Kawasaki is keen to tighten its grip in the Indian premium bike market. The Japanese premium bike manufacturer is taking new strategy to achieve that target. The brand will locally assemble the ZX10R in India, just like the Ninja 1000 which is imported in India as an SKD (Semi Knocked Down) kit and assembled locally. Thanks to the local assembling, the Kawasaki ZX10R is expected to be cheaper significantly.

The premium high-performance bike could be priced below Rs. 14 lakh after the local assembling begins. It is currently priced at Rs. 18.8 lakh (ex-showroom, Pan India). This move will make the Kawasaki ZX10R the most affordable litre class model in the country market. In that case, it will become cheaper than Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade, which is the present cheapest model in the litre class category.

The Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade has seen a recent price revision due to the reduction in custom duty for the CBU models. The Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade now comes priced between Rs. 14.78 lakh and Rs. 18.68 lakh. Speaking about the Kawasaki ZX10R, it will be locally assembled at the brand’s new plant in Chakan. Launch time of the model is yet to be announced by the Japanese brand, but we hope it will arrive sometime in June.

Kawasaki has been emphasizing on localised production of its bikes meant for the Indian market in order to capture more market share here with competitive pricing. The decision of local assembling of the zX10R comes as part of that strategy.
