Kawasaki had introduced the K-Care package which was limited to the MY22 Ninja 300 and the MY21 ZX-10R. The company has now extended this optional package to the 650cc products as well after a very good response from consumers. The K-Care package can now be availed with MY22 Ninja 650, MY22 Z650, MY22 Vulcan S, MY22 Ninja 300 and MY21 ZX-10R only. The Versys series and the other products will not get the optional package.
K-Care is Kawasaki’s take on an Annual Maintenance Contract which enhances the ownership experience by providing complete peace of mind. The packages include an additional 2-year warranty besides the standard 2 years offered by the company giving the bikes a total warranty of 4 years or 50,000 km whichever comes earlier and four years of periodic maintenance which is transferable to the new owner if you decide to sell the bike within four years. Some of the key features of the K-Care package are listed below
- Specially designed Maintenance package menu
- Guarantees authentic fitments with Extension in warranty
- Assures job work by Kawasaki certified technicians
- Allows redemption at all authorised dealership facilities in the country
The AMC includes 8 periodic services (one every six months after the first service which is conducted after one month of purchase) within the four years of the K-Care package. The below table covers the details of the AMC.
