Choosing a motorcycle is a difficult decision with new features being introduced with almost every launch. Let’s say you are in the market looking for an upgrade from your 300-cc motorcycle or trying to wiggle into litre-bikes territory progressively, a middle-weight could be exactly what you need. Well, we’ve ridden the 2017 Kawasaki Ninja 650 and you can catch the first ride review in the June issue of Bike India. Until then, check out these nine new features that the motorcycle has to offer.
