Features

Handling & Ergonomics

  • RIDER AND MACHINE BECOME ONE: Everything built in and around the lightweight chassis of the new Z650 naked sportbike is designed to become an extension of the rider.
  • HANDLING: Both clutch and brake levers are 5-way adjustable to accommodate a variety of hand sized for added comfort.
  • HANDLING: Unique gull-arm style swingarm provides space for under-engine exhaust for low center of gravity and improved handling.
  • Both clutch and brake levers are 5-way adjustable to accommodate a variety of hand sizes for added comfort.
  • HANDLING: Horizontal back-liner rear suspension offers progressive damping for an ideal balance of sport riding performance and casual riding comfort.
  • HANDLING: The overall light weight* of the Z650 comes thanks to a lightweight trellis chassis with a low center of gravity for light handling and confident low speed maneuverability. *The Z650 is s significant 44.1 lb. lighter than its European counterpart. This results in lighter and more responsive handling for the Z650.
  • HANDLING: Telescopic front fork is a part of a balanced suspension package that's tuned to provide progressive damping with a high level of feedback to the rider and responsive performance.
  • ERGONOMICS: Wide handlebar contributes to easy low-speed maneuvering and leverage for higher-speed cornering.
  • ERGONOMICS: Upright seating provides a commanding ride position, giving the rider heads-up visibility and a confident, connected riding experience.
  • ERGONOMICS: Low seat height and tapered seat shape for easy foot placement at stops. Seat shape is wider at the rear for added comfort and cornering leverage.
  • ERGONOMICS: Footpeg position offers a relaxed knee bend for rider comfort.

Power & Performance

  • SPORTY ENGINE PERFORMANCE: Raw power comes from a modern parallel-twin 649 cc engine that packs strong torque and strong mid-range acceleration well suited for sporty riding.
  • ASSIST & SLIPPER CLUTCH: A light pull at the lever (assist) and smooth shifting enables confident downshifts with minimal rear wheel chatter (slipper).

Z Styling

  • AGGRESSIVE Z STYLING: A bold front face. Minimalist bodywork. Technical styling. Make no mistake - this is the new Z650 naked sportbike.
