The Kawasaki Z650RS is destined to impress all riders with its lovingly distilled spirit of RETROVOLUTION.Available from January 2024.

Relaxed Riding Position
Wide, flat handlebar and a relaxed riding position puts the rider in a natural, comfortable position that both inspires confidence and facilitates control for a wide range of riders.

Dual-Dial Instrumentation with Multi-Function LCD
Analogue-style speedometer and tachometer dials are complemented by a multi-functional LCD screen, balancing retro-style looks with modern functionality.

Spoke-Style Cast Wheels
Original cast wheels like those of the Z900RS feature flat spokes designed to look like classic wire-spoked wheels. Designed using Kawasaki’s advanced analysis technology, the wheels offer a balance of light weight and stylish looks, contributing to both handling and a design suited to the retro category.

Horizontal Backlink Rear Suspension
Parallel-Twin Engine
Optimised for everyday riding, the exciting Parallel Twin engine offers quick response, strong low-mid range performance and favourable fuel economy. When opening the throttle, riders will notice a smooth and powerful engine character offering both a high level of control when making minute throttle adjustments and a gratifying rush of acceleration in the lower rpm ranges.

Modern Retro Styling    
Like Kawasaki’s retro sport Z900RS, the Z650RS features timeless good looks. As a middleweight model, a light and casual appearance reflects its rider-friendly character. The appeal of a traditional motorcycle is complemented by simple and modern design touches that allow the Z650RS to blend seamlessly into your everyday life.

Dual ø300 mm front disc brakes and ø220 mm rear deliver plenty of braking power. The round discs contribute to the bike’s retro sport image.

Lightweight Trellis Frame
One of the key contributors to the Z650RS’ light weight (noticeable as soon as the bike is lifted off its sidestand) is its innovative trellis frame. Weighing 13.5 kg, it contributes significantly to the bike’s light, natural handling.
