2023 Kawasaki Z650RS Gets New Visuals In Japan

Kawasaki has updated its neo-retro Z650RS with a new colour scheme for 2023. 

  • Kawasaki Z650RS was launched back in September 2021. 
  • Features the same 649cc parallel-twin engine found in the Z650 and Ninja 650. 

Joining the already available Candy Emerald Green is the new Metallic Moondust Gray X Ebony for the 2023 model year.

The Kawasaki Z650RS is the Japanese latest take on neo-retro naked bike jumping on the success of the bigger and bolder, Z900RS.

Continuing the firm’s trusted 649cc parallel-twin platform, the Z900RS 650RS makes a decent 67hp @ 8,000rpm and 64Nm @ 6,500rpm. 

The new colourway is already available in Japan since 1st November. 

Like its Z650 and Ninja 650 cousin, the Z650RS is equipped with the same 41mm front fork and horizontal link rear shock with preload-adjustable.

Braking is done by a dua twin-piston front callipers clamping on a 300mm disc while governed by a dual-channel Bosch ABS.

Other features include:

  • assist/slipper clutch
  • 820mm seat height
  • full LED light setup
  • classic analogue dial with digital display
