Little has changed in seat ergonomics. The seat height is 790 mm, so the machine is also suitable for smaller pilots. One sits very nicely deeply integrated in the machine and the tank is pleasantly narrow in the knee area. The weight of fully fuelled 188 kg is rather uncharacteristically very moderate for Kawasaki - this is very accommodating to A2 pilots.
The most technically important updates are the new 4.3 inch TFT color display and LED lighting. LED may also be standard in the mid-range, but with the TFT display, the Z650 has a unique selling point. The bike can also be paired via smartphone to record e.B. driving with the Rideology app.
Technical helpers such as driving modes and traction control are still searched in vain. However, this is perfectly normal in the middle class, with the exception of the slightly more expensive Trident 660 triumph.
