Kawasaki ER-6n, the naked version of Kawasaki’s successful sports tourer motorcycle, is being offered at hefty discounts at company dealerships across the country. Kawaski’s Mumbai dealership Anzen Kawasaki is offering a discount of INR 93,000 on the ER-6n which otherwise carries a price tag of INR 4.78 lakhs.
However, this pricing is only applicable to buyers in Thane, Panvel and Navi Mumbai regions. Kawasaki dealers in Bengaluru and Delhi have also announced heavy discounts on the ER-6n though the percentage of discounts varies from dealer to dealer.
The sole reason for dealers to offer such hefty discounts on Kawasaki ER-6n is to allow them to clear out stocks of bikes compliant with BS III emission norms ahead April 1, 2017 when implementation of BS IV comes into effect. Kawasaki is not the only manufacturer who is doing this. Honda too is selling their CBR650F for a hefty discount of INR 1 lakh for the same reason.
