The new generation Kawasaki Ninja ZX10R gets atheistic as well as mechanical updates
Japanese sports bike maker Kawasaki has opened the bookings for 2019 Kawasaki Ninja ZX10R in India. That said, the bike will be available in limited numbers like the 2018 model. The company has not yet revealed the price or the technical specifications of the motorcycle. A booking amount of Rs 1.5 lakh has to be paid in any dealership of Kawasaki to book the bike.
The Booking window is from April 26th to 30th May 2019. It is expected that deliveries of ZX10R supersport will be done in the month of June 2019. And it’s important to note that the bike is available in limited numbers only. There is no word from the manufacturer about the numbers yet. However, the company stated that if the targeted numbers are reached the booking will be stopped.
The 2019 version of the bike gets a new technology which uses finger-follower valve actuation system instead of tappet styled actuators. The advantages of this system are that mass reduces by around 20% and the engine is able to sustain higher rpms with ease. This engine makes 3 horsepower more (now 203 bhp) than the outgoing version.
The 6-speed gearbox is assisted by bi-directional quickshifter which will come as standard fitment. 2019 Kawasaki Ninja ZX10R is available in a new color scheme with a combination of Lime Green, Ebony Black as well as metallic graphite.
2019 version of ZX10R will also be assembled here in India and thus will be priced competitively. But recently the company has hiked the price of every bike in their line-up so we can also expect the price of 2019 Kawasaki Ninja ZX10R to be around 14 lakh ex-showroom. Last year though Ninja ZX10R was priced at Rs 12.8 lakh ex-showroom.
Speaking about the rivals, the nearest liter-class superbike is Honda CBR1000RR which is priced at Rs 16.41 lakh and next one is BMW S1000RR which will set you back by Rs 18.05 lakh ex-showroom. Kawasaki Ninja ZX10R is the most affordable liter class bike available in the country.
