Kawasaki has pretty much ruled the 650cc segment for over ten years now, thanks to its trusty parallel-twin engine which has spawned almost all body styles you can think of - sports bike, naked, adventure and even a cruiser. Last year they added a retro-themed street bike to that mix with the 1977 Z650-B1 inspired Z650RS. Another motorcycle that stirred up the 650cc segment last year is the Triumph Trident which filled the void left by the friendly and accessible Street Triple 675, with a petite one-size-fits-all frame and modern-day electronics to lure newcomers to the world of bigger motorcycles. Meanwhile, Honda brought in the much-awaited CB650R to India and despite being priced high, it has managed to sell out almost as quickly as its faired sibling. All these machines are not only diverse in their engine configuration but also fit in a wide price bracket. While that means that your pocket size will ideally dictate what your pick, we are going to give you perspective on which bike could work better for you so that you can make a more informed choice.
