The BS6 Kawasaki Z650 has been launched in India. The BS6-compliant middleweight naked streetfighter costs INR 5.94 lakh (ex-showroom), which makes it INR 25,000 more expensive than the BS4 version.
BS6 Kawasaki Z650 Features
One of the main features of the new BS6 Z650 is the 4.3-inch fully-digital TFT instrument cluster which supports smartphone connectivity via Kawasaki’s Rideology mobile app. Customers can connect their smartphones via Bluetooth and use several telephony functions and much more. The Japanese company offers the same instrument cluster in the BS6 Kawasaki Ninja 650.
In terms of styling, the BS6 Kawasaki Z650 has a more aggressive front end thanks to the sharper Sugomi design. It reminds us of the mighty Kawasaki Z H2. The Z650 also gets new Dunlop Sportmax Roadsport 2 tyres, which promise to provide better grip, with the latest update. Some of the other key features of the BS6 Kawasaki Z650 include:
- LED headlamps
- 120 mm and 160 mm wide front and rear tyre respectively
- 41 mm telescopic front forks with 125 mm of travel
- Pre-load adjustable horizontal back-link with 130 mm of travel
- Dual semi-floating 300 mm front petal discs
- Single 220 mm rear disc
