Finding a two-wheeled streetbike that is skilled in every on-road task, and does them all with passion and practicality, is very rare. Motorcycles achieving this level of accomplishment are few in numbers, but greatly appreciated as stylish rides wrapped around an exciting core. Since its debut back in 2006, the multi-talented Ninja® 650R sportbike has been a bona fide member of this elite group, winning accolades from owners and media alike.

Key Features

• Twin-pipe perimeter frame offers balanced rigidity and a low seat height

• Twin-pipe swingarm assembly offers excellent rigidity and maximum style

• Sharp, stylish sportbike bodywork features excellent engine-heat dissipation and looks that identify with Kawasaki’s flagship Ninja® ZX™-14R

• Front and rear suspension settings and wheel travel are tuned to offer ride comfort with excellent compliance in varying situations

• Instrument cluster features an analog tachometer and a digital readout module for easy information at-a-glance

• Two-piece seat assembly features thick and wide foam for optimum rider and passenger comfort but does not interfere with the rider’s reach to the ground

• Easy-pull clutch design reduces fatigue and provides smooth engagement

• Dunlop Roadsmart II tires are grippy yet durable

Smooth, Torquey, Quick-Revving, 649cc Parallel-Twin Engine

• Liquid-cooled, DOHC, eight-valve fuel-injected twin cylinder engine delivers smooth, responsive performance, especially in the low to medium-rpm range

• Strong mid-range power produces exceptional roll-on response and impressive passing performance, to help make even commuter traffic more enjoyable

• A 180-degree crankshaft-driven balancer shaft minimizes vibration and pulls double-duty as the water pump drive

• Oil jets on the connecting rod big ends spray oil on the underside of the pistons to aid cooling

• Lightweight plug-mounted ignition coils deliver a hot spark and save space

• High-capacity radiator for optimum cooling efficiency

• Engine coolant travels directly to the engine cases, then follows internal passages to the cylinder and head for minimum external plumbing and a simplified cooling system

Digital Fuel Injection

• Fuel injection settings boost the engine’s bottom-end power while still letting it rev freely

• Sub-throttle valve equipped 38mm Keihin throttle bodies offer optimum performance and rideability

• Located behind the main throttle valves, the sub-throttles are controlled by the DFI® system’s ECU for precise throttle response

• Auto fast-idle system simplifies starting and helps ensure that the catalyzer reaches optimum temperature quickly

• Lightweight fuel pump is mounted inside the fuel tank

Compact Engine Design

• Powerful twin-cylinder engine is the most compact in its category, which helps reduce the dimensions of the entire motorcycle and allows use of a slim twin-pipe perimeter frame

• Triangular setup of the crankshaft and transmission shafts makes the engine dimensionally short front-to-back

• Transmission input shaft, output shaft and gear-change drum are contained in a cassette-style package that allows a compact layout and eases transmission maintenance

• Semi-dry sump design reduces engine height

• Plated, linerless aluminum cylinders with a narrow cylinder pitch keep the engine light and slim

Low Emissions

• Efficient fuel injection and a three-way catalyzer inside the exhaust produce very low emissions, able to pass stringent Euro III emissions regulations

• 300-cell catalyzer is compact and light

Vibration Control

• Rubber-mounted seat, handlebar and footpegs (rider’s and passenger’s) keep vibration low and comfort as high as possible

• A 180-degree crankshaft-driven balancer shaft minimizes vibration and pulls double-duty as the water pump drive

Rigid Twin-pipe Perimeter Frame

• Slim, low, lightweight, rigid and compact frame design is narrow at the knees and footpegs for optimum rider comfort and control

• The strong steel perimeter frame wraps around the engine for optimum rigidity, rivaling that of all-aluminum designs

• Optimal frame rigidity is achieved through extensive computer analysis, which translates to superb handling

• The frame and swingarm designs flow together aesthetically, and work with the suspension components to offer maximum wheel control

• Short front-to-back engine dimensions allow for a longer swingarm and a shorter wheelbase, which contributes to the Ninja’s light and nimble handling

• Under-engine muffler placement aids mass centralization and yields a low center of gravity

• Clean frame joint welds highlight the bike’s overall quality and attention to detail

Stylish Twin-Pipe Swingarm

• Swingarm is tuned to complement the frame’s flex and rigidity characteristics

• Swingarm’s upper right tube has a D-shaped cross section for strength and light weight

• Swingarm shape and design contributes to the Ninja 650’s high-quality appearance


• Settings on the 41mm conventional fork and preload-adjustable laydown shock offer optimum ride comfort without sacrificing wheel control during sport riding

• Fork lowers wrap-around the axle shaft adding to the bike’s high-quality image

Comfortable, Confidence-inspiring Ergonomics

• A wide handlebar, two-piece seat and optimal footpeg placement result in a comfortable and natural seating position which suits a wide range of riders

• Backbone-type subframe offers a low seat height and a narrow footpeg placement for precise feel and excellent comfort, the narrowness also makes it easier for riders to reach to the ground

• The offset single-shock rear suspension layout along with a smaller battery also contribute to the low seat height

• This low seat height and slim overall design make it easy to plant both feet firmly on the ground when stopped – a bonus for newer riders

Triple Disc Brakes

• Dual 300mm front petal-shaped disc brakes with twin-piston calipers and a single 220mm rear petal-shaped disc deliver plenty of braking power

• Front brake master cylinder features a 14mm piston for smooth actuation

Sleek, Supersport-inspired Bodywork

• A dual headlight design within the fairing’s angular upper section features multi-reflector bulb hoods and twin position lights – like its Ninja supersport brethren

• A 3-way adjustable windscreen deflects air away from the rider, creating a still-air envelope and reducing wind buffeting at higher speeds

• Large capacity fuel tank meshes perfectly with the radically shaped fairing

• Distinctive Ninja supersport design elements enhance the Ninja 650’s sporty image and compact appearance

• Integrated front turn signals feature clear lenses and amber bulbs

• A sleek tail cowl featuring a thin LED taillight accentuates the bodywork’s radical appearance

• Inner rear fender helps keep the underside of the tail cowl clean

• Turn signals also function as flashing hazard lights

• A front fender minimizes water splash, while its shape matches the Ninja 650’s bodywork styling

• Supersport-type mirrors – like those on Kawasaki’s ZX-10R and 6R – accentuate the bike’s aggressive styling

6-Spoke Aluminum Wheels

• Attractive six-spoke supersport-style wheels augment the bike’s lightweight look and reduce unsprung weight for superb suspension action


• Multi-function instrumentation includes a fuel gauge, digital speedometer, clock, odometer, dual trip meters, economical riding (ECO) indicator, and an analog tachometer above the LCD info-pod

• Clock and trip meter can be viewed simultaneously

• Easy-to-read LCD screen offers riders quick, at-a-glance information on a variety of systems

• Ignition switch is located at the top of the tank assembly, which gives a clearer view to the Ninja 650’s instruments
