Ninja 650 ABS
The Ninja 650 ABS improves upon the balanced package of it’s predecessor. Increased engine performance adds more fun. A slim frame and seat offer more comfort and lighter handling. The even more aggressive Ninja styling, featuring wind-tunnel derived bodylines, is complemented by an adjustable windscreen. Equally at home in the city, on the highway or twisting through the hills, the Ninja 650 ABS is perfect choice for all riders.
649 cm³ Parallel Twin
The 2015 Ninja 650’s Liquid-cooled, DOHC, 8-valve 649 cm3 Parallel Twin with fuel injection delivers smooth, responsive performance, especially in the low and medium rpm ranges. The engine has been tuned for rider-friendly power characteristics that will inspire confidence in new riders.
The engine’s excellent mid-range power characteristics make the bike especially fun to ride at medium speeds on city streets. Roll-on response is exceptional, offering impressive passing performance.
Dual ø300 mm petal discs are gripped by new twin-piston calipers. The design of the new calipers contributes to the bike’s sportier image, while new brake pad material offers a stronger initial bite when the brakes are first applied.
The front brake master cylinder features a lever ratio that contributes to both increased controllability and increased overall brake force. Large rear disc measures ø250 mm. The increased controllability and brake force are reassuring when touring or when riding with a heavy load.
The riding position was specially designed to inspire rider confidence. An ideal relationship between the handlebars, seat and footpegs reqults in a comfortable and natural position suitable for a wide range of riders.
Styling cues taken from the Ninja supersport models gives the Ninja 650 ABS an aggressive, sporty appearance. All lines move forward and downward, suggesting a crouching stance with a sharp mass-forward look.
The sculpted shape of the multi-reflector headlamp’s bulb hoods is an example of the attention given to detail on this model. The dual headlamp desing features twin position lamps.
The large openings in the side of the fairings are not only for the sporty look; they assist with heas dissapation.
38 mm Keihin throttle bodies
The DFI settings boost the engine’s bottom-end power while letting it rev more quickly. The sub-throttle valve equipped 38 mm Keihin throttle bodies offer optimum performance and rideability.
Located behind the main throttle valves, the sub-throttles are controlled by the DFI system’s ECU for a precise throttle response, similar to a constant velocity carburettor.
Smoother power delivery
Tucked away under the engine is the stylish exhaust for the Ninja 650 ABS. The under engine muffler with large volume internal construction delivers smooth torque in the everyday range below 7,000rpm. The increased performance facilitates control at lower rpm and contributes to the enhanced enjoyment of the Ninja 650.
On the header pipes there is a connector tube joining the pipes to help eliminate peaks and valleys in the torque curve, resulting in smoother power delivery.
