Kawasaki India has launched the 2023 Kawasaki Ninja 650 in India, priced at Rs 7.12 lakh (ex-showroom). The mid-level sports bike will be available for consumers in India in the Lime green paint scheme. Moreover, the new iteration of the motorcycle comes with loads of features and gets the KRTC (Kawasaki Traction Control) feature as the newest name in the feature list.
Kawasaki is no stranger to the pursuit of performance, excitement, and all-out fun, and nothing embodies this philosophy more than the new MY23 Ninja 650 motorcycle. It is one of the most well-balanced motorcycles Kawasaki has produced. Along with the renowned sleek Kawasaki Ninja appearance, it offers the excellent refined engine and chassis performance and is easy to handle.
Kawasaki’s sport and supersport motorcycle line-up are back stronger than ever for 2023, with several models set to hit dealerships soon. After Versys 650 KRTC upgradation, Ninja 650 is also equipped with Kawasaki TRaction Control (KTRC) in the 650-cc segment. Kawasaki’s advanced traction control system provides both enhanced sports riding performance and peace of mind under certain conditions to negotiate low-traction surfaces with confidence.
The KRTC system looks at several parameters to get an accurate real-time picture and allows riders to select between two modes to suit their riding situation and preference. Mode 1 is the least intrusive, helping to manage traction during cornering, and is designed with sport riding in mind. In Mode 2, intervention occurs earlier, meaning when excessive wheel spin is detected, the engine output is reduced to allow grip to be regained. This helps riders navigate wet pavement or bad stretches of road. Additionally, riders may elect to turn the system off.
Highlights of the MY23 Ninja 650 are the New KTRC (Kawasaki Traction Control), 649cc parallel-twin engine (Cleaner Emissions), Sharper New styling with Twin LED Headlamps, 4.3” TFT colour instrumentation, Smartphone connectivity via RIDEOLOGY THE APP and Dunlop Sportmax Roadsport 2 tyres .
Kawasaki motorcycles possess both power and grace, so they are often recognized as being different from other bikes. This results from certain guiding principles adopted at the design stage. Rideology is Kawasaki’s rider-centric development philosophy focused on how the riding experience offered by a Kawasaki is crafted, ensuring that our machines are fun to ride and rewarding to control. This approach has been the force behind many of our legendary machines and in our pursuit of all possibilities. It will continue to guide the future creation of Kawasaki motorcycles.
