Buyer's Guide > Z650 ABS
Colours shown may not be available in Canada.
The Z650 is back in Kawasaki's lineup, but it looks a lot different from last time we saw it. The old Z650 was an air-cooled inline four, the little brother to the Z1 900. The new Z650 is a replacement for the ER-6n, a naked bike with the same liquid-cooled parallel twin Kawasaki has been using for mid-size machines for several years now. It's a nice little machine, with assist/slipper clutch as standard, and it's down on weight from the outgoing model too. This is the ABS version, priced $400 higher.
