Colours shown may not be available in Canada.
The Ninja 650  is Kawasaki's practical sportbike. It's revamped for 2017, with new bodywork, new riding position, and it's a lot lighter. Fuel economy is improved and Kawi dropped the seat height. Alas, peak horsepower is also down, probably due to engine tweaks to meet Euro4 emissions standards.
