    BI reports a 40% localization for the Z250: Invasion of the Green Goblins: Kawasaki Z250, ER-6n | Bike India

    After 40% local part sourcing they have priced it at 3.0 ex-showroom, quite a retarded thing to do.
    Also since this bike is essentially a N250 without fairings, it is going to have no low end that's expected in a naked.

    Disappointed with the pricing. Clearly a market strategy by Bajaj to save the brand KTM.

    doubt being bajaj the culprit here for the reason of both kind of consumer groups available.

    even if both are priced exact same there will be takers of Duke for the power and takers of kwacker for the finesse.
    i am one of the power user group and cheaper spare parts. atleast i can ride the motorcycle my heart out.

    It is a shame that Kawasaki didn't dare to be little adventurous and price this bike at 2.5-2.7L to keep the OTR price to below 3L which is a psychological figure for most aspiring bikers.
    They are going the full premium way and it appears are intentionally keeping the price much above KTM to distinguish themselves out. No doubt the Z250 is an excellent naked with a lovely twin engine but for us the announced pricing will override this fact, except for die hard kawa fans.

    for a die hard kawa fan i bet the n300 would be starting step... z250 will be lost somewhere for sure.. who will pick up a 250 naked for 3.3 on road.. with 31ps...
    thats some super premium for a naked bike...

    Before comparing the prices with the D390, lets not forget this is an actual twin and much better build quality is what I am expecting !
    And why the hell is there no ABS for the 6N ? !!! !

    I guess Kawasaki wanted to have a naked sibling for the masterpiece called Ninja 300 with a slightly lower price & specs for the naked bike fans in India. Though it is having twin cylinder & as per engine refinement it should be miles ahead of RC390/Duke390, it will not have much buyer like the KTMs because of it's price, but then again in spite of the higher premium, there are always some people who choose N300 over D390. But in case of a naked bike the scenario might be a bit different as larger share of people in India likes the faired bikes more. So number of sales might be lower here for this one.
    P.S. I would have loved to see the Z1000 ish headlamp design on this.

    Couple of years back, this would have been an excellent price but... Not anymore!

    As someone rightly said, 'the game has changed'!

    I for one will go for a N300 over the RC390.. many factors attached to my decision.

    No, I am not a Kawasaki Fan boy.. I am a fan of Indian Manufacturers.. But given a choice to select only from KTM or Kawasaki, it would be the N300.. the quality of the bike is miles ahead of RC.. the looks are way superior.. the twin cylinder will always be my choice over the single cylinder and its capabilities to do touring and at times tracks..

    Ninja is a class of its own.. not that RC isn't but it is that single cylinder that will stop me from going for it..

    This is not to offend anyone. All this is purely my opinion..
