    Default 2019 Kawasaki ZX-6R bookings open in India till 30th November!

    Our prayers have been answered! All those days of whining for a Supersport to make it to India… And the answer comes from Japan. Kawasaki India’s social media pages brought the good news that the bookings of the 2019 Kawasaki ZX-6R are open here in India. And what timing by Kawasaki as this motorcycle is the only one in the Supersport category that is available in India. The road seems clear for the 2019 Kawasaki ZX-6R to make an impact in the market.

    The Triumph Daytona 675 was discontinued in India quite some time ago and that was the only motorcycle in the segment. After the Daytona the field was wide open and Kawasaki decided to swing for the fences and it pretty much seems like a home run! But only if the pricing is right because the most prominent problem for Supersport motorcycles is that their price creeps uncomfortably close to superbikes. But if priced right, this might very well be hit! We expect the price to be around INR 11-12 lakhs (Ex-Showroom) and the deliveries will probably begin in February 2019.

    The 2019 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R seems like a visual refresh and whether it is for the better or the worse, we cannot say. The motorcycle appears ‘all new’ from the outside but this is more like a refresh and not an overhaul. The chassis and the engine remain the same. The motorcycle continues to be powered by the same 636cc inline-4 cylinder. Kawasaki also claim that the gearing has also been changed in order to bring more usable power in the lower rev-range. An up-shift only quickshifter has also been added to the bike. No official figures have been revealed as of yet, but Kawasaki claim that the new engine has “improved power and torque feeling”.

    The chassis as we stated remain the same and the wheels are suspended by Showa balance free front forks. Braking duties are being handled by Nissin brakes with ABS. Kawasaki offers an Öhlins steering damper as part of the aftermarket catalog. The bodywork is new, the dash is new, and there is a 12-volt utility plug available now. Riding modes and traction control are also available on the new motorcycle. For the European market, the bike gets Bridgestone Battlax S22 tyres.

    This has really gotten our hopes up and we just cannot wait to see the Yamaha R6 to come knocking on the doors of this segment and make it more of a fight for the 2019 Kawasaki ZX-6R.

    Below are some snips from the India Kawasaki Official website:

    Good news. Kawasaki is atleast bringing variety of products to India unlike Honda and Yamaha who are happy selling 100 -150 cc products. Honda sticking with that outdated CBR 250 R is just so absurd.
