The new 2011 Kawasaki Ninja 650R has minimal changes from the previous year with a few minor upgrades and a new selection of colors to choose from. The Ninja 650R is able to use a narrow and light-weight frame thanks to the very compact eight-valve 649cc parallel twin engine. Kawasaki engineers have tuned the bike so that the fuel injection and ignition settings help boost the engine’s bottom-end torque and allow the engine to rev up quicker.
The 2011 Ninja 650r features integrated turn signals and a sharp tail cowl built into the semi-sporty styling. The Ninja also features MotoGP inspired instruments and controls. The rider will notice that Kawasaki engineers have put the rider first when designing this motorcycle. The chassis is slim, the controls such as the positioning of the shift lever, and seating is placed as low possible.
The Ninja 650R should appeal to new riders as the motorcycle has a very welcoming and non-intimidating twin cylinder which offers excellent mid-range power and will give a thrill to even the veteran riders.
