India Kawasaki Motors has made the Ninja 650 motorcycle more affordable in the country by introducing a Rs 40,000 price cut. The mid-weight sportsbike, which was priced at Rs. 5,37,420, ex-showroom Delhi, now costs Rs. 4,97,420.
Kawasaki says the deduction in price is part of the company's 120th year anniversary celebrations. However, the price cut is only applicable to the 2015 models, which indicates it is a stock clearance sale. The new price came into effect on Aug. 1.
The Ninja 650 is powered by 649cc parallel-twin liquid cooled engine that develops 71.11bhp at 8,500rpm and 64Nm of torque at 7,000rpm mated to six-speed transmission. The motorcycle based on twin-tube perimeter steel frame employs 41mm Telescopic front fork and mono offset suspension at rear, which is seven steps adjustable.
The Ninja 650 measures 2,110mm in length, 770mm in width and 1,180mm in height and has a wheelbase of 1,410mm. It has 130mm ground clearance, 211kg kerb weight and 16-litres of fuel tank capacity.
Apart from Ninja 650, Kawasaki India sells two other 650cc motorcycles -- ER-6n and Versys 650. The ER-6n is priced at Rs 4.78 lakh and the Versys 650 costs Rs 6.6 lakh, ex-showroom.
