Kawasaki Z250 India Launch Soon; Testing Commences?

Added in: Kawasaki

That the Japanese bike maker Kawasaki has become all the more serious for Indian market is quite an apparent fact. We already have supersports models like Kawasaki ZX10R, sports tourers like the Ninja 1000 and street nakeds like the Z1000 officially on sale in our country. Not just this, we also have the Kawasaki Ninja 300 officially on sale here. Back in February this year, we reported that Kawasaki India has been busy contemplating launching the Kawasaki Z250 in India. (CLICK HERE for our earlier report on Kawasaki Z250 India launch). Now, if a recent report is anything to go by, the Kawasaki Z250 India launch could happen sooner than anticipated as the bike maker has already started testing this tasty looking motorcycle on Indian roads. The source of this information goes on to say that a Kawasaki Z250 test mule has been spotted testing in Bangalore. However, there are no pics to support this claim.

The Z250 was first showcased at the Tokyo Motor Show last year. Powering this model is a twin pot motor that bestows the bike with segment leading performance figures. The bad part, however, is that much like the Ninja 300, the Z250 too would be steeply priced and hence, inaccessible to a lot many bike aficionados out there. The Z250 will come to us via CKD route and is expected to be priced around the INR 3 lakhas mark, with the Suzuki Inazuma 250 and the Hyosung GD250N becoming its direct rivals.

    Everything new will be expensive. So is the case of the Twin Cylinder bikes. Am certain in few years time they will be available at good price.
