Kawasaki India has launched the Ninja 650 KRT edition at a sticker price of Rs. 5.49 Lakhs (Ex. Showroom) in the country. It would be available at Kawasaki dealerships from mid-November onwards. Kawasaki Ninja 650 KRT edition would be offered in Lime Green colour. KRT stands for Kawasaki Racing Team which comes with inspired colour and graphics package on selected Kawasaki street models. The special edition superbike gets an upright riding position, low seat height and manageable power delivery.
Speaking on the new addition, Mr. Yutaka Yamashita, Managing Director of India Kawasaki Motors said “The Ninja 650 KRT edition has done remarkably well in the USA, Europe and in other countries recently. We have got a good pool of Ninja 650 customers here in India as well. Those who were planning to buy Ninja 650, now have got another option with this new edition.” Ever since it was launched in India, Kawasaki Ninja 650 has fetched a good response from the buyers. The KRT Edition is around Rs. 16,000 more expensive than the standard version. It is similar to the regular model as far as mechanics are concerned, save for the new paint shade and additional graphics.
The Ninja 650 KRT is powered by the same 649 cc parallel-twin engine which develops top power of 67.2bhp and peak torque of 65.7Nm. The engine is linked to a six-speed gearbox which comes with a slipper clutch. As for braking, it gets updated brake callipers from Nissin with the Bosch 9.1 ABS as standard. The bike is BS IV compliant. It would take on the likes of Honda CBR 650F, Suzuki SFV650, Benelli TNT 600 GT and Yamaha FZ-07.
