Kawasaki Z650RS Engine Specs
The engine is pretty much the same as the 649cc parallel-twin, as you’ll find in the Z650, Ninja 650 sports bike, and Versus 650 adventure tourer. Now it is a solid, reliable performer with a peak power is 67 horsepower, which is a little less than the competition. And it also uses a 180-degree crank which gives it an exhaust note that, for me, isn’t as pleasing to the ear as a 270 crank as you’ll find in many other retros.
Power on the new Kawasaki Z650RS comes from the familiar 649 cc twin-cylinder motor seen on the Z650. Power figures are identical with 67 bhp at 8,000 rpm and 64 Nm at 6,700 RPM. The trellis frame remains the same, as well as so does the suspension set up with 41 mm telescopic front forks and a pre-load adjustable mono-shock at the rear. Braking performance comes from 300 mm discs at the front and a single 220 mm disc at the rear. Dual-channel ABS comes as standard.
Kerb Weight 192 kg, the Z650RS has a wheelbase of 1,405 mm. The motorcycle is 2,065 mm long, 800 mm large, and 1,115 mm tall. It has a gas tank capacity of 12 litres.
At Rs 6.65 lakh Ex-Showroom, the Z650RS costs Rs 41,000 more than the Z650 and Rs 4,000 more than the Ninja 650. The more powerful Triumph Trident 660, meanwhile, is priced at Rs 6.95 lakh. Deliveries of the Kawasaki Z650RS will commence from either the end of November or starting of December 2021.
