Thoughts About The Kawasaki Bike Prices Hiked For The Third Time This Year

The input costs for the manufacturing of vehicles have increased in India, which has forced brands to impart the additional cost to customers. Although Kawasaki is yet to make a statement on the price increase, we reckon the Japanese brand has also been affected by the increasing input costs. However, most of the bikes sold in India arrive through CKD, so there could be other reasons for the price hike by Kawasaki.
