Kawasaki India hikes prices of some of its models

By Aditya Jadhav | on March 26, 2021

Kawasaki launched two models this month and thankfully, the new motorcycles haven't seen a price hike, however, other motorcycles have seen a price hike ranging from Rs 10,000 up to Rs 25,000

Kawasaki India has confirmed that the company shall begin its next financial year with a price revision. The new, increased prices on a few Kawasaki models will be effective from April 1, 2021. That said, some of the Kawasaki models will retain their existing prices.

Following is a list of Kawasaki motorcycles that have gone through a price hike.

 

Model

New price (ex-showroom)

Increase

Kawasaki Vulcan S

Rs 6.04 lakh

Rs 10,000

Kawasaki Z650

Rs 6.18 lakh

Rs 14,000

Kawasaki Ninja 650

Rs 6.54 lakh

Rs 15,000

Kawasaki Versys 650

Rs 7.08 lakh

Rs 14,000

Kawasaki W800

Rs 7.19 lakh

Rs 10,000

Kawasaki Z900

Rs 8.34 lakh

Rs 15,000

Kawasaki Ninja 1000 SX

Rs 11.29 lakh

Rs 25,000

Kawasaki Versys 1000

Rs 11.44 lakh

Rs 25,000

The models that have been excluded from the price hike are the 2021 Kawasaki Ninja 300 entry-level sportbike, the new Kawasaki ZX-10R - litre-class supersport, Kawasaki ZH2, Z H2 SE, and Kawasaki KLX110, and Kawasaki KLX140G dirt motorcycles.

The recently launched Honda CB500X comes at an ex-showroom cost of Rs 6.87 which was close proximity to the Kawasaki Versys 650. With this price hike, the Kawasaki Versys 650 is inching away from the price bracket weakening its value for money ratio. That said, the launch of the Triumph Trident 660 is scheduled for April 6, 2021, and maybe then we can find out which one has a greater value for money proposition when compared to the Kawasaki Z650.
