2023 Kawasaki Ninja 650 Launched At A Price Of Rs 7.12 Lakh, with A Traction Control
The Ninja 650, a middleweight sportbike from Kawasaki, has been introduced in India at the price of Rs. 7.12 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). The 2023 Kawasaki Ninja 650 now has traction control for the first time since its 2006 debut. The bike’s mechanical and aesthetic components are unchanged save from this addition. In addition, this update has a huge price increase of Rs 51,000 above the prior version.
The inclusion of a traction control system is the model’s main update for this year. The Kawasaki Versys 650, the Ninja 650’s more touring-focused brother, now has the same traction control technology. The system has two levels of intervention, called Mode 1 and Mode 2, with Mode 2 intervening more quickly. Additionally, if the rider so chooses, the system can be turned off. The Lime Green paint option’s updated graphics, which include a Kawasaki Ninja 400-inspired appearance, is another minor adjustment.
The bicycle’s mechanical design has not changed. The 649cc liquid-cooled parallel-twin engine produces 64Nm of torque at 6,700 rpm and 68 horsepower at 8,000 rpm. A 6-speed gearbox with a slipper clutch is connected to this 180-degree parallel twin. A steel trellis frame with this engine nestled inside is supported by a telescoping fork and a mono-shock with preload adjustment. The Ninja 650 weighs 196kg when the 15-liter gasoline tank is completely full.
Twin 300mm rotors at the front, squeezed by two twin-piston axially mounted calipers, and a 220mm disc coupled to a single-piston caliper at the back are responsible for stopping the vehicle. In contrast to its recently installed traction control system, the dual-channel ABS that comes standard on the Ninja 650 cannot be turned off. The Dunlop Sportmax Roadsport 2 tires are identical to the first generation.
The prices of Kawasaki’s 2023 models have recently increased, with bikes like the Z900 and the ZX-10R remaining the same but becoming significantly more expensive.
