The 2018 Ninja 650 was a “hard to look” bike 😀 It’s not that bad but also not a pretty bike. It’s too hard to say that the 2018 Ninja 650 is a nice sport-touring bike.
It is changing quite much now with the New Kawasaki Ninja 650 2020 model. Yeah I know, it’s kinda a bit boring because the front design is very similar to the Ninja 250/400 and ZX-6R but whatever, the longer we look, the more beautiful the bike. Plus, because the engine is bigger than the Ninja 250/400, the New Ninja 650 2020 is more proportional.
