The MY22 Kawasaki Ninja 650 has been unveiled by India Kawasaki Motors Pvt Ltd (IKM). At a starting price of Rs 6,61,000, the Ninja 650 will be offered in two colors: Pearl Robotic White and Lime Green (ex-showroom).
The motorcycle’s principal features include a 649cc parallel-twin engine, a new sharper look with dual LED headlamps, 4.3″ TFT color instrumentation, smartphone connectivity via Rideology The App, and Dunlop Sportmax Roadsport 2 tires. The Ninja 650 is priced at Rs 6,61,000 (ex-showroom), with deliveries beginning in September. It is powered by a 649cc parallel-twin engine with eight valves that produce 67 horsepower at 8,000 rpm and 64 Nm at 6,700 rpm. In related news, Kawasaki India recently announced a price increase for their model lineup, which will take effect in August 2021.
The Kawasaki Vulcan S, a middleweight urban cruiser, will cost Rs 6.10 lakh, representing a Rs 6,000 increase. The brand’s middleweight streetfighter, the Kawasaki Z650, will be priced at Rs 6.24 lakh, up to Rs 6,000 from its current price. Kawasaki, on the other hand, is not only concerned with performance but also with engine efficiency. This bike has been designed to be more cost-effective and efficient in terms of gasoline consumption. Not only that, but a ninja’s appearance says it all. Kawasaki has been able to establish this design language as a standard, and it has proven to be successful.
The price of the company’s Kawasaki W800 vintage cruiser will increase by Rs 7,000, bringing the total price to Rs 7.26 lakh. Moving up the displacement ladder, the Kawasaki Z900 will be priced at Rs 8.42 lakh from August 2021, representing an 8,000-rupee price increase.
