Kawasaki Z500 Metallic Spark Black / Metallic Matte Graphene Steel Gray

Metallic Spark Black / Metallic Matte Graphene Steel Gray

Kawasaki Ninja 500 New, Larger Displacement Engine

POWERFUL, RIDER-FRIENDLY 451 cc PARALLEL-TWIN ENGINE

Ample power from the 451 cc engine is available through the entire rpm range to make it easy for riders to use, no matter what kind of riding they are doing, from low-end power for accelerating off the line in the city to top-end revs for riding on the highway. The engine in the new Z500 is up the task, no matter what it may be.
Kawasaki Ninja 500 Assist & Slipper Clutch

ASSIST & SLIPPER CLUTCH

Kawasaki's Assist & Slipper Clutch results in a light clutch pull for even more rider-friendly and manageable riding in everyday situations, and reduced skipping and hopping from the rear for better sport riding and added confidence.
Kawasaki Z500 Lightweight Trellis Frame

LIGHTWEIGHT TRELLIS FRAME

The Z500 features a trellis frame similar in design to that of the Ninja H2. Kawasaki’s advanced dynamic rigidity analysis was used to ensure optimum rigidity with light weight. The engine is rigid-mounted and used as a stressed member. The frame design contributes significantly to the bike’s low curb mass.
Kawasaki Z500 Light predictable handling

LIGHT, PREDICTABLE HANDLING

The chassis has a supersport-style short-wheelbase/long-swingarm design, complemented by an optimised trail setting that delivers light, natural handling. The bike's light weight also contributes to the easy handling and facilitates manoeuvring when off the bike, such as when parking.
Kawasaki Z500 Large Diameter Brake Disc

LARGE-DIAMETER Ø310 mm BRAKE DISC

Measuring Ø310 mm (the same disc size used on the Z1000), the Z500's semi-floating front disc offers sure stopping power. ABS offers added reassurance when riding.
Kawasaki Z500 Reach

CONFIDENCE-INSPIRING REACH TO THE GROUND

While seat height is 785 mm, the slim design of both the seat and the rear of the engine gives riders an unobstructed line for their feet to reach the ground. The seat's flat shape offers ample padding in the front portion without sacrificing the comfortable reach to the ground, which helps riders enjoy the bike with confidence.
Kawasaki Z500 Ergonomics for Control

ERGONOMICS FOR CONTROL

Relaxed rider triangle accommodates a wide range of rider sizes and riding situations, contributing to its rider-friendly character. The relatively upright riding position and wide handlebar put the rider in the ideal position for active control, facilitating dynamic, sporty riding.
Kawasaki Z500 Latest Design Z face

LATEST-DESIGN Z "FACE"

The Z500's "face" is based around a newly designed triple headlight unit, enveloped by a sharp front cowl to give it an intense look. The triple LED headlight design (same as used on the Z7 Hybrid) features two upper headlights acting as the low beams, and a single lower headlight functioning as the high beam. The design was intended to keep focus on the two low beam headlights. Belying their compact size, the new headlights deliver excellent lighting performance.
Kawasaki Z500 Intense Supernaked Design

INTENSE SUPERNAKED DESIGN

The new Z500 has a sharp, aggressive style and retains the large-volume design of other bikes in the Z series to create an aggressive, agile, street-oriented look. Its muscular, athletic bodywork reflects its performance while forming a flowing design that appears to float above the engine. Like other models in the Z Series, sugomi design elements (crouching stance, low-positioned head and upswept tail) give it a silhouette instantly recognisable as a Kawasaki Supernaked.
Kawasaki Z500 High Grade Cockpit

HIGH-GRADE COCKPIT

The Z500 is equipped with a high-contrast full LCD instrument panel. The sophisticated instrument design features a well-thought-out display, with a bar-style tachometer that reaches over the speedometer and other displayed data. Smartphone connectivity enables riders to connect with their machines to enjoy display notifications, riding logs, and community features.
