The new Ninja 650 is a gen­uinely im­pres­sive up­date for the nifty mid­dleweight ER-6F. While the 649cc par­al­lel-twin en­gine has lost 3bhp at peak dur­ing the re­vi­sions needed to get it through Euro4, it’s also gained bet­ter (claimed) fuel econ­omy, and when you off­set the power loss against the weight loss – own­ers will still be win­ning. The new Ninja 650 has shed a hugely im­pres­sive 19kg. The brak­ing hard­ware gains new Nissin calipers, mated to Bosch’s 9.1M ABS mod­ule for su­perb brak­ing con­trol.
