight chassis in a slim, middleweight package. Engine refinements contribute to cleaner emissions and increased mid-range torque, and new tyres offer lighter handling. Sharp new styling, highlighted by new LED headlights and TFT colour instrumentation, delivers a sportier appearance and even stronger Ninja family looks.

New Dunlop Sportmax Roadsport 2 tyres contribute to lighter handling.

Sharper Ninja Styling

The Ninja 650’s sharper new styling gives it a sportier appearance and even stronger Ninja family looks. Its sleek and sporty design inspires confidence in riders.
