2024 Kawasaki Z650RS: What’s new

International sales of the Z650RS variant started last year. The upgraded 2024 Z650RS is priced at Rs 7,000 more than its predecessor and comes with traction control, a significant improvement over the previous model. Except for this feature update, the motorcycle’s design, mechanics, size, and hardware are almost identical to the earlier version.

This variant adds two modes to the two-mode Kawasaki Traction Control (KTRC). Mode 1 maximizes traction control for smooth corner departures. In contrast, Mode 2 provides a more forceful intervention for rugged terrain or slippery conditions.

Regarding styling, the Kawasaki Z650RS retains the teardrop-shaped fuel tank, one-piece seat, and circular LED headlamp that evokes vintage motorcycle components. A twin-pod instrument console completes the retro aesthetic while adding modern usefulness to this vintage-inspired design.

The mechanical configuration of the previous and current models is the same: a preload-adjustable horizontal link system at the rear and a telescopic fork at the front. Along with dual-channel ABS, front, rear, and single-disc brakes are available for braking.
