I got a chance to ride the new Z650 on a rare cool, drizzly day in southern California, on curvy mountain roads, in urban traffic and along the coastal cliffs near Dana Point. This middleweight Z was designed to be approachable for beginners, but with enough spunk to keep veteran riders interested. Its styling is what Kawasaki calls “Sugomi-inspired,” which basically means “not as outrageous as the Z1000, but still pretty cool.”
