Kawasaki India has commenced deliveries for the Ninja ZX-6R from this week onwards. The motorcycle is sold via the CKD route and is priced at Rs 10.49 lakh, ex-showroom, India. However, this is only the introductory pricing and the Japanese brand says it will go up considerably soon. Pre-bookings commenced way back in November 2018, and bookings are still open at all Kawasaki dealerships. Interestingly, the India-spec bike is a single seater. We believe most buyers would not want to go pillion on such a committed motorcycle but it remains to be seen how customers would react to it.

In the Indian market, the Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R doesn’t have any natural rivals, but in its price bracket, the Triumph Street Triple RS comes quite close to being a track-friendly motorcycle. Here’s Kawasaki’s statement:

Press Release:

Deliveries of the Ninja ZX-6R commenced

India Kawasaki Motors Pvt. Ltd. commenced deliveries of sublime road supersport Ninja ZX-6R from 1st week of February 2019. In November 2018, the Ninja ZX-6R debuted with pre-booking facility and the price was announced on 15th January 2019.

The 636cc inline four-cylinder DOHC engine has been optimized for the street and the track, offering an exhilarating experience in a wide range of riding situations. The Ninja ZX-6R features new gearing which makes more fun on the street and winding roads. Kawasaki Quick Shifter (KQS) is a standard equipment, complementing advanced rider support technology like 3-mode Kawasaki Traction Control (KTRC), Power Mode selection and Kawasaki Intelligent anti-lock Brake System (KIBS).

Besides, Bridgestone’s latest sport tyres BATTLAX HYPERSPORT S22 contribute to lighter handling, while offering superior grip in both dry and wet conditions, which translates to greater rider confidence and enjoyment.

Speaking on the epoch-making occasion, Mr. Naoki Matsumoto – Managing Director, India Kawasaki Motors Pvt. Ltd. said, “The Ninja ZX-6R created a great stir when its entry in Indian market was announced. Because the Ninja ZX-6R is an ambitious project for us, starting deliveries of the Ninja ZX- 6R is indeed an exciting moment.
