Project Invictus – ADVNinja650: Customised Ninja 650 for Dual Sport Adventure

Added in: Features

The Kawasaki Ninja created quite a buzz in the sports touring motorcycle category in 2011. And with the price tag of around 5.5-6 lakh, the bike was selling like a hot cake. The 649cc parallel-twin engine on this motorcycle produces 72 bhp and puts out 64Nm of torque.

Many owners used the motorcycle in its stock condition. Trying to make their Ninja 650 unique, people added aftermarket exhaust, windshields and many more. But none of the Ninja 650s are as radical as the “Project Invictus – ADVNinja650” customised by avid motorcyclist Dipesh Shah.
