Kawasaki has announced a price hike for select models in the Indian market. With this, the pricing of three motorcycles in the Z range has now changed. Thus customers planning to buy Z H2, Z H2 SE, and Z900 will have to pay more. Post the price hike, the Z H2 and the Z H2 SE are expensive by INR 23,000 and INR 27,000, respectively. The Z900, in comparison, is now dearer by INR 9,000, much lesser than the two mentioned above. We understand Kawasaki has brought in this step to make up for the rising cost of commodities. Not just Kawasaki, a host of other car & bike manufacturers have recently announced similar price hikes.
Updated Price List
With the new prices in effect, the Z H2 will now retail at an ex-showroom price of INR 22.79 lakh. Meanwhile, the Z H2 SE now gets a price tag of INR 26.95 lakh (ex-showroom). The Z900, after the price revision, is available at INR 8.93 lakh (ex-showroom). Noteworthy to mention that this price revision does not bring any cosmetic or mechanical changes. Thus Kawasaki’s roadster range of motorcycles remains exactly the same.
Colour Options Remain The Same
The Z900 continues to sell in two colours, Candy Lime Green Type 3 and Metallic Spark Black. Meanwhile, the Z H2 and the Z H2 SE are available in Metallic Diablo Black with Golden Blazed Green dual-tone paint.
The Z H2 range retains the 998cc, inline-four, liquid-cooled engine with a Supercharger. The performance output reads 197.2 BHP at 11,000rpm and 137 Nm of peak torque at 8,500rpm. Meanwhile, the Z900 uses a 948cc, inline-four, liquid-cooled motor that makes 123.6 BHP at 9,500rpm and 98.6Nm at 7,700prm.
Other Options In The Segment
Customers looking for alternatives to the Z H2 range can check out the likes of the Ducati Streetfighter V4 and BMW S1000R. Meanwhile, for the Z900, one can have a look at the Triumph Street Triple and the Ducati Monster.
