India Kawasaki Motors (IKM) has updated the Z650 naked motorcycle for the 2019 model year. The 2019 Kawasaki Z650 joins the Versys 650 and the Z900, which were launched recently and has been priced at ? 5.29 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). The price remains unchanged over the current version, while you do get new body graphics as part of the update and will now be available in the metallic flat spark black/metallic spark black colour scheme.
