    Z250 is priced rs333000 on road gurgaon haryana. even today we do not know from where this bike is imported to india. if kawasaki reduces price by rs30000/-,this will reduce price almost by rs60000/- as import duty will be lesser on reduced price. if it is coming from japan, the quality will be better.

    A few days back I was at the Gurgaon showroom and the dealership told me Z250 was 3.49 OTR while the N300 was 3.99 OTR in Haryana.
    Z250 is priced too close to N300.

    Also it comes from Thailand due to the FTA. Japan-made will push up the price even further.

    Few weeks ago I inquired about the z250, it was 3.3L on road here in Delhi. I inquired at the KTM motinagar showroom.
    Just because you haven't seen it doesnt mean its impossible...expect the unexpected.

    pl. advise about sitting position of z250. any member who has taken test ride may advise about sitting position of this bike. Is it like race track like, sport tourer, or sport commuter .

    It is similar to Ninja 300. Slightly up, but not at all close to Unicorn/Bullet style seating. You still have to lean out a bit. I think if you add handle risers and raise the handle bar of Ninja 300 by 1 inch, you will be at equal or better position.

    Here is something I noticed while randomly searching through import databases: there are no entries at all for CBU or CKD imports of the Z250, except for one unit that was imported into India for homologation back in Feb 2014. Further digging around suggests that:

    1) The Z250s that are sold in India are not CKDs (where ALL components of the motorcycle are imported and assembled locally).
    2) The Z250s are thus, SKDs (where SOME components of the motorcycle are imported, some are locally sourced and then assembled).
    3) About 60% of the parts from Thailand are imported while 40% are sourced locally (from the 40% localization news by BI on page 2 of this thread)
    4) These imported parts (HS Code 8714 that designates parts for motorcycles etc.) attract around 26% duty. I don\'t know if the duty is lesser due to the FTA with Thailand as I can\'t find any data on it.

    Given the above, it is my opinion that a Z250 should cost around 2L to assemble in India. So a markup of 1 lakh on a motorcycle that costs 2 lakh for 3L ex-showroom pricing.
    Talk about ripoffs of the highest order.

    The seating position is not aggressive and is perfect for long distance plus track as you fit tightly around the huge tank!

    Z250 is priced very very close to N300. Makes really absurd to go for Z250 in such case. NO ABS, nothing. Atleast, N300 offers slipper clutch, more power. I just can't understand why the HELL Kawasaki not going solo and riding pillion on Bajaj. Bajaj is charging HUGE margin for that!!

    BTW, ER6N seating is just sweet, perfect for long hauls

    That's exactly the idea, it's a well known marketing strategy. Price it close to the model which you actually want to sell.
