Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R coming to India? Under ARAI homologation process

Written by Parichay Malvankar

Kawasaki has been super aggressive in the superbike segment lately. The brand has one of the most extensive product line-up, and also very competitively priced. Now, the Japanese brand might be ready to again redefine the Indian supersport motorcycle segment. Kawasaki is planning to introduced the Ninja ZX-6R here in India.

The Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R was recently spotted under homologation process at ARAI. Only bikes which a brand needs approval for a market debut are seen undergoing homologation process. However, there is no official news on whether this bike will be launched, and when. This bike could initially be brought in as a CBU, and eventually will take the CKD route for better pricing if demand exists.

When launched, the Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R will rival the Triumph Daytona 675 which will also be replaced with the new model, Daytona 765 in due course of time.

The Ninja ZX-6R is powered by a 636cc, 4-cylinder, liquid-cooled motor producing 114.25 HP of power and matched to a 6-speed gearbox of course. The problem with 600cc class motorcycles is that the pricing is very close to litre-class siblings. The Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R retails at INR 12.80 lakh ex-showroom. So the Ninja ZX-6R will need to stay below the 1 million rupee mark to make a case for itself.
