India Kawasaki Motors commenced deliveries of the all-new 2019 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R Supersport from the first week of this month.
India Kawasaki Motors announced the pre-bookings of the Ninja ZX-6R in November 2018 and launched it on 15 January 2019. The Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R has been introduced at an introductory price of INR 10.49 lakh (ex-showroom India). The motorcycle features an updated design and electronics suite.
The Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R is brought to the country via the CKD route and is locally assembled at the company’s facility in Chakan, Pune. The motorcycle has been aggressively priced in the ‘Supersport’ category and comes equipped with LED headlights as standard. The Ninja ZX-6R features the company’s latest Sugomi design philosophy, which can be seen on bikes like the Ninja H2, ZX-10R, Ninja 400 and others.
Speaking on occasion, Mr Naoki Matsumoto - Managing Director, India Kawasaki Motors Pvt. Ltd. said:
“The Ninja ZX-6R created a great stir when its entry in the Indian market was announced. Because the Ninja ZX-6R is an ambitious project for us, starting deliveries of the Ninja ZX-6R is indeed an exciting moment. We hope that our customers relish riding Ninja ZX-6R on streets as well as on race tracks.”
