Kawasaki Ninja 650 KRT Edition
It comes equipped with 649cc 4-stroke parallel twin, liquid-cooled, DOHC, 8 valves engine with 6-speed transmission. Ninja 650's engine churns out 50.2kW of maximum power at 8,000 rpm, and 65.7Nm of maximum torque at 6,500 rpm.
The new bodywork is complemented by the new double-pipe perimeter-style frame and the Ninja 650’s characteristic offset lay down rear suspension.
The bike has a wheelbase of 1,410mm, ground clearance of 130mm, seat height of 790mm, and fuel tank capacity of 15 litres. Kawasaki Ninja 650 KRT Edition’s overall dimensions are 2,115mm x 740mm x 1,135mm.

Like the Ninja ZX-10R, the new Ninja 300 uses a floating-style windscreen with a gap between the cowl and the windscreen. Its fin design and large ventilation holes in the fairing have a design similar to that of the Ninja ZX14R.
Kawasaki Ninja 300's Assist & Slipper Clutch was developed based on feedback from racing activities. The clutch uses two types of cams (an assist cam and a slipper cam), offering two new functions not available on the standard clutch of the Ninja 250R.
Similar to the Ninja ZX-10R and Ninja ZX-6R, dual throttle valves give precise control of intake air, resulting in linear throttle response across the rpm range. Dual throttle valves also contribute to combustion efficiency, claims the company.
