    Kawasaki has launched its retro-styled Z650RS at Rs 6.65 lakh. Deliveries, meanwhile, will commence from the end of November or beginning of December 2021.

    • Costs Rs 41,000 more than the Z650

    • Available in two colours

    • 68hp, 64Nm parallel-twin engine

    The Z650RS stands out when it comes to its retro design. It borrows design cues from its bigger sibling, the Z900RS, and sports a fairly similar look, complete with a smart-looking round LED headlight crowned by twin-pod instrumentation. The pinstriped square-ish fuel tank looks bold and flows neatly into the side panels.

    The new multi-spoke wheels are quite neat, especially with the golden finish on the ‘Candy Emerald Green’ colour option. The other colour option on offer is ‘Metallic Moondust Gray’ and it gets black alloy wheels.

    Powering the bike is the same 649cc parallel-twin engine as the standard Z650, and though Kawasaki claims it has tuned the engine for better low- and mid-range response, output figures remain absolutely identical – 68hp at 8,000rpm and 64Nm at 6,700rpm. Much of the chassis is also identical, with a trellis frame suspended on a 41mm telescopic fork and preload-adjustable monoshock, and twin 300mm discs up front and a single 220mm disc at the rear.

    At Rs 6.65 lakh, the Z650RS costs Rs 41,000 more than the Z650 and Rs 4,000 more than the Ninja 650. The more powerful Triumph Trident, meanwhile, is priced at Rs 6.95 lakh.
