The Kawasaki Z650 has been treated to a mild update for 2020, as it passes the new Euro5 emissions standards. 

Changes include a new exhaust and revised airbox, Dunlop Roadsport 2 tyres, a tidier pillion seat and subtle styling tweaks.

It also receives a 4.3-inch full-colour TFT display, which features Bluetooth connectivity, GPS ride logs, phone notifications and motorcycle data.

Unfortunately the Australian market only gets the LAMS-approved Z650L variant, with the updated model expected to continue at $9799 plus on-road costs.

Dealerships are expecting to take delivery of the new Z650 early next year.
