The 2017 Kawasaki Ninja 650 has been unveiled and gets a host of changes which makes it an even better middle-weight bike for daily use. The motorcycle is lighter and more efficient.
The big news is a huge weight loss for the bike. An entirely new frame and swing arm combine with other changes to reduce curb weight by 42 pounds! This should bring the Kawasaki middleweight into the same ballpark as Yamaha’s svelte FZ-07.
Although technically a European model at this point, we expect it to be part of the U.S. lineup when Kawasaki makes that announcement on November 13.
