        If Kawasaki’s signature lime green paint job is too Power Ranger for your taste, then the latest color option for the 2022 Z650 is probably right up your alley.

        Dubbed ‘Pearl Robotic White/Metallic Matte Graphenesteel Gray,’ this classy white scheme comes with a red frame, red decals, and red wheel stickers. The combination brings to mind a Japanese flag-inspired aesthetic, which definitely works with the sport naked’s character.

        Another possible inspiration could be the mech designs from the Mobile Suit Gundam franchise, hence the ‘Pearl Robotic White’ part. Either way, this new color scheme is certainly less divisive than Candy Lime Green.

        Color aside, the 2022 model year Z650 is the same as this year’s. Its 649cc liquid-cooled, four-stroke, parallel-twin engine produces 67.3hp at 8,000rpm and 64Nm of torque at 6,700rpm. Mated to the engine is a six-speed manual gearbox that sends power to the rear via a chain final drive.

        Suspension is simple yet effective, with a 41mm conventional front fork paired to a preload-adjustable horizontal back-link rear shock. Braking is taken care of by two dual-piston calipers and twin 300-mm petal-shaped rotors and a single-piston caliper with 220mm petal disc.

        The Z650 comes with one of Kawasaki’s greatest innovations: its class-leading TFT display with easy-to-read layout and smartphone connectivity.

        European customers will be able to get the Z650 in different configurations. The Performance option comes with a rear seat cowl, smoked windscreen, gel tank pads, and an Akrapovic full exhaust system. Meanwhile, the new Urban package has a 30-liter top case and accompanying mounting bracket.

        The white scheme, along with the Urban option, will be available in Europe starting October this year. We’ll have to wait a bit longer for it to reach Philippine shores, though.
