The warranty on Kawasaki motorcycles, which would have been out of warranty between March 1- April 30, 2020, has now been extended till June 30, 2020.
Kawasaki India has joined the list of automakers that have extended warranty on its products due to the ongoing lockdown because of the Coronavirus outbreak. The Japanese motorcycle maker has announced that the company will be extending the warranty for the customers whose Kawasaki motorbikes would be out of warranty between March 1- April 30, 2020. The warranty of these bikes has now been extended till June 30, 2020.
Kawasaki India assembles motorcycles in the country for sale in the domestic market, but its plant has been temporarily shut since April 1, 2020. The motorcycle maker was supposed to resume production from April 14, 2020. However, given the fact that the lockdown has now been extended until May 3, 2020, Kawasaki won’t be able to resume production of its motorcycles in India till the lockdown is over.
Due to the lockdown, Kawasaki India was also forced to delay the launch of its new range of BS-VI compliant motorcycles, which were supposed to go on sale in the country from April 2020. The new bikes in question are the updated versions of the Ninja 650, Z650 and Z900. Kawasaki had already announced the arrival of these three bikes in BS6 avatar a couple of months ago, but the final price wasn’t disclosed. However, the company did hint a price hike of around Rs 50,000 to Rs 60,000 on the three new models. Now with the lockdown in place for the next-three weeks, Kawasaki is expected to reveal the prices of the new models closer to the time when its sales operations will resume in the country.
