2023 Kawasaki Ninja 650 launched in India

In Kawasaki’s Indian line-up, the Ninja 650 remains one of the highest-selling models, along with the Ninja 1000. The former has been in the market since long, and the Japanese two-wheeler manufacturer has today launched the updated 2023 Kawasaki Ninja 650 in India. Well, prices for the mid-capacity sports touring motorcycle start from Rs 7.12 lakh, ex-showroom India. Deliveries, on the other hand, will commence by this month itself. The 2023 Kawasaki Ninja 650 will continue to rival its current set of competitors, namely the Honda CBR650R and Triumph Tiger Sport 660.

As revealed by the brand, the updated Ninja 650 will be on sale in the “Lime Green” paint scheme, and it will come fitted with the company’s KRTC (Kawasaki Traction Control) system. The safety net allows the rider to push the Ninja 650 to its limit while keeping the fear of losing out on traction at distance from the mind.

As per the company, new  KRTC system intervenes based on several parameters to have an accurate and real-time output. Also, it offers two modes wherein Mode 1 remains less intrusive, offering some leverage to play around with the power. In contrast, Mode 2 keeps the wheel spin in check to the neck. Thankfully, the system can be turned off as well.

The 2023 Kawasaki Ninja 650 features new graphics for the bodywork, which comprises a twin LED headlamp setup on the front. The windshield on the 2023 Ninja 650 is a new unit too, and it now sits lower than the model it replaces. Besides, the motorcycle gets a 4.3-inch TFT LCD for the instrument cluster. In fact, it is now BlueTooth enabled and offers connected tech via “RIDEOLOGY THE APP”.

Talking of mechanicals, the motorcycle continues with the 650 cc parallel-twin engine that is capable of belting out a peak power output of 68 PS at 8,000 clicks per minute, while the peak torque is rated at 64 Nm at 6,700 rpm. The major revision on the 2023 model remains the new Dunlop Sportmax Roadsport 2 tyres. With 17-inch rims on both ends, the front end uses 120-section rubber, whereas the rear end gets a 160-section tyre.
