2017 Kawasaki Ninja 650 Unveiled at Intermot 2016

Kawasaki has unveiled the MY2017 Ninja 650 at Intermot 2016. The motorcycle now carries a new design, leaving all of the curves behind with its currently sold version. Now, it looks more into the Ninja 300 and Ninja 1000 (which has also received a MY2017 design at the show) family. Not just that, the Ninja 650 KRT Edition has also been displayed with the standard model.

The new nose is much sharper than the older edition while the headlight on MY17 looks more like the race inspired ZX series. The side fairing feels lighter than before while the rear has also been redesigned, which actually means smaller seats and a longer mudguard. The handlebars are still raised, thereby allowing both sporty and tourer friendly rides on the motorcycle.
