Kawasaki debuts updated Ninja 650 with 2020 motorcycle lineup

Kawasaki has unveiled its 2020 model year motorcycle lineup, which includes an updated version of the Ninja 650, the company announced.

The Ninja 650 has undergone several aesthetic changes, such as a longer nose, sharper edges and a taller windscreen. In addition to the cosmetic changes, the Ninja 650 features a new 4.3-inch TFT display with smartphone connectivity via the Rideology app. Rideology allows riders to check and manage specs, including riding logs, routes traveled, call notifications and display customization.

The Ninja 650 features the same 650cc parallel-twin engine used in the previous model. Performance numbers remain unchanged, with an output rated at 67 horsepower and 48.6 lb-ft of torque. The upgraded 2020 Ninja 650 is priced at $7,399 for the non-ABS model and at $7,799 for the ABS-equipped one.

The updated bike joins a long list of motorcycles that the OEM will be selling in 2020, which will include models from the hypersport, Z family, Versys, and supersport touring series.
