Kawasaki Planning to Launch 4 New Bikes in India this Month

A recent report by ZigWheels suggest that Kawasaki may launch its 4 new products in India this month. The extended lineup will include the new retro modern W800, extremely sharp Z900 and two replacements for older models (2017 Ninja 650 and 2017 Z650). The middle weight naked Z650 will be a replacement for the aged ER-6N of India. The Kawasaki motorcycles were unveiled at Intermot and EICMA 2016 while W800 has even been spotted on display in a company dealership.


Kawasaki Z650

The new Kawasaki Ninja 650 and Z650 share the same platform, losing around 18 kgs when compared to their older versions. This makes them the most efficient motorcycles of their segment, easily beating Benelli TNT 600i and Hyosung GT650R in terms of performance and refinement in its segment. They are now Euro 4 compliant and claims 8 percent more efficiency than the earlier models. The best part is the addition of dual channel Bosch 9.1 ABS and Nissin brake calipers.


Kawasaki Z900

Kawasaki Z900 is a replacement for Z800 internationally. It carries a 948 cc, 4-cylinder engine producing 125 PS at 9500 rpm and 98.6 Nm at 7700 rpm. Kawasaki brings the Z800 as a CBU and it wont be difficult for them to replace the same with the bigger version. The 650 cc models are localized, hence getting the best price tag a bike could get for its performance values. All these models will help Kawasaki take over the sales from various Japanese and European motorcycle brands on sale in the country.


2017 Kawasaki Ninja 650

W800 is a different story, bringing no such urge to race as all other Kawasaki bikes on the list. It is more like a collectible and carries a 773 cc, air cooled engine producing 47 HP at 6500 rpm and 60 Nm at just 2500 rpm. The peak power delivery at such small rpm makes it ideal machine for relaxed riding. It uses a single front disc brake and may arrive in India in its Final Edition. Due to its Euro 3 compliant engine, it will be discontinued before April 2017 internationally.
