2017 Kawasaki Ninja 650 Review

The Kawasaki Ninja is one of the most recognized models in the world, right up there with the likes of Honda’s CBR  and Suzuki’s GSX-R  families. The 2017 650 models can trace their roots back to the original 650R that rolled out 11 years ago. In order to stay competitive in this market, there necessarily have been a number of changes through the years, and the ’17 models benefit from a number of updates and revisions. The ’17 MY lineup sees the new-and-improved Ninja 650 in both the ABS and non-ABS versions as well as the black and green, Kawasaki Racing Team livery. Today I’m going to tackle this newest, mid-size Ninja and check out all the new stuff Kawi packed on in an effort to keep its iconic sportbike line relevant.
