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 Ninja 500 is up the task, no matter what it may be.

Kawasaki Ninja 500 Lightweight Trellis Frame

LIGHTWEIGHT, MANOEUVRABLE CHASSIS

Easy to use is the key, as the compact chassis has been designed to be as user-friendly as possible. Predictable handling thanks to a chassis conceived with light weight, manoeuvrability, and mass centralisation in mind provides excellent feel and inspiring confidence for a wide range of riders. The easy handling also facilitates manoeuvring when parking.

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 Ninja 500 Lightweight 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 Ninja 500 Large Brake Disc

LARGE-DIAMETER Ø310 mm BRAKE DISC

Measuring Ø310 mm (the same disc size used on the Ninja ZX-14R), the Ninja 500's semi-floating front disc offers sure stopping power. ABS offers added reassurance when riding.

Kawasaki Ninja 500 Relaxed Sporty Riding Position

RELAXED, SPORTY RIDING POSITION

Relaxed rider triangle accommodates a wide range of rider sizes and riding situations. Compared to some other models (whose somewhat extreme riding position compromises comfort), the elevated handle position and slightly foot-forward footpeg position put the rider in a position to control the bike while also offering rider comfort.

Kawasaki Ninja 500 Latest Design Ninja Face

LATEST-DESIGN NINJA "FACE"

Compact hybrid projector/reflector headlights - like those of the new Ninja ZX-6r - are a key element of the Ninja 500's face. The headlights' low-beams are compact, plastic projector lamps (mono-focus LED technology), while the high-beams and position lamps are reflector-type lamps. The deep-set position of the reflectors of the unlit parts of the headlights makes them appear dark, creating a fierce expression. Black extensions between the low- and high-beams contribute to the black image and help realise a high-quality finish.

Kawasaki Ninja 500 High grade cockpit

HIGH-GRADE COCKPIT

The Ninja 500 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.

Kawasaki Ninja 500 Framed Layered Bodywork

FLOWING, LAYERED BODYWORK

Moving from front to rear with a flowing, layered design, the bodywork on the new Ninja 500 offers a fresh impression, while sporty elements give the machine a purposeful, race-inspired look that owners will be proud to own and show off.
