FIRST LOOK: 2022 Kawasaki Z650RS Breaks Cover

Team Green finally lifted the cover off the all-new middle-weight retro motorcycle, the Kawasaki Z650RS.

Injecting the same retro DNA from the Z900RS that was introduced back in 2018, the Z650RS also features the reliable parallel-twin 649cc engine found on Z650 and Ninja 650.

The twin-engine was re-tuned for low and mid rev response but continue to deliver 67hp @ 8,000rpm and 65.7Nmm @ 6,500rpm.

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

According to Kawasaki, the Z650RS is available from GBP7,549 (RM43k) in the UK.
