This particular Kawasaki Z650 sports a unique yellow and black dual tone paint job. The bike follows Kawasaki’s ‘Sugomi’ design philosophy, which is found in all of Kawasaki’s Z model range.

The motorcycle features an analogue-digital combo instrument cluster, with Kawasaki’s economical riding indicator. There are three rider-selectable display modes as well.

Coming to the bike’s mechanical underpinnings, the 649cc parallel twin DOHC engine nestles inside a lightweight trellis frame. The engine puts out 68 PS of power at 8,000 rpm and 65 Nm of torque at 6,500 rpm. The powerplant works in tandem with a 6-speed gearbox, with assist and slipper clutch.
