At the end of every year, automakers in India announce price hikes for their vehicles. Kawasaki India has done the same, and the updated prices have been revealed. The new prices will come into effect on 1st January 2022. The most affordable Kawasaki bike in our market – Ninja 300 – will see a hike of Rs. 6,000.
Ninja 650 will become more expensive by Rs. 7,000, while the Z650 and retro-inspired Z650 RS have been spared from the hike. The Vulcan S cruiser will see an increment of Rs. 6,000 in its price. Kawasaki’s adventure models – Versys 650 and Versys 1000 – will receive a price hike of Rs. 22,500 and Rs. 17,000, respectively.
Kawasaki W800 will see a relatively massive increase of Rs. 25,000 on its price tag. As for the Z900, is set to become more expensive by Rs. 8,000. The price hike on the Ninja 1000 SX will be Rs. 11,000, while the same on Ninja ZX-10R will be Rs. 23,000.
The Z H2 and Z H2 SE won’t become more expensive with the rest of the range following this new year’s eve. Kawasaki’s dirt bike range – KX100, KX250, KX450, and KX450R – are also unaffected by the upcoming price hike. It should be noted that Kawasaki dirt bikes are not street-legal.
The Japanese two-wheeler manufacturer is planning to launch a new entry-level motorcycle in the Indian market – W175. It will be a retro-style motorcycle, along similar lines as W800. Kawasaki W175 has been spotted a few times on Indian roads, and it will likely arrive sometime in 2022.
