Kawasaki’s Ninja 650R has been an entry-level staple since 2006. Bikes like the Ninja 650R, FZ6R and SV650 are ideal for new riders who either need something larger due to their size or can count on being able to handle a little more power than what the typical “beginner bike” comes with. p>
The Kawasaki 300 is a simple, fully faired sportbike that is great for beginners. The motorcycle is capable of sporty weekend riding, cornering or daily commuting. It’s lightweight and has enough power to keep up with traffic without being too heavy to handle.
What does all this get you? Well, it produces 48.5 pound-feet of torque at 6,500 rpm, and with the redline in top gear, the overall ratio spins into a top speed of 131 mph.
With sporty yet comfortable ergonomics, a versatile 649cc parallel-twin engine and an affordable $7,600 price tag, the Ninja 650 is both a comfortable entry-level machine and a machine expected by beginners can enjoy it for many years or even never grow out of it.
A revised exhaust helps unlock a furious, throaty soundtrack, but otherwise the bike is unchanged. That’s not a bad thing, though, as the Ninja 650 (and the ER-6f before it) remains a fun and engaging middleweight, ideal for younger and less experienced riders.
It’s easy to ride and the more upright posture helps you look around in traffic. (Ok, my Supersport experience is limited to about 80 miles on a ZX-10R, but I found it noticeably harder to look around and back in city traffic than it was on my Ninja 650R, which I was riding at the time.)

Top speed is 125 mph, which may sound fast to some, but in the world of modern performance motorcycles, it really isn’t. The Ninja 650 was never intended to be a fast motorcycle, Kawasaki makes other motorcycles for motorcycle enthusiasts who need speed.
The Kawasaki Ninja 650 can last well over 75,000 miles before requiring an engine overhaul. This depends on several factors such as maintenance, driving style and ownership habits. Based on annual mileage of 5,000 miles per year, a well maintained Ninja 650 could last over 15 years.
Kawasaki built the bike using inexpensive and plentiful parts. It therefore means that this bike will be cheap to maintain and parts easily available.
