At the heart of the bike sits a 649cc, parallel-twin engine that is capable of churning out 67.31bhp of power and 64Nm of torque. The engine comes coupled to a 6-speed gearbox.
The bike also continues along with the same set of features which include an LCD instrument cluster that is compatible with Bluetooth connectivity, dual-channel ABS, and a slipper clutch. It rolls on 17-inch wheels and comes suspended on front telescopic forks backed up by a preload-adjustable monoshock at the rear. For braking, it uses a 300 mm dual-petal disc at the front and a single 220mm petal disc at the rear.
The Z650 is the naked version of the Ninja 650 motorcycle. Both the bikes share the same mechanicals and features but appeal to a different set of buyers courtesy of their distinctive looks and appeal.
