Additional photos of this Kawasaki Z650 are available here for your perusal.

Known as the KZ650 here in the US and the Z650 everywhere else, this middleweight perfectly fit under the KZ900 in Kawasaki’s lineup. It was introduced in 1976 with three color choices: Candy Super Red, Candy Emerald Blue, or Candy Emerald Green. Over 7 years of production it developed a reputation as a reliable machine that handled much better than its bigger brothers.

Take a great trip back in time with this segment from Kawasaki’s Good Times Theatre – designed to be played in Kawasaki dealerships:

This example is VIN: KZ650B006633, Engine #: KZ650BE006874.

The odometer shows 60,024 kilometers (37,297 miles).

This came to us from the collection in South Africa that we’ve recently been selling. We do not have maintenance history on it, though it came to us from the third owner who notes that it was put into storage in 1985. In preparation for the listing, we cleaned the carbs, changed the oil/filter, installed a Pingel petcock with 44mm adapter plate, had the tank cleaned/lined/painted, detailed the bike, and installed a new battery.

The tank has been lined.

Pingel petcock.

Cosmetic Blemishes:

The sale includes two keys.

It is riding on Bridgestone (front) and Avon (rear) tires that have aged out and should be replaced.

Currently located at our facility in Santa Monica, California, this Z650 is offered on a clean Oregon title. Have any KZ650 stories or questions? Let us know in the comments below!
