The all new Z650 builds on the success story of the now old ER-6n. The all-new bike uses a similar parallel 649cc 8v twin, which now meets Euro4 guidelines. However, that is where the similarities end. The 10kg lighter trellis frame is all new, as is the swing-arm which has a further weight saving of 2.7kg: overall the Zed is 17kg lighter. The reduction in weight and improved low to mid-range power makes the Z650 more enjoyable and easier to ride than its predecessor. A lower, thinner seat, lighter clutch with slipper action and dramatic styling make it more appealing than ever.
