we did a review of the previous version of the Ninja 650R, we almost realized that there hardly be a big bike which suit the Indian conditions A rider friendly comfortable position, incredibly linear delivery, rock solid ambidexterity for touring as well as corner carving, and a windscreen effectively deflected air at high – functionally the bike was tough to Detractors could point a at its shape, which wasn’t the balanced and attractive, but besides the Ninja 650 was an epitome of practical, performance and rider friendliness.

In its avatar, the Ninja 650R has got rid of its only setback – the looks! The new 650 has been restyled to look snazzier, sexier, without out any of the virtues of its forebear. We’re to announce that it’s as fabulous as the previous version (we the sheer size of the previous though), and has infact been improved with a plethora of having been incorporated.

We rode the bike on a very wet two-up, to understand it in detail and our on this beautiful piece of is provided below.

Design and

The new Ninja 650 borrows the basic template from the earlier gen and then changes almost all the to various extents without the original proportions or character get In profile, the silhouette of the two bikes is identical, with hardly any in the dimensions and shape. Bring the in, and almost every part to have been refurbished.

The entire front apron, from the beak of the bike to the where it ends above the has been restyled. In profile, the fairing now gets the ZX-14R slashes and an additional vent for as well as for better heat Moreover, the apron is now shorter and extend all the way to the sub-frame, ending under the crankcase.

The integrated on the fairing are also more oriented now, in contrast to the orientation of the front blinkers on the bike. The Kawasaki stickering on the part of the fairing is also

The front fender has been and is now all-black, unlike the earlier two treatment. There is a dash of around the headlight area The restyled tank which is the same height as earlier, as is now more gently from the towards the handlebars. The more chiseled styling goes a way in lending the new Ninja a sharper

And it’s not just a visual the fuel capacity has been to 16 liters from the earlier

The entire rear panel has redesigned. The new Ninja 650 now features a seat unlike the single seat on the earlier machine. The height for the pillion rider to have been raised a in the bargain.

The redesigned 2-piece assembly features thicker and foam though, and is still one of the comfortable seats for the second if you compare it with other products. Funnily, the grab on the left hand side has replaced by an ugly, humongous guard. Thanks to our stupid you’ll have to buy the grab for the other side as an accessory for money.


Thankfully, the exquisitely exposed sloping one sided mono-shock has not been touched and as distinctive as ever, lending the 650 is characteristic allure. The underbelly has been redesigned, is a tad more in form and more sharply upwards.

In addition, the twin-pipe frame has been redesigned for rigidity. The seat height has lowered for more stable and improved aesthetics. The swing-arm has been redesigned and now features a assembly for both more and better styling.

The instrument has been newly designed The all digital instrument cluster has now replaced by an analog tachometer and a readout. There is also an ECO which turns on when riding the bike in a fuel manner. Headlamp and tail-lamp been restyled and now look better than the ones on the version.

We especially loved the dotted pattern of the LED tail-lamps. The handlebars on the new are 20mm wider for better comfort. The seat, handlebar and are rubber mounted to keep the minimal.

In all, the new Ninja has been given a thorough to make sure that styling (on its predecessor) isn’t a when it comes to buying It looks much more and sharper in its newest avatar, and across as a proper supersport

A special mention must be of the paint quality on this The glossy green paint on our bike made us look at it and over again. The quality and of the paint on this machine is outstanding. You’d want to run fingers over that tank only to appreciate the and deep paint finish.

It’s one of the best we have on any bike and needs to be witnessed to be
