Kawasaki Motors Australia has announced updates to its Z650, Z900 and Ninja 1000SX motorcycles for year model 2020.

The superbly balanced Z650 offers Sugomi performance and styling featuring a powerful engine with strong low-mid range torque in a lightweight chassis. The thorough attention given to ensure a high-quality fit & finish results in a machine that riders can be proud to own – an ideal ambassador for the Z brand.

Engine refinements contribute to cleaner emissions and increased mid-range torque, new tyres offer lighter handling, and a redesigned tandem seat offers increased passenger comfort.

As before, nimble handling and superb feedback are complemented by easy-to-manage power delivery and rider-friendly manoeuvrability, offering an ideal blend of sporty performance and everyday versatility designed to accommodate a wide range of riders.

Sharp new styling, highlighted by a new LED headlight and TFT instrumentation, gives this second generation Z650 an even stronger sugomi presence.The thorough attention given to ensure a high-quality fit and finish results in a machine that riders can be proud to own

Updated for 2020, the Z900 maintains the ‘Exciting and Easy’ concept of its predecessor, while offering the next step in aggressive Z sugomi styling. A host of advanced new features – including integrated Riding Modes (combining newly added KTRC and Power modes), new TFT colour instrumentation, smartphone connectivity, all-LED lighting and cleaner emissions – to name a few.

The Z900’s engine and chassis are extremely well matched, making it an excellent all-rounder, able to cater to wide range of riders. Its rider-friendly character (further enhanced with the addition of traction control) is complemented by agile handling and a responsive throttle.

As before, the Z900 will happily accommodate city riding, but as a machine designed to deliver
maximum riding impact, it is most at home carving corners in the hills.

The new Ninja 1000SX marks the fourth generation of a successful sport-touring platform that enables experienced riders to enjoy sporty riding and touring capability from a relaxed position.

Cleaner emissions with the same great performance, sportier, more dynamic new styling featuring a single-sided muffler and all-LED lighting, increased seat comfort for both rider and passenger, and a host of technology updates make this refined sport-tourer more attractive than ever.

All three bikes are anticipated to land in Australia during the early months of 2020, while pricing is still to be confirmed. For more information, visit www.kawasaki.com.au.
