As per a report from BikeAdvice, the Kawasaki Versys-X 300 has registered a sale of only two units in four months. Kawasaki launched the bike in the country in November, last year at a price of INR 4.6 lakhs, ex-showroom, Mumbai and Delhi.

Kawasaki assembles the bike at the brand’s Chakan plant in Pune and hence is a CKD offering. Despite that, its prohibitively high price tag; and the presence of more value-for-money alternatives within the brand as well as outside the brand can be attributed to its low sales figure. The sales data is from the SIAM database.

In comparison, the bike is only INR 39,000 cheaper than the Kawasaki Z650, which costs INR 4,99,000, ex-showroom. Moreover, the Versys-X 300’s elder brother, the Versys 650 reportedly tallied 21 units in March 2018, showing a healthier performance.
