2018 Kawasaki Ninja 1000 sports-tourer receives redesigned decals.
2018 Kawasaki Ninja 1000: The new version is fundamentally the same as previously and receives no significant changes besides redesigned images.
The Kawasaki Ninja 1000 retains the distinction of their initial high displacement motorcycle from the Western manufacturer’s stable to be constructed in India. The Ninja 1000 will last to be attracted to India in semi-knocked down kits (SKD) and the bicycle is going to be constructed in its plant at Chakan. Kawasaki also has plans to build the Ninja ZX-10R from India.
Powering the Ninja 1000 is a 1,043cc in-line lookup engine creating 142hp in 10,000rpm and peak torque of 111Nm, which arrives at 7,300rpm. The engine is mated to some six-speed gearbox and features help and slipper clutch.
The bike maker’s move to local assembly will help bring the ZX-10R’s price down substantially. As a result, the superbike is likely to be priced at under Rs 14 lakh. This will make this Kawasaki the most affordable litre-class superbike on sale today – a claim currently held by the surprisingly well-priced Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade. The Honda is a CBU and the recent reduction in CBU duties resulted in the bike’s price being set at Rs 14.78 lakh for the base model and Rs 18.68 lakh for the higher-spec CBR1000RR SP.
Bookings for the new Ninja 1000 have started across all Kawasaki dealerships in India and it is available in 2 colour options – black and green. The Kawasaki sports-tourer competes against the likes of this Suzuki GSX-S1000F, Ducati SuperSport along with the BMW R 1200 RS, all which are priced considerably higher. Hopefully, Kawasaki is going to have the ability to meet customer need for your Ninja 1000 more efficiently this time around.
