India Kawasaki Motors Pvt. Ltd. (IKM) has announced the launch of a new MY23 Ninja 650 updated with the KRTC (Kawasaki Traction Control) feature. The Ninja 650 will be available in “Lime Green” and the price will be starting at Rs 7,12,000/-(Ex-Showroom).
After Versys 650 KRTC upgradation, Ninja 650 is also equipped with Kawasaki TRaction Control (KTRC) in the 650-cc segment. Kawasaki’s advanced traction control system provides both enhanced sports riding performance and peace of mind under certain conditions to negotiate low-traction surfaces with confidence.
The KRTC system looks at several parameters to get an accurate real-time picture and allows riders to select between two modes to suit their riding situation and preference. Mode 1 is the least intrusive, helping to manage traction during cornering and is designed with sport riding in mind. In Mode 2, intervention occurs earlier, meaning when excessive wheel spin is detected the engine output is reduced to allow grip to be regained. This helps riders navigate wet pavement or bad stretches of road. Additionally, riders may elect to turn the system off.
Highlights of the MY23 Ninja 650 are:
1. The New KTRC (Kawasaki TRaction Control)
2. 649cc parallel-twin engine (Cleaner Emissions)
3. Sharper New styling with Twin LED Headlamps
4. 4.3” TFT colour instrumentation
5. Smartphone connectivity via RIDEOLOGY THE APP
6. Dunlop Sportmax Roadsport 2 tyres
