Kawasaki did not change the prices either as they continue to remain as the outgoing model and deliveries will commence in August
India Kawasaki Motors Private Limited has introduced 2019MY version of the Ninja 650 in the domestic market today, just a few weeks after its bigger sibling, Ninja 1000 was launched. Arriving in two variants, the regular 650 costs Rs. 5.49 lakh while the KRT variant is a little expensive by around Rs. 20,000 at Rs. 5.69 lakh (both prices, ex-showroom New Delhi).
The MY2019 update comes less than six months after Kawasaki added a blue colour paint scheme into the Ninja 650 lineup. It has been announced that the said paintjob is discontinued on the 2019 version but it will be up for grabs until the stocks last. Along with KRT shade inspired from motorsports, the metallic black colour has been retained.

Kawasaki did not change the prices either as they continue to remain as the outgoing model and deliveries will commence in August. The 2019 Kawasaki Ninja 650 joins its other 650 cc siblings such as Z650, Versys 650 and recently launched Vulcan 650 S.
No mechanical modifications have been made too as it continues to derive power from 649 cc parallel-twin engine. It is good enough to generate a maximum power output of 68 hp at 8,500 rpm and 65.7 Nm of peak torque at 6,000 rpm and is mated to a six-speed transmission as in the naked Z650.

With Nissin calipers and Bosch 9.1 ABS system, the braking characteristics are on a top-notch level on the middle-weight sportsbike. The 2019 Kawasaki Ninja 650 rides on 41 mm telescopic front forks and horizontal linkless system at the rear.
