Kawasaki has just announced an upcoming price hike on select models in India. These models will see an increase of up to 7 percent on the ex-showroom, Delhi prices and will be effective from April 1, 2019.
The company has said that the reason for the hike is the increasing costs of raw materials and fluctuations in foreign exchange rates. While bikes like the Kawasaki Ninja 400, Ninja 650, Z650, Vulcan S and Versys 650 will witness an increase of 7 percent in their ex-showroom price tags, company’s other models, barring the Ninja 300, will see an increase of 5 percent. This includes popular models like the Ninja 1000, Versys 1000 and Ninja ZX-10R. As for the Ninja 300, an increase in its price has not been confirmed, yet.
In order to provide an estimate, a 7 percent increase on the Ninja 650 will take the price up from Rs 5.49 lakh to 5.87 lakh, which is an increase of around Rs 38,000. Meanwhile, an increase of 5 percent on the Versys 1000 will take the price up from Rs 10.69 lakh to Rs 11.22 lakh; a hike of around Rs 53,000.
