Kawasaki India has announced a low rate of interest and special benefits on select motorcycles. Under the offer, buyers can either opt for a 0% interest rate or get benefits of up to INR 47,000 in form of free official accessories, riding gear or merchandise. Moreover, as a dealership level offer by Anzen Kawasaki (Mumbai), customers who do not opt for either of the two options mentioned above can take a cash discount of the equivalent amount on the motorcycles.
The offer is valid the Ninja 400, Ninja 650, Z650, Versys 650, Vulcan 650 and the Ninja 1000. The amount of benefits available depends on the model. Find out the exact amount of benefits at the dealership. Buyers can contact the Mumbai dealership (email@example.com/+91-9699368888) for further details.
Although unconfirmed, the 0% interest rate and special benefits could be an exercise to clear the inventory before the BS-VI models start to roll into the showrooms. Regular followers would know that Triumph Motorcycle’s outlets were offering demo bikes and MY2017 and MY2018 iterations at heavy discounts. American cruiser brand Harley-Davidson’s Mumbai dealership too announced discounts on demo vehicles.
In other updates, India Kawasaki Motors extended the colour palette for the Ninja 1000 with the introduction of the new ‘Metallic Matte Fusion Silver’ paint. The new colour, however, is limited to just 60 units. Despite being limited in numbers, the Metallic Matte Fusion Silver Ninja 1000 is available at the same prices as the regular colour options, and the litre-class sport model is available at INR 10,29,000 (ex-showroom, PAN India). Other colour options include "Candy lime green" and "Metallic spark black".
The Kawasaki Z250 was recently discontinued in India. The Kawasaki Z650 is the new entry-level model in the Kawasaki Z series. Although unconfirmed, Kawasaki may introduce the Z300 or the Z400 in India to fill the void in the entry-level segment. Given the positive response received by the heavily localised Ninja 300, Kawasaki may consider bringing the Z300 for the Indian market. If launched, the localised Z300 will most likely arrive at a significantly lower price tag than the Z250.
