Kawasaki India has yet to bring this new colour to its Indian customers.

The 2025 Kawasaki Ninja 650 gets vibrant new colour options which are targeted at international markets for now. While riders seeking pure performance upgrades might have to wait, those who crave a fresh aesthetic are in for a treat with this new colour scheme that departs from the usual lime green and black. The Metallic Matte Dark Gray is a dark and stealthy grey that gives the bike a menacing presence. The Ebony accents blend seamlessly with the gray, creating a cohesive and blackout look. 

For 2025, the Kawasaki Ninja 650 has two new colour schemes. The first option is a Candy Steel Furnace Orange. It is bright and contrasting and looks like a custom plane on a Kawasaki Bike. This fiery orange takes centre stage, demanding attention while Metallic Spark Black and Metallic Royal Purple accents add the balance that is required. 

The second colourway leans into Kawasaki's heritage. Metallic Matte Old School Green is a dash of nostalgia for classic Kawasaki motorcycles, a colour synonymous with performance and racing pedigree. Metallic Spark Black complements the green beautifully, creating a sophisticated yet sporty look that evokes a sense of timeless cool. Adding to this, Kawasaki throws in a Ninja 650 KRT Edition. This variant wears the Kawasaki Racing Team's livery in lime green with white and black stripes.

No Mechanical Changes

The 2025 Kawasaki Ninja 650 retains the proven formula. At the heart of the beast lies a 649cc parallel-twin engine, pumping out 67.3 bhp at 8,000 rpm and a peak torque of 65.76 Nm at 6,700 rpm. Shifting gears is made smooth and effortless thanks to a six-speed gearbox equipped with an assist and slipper clutch.


The ride experience remains feature-packed on the 2025 Ninja 650. A 4.3-inch TFT colour instrument display provides clear and concise information. LED lighting ensures excellent visibility in all conditions. Smartphone connectivity keeps riders connected on the go. Safety is paramount, with a traction control system and three riding modes to suit different riding styles and conditions. Dual-channel ABS provides confident stopping power.

Suspension duties are managed by a 41mm telescopic fork and a mono-shock. Braking performance comes courtesy of 300mm twin petal discs with dual-piston callipers up front, while a single-piston calliper paired with a 220mm petal disc handles stopping power in the back.

Pricing and Availability - A Glimpse for Indian Riders?

The 2025 Ninja 650's price starts at $8,299 (₹6.93 lakh) for the non-ABS variant in the US. While there's no official confirmation on the Indian launch yet, considering the popularity of the Ninja 650 in the country, a future arrival with a slight premium over the current ₹ 7.16 lakh (ex-showroom) price tag wouldn't be surprising.
