If you’re attracted to naked bikes, the Kawasaki Z650 has a lot to offer a newer rider – aside from being part of the style-of-the-moment. The Z650 shares its 649cc parallel-Twin engine with the Ninja 650, but it is tuned for more bottom-end and mid-range power which is right where newer riders want it. The riding position is ideal for urban use, as is the 30.9-in. seat height. The Kawasaki Z650 retails for $6,999 (add $400 for ABS).
