Z650RS SPECIAL EDITION LAMS

$14,995

Kawasaki’s 650cc-class twins come in a wide range of shapes and styles – from full-cowling Ninja sports and Z Supernaked models, to Versys adventure-style and Vulcan cruiser-style machines. The newest member of the 650 club is the Z650RS, a retro sport model that combines timeless good looks inherited from the Z900RS with a compact, easy-handling package that riders will love to enjoy daily.

Like the Z900RS, the Z650RS tempts the eye with the timeless beauty of an orthodox motorcycle. Distinguishing the Z650RS from its big brother, a slim tank and a short, compact tail are expressions of light handling and an approachable character. Complementing its strong retro sport identity, modern and casual styling matches its everyday rideability.

The Z650RS’ fun and easy character can be attributed to an engine and chassis based on that of the highly acclaimed Z650. The responsive 649 cm3 Parallel Twin with robust low-end torque, combined with a lightweight chassis deliver rider-friendly power delivery and light, natural handing that promise to add a dose of fun to city outings and daily commutes. Factor in the more upright riding position that you would expect from a retro sport model, plus an easy reach to the ground, and riders will be looking for any excuse to head out for a ride.

Flexible and approachable, the stylishly casual new Z650RS retro sport model is another exciting option for riders looking for a rich motorcycle life.

FEATURES

Liquid-cooled, DOHC, 8-valve 649 cm3 Parallel Twin

Optimised for everyday riding, the exciting Parallel Twin engine offers quick response, strong low-mid range performance and favourable fuel economy.

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.

MODERN RETRO STYLING

A blend of retro and modern designs, the ø130 mm LED headlight casts a bright, white light. Slightly smaller than that of the Z900RS, it features two chambers (low-beam/highbeam), both with position lamps to ensure the whole lamp appears lit, like a retrostyle bulb headlight.

ERGONOMICALLY DESIGNED FUEL TANK

Slim 12 litre fuel tank offers an ergonomic fit when gripping with the knees.

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.

COMFORTABLE SEAT

Stepped seat offers a wide seating area for good ride comfort. The seat is slimmer at the front, facilitating the rider’s reach to the ground. The seat can be removed with the ignition key, offering hassle-free access to the fuse box and tool kit.
