MCN overall review verdict: The Kawasaki Z650 naked 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. Related: Kawasaki Z650 vs Yamaha MT-07 vs Suzuki SV650 The 10kg lighter trellis frame is all new, as is the swingarm, which has a further weight-saving of 2.7kg: overall the Zed is 17kg lighter. This significant reduction in weight and improved low to mid-range power makes the Z650 more enjoyable and easier to ride than its predecessor. It's also another reason the 'lost' four bhp is not noticeable as the power to weight ration of the latest Z650 is much better than the bike it replaced. A lower, thinner seat, lighter clutch with slipper action and dramatic styling make it more appealing than ever. Kawasaki Z650 can be ridden on A2 licence In 2018 the company launched a restricted A2 licence-compliant version for those who aren't old enough to have passed the full A UK motorbike licence. The naked Z650 also got Metallic Matte Cover Green, Candy Lime Green and also Metallic Spark Black options as new colourways for 2018.
