The Kawasaki Ninja 650 mid-weight sportsbike has just become more affordable than before. Kawasaki India has announced a price slash of INR 40,000 for the motorcycle. The new price is INR 4.97 lakhs (ex-showroom, Delhi).

Kawasaki says that the price slash is a part of its 120th-year anniversary celebrations across the globe. However, the fact that this discount is available only for the 2015 models indicate that it is a stock clearance offer.

The new pricing is applicable only for the 2015 model.

Anyway, reduction of INR 40,000 is pretty attractive and is expected to make the Ninja 650 accessible to a wider group of audience. The new price is effective from August 1.

The Ninja 650 which is being assembled locally is powered by a 649 cc twin-cylinder liquid-cooled engine which is mated to a 6-speed transmission. The fully faired sportsbikeĀ has 72 PS and 63.7 Nm of torque on tap.

    Now this is some news, 5 lakh ex showroom and near 6 lakh on road for a model that’s same for the past gazillion years. Why doesn’t Kawasaki simply launch Vulcan at this price and watch the market beg for mercy. Someone needs to enroll Kawa marketing guys into MBA in India where cost is the king and rest secondary.

      Spot on. Vulcan & Vulcan S will make perfect sense for India..I have been reading how riders have been consistently rating the Vulcan over HD Street in US & Europe.
      Nevertheless, this 40k drop will help Kawi clear almost all of the old stock. Lets hope this stock clearance paves way for the Vulcan here in India.
