    Quick-Revving, 649cc Parallel-Twin Engine
    • Liquid-cooled, DOHC, 8-valve fuel injected twin cylinder delivers smooth, responsive performance, especially in the low to medium rpm range
    • Excellent mid-range power, exceptional roll-on response and impressive passing performance make even commuter traffic enjoyable
    • Silky smooth engine vibes via a 180° crankshaft driven balancer shaft, which in turn drives the water pump
    • Oil jets on the connecting rod big ends spray oil on the undersides of the pistons to aid cooling
    • Lightweight plug-mounted ignition coils deliver a hot spark and save space
    • 40mm wider radiator offers increased cooling efficiency
    • Coolant routing travels directly to the engine cases, then follows internal passages to the cylinder and head to reduce external plumbing and simplify the entire cooling system
    • Fine tuned shift lever position is easier to use
    Digital Fuel Injection
    • Revised fuel injection settings boosts the engine's bottom-end torque while letting it rev quicker
    • Sub-throttle valve equipped 38mm 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 carburetor
    • Auto-fast idle system simplifies starting and helps ensure that the catalyzer reaches optimum temperature quickly
    • New, lightweight fuel pump mounted inside the fuel tank.
    Compact Engine Design
    • Powerful twin-cylinder engine is the most compact in its category, which helps reduce the dimension of the entire motorcycle and allows use of a slim, minimalist frame
    • Triangular setup of the crankshaft and transmission shafts makes the engine short front-to-back
    • Transmission input shaft, output shaft and change drum are contained in a “cassette”-style package that allows a compact layout and eases transmission maintenance chores
    • Semi-dry sump design reduces engine height
    • Plated, linerless aluminum cylinders with a narrow cylinder pitch keep the engine light and slim
    Cleaner Emissions
    • Efficient fuel injection and a three-way catalyzer inside the exhaust produce very low emissions, able to pass the stringent Euro-III emission regulations
    • New 300-cell catalyzer is more compact and lighter than previous 200-cell unit
    • Under-engine muffler placement improves mass centralization and the bike's low center of gravity
    Reduced Vibration
    • Rubber mounts replace the rigid upper-rear engine mounts to reduce the amount of vibration transferred to the rider through the seat
    • Handlebar is rubber-mounted to lessen vibration transmitted through the handle grips
    • Rider and passenger footpegs are rubber coated to further reduce vibration
    Lighter Handling Trellis Frame
    • All-new frame which retains the key Ninja 650R elements — a slim, low, lightweight and compact design that is narrow at the knees and footpegs for rider comfort and control
    • Featuring reduced rigidity, the strong, high-tensile steel trellis frame not only looks lightweight, but it is – rivaling that of aluminum frames
    • Ideal frame stiffness balance achieved through extensive 3D analysis translates directly into superb handling
    • The frame, rear suspension and swingarm designs flow together with an integrated line running from the steering head to the rear hub
    • Short front-to-back dimensions of the engine allow for a long swingarm and a short wheelbase combination that contributes to the light and nimble handling
    • Cleaner frame joint finishes improve overall quality of the bike
    More Rigid Swingarm
    • Swingarm stiffened to balance the reduction of the frame's rigidity – due primarily to the rubber engine mounts
    • Swingarm now has a D-shaped cross-section
    • The new swingarm and revised stabilizer design further contribute to the Ninja 650R's higher-quality appearance
    • Elegant one-piece rider/passenger footpeg stays complement the new swingarm and stabilizer
    • Revised chain adjuster design also contributes to the improved appearance
    • New front and rear suspension settings match the changes to the frame and swingarm for lighter, more rider-friendly handling
    • New shape of the 41mm fork lower ends around the axle shaft add to the bike's performance and enhance its high-quality image
    Confidence Inspiring Ergonomics
    • An ideal handlebar, seat and footpeg relationship results in a comfortable and natural riding position suiting a wide range of riders
    • Frame narrowed just aft of the fuel tank enabled a slimmer seat, making the reach to the ground even easier
    • The offset single-shock rear suspension layout with the battery located beside the shock instead of beneath it allows a lower seat height as well
    • Low seat height and slim overall design make it easy to plant both feet firmly on the ground when stopped
    • Dual 300mm front petal disc brakes with twin 27mm piston front brake calipers and a single 220mm rear petal disc deliver plenty of braking power
    • New front brake master cylinder houses a new ball-joint and revised pivot location to deliver smoother actuation of its new 14mm master cylinder piston
    Sleek New Supersport Bodywork
    • New dual headlight design features multi-reflector bulb hoods and the twin position lights – like its Ninja supersport brethren
    • Rider comfort is improved via a lip at the top of the revised windscreen, which helps deflect air away from the rider, along with a duct in the center of the cowling that creates an “air curtain” to reduce wind buffeting at higher speeds
    • New, taller fuel tank – especially noticeable when viewed from the side –adds to the bike's crouching appearance and allows fuel capacity to remain the same despite adding a fuel level sensor – for the new fuel gauge
    • A flush-surface fuel cap and its sharp-edged motif give the new tank a distinctive new look
    • Sharper, edged lines give the Ninja 650R a more aggressive, crouching supersport look, yet the bodywork still accentuates the frame
    • Distinctive Ninja supersport design elements of the front cowling and the fairings, such as the judicious combination of colored and black panels enhance its sportier image and compact appearance
    • New integrated front turn signals with clear lenses and orange bulbs
    • Completing the bike's aggressive sport appearance is a sharper tail cowling featuring a thin new LED taillight, revised rear turn signals, new license plate bulb housing and a slimmer rear mud flap
    • An inner rear fender was added to help keep the underside of the sleek new tail cowl clean
    • The turn signals also function as flashing hazard lights
    • A new longer front fender keeps mud splashing to a minimum and its two-tone design matches the Ninja 650R's light, compact theme
    • Storage options include four tie-down hooks for baggage or a spare helmet to be secured to the seat and a storage space under the seat with room for a U-lock or similar device
    • Mirror design is a similar supersport-style to that on the new Ninja ZX™-6R
    • Positioned 14mm further out from the centerline, they also offer an improved rear view
    • Attractive six-spoke supersport-style wheels augment the bike's light look while reducing unsprung weight
    • New MotoGP-inspired multi-function instrumentation, which includes a new fuel gauge, digital speedometer, clock, odometer, dual trip meters and a bar-style digital tachometer
    • The new layout allows the clock and trip meter to be viewed simultaneously
    • Red backlighting for the LCD screen adds to the sporty image while the area around the instrument panel presents a clean, finished front cowl interior
    • Redesigned handlebar holder and new curved shapes on the brake master cylinder reservoir and clutch lever contribute further to the Ninja 650R's improved appearance
