Just like its predecessor, the superbly balanced Z650 offers excellent performance and styling in a slim, compact middleweight package that features a 650cc engine with strong low-mid range torque in a lightweight chassis. Also, the engine is much more refined now, as it produces cleaner emissions and an increased mid-range torque. The bike also gets a set of new tyres, lighter chassis components and a redesigned tandem-seat that offers increased passenger comfort. The sharp new styling of the bike is highlighted by a new LED headlight and TFT instrumentation, that gives this 2nd generation Z650 an even stronger Sugomi (embodiment or spirit of a predator on a hunt and ready to strike its prey) presence.
