Kawasaki Ninja 650L
Kawasaki have updated the previous Ninja 650L with an all-new model for 2017. Lighter, much more stylish and learner friendly it has a trellis frame, ABS brakes, Ninja styling and a torquey parallel twin-cylinder four-stroke tuned for maximum torque from low rpm and a linear power delivery through to the 9500rpm redline.
We recently spent a full day testing the Ninja at the Australian press launch held in the Wiseman’s Ferry, NSW region and had the opportunity to test the bikes in a range of conditions from suburbia to open country roads, wet and dry, plus some great Twisties as well. I came away impressed and found that not only is the Ninja 650L a great LAMS machine it would also rate as a good all-rounder for the more experienced among us.
