What makes this middleweight sports bike different from the rest of its competitors is its very comfortable upright seating position, which promises a very relaxed and fatigue-free riding experience. The placement of a low seat height and foot pegs ensures that the Z650 can be ridden even by a short person, also ensuring good visibility and riding dynamics at all speed ranges. The suspension system of the Z650 ABS is equipped with Telescopic Fork at the front and a Horizontal back-link with adjustable preload, Swingarm at the rear.
