Kawasaki, one of the biggest Japanese motorcycle manufacturers, has launched two new motorcycles today, the much awaited Z250 and the ER-6n.
The Z250 is priced at INR 2.99 lakh and the ER-6n is priced at INR 4.78 lakh (both prices ex-showroom Delhi)
Kawasaki is looking to take over the quarter litre motorcycle segment with the Z250, which is currently dominated by manufacturers like Honda with their CBR250 and KTM with the two Duke variants.
The Z250's styling is based on its older siblings, the Z1000 and the Z800. The motorcycle also shares a few styling elements like the rear tail section, meter console and wheels from the Ninja.
The motorcycle is powered by a 250cc, liquid-cooled, parallel twin-cylinder engine that produces 33 bhp at 11,000 rpm.
The Kawasaki Z250 will be sold through pro-biking dealerships.
The ER-6n on the other hand is a naked version of the very popular Ninja 650. Powering this motorcycle is a 649cc, twin-cylinder, four-stroke liquid-cooled, fuel injected engine that makes 71 bhp and a peak torque of 64Nm at 7000 rpm.
ABS is not offered on both the variants but Kawasaki could introduce it in the future.
