According to a recent report from IAB, the BS6 Kawasaki Ninja 300 launch has been delayed by two months. Earlier, the updated model of the sports bike was expected to launch in India by October this year. But due to the Coronavirus pandemic, the BS6-compliant model of Ninja 300 is now expected to launch in December 2020.

The brand has officially discontinued the BS4-compliant variant of its entry-level motorcycle in India while its BS6-compliant version has been recently spotted testing near the ARAI facility in Pune further confirming the speculations of an updated engine.

The entry-level Ninja 300 is one of the most cherished motorcycles in the Indian market which had a good run with the customers due to its splendid performance as well as an affordable price tag when compared to the Ninja 400 which has already replaced the smaller displacement Ninja 300 in certain international markets.

In terms of pricing, one can safely expect the BS6 Kawasaki Ninja 300 to get a premium of INR 10,000-INR 15,000 over the BS4-compliant variant which was available in the market at an ex-showroom price tag of INR 2.98 lakhs.

The BS4 model of Ninja 300 was powered by a 296cc, liquid-cooled, twin-cylinder engine that was capable of offering maximum power of 39HP and a peak torque of 27Nm. The engine was mated to a 6-speed transmission.

Though there has been no confirmation on the performance figures for the BS6-compliant variant of the motorcycle, one can certainly expect a minimal reduction in the power and torque values since the engine will now comply to stricter BS6 emission norms.

As Ninja 300 is equipped with an older engine, it is yet to be seen how the brand will tune it according to the new emission standards without compromising the performance.

Kawasaki Ninja H2R is a dream machine of every true motorcycle enthusiast of India. The powerful motorcycle has numerous exclusive features and above all, a technology that puts 1.5 times the power into a similar package when compared to regular sporty options available in the country. The output values can leave any potential product, even a track-focused race car, in confusion to accept the challenge. Here are 15 important points that one should know about the motorcycle.

Kawasaki Ninja H2R

15 Must-Know Facts

1) World’s Fastest Production Bike – Ninja H2R touched the 400 kph top speed when World Supersport champion Kenan Sofuoglu took it for a ride on the Osman Gazi bridge near Istanbul. The feat was achieved in just 26 seconds on the closed bridge. The rider normally experiences 300kph of speeds on average during the Supersport races and this was a new experience for him too. The record was made during low wind conditions.

2) Self-Healing Paint – The original silver mirror paint finish helps the motorcycle stay young among other supersport machines of the world. The highly durable paint automatically heals the scratches as hard and soft segments of the paintwork together to create a smooth layer all the time. The paint only heals scratches from the soft sources.

3) Bank Angle Display – Kawasaki Ninja H2R comes with a bank angle display that records the maximum angle achieved and shows the same whenever required. The inertial measurement unit on the motorcycle is very effective and helps the H2R bring such impressive features.

4) Not Road Legal – The motorcycle is only for track use or in special cases, roads that have been legally closed for an event. The lack of mandatory parts like the headlight, taillight, and mirrors make H2R a limited-use product. In other words, you won’t get a number plate for your motorcycle.

5) Supercharged Engine – Kawasaki brings the 998cc, supercharged engine into the motorcycling world, producing 310HP in normal and 326HP in the RAM air-assist mode. The power is achieved @ 14,000 rpm while 165Nm of peak torque is available @12,500 rpm. Ninja H2R loves being revved and taking the range into 5-digit number brings exclusive performance.

6) Carbon Fiber Wings – Ninja H2R comes with carbon-fibre wings for improved downforce and those are placed at the same location as the rearview mirrors on regular bikes. The setup is lightweight and very effective when considering speeds of over 300kph.

7) Bridgestone Battlax V01 Tires – Kawasaki offers the most impressive rubber combination on the H2R, that too with a unique way of listing the size. The race-spec tires can’t be changed at will as every electronic feature is configured according to their dimensions and capability.

8) Single-sided Swingarm – The premium single-sided swingarm saves some weight and looks very impressive when seen from any of the sides. As the disc brake and swingarm stays on the left side of the rider, the right looks very sporty with just the visible alloy design and titanium exhaust system of the H2R.

9) Brembo Brakes – The 330mm, dual Brembo semi-floating brakes with 5.5mm of thickness help keeping the unsprung weight low and takes the stopping power to a new level. The rear comes with 250mm rear disc brake with 2-piston unit while the front features M50 4-piston setup.

10) Ohlins Suspension – Ninja H2R comes with Ohlins TTX36 gas-charged shock with 135mm of travel. Not just that, the precise steering damper is also made in collaboration with Ohlins. The front suspension is a 43mm USD unit with 120mm of travel.

11) Informative Console – Kawasaki Ninja H2R comes with an informative console with an analogue tachometer and TFT display for rest of the values. The screen features a gear indicator, speedometer and trip meter with the highest amount of readability.

12) Availability & Price in India – Ninja H2R is available in India for INR 75.80 lakh and attracts just 1% TCS over the same for the total value. The charges related to RTO documentation are not applicable on the H2R. The total one time cost adds up to INR 76.56 lakh for the motorcycle.

13) India vs US Price – The huge INR 75.80 lakh price tag is due to the huge amount of taxes applicable to the import. On the other hand, the Ninja H2R costs just $55,000 (INR 41.60 lakh approx) in the US market. The price is almost double in India and thus, the number of units sold is directly affected by the difference.

14) Service Interval – The Ninja H2R requires regular checkups at every 15 hours of operation. The console calculates the time automatically and not just that, only the number of minutes above 8000 rpm is calculated by the system.

15) No Warranty – Even after spending INR 76.56 lakh on the motorcycle, the buyer is offered no warranty on any of the components by Kawasaki. Even the engine and basic parts are out of warranty on the H2R. Every service falls under the paid segment for the motorcycle.

The prototype of the first-ever electric motorcycle from Kawasaki has been officially teased in a series of videos on YouTube while certain details like the name as well as the gearbox offered to the electric machine have been revealed online. As per the official videos, the upcoming electric motorcycle will be christened as Kawasaki Endeavor while the brand will be offering the bike with a 4-speed manual transmission.

The brand showcased its EV concept back at the EICMA 2019 while the 4-speed gearbox option was also revealed at that time and the same has been carried into the production. Commenting on the availability of a 4-speed manual unit, the Kawasaki officials stated: “manual transmission not only allows a greater speed range, but it also allows the rider to have greater input when operating the bike.”

Coming to the other details, the brand has decided to keep the things in the dark for now though an online source confirms that the lithium-ion battery pack that is expected to be used on the Kawasaki Endeavor would be capable of churning out 26HP of maximum power. In addition to this, some reports also confirm that the production variant of the electric bike will be very responsive as well as a lightweight product.

The images of the prototype further ensure that the brand has opted for a similar Ninja 300-inspired bodywork for the upcoming electric Kawasaki motorcycle though one can expect the production variant to feature a distinguished and unique design language. The motorcycle will be the first-ever electric machine from the Japanese prodigy which probably ensures that the brand will not base it on an outdated styling to lessen the customer’s enthusiasm.

Once launched by the brand, the upcoming Kawasaki Endeavor will lock horns with the electric offerings from Harley-Davidson as well as Zero Motorcycles though the Japanese brand is expected to make it more attainable for its huge fan base across the world.

For all the sports bike enthusiasts, a Kawasaki dealership in Japan by the name Pleasure MC based in Nisshin, Aichi Prefecture has recently modified a Kawasaki Z125 Pro monkey bike into a Kawasaki Ninja H2 fully-faired super sports machine. The end product of the customization is something worth appreciating and the dealership is calling it as the “h2”, with a lowercase ‘h’.

Coming to the baby Ninja h2, the dealership has specifically churned out the customization to offer the world a more affordable version of the Kawasaki Ninja H2, which is indeed one of the most powerful road-legal motorcycles across the countries with an equally “hole in the pocket” kind of price tag.

The customized Kawasaki Z125 Pro has been equipped with a one-of-a-kind body kit that has been designed with more than 40 fibreglass panels that are custom made with utmost perfection. The stock motorcycle has been equipped with almost identical body fairing on the super sports Ninja H2 in addition to the similar winglets design.

The customizers have further offered the stock machine with a similar rear profile as well as the rear seat cowl when compared to the inspiration. The customized unit further features a similar turbocharger seen on the Ninja H2 though this one has just been imparted as a dummy to mimic the perfect design. The customized Kawasaki Ninja Z125 “h2” has also been equipped with a similar dual-outlet exhaust unit to add to the authenticity further.

Apart from the cosmetic changes, the stock motorcycle has been kept mechanically unaltered. Powering the customized Kawasaki Ninja Z125 “h2” is the same 125cc single-cylinder engine that is good for 9 HP and 9.6 Nm. The dealership is charging a price tag of JPY 12,50,000 (INR 8.90 lakh) for the end product.

Kawasaki Extends Warranty Validity in India: Kawasaki has recently announced that they are extending the warranty on the motorcycles that will lapse between 1st March 2020 and 30th April 2020. The warranty for such vehicles has been extended until June 30, 2020. This decision by the brand has been taken due to the coronavirus pandemic as India is currently under lockdown till 3rd May 2020 which could be increased further considering the condition of different regions.

The brand has taken this initiative so that customers do not miss out on the benefits due to the situation arisen because of the coronavirus. Previously, the brand had announced that their production activities have been temporarily suspended from April 1, 2020, to April 14, 2020. Now as the lockdown has been extended by the Indian government, it means that the suspension by the company would be extended too. Kawasaki India has not yet commented regarding the same though.

According to one of the recent updates, the Indian government is considering reopening Industrial activities that include manufacturing as well. But this would happen in only those areas which are not COVID-19 hotspots. However, the automobile industries do not fall under the category of industries that will be allowed to operate during the lockdown.

Due to the coronavirus crisis, the brand has postponed several events in the Indian and International markets. The much-talked-about Ninja ZX-25R was scheduled to launch in Indonesia on April 4, 2020, which was cancelled due to the coronavirus outbreak.

For India, the brand had plans to launch the updated 2021 BS6-compliant versions of the Ninja 650 and the Z650. Now both the bikes are listed as ‘Coming Soon’ on the brand’s official website. The nationwide lockdown has resulted in other brands also extending their warranty deadlines. Brands such as KTM, Yamaha, TVS, Honda and Bajaj are among them.

The most anticipated Kawasaki Ninja ZX-25R was all set to be launched in Indonesia on April 4, 2020, but the ongoing coronavirus scare has made the officials delay the launch. However, the brand has officially revealed the Ninja ZX-25R Racer Model to keep the fans on their toes and to lessen the disappointment. The custom race track variant of the motorcycle has been specifically designed by Kawasaki Motor Japan while the brand is expected to launch the Race Series sometime in the next year.

The brand is further expected to launch the Ninja ZX-25R Racer Model in Japan by the end of this year while one can expect it to offer a thrilling performance on the race track. The reports further suggest that Kawasaki has churned out the Racer Model of the upcoming 249cc 4-cylinder Ninja ZX-25R to make the enthusiasts aware of its high circuit potential as well as the thrilling performance it is expected to offer.

Coming to the design language, the brand has offered the racer version of the motorcycle with various high-performance features in addition to offering carbon fibre body panels which offers it a premium outlook. The Ninja ZX-25R Racer Model will only be a track-specific, road-illegal variant though one can expect the brand to offer it with a list of additional addons.

The motorcycle variant has been devoid of all street-legal bits which include the likes of headlights, taillight, indicators as well as rear-view mirrors and the number plate. The carbon fibre detailing is carried on to the body panels while the Dunlop race-spec tyres have been offered to make it rather agile.

Some of the key premium components of the Ninja ZX-25R Racer Model include A-TECH full cowling, seat cowling and tank pad, a Beet NASSERT-R Evolution Type II exhaust system and Dunlop Sportmax Alpha-13SP tyres. The front and rear suspension units have been sourced from Showa while the chain is RK BL520R-XW.

The brand has not yet revealed the performance specs of the Kawasaki Ninja ZX-25R Racer Model though one can expect it to offer a high power output specific for the race track.

The 2020 Kawasaki W175 Cafe has been recently introduced by the brand in the Indonesian markets. The updated motorcycle is available to the customers at a similar price tag as that of its last-gen variant which stands at IDR 33,800,000 (INR 1.56 lakh). The brand has finally taken the covers off the 2020 variant of the W175 Cafe while the customers are also eagerly waiting for the launch of Ninja ZX-25R which is next on the launch list.

Coming to the MY2020 updates, the brand has offered the cafe racer from its “W” series with three new colour schemes namely Black, Orange and Silver which replaces the colour palette of the 2019 variant. Apart from the addition of new colours, the motorcycle remains identical to its last avatar.

The retro-classic design of the 2020 Kawasaki W175 cafe is accentuated by a single-piece handlebar with a short visor at the front. The brand has equipped the motorcycle with front fork gaiters and upright rearview mirrors. In addition to this, the cafe racer features a blacked-out engine as well as the exhaust system. The motorcycle further features a cafe racer-inspired single-seat saddle while the rear profile has been offered a sporty outlook.

The 2020 Kawasaki W175 Cafe is powered by the same 177cc single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine that is capable of offering maximum power of 13HP @ 7,500 rpm and a peak torque of 13.2Nm @ 6,000 rpm. The engine remains mated to a 5-speed transmission. The motorcycle still lacks a fuel injection system while the kerb weight and the fuel tank capacity stands at 126 kg and 13.5 litres respectively.

The brand was expected to launch the Kawasaki Ninja ZX-25R on April 4, 2020, though the recent coronavirus pandemic situation has delayed the launch indefinitely. More details on the Ninja ZX-25R motorcycle are expected to be revealed shortly by the brand.

The Kawasaki Ninja ZX-25R was to be launched in the Indonesian markets first followed by other countries. The brand has been capable of successfully making it one of the most anticipated motorcycles by revealing a host of specifications of the sports machine over its social media platforms from the past few months.

To jog your memory, the upcoming Kawasaki Ninja ZX-25R is a 250cc motorcycle that is capable of redlining at 17,000 rpm, a first for a sports bike in this segment. Equipped with a 249cc in-line 4-cylinder engine, the motorcycle is expected to churn out a maximum power of 55-60HP.

The brand is expected to launch the Kawasaki Ninja ZX-25R in the Indonesian markets at a price tag of around IDR 64 million (INR 3.32 lakh) though the local assembly might further reduce it in the future. Once launched in the market, the Ninja ZX-25R will compete against the likes of 2020 Honda CBR250RR, the upcoming motorcycle from the Japanese prodigy.

The 2020 Kawasaki Ninja 125 has been officially unveiled in the United Kingdom. The brand has not yet revealed the pricing details for the MY2020 variant, though one can expect it to get a slight increase in comparison to the MY2019 version which is priced at £3799 (INR 3.41 lakhs, approx.).

In terms of looks, there are no major changes and the 2020 model of the Ninja 125 continues to feature a single front headlight that is completely inspired by the quarter-litre Kawasaki SL range. Even the exhaust design is similar to the muffler seen on Ninja 250 SL. Apart from that, the design lines and sticker pattern is highly inspired by the bigger Ninja models.

The MY2020 Ninja 125 will be available in three colour schemes – Lime Green/Ebony (KRT Edition), Metallic Flat Stardust White/Metallic Flat Spark Black, and Metallic Spark Black/Metallic Flat Spark Black. The 11-litre fuel tank is good enough to provide a respectable range for a bike with a 125cc single-cylinder engine. Kawasaki Ninja 125 measures 1935mm in length, 685mm in width and 1075mm in height. The wheelbase measures 1330mm while the ground clearance stands at 170mm.

The 125cc engine is liquid-cooled and fuel-injected, producing a maximum power of 15HP @ 10,000 rpm and a peak torque of 11.7 Nm @ 7,700 rpm. The engine is mated to a 6-speed gearbox. The 2020 Kawasaki Ninja 125 is equipped with conventional front telescopic suspension measuring 37mm and the sportbike also features a clip-on handlebar for improved control over closed circuits or track-specific events.

As of now, Kawasaki has no plans to launch the Ninja 125 in India, though the brand may consider it for our market in the future. As RC 125 has worked wonders for KTM, similarly, Kawasaki may also start manufacturing the Ninja 125 in India and launch it with a price tag of around INR 1.50-1.60 lakh (ex-showroom), plus they can also export the same to the nearby countries.
