Can you ride the Kawasaki Z650 on an A2 licence?
Yes, you can ride the Kawasaki Z650 (2020 onwards) on an A2 motorbike licence. However, you will need to fit a restrictor kit to reduce its power output and make it A2 licence compliant!
Kawasaki Z650 (2020 onwards)
The 2017 Kawasaki Z650 was already a very good motorcycle and it was an upgrade over the older ER-6N bike. In 2020, Kawasaki released an updated version of the Z650, which is even more polished than its predecessor.
The motorcycle comes with a brand new 649cc parallel-twin engine that is slightly less torquey, but it complies with the Euro5 standards. The suspension and chassis both remain the same, so the riding experience is almost identical.
The Kawasaki Z650 is aimed at beginners, but it will serve you well even if you are an experienced rider. It is a reliable A2-friendly bike that offers great value for money.
A2 Licence Compliance
The Kawasaki Z650 is a 649cc A2-friendly standard bike. It has a power output of 50 kW (67 bhp), which exceeds the 35 kW (47 bhp) limit needed for an A2 licence. The bike has to be restricted by at least 30% to become A2 licence compliant.
You will need a restrictor to ride the Kawasaki Z650 on an A2 motorbike licence. See the restrictor kits section to check out what restrictors are available for the Kawasaki Z650.
