Kawasaki low-spec motorcycle spy shots: 150cc or 250cc
Japanese bike manufacturers, Kawasaki are testing a new motorcycle. This is rumored to be a 150cc variant, which will take on the likes of Yamaha R15, or a 250 cc variant, to compete with Honda CBR250R, and the yet to be launched Yamaha R25.
Concentrating more on low capacity bikes, as this is where the demand is exponentially increasing, Kawasakiâ€™s upcoming bike was recently spied on the streets of Malaysia. This could either be a 150 cc variant, which could rival Yamaha R15 and Honda CBR150R. It could be powered by a single cylinder engine displacing a total of 150cc. Not much technical specifications have been revealed, but the model could be launched as both naked and fully faired bikes.
It can also be a 250 cc variant, which will take on the likes of Honda CBR250R and Yamaha R25. In any case, both these variants will be launched with disc brakes, front and rear, besides a fully digital instrument speedo console. Sporty in looks and efficient in performance, the new bike from Kawasaki will appeal to biking aficionados due to segment leading power figures and the latest in technology.
India Kawasaki Motors have expanded their product portfolio by launching Z1000 and Ninja 1000 at INR 12.50 lakhs in December 2013. These models combined with ZX-10R and ZX-14R launched in November 2013 have received immediate response which further strengthens the companyâ€™s presence in India. The bike company is also planning two more bikes â€“ Versys 1000 and ER-6n which will also be launched in India in 2014 for biking enthusiasts in the country. (images via)
