Kawasaki’s recent developments highlight the Japanese motorcycle maker’s aggressive moves to build the brand and expand its portfolio for this emerging market. The company had launched two superbikes – the four-cylinder, 998cc Ninja ZX-10R and the four-cylinder, 1441cc ZX-14R – in September last year, followed by the launch of two other high-performance bikes, namely the Z1000 and the Ninja 1000, both using the four-cylinder, 1043cc engines in December 2013.
The bike maker in India now has a portfolio of six bikes, two of which (Ninja 300 and 650) are assembled locally and are also retailed from Bajaj Auto’s probiking showrooms. Company officials had earlier clarified that a premium bike model in India should justify sales of around 150-200 units per annum to be considered for local assembly or CKD-operations.
