2012 Kawasaki Ninja 650R to be launched on 9th August 2012 - Images & details

It has almost been an year now for all the motorbike enthusiasts in India when the company stopped taking the bookings of the monster in India. Oh yes, we are talking about your most favourite Kawaki Ninja 650R. Thought the company had started accepted the bookings on 15th July 2012 but for all those who had already booked this monster, will start getting the deliveries from 09th August 2012, this is the time when the bike gets launched in India.

The 2012 Ninja 650R, which comes with a host of changes has even given way to the 2013 version internationally, even India is yet to see the 2012 version. That said, the 2013 model doesn’t add anything much to the motorcycle except the ABS safety option and a wider choice of paint jobs.

The Ninja 650R will be followed by a naked 650-750cc bike from Kawasaki, but nothing is confirmed as yet. Also known as the ER-6F, the 2012 model year Ninja 650R gets an updated front fascia, with slight modifications to the front fairing, fuel tank, seats and the tail section. The changes are not drastic but are significant in their own way, making the Ninja 650R that much better.

The 2012 Ninja 650R, that will come to us, will sport the revised front end and updated tail section. Powering the 2-12 Ninja 650R is the same 649cc, 72 BHP parallel twin that has been now tweaked for better response in low and mid range. The 2012 model of the 650R that we get also sports an all new twin-spar perimeter frame that should make the bike one step ahead of previous model in terms of handling prowess. As in the international markets, safely expect the upgraded Ninja 650R to come with a small price increase over the last model.
