New Kawasaki Ninja 500 SE

Lime Green / Ebony RRP £6,499Available To Order

New, Larger Displacement Engine
Smooth, powerful acceleration is available with a twist of the wrist from a new 451 cm3 engine. The acceleration feels brisk thanks to plenty of power in the low- to mid-rpm range, and, when the throttle stays on, enough power in the high-rpm range to hit higher speeds with ease. With well-balanced power output and strong  acceleration throughout the rev range, the  combination of this engine with a lightweight chassis makes the machine well-suited to a wide variety of riding situations including everyday riding.

Lightweight, Advantage Manoeuvrable Chassis
Easy to use is the key, as the compact chassis has been designed to be as user-friendly as possible. Predictable handling thanks to a chassis conceived with light weight, manoeuvrability, and mass centralisation in mind provides excellent feel and inspiring confidence for a wide range of riders. The easy handling also facilitates manoeuvring when parking.

Powerful, Rider-Friendly 451 cm3 Parallel-Twin Engine
The power available from the 451 cm3 engine is found through the entire rpm range to make it easy for riders to use, no matter what kind of riding they are doing, from low-end power for accelerating off the line in the city to top-end revs for riding on the highway. The engine in the new Ninja 500 is up the task, no matter what it may be.

Instrumentation with Smartphone Connectivity
Both the full LCD instrument panel on the standard models and the TFT display on the SE models offer smartphone connectivity, enabling riders to connect with their machines to enjoy display notifications, riding logs, and community features.

Lightweight Trellis Frame
The Ninja 500 features a trellis frame similar in design to that of the Ninja H2. Kawasaki’s advanced dynamic rigidity analysis was used to ensure optimum rigidity with light weight. The engine is rigid-mounted and used as a stressed member. The frame design contributes significantly to the bike’s low curb mass.

Confidence-Inspiring Reach to the Ground
While seat height is 785 mm, the slim design of both the seat and the rear of the engine gives riders an unobstructed line for their feet to reach the ground. The seat’s flat shape offers ample padding in the front portion without sacrificing the comfortable reach to the ground, which helps riders enjoy the bike with confidence.

Superb Ride Comfort and Wind Protection
Seats with thick cushioning and low-rebound urethane contribute to superb ride comfort. The Ninja 500’s largevolume bodywork also offers great wind protection, further contributing to ride comfort.

Assist & Slipper Clutch
Kawasaki’s Assist & Slipper Clutch results in a light clutch pull for even more rider-friendly and manageable riding in everyday situations, and reduced skipping and hopping from the rear for better sport riding and added confidence.

Latest-Design Ninja “Face”
The Ninja 500’s “face” is based around two newly designed compact headlights. Below them two spoilers protrude forward and complete the striking look.

Large-Diameter ø310 mm brake disc
Measuring ø310 mm, the Ninja 500’s semi-floating front disc offers sure stopping power with the added reassurance of ABS.

KIPASS (Kawasaki’s Intelligent Proximity Activation Start System) is a master key system that allows remote activation of the bike’s main switch and steering lock.

Flowing, Layered Bodywork
Moving from front to rear with a flowing, layered design, the bodywork on the new Ninja 500 offers a fresh impression, while sporty elements give the machine a purposeful, race-inspired look that owners will be proud to own and show off.

Relaxed, Sporty Riding Position
Relaxed rider triangle accommodates a wide range of rider sizes and riding situations. Compared to some other models (whose somewhat extreme riding position compromises comfort), the elevated handle position and slightly foot-forward footpeg position put the rider in a position to control the bike while also offering rider comfort.

Light, Predictable Handling
The chassis has a supersport-style short-wheelbase/longswingarm design, complemented by an optimised trail setting that delivers light, natural handling. The bike’s light weight also contributes to the easy handling and facilitates manoeuvring when off the bike, such as when parking.

High-Class, Intense Design
No matter from what angle the Ninja 500 is seen, its distinctive front face and sleek, flowing lines make it clear that this is a member of the Ninja family, with race-inspired, big-bike looks. The shape of the full-fairing bodywork fosters a sense of unity with the rider, helping them feel at one with the bike.
