2020 KAWASAKI Z650

Posted on November 5, 2019 by Motorcycle Maniac.

Kawasaki has built a legacy of creating motorcycles that have unrivaled performance, excitement, and Sugomi™ styling, all of which is embodied in the new 2020 Z650 compact middleweight motorcycle. Known as one of the most well-balanced motorcycles in the Kawasaki lineup, the Z650 blends easy handling, optimal engine and chassis performance with bold Sugomi styling. For 2020, the new Kawasaki Z650 features new styling, LED headlight, new Dunlop tires, and a full suite of state-of-the-art advanced rider support features.

powerplant and chassis of the Z650 are what make this motorcycle extremely well-balanced
and fun to ride. Whether it’s a daily commute or just an afternoon on some backroads,
the strong parallel twin engine and sporty lightweight chassis of the Z650
create a winning package.

Highlights of the
2020 Z650

  • NEW Styling with LED Headlights
  • NEW TFT Color Instrumentation
  • NEW Smartphone Connectivity via RIDEOLOGY THE APP
  • NEW Dunlop Sportmax Roadsport 2 tires


The sharper Sugomi styling of the Z650 gives
the motorcycle an even stronger appearance. The bold appearance of the LED
headlamps, headlamp cowl, and new shrouds are sure to catch the attention of new and seasoned riders alike.

At the
front of the Z650, the new compact LED headlamp is complemented by a centrally
located LED position lamp. The defined, sharp edges emphasize the design of the
new headlamp. The headlamp cowl is sharper and more compact, with a distinct
two-piece design that positions colored parts higher, to create a light image.
The sleek chin spoiler, new meter cover, and more forward-slanting lines
contribute to the Sugomi design and appearance. Complementing the new front-end
appearance is the clean and functional design of the new wide shrouds and
radiator covers which encapsulate the fierce image of Sugomi styling.

passenger comfort also complements the new styling of the Z650, with a thicker
and wider urethane passenger seat.


The new 4.3” all-digital TFT
color instrumentation gives the cockpit of the Z650 motorcycle a high-tech,
high-grade appearance. The
full color display features TFT (thin-film transistor) technology delivers a
high level of visibility. The screen’s background color is selectable (black or
white), and screen brightness adjusts automatically to suit available light. Display functions include:
digital speedometer, digital bar-style tachometer, gear position indicator,
shift lamp, fuel gauge, odometer, dual
trip meters, current
and average fuel consumption, remaining range, average
speed, total time, coolant temperature, clock,
battery voltage, Kawasaki service reminder, oil change reminder, and Economical
Riding Indicator.
