Now the Kawasaki motorcycle manufacturing company’s officials made an important announcement. At the Buddh International Circuit, they revealed that they would launch three new motorcycles in India within this year, and would start workings on their new showrooms too. We have information that the three new models to make way here are the Z250SL, the Vulcan S and the Ninja ZX-6R 636.
Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R 636
The new Ninja ZX-6R 636 design looks mostly similar to its older brother. This bike comes with a part digital instrument console that displays the tachometer in analogue format. It comes with fairing- mounted mirrors too and a stepped saddle.
The Ninja ZX-6R 636 comes with a new 636cc, four-stroke, liquid-cooled, in-line four cylinder motor that is fuel-injected and produces 129.2bhp at a steep 13,500rpm. The bike also produces 7.2kgm of torque at 11,500rpm. The Ninja ZX-6R 636 is also equipped with many safety features from Kawasaki including ABS braking, slipper clutch, traction control, two power modes and an economy indicator. Kawasaki will bring the Ninja ZX-6R to India via the CBU route in the fourth quarter of 215 and it will cost about Rs 12-13 lakh here. The Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R 636 will take on bikes such as the Triumph Daytona that dominate the niche segment of track ready, half-liter engine bikes in India.
Kawasaki announced the Z250 in India a few months back, but that was the parallel-twin cylinder engine version. Now they will introduce the new model of Z250SL, a naked motorcycle that has a narrower and slightly taller posture giving it an impressive yet aggressive look. It is equipped with a fully digital instrument console, a stepped saddle and a longish exhaust. It also weighs about 20kg less than the outgoing Z250.
This new Z250SL is powered by a 249cc, four-stroke, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled and fuel-injected motor that churns 27.6bhp at 9,700rpm. Torque output is also good at 2.3kgm at 8,200rpm. Its advanced power plant is equipped with a DOHC system and makes use of a four-valve per cylinder engine layout.
Kawasaki may launch this motorcycle mid 2015, brought in via the CKD route. The Kawasaki Z250SL will cost approximately Rs 2 lakh.
Kawasaki Vulcan S
Kawasaki’s Vulcan S is a cruiser which looks totally modern in its design, whose engine is based on the Ninja 650, which is already on sale here in India. The Vulcan S has a low-seat height to ensure comfort as Kawasaki even offers a customizable seating posture, digi-analogue instruments console and even has adjustable rider foot pegs. Its silencer is neatly placed under the engine but is visible clearly. The Kawasaki Vulcan S is powered by a 649cc, four-stroke, parallel twin, liquid-cooled and fuel-injected power plant. It produces 60.2bhp at 7,500rpm and 6.4kgm at 6,600rpm. The Vulcan S is designed with an Eco meter technology, indicating when efficiency is at its highest. It weighs 225kg without ABS and 228kg when equipped with the anti-lock braking feature. The Vulcan S is expected to be here by mid-2015 and will be brought here via the CKD route. Estimated price for the Vulcan S is Rs 6 lakh and will compete against other capable cruisers on sale here such as the Harley-Davidson Street 750.
