Dealer Insights

Nice one owner. Really low miles!

Description

They’re known as “sweet spot” motorcycles: streetbikes so balanced, user-friendly and all-around capable that they stand well above their two-wheeled counterparts, forging lasting reputations as exciting, practical and stylish machines.





New for 2012

• Redesigned twin-pipe perimeter frame offers proper rigidity, stable handling, a low seat height and improved aesthetics

• Twin-pipe swingarm assembly offers improved rigidity and maximum style

• Redesigned exhaust system features a new connector pipe, a higher-volume 3-chamber muffler assembly for improved mid-range while maintaining peak top-end power, and a higher quality finish

• Redesigned bodywork features better aerodynamics, improved engine-heat dissipation and sharper looks that identify with the flagship ZX™-14R

• Easier-pull clutch cable design for reduced fatigue and enhanced control

• Revised suspension settings and increased wheel travel front and rear offer improved ride comfort while offering excellent compliance in varying situations

• Improved brake pads offer better braking performance and control

• New instrument cluster assembly features an analog tachometer and a digital readout module for at-a-glance information transfer to the rider

• 20mm wider handlebar offers improved rider comfort and control

• Redesigned 2-piece seat assembly features thicker and wider foam for improved comfort for rider and passenger

• Dunlop’s grippy yet durable Roadsmart II tires are standard

• Increased fuel capacity and more compact battery





Smooth, Torquey, Quick-Revving, 649cc Parallel-Twin Engine

• Liquid-cooled, DOHC, eight-valve fuel-injected twin cylinder engine delivers smooth, responsive performance, especially in the low to medium-rpm range

• Additional mid-range power for 2012, produces exceptional roll-on response and impressive passing performance, to help make even commuter traffic enjoyable

• Minimal vibration via a 180-degree crankshaft-driven balancer shaft, which in turn drives the water pump

• Oil jets on the connecting rod big ends spray oil on the underside of the pistons to aid cooling

• Lightweight plug-mounted ignition coils deliver a hot spark and save space

• High-capacity radiator for increased cooling efficiency

• Engine coolant travels directly to the engine cases, then follows internal passages to the cylinder and head for minimum external plumbing and a simplified cooling system





Digital Fuel Injection

• Fuel injection settings boost the engine’s bottom-end power while letting it rev more quickly

• Sub-throttle valve equipped 38mm Keihin throttle bodies offer optimum performance and rideability

• Located behind the main throttle valves, the sub-throttles are controlled by the DFI® system’s ECU for a precise throttle response, similar to a constant velocity carburetor

• Auto fast-idle system simplifies starting and helps ensure that the catalyzer reaches optimum temperature quickly

• Lightweight fuel pump is mounted inside the fuel tank





Compact Engine Design

• Powerful twin-cylinder engine is the most compact in its category, which helps reduce the dimensions of the entire motorcycle and allows use of a slim (and all-new) twin-pipe perimeter frame

• Triangular setup of the crankshaft and transmission shafts makes the engine dimensionally short front-to-back

• Transmission input shaft, output shaft and gear-change drum are contained in a cassette-style package that allows a compact layout and eases transmission maintenance

• Semi-dry sump design reduces engine height

• Plated, linerless aluminum cylinders with a narrow cylinder pitch keep the engine light and slim





Low Emissions

• Efficient fuel injection and a three-way catalyzer inside the exhaust produce very low emissions, able to pass stringent Euro III emissions regulations

• 300-cell catalyzer is compact and light

• Under-engine muffler placement aids mass centralization and yields a low center of gravity





Vibration Control

• Rubber-mounted seat, handlebar and footpegs (rider’s and passenger’s) keep vibration low and comfort as high as possible





Rigid Twin-Pipe Perimeter Frame

• Slim, low, lightweight, rigid and compact frame design is narrow at the knees and footpegs (50mm narrower for 2012) for optimum rider comfort and control

• The strong steel perimeter frame wraps around the engine for optimum rigidity, rivaling that of all-aluminum designs

• Optimal frame rigidity is achieved through extensive computer analysis, which translates to superb handling and wheel control

• The new frame and swingarm designs flow together well aesthetically, and work with the revised suspension settings to offer maximum wheel control

• Short front-to-back dimensions of the engine allow for a longer swingarm and a shorter wheelbase, which contributes to the new Ninja’s light and nimble handling

• Clean frame joint weld finishes highlight the bike’s overall quality and attention to detail





Stylish Twin-Pipe Swingarm

• New swingarm is tuned to complement the new frame’s flex and rigidity characteristics

• Swingarm’s upper right tube has a D-shaped cross section for strength and light weight

• Swingarm shape and design contributes to the Ninja 650’s high-quality appearance





Suspension

• Revised settings on the 41mm conventional fork and preload-adjustable laydown shock offer more travel for improved ride comfort and exceptional wheel control

• Fork lower ends around the axle shaft add to the bike’s performance and enhance its high-quality image





Comfortable, Confidence-Inspiring Ergonomics

• A 20mm-wider handlebar, new 2-piece seat (wider and thicker foam for 2012) and optimal footpeg placement result in a comfortable and natural riding position suiting a wide range of riders

• New backbone-type subframe offers a low seat height and a narrower footpeg placement for improved control and comfort, making the reach to the ground even easier

• The offset single-shock rear suspension layout along with a smaller battery for 2012 allows a lower seat height as well

• This low seat height and slim overall design make it easy to plant both feet firmly on the ground when stopped – a bonus for newer riders





Triple Disc Brakes

• Dual 300mm front petal-shaped disc brakes with twin-piston calipers and a single 220mm rear petal-shaped disc deliver plenty of braking power, especially with the addition of grippier brake pads for 2012

• Front brake master cylinder features a 14mm piston for smooth actuation





Sleek, Supersport-Inspired Bodywork

• A dual headlight design within the new fairing’s angular snout features multi-reflector bulb hoods and twin position lights – like its Ninja supersport brethren

• A 3-way adjustable windscreen deflects air away from the rider, creating a still-air envelope and reducing wind buffeting at higher speeds

• Redesigned – and larger-capacity – fuel tank meshes perfectly with the radically shaped new fairing

• Distinctive Ninja supersport design elements enhance the new Ninja 650’s sporty image and compact appearance

• Integrated front turn signals feature clear lenses and amber bulbs

• A sleek tail cowl featuring a thin LED taillight accentuates the new bodywork’s radical appearance

• Inner rear fender helps keep the underside of the tail cowl clean

• Turn signals also function as flashing hazard lights

• A redesigned front fender minimizes water splash, while its shape matches the Ninja 650’s new bodywork package

• Supersport-type mirrors – like those on Kawasaki’s ZX-10R and 6R – accentuate the new bike’s aggressive positioning and aesthetics





6-Spoke Aluminum Wheels

• Attractive six-spoke supersport-style wheels augment the bike’s lightweight look and reduce unsprung weight for superb suspension action





Instruments/Controls

• All-new multi-function instrumentation includes a fuel gauge, digital speedometer, clock, odometer, dual trip meters, economical riding (ECO) indicator, and an analog tachometer above the LCD info-pod

• Clock and trip meter can be viewed simultaneously

• Easy-to-read LCD screen offers riders quick, at-a-glance information on a variety of systems

• Ignition switch is now located at the top of the tank assembly, which gives a clearer view to the Ninja 650’s newly designed instruments
