Kawasaki has announced new colour schemes for the 2019 Ninja ZX-140R, Versys X-300, Versys 650 And Z900 RS motorcycles for the international market. However, the bikes get no mechanical changes for the new model year and continue with the same specifications. The 2019 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-14R gets a new Metallic Spark Black/Candy Cardinal Red shade for 2019, dropping the green and black paint scheme. The 2019 Kawasaki Z900RS, on the other hand, gets a new shade inspired from the iconic Z1's "Jaffa" colour. The new 'Metallic Matte Covert Khaki/Flat Ebony' shade is reminiscent of the original machine of 1972.

For the Versys range, Kawasaki has introduced the 2019 Versys 650 in the new Metallic Moondust Gray/Metallic Flat Spark Black shade that is available alongside the silver/black and green/black paint options. Lastly, the 2019 Kawasaki Versys-X 300 gets the new Metallic Moondust Gray/Metallic Flat Spark Black shade alongside the Green/Black colour scheme. The Versys branding on the fuel tank is also more prominent on the X-300 like the larger Versys 650, while the spoked wheels are now finished in black as opposed to the silver ones on the current model.
