    Love it

    published

    My bike is 2012 model but I love it. Enough power, goes like a rocket. has done 7000Km but no issues apart from needing a battery change. Bought from eBay for $60 and took 20 minutes to change. Comfortable seat, hard to do many Kms though. Definitely recommend. Looks great and sexy.

    Great commuter bike!

    published

    I purchased a 2013 version of this bike (current generation) and am very pleased with it. Comfortable riding position, exception fuel consumption (< 4.0 L/100km average even when commuting in traffic) and a good note when you put an exhaust on (I added an IXIL system). The two cylinder has plenty of low-end grunt (although it obviously misses the top-end power of the 4-cylinder bikes) and it always pulls away well in traffic.
    Starts perfectly, ABS is a life-saver (literally!), parts are cheap and easy to replace and pillion is super-comfy (according to my wife). I'm coming from 4-cylinder super-sports bikes, and this bike is comfy, practical and reliable.

    I have ridden this bike for approximately 2500 km.

    Ninja 650 non-LAMS, ABS

    published

    Had it for a year and done 10,000 kms of hard city commuting. It holds up very well and has given precisely zero trouble. The ABS is really good for the type of riding I do, especially when someone brakes hard in front in the wet. Riding position is comfortable, power is great, looks are great, suspension is great, weight dist is great. The gearbox can be a bit clunky shifting from neutral into first, but you quickly get used to that. I find the seating marginally low for me given I'm around 182cm, but not uncomfortable by any means. Not sure what magic they've done with the steering, but you can flick this thing so easily. Very satisfied with the purchase!

    Ninja 650 ABS

    My daughter has a 650,couple of years old, and is having braking problems, took it in to get it checked out, they really don't now , but said it could need a new ABS system ??? at a cost off $1000.00, what are your thoughts??

    I would suggest you to get it checked with another mechanic before getting it fixed. If its the abs go to wreckers and find the same part and you try fixing it. That's what I did when my bike fell down went to wreckers bought the parts and fixed it myself. Regards Bhaskar

    Ninja 650 ABS

    I'm buying my 1st bike and thinking the ninja 650 LAMS. Just want to get some input on if it's good on the freeway? I travel 15-20 mins on the freeway each way to work and back so hoping this bike is suitable for that. Everything else about the 650 sounds good to me so hopefully freeways will be a breeze too. Cheers

    It'll be just fine, in fact they go beautifully at highway speeds.
