One of the first of the “new wave” of bikes to be made available to the Thai market since 2010 (goodbye shonky secondhand Jap import 400s!), we used to refer to this as “The perfect bike for Thailand” and it is still a very capable machine. Powerful 650cc engine, sharp handling, day long comfort. Unlike itâ€™s faired brother, the ER650f, this oneâ€™s for riders who love the feel of being in the wind â€” a particularly good thing if you mostly ride where the weatherâ€™s hot. All riders agree Kawasakiâ€™s middleweight 650 is a great, fun-to-ride motorcycle.
