2012 Kawasaki Ninja 650 R: Seduction Video

2012 Kawasaki Motorcycle Video

Completely revamped for 2012, the Kawasaki Ninja 650 R is a do-it-all machine. From daily commutes to the twisties, the Ninja 650 R is more than capable of satisfying the rider.

Kawasaki took the already proven platform, and updated the frame, suspension, bodywork and of course the engine. When combined, the 2012 Ninja 650 will surely outperform its predecessors that have been in existence since 2006.

Speaking of the new Ninja 650 R, Kawasaki says: "the new-and-massively-improved version promises even more of the all-around capability that suits beginners and veterans alike."

And just as the Japanese motorcycle marquee likes to up the ante with its revisions on motorcycles, it equally likes to up the marketing ante. Attached above is the first official commercial to be released on the new Ninja, titled "Performance Seduction."
