Kawasaki India has announced a price hike across its product lineup in the Indian market. The bike manufacturer will increase prices of all its models with varying percentage, starting from the 1st April 2019.
Kawasaki's middleweight motorcycle segment consisting of the Ninja 400, Ninja 650, Versys 650, Vulcan S and the Z650 will also receive a price hike of up to 7 per cent. This translates to an increase in prices ranging around Rs 38,000.
Kawasaki's larger motorcycle offerings such as the Ninja 1000, Versys 1000 and the ZX-10R, will face a price hike of 5 per cent. This translates to increase in ex-showroom prices by around Rs 60,000.
The Kawasaki Ninja 300 remains the only motorcycle, for which a price hike hasn't been confirmed. The brand will update the revised price list of its motorcycles from the 1st April 2019. The increase in prices of the Kawasaki models is said to be mainly due to the rising cost of raw materials and other input costs as well.
Kawasaki recently launched the Versys 1000 in the Indian market. The 2019 Kawasaki Versys 1000 was first showcased at EICMA last year and is priced at Rs 10.69 lakh, ex-showroom India). The Kawasaki Versys 1000 is also one of the most-affordable litre-class adventure-tourer offering in the Indian market.
With the launch of the Versys 1000 in the Indian market, Kawasaki dealers in Mumbai started offering exciting exchange offers to Versys 650 owners. As part of the deal, owners of Versys 650 could exchange their motorcycles to the Versys 1000, while also receiving buyback offers up to 90 per cent. This translates to a total discount worth up to Rs 6 lakh.
Kawasaki is also said to be working on its first EV motorcycle. The brand's first set of patent images for their electric motorcycle was leaked online recently. The leaked patent images showcase the initial designs of the Kawasaki EV. The electric motorcycle, however, is still in its very early stages, with no confirmation regarding its entry into the Indian market.
Thoughts On The Kawasaki Price Hike
Kawasaki is one of the most popular motorcycle brand in the country. The company locally manufacture most of their products, allowing them to price it competitively in the market. The hike in prices is part of the rising input costs during manufacturing. The price hike will be implemented from April 2019, with the updated price list on the website from the mentioned date.
