I have a ninja 250r aswell, for that I use regular unleaded but for z800,900,1000 or ninja 1000 95+ octane is a must.
    so, how do you actually survive when there are very few petrol pumps who offer 97 petrol? Do you use octane boosters? Ever been on any long trips? Also the compression ratio of Duke 390 is 12:1 but Ninja 1000 has lower compression ratio of 11:1. Why does it require a higher grade petrol then? Sorry, I am a newbie for this compression ratio thing. Please forgive if my questions seem silly to you.

    Default Kawasaki Z250 ownership cost including spare parts prices(list) and maintenance!

    Dear z250 owners share your views on ownership costs and spare parts price list and also where to get them?ASS or some websites? Throw some light on the topic for boys who want to begin with the twin cylinder creed!

    The cost of maintaining superbikes is greatly dependent on the Manufacturing Company.

    Eg: Street Triple cost 6-7K but a MV brutale cost 20-25K for Service even though they are bikes of the same segment.

    Also some bikes need service after 5000km & some after 10000km. So that automatically doubles up the service cost.

    Generally bikes made/assembled in India are cheaper to maintain. 100% important are more expensive to maintain.

    If your engine runs without knocking with regular petrol, why waste on higher octane. I have never put anything more than regular unleaded 87 in any of my bikes and cars. It is harmful to switch fueltypes as they burn at different temperatures. Better to fill with something that is available everywhere.

    If you learn oil change, filter change and safety check procedures from YouTube, your maintenance costs will be nothing.

    Ps: sorry, just realized I was replying to a really old post.

    Icon1 Re: Operational and Maintenance cost of a SBK in India

    Kind of old thread but as a rider who uses Ducati as my daily commuter and tourer on weekends, I pay about 15k-20k a month on fuel, and about 10k for service every year or 15000 kms. The fuel is obviously expensive but that's because I use the bike from things like buying groceries to going on inter state trips, the service is not.

    If you can buy a liter bike I dont think you will have problem with the after sales expenses unless you really save up for the purchase and bought it with loans.
