Kawasaki Ninja: The most affordable big bike


Kawasaki Ninja is a name that excites every bike enthusiasts. The Japanese motorcycle manufacturer is well renowned for producing one of the most powerful and crazy fast superbikes. But what everyone loves about the brand is that the way they manage to package their motorcycles with all the tech’s and updates while keeping the price at the minimum rate possible.

This strategy really paid off for the company for the last couple of years. However, seeing the popularity and the demand for the Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R made the company rethink its plans for the Indian market. This particular brand of motorcycle is one of the most sold and most popular bike in the country. This is due to the fact that the bike is assembled here in India and then sold in the outlets which help in cost-cutting and slashing the import duties.

The 2021 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R doesn’t need any formal introductions, as this is the most common superbike in the country, at least the previous generation of the bike was. While the new 10R is more focused on aesthetics whereas the performance of the 998cc liquid-cooled inline-four lost some of its power due to BS-VI emission laws. Now the engine manages to produce 203ps @ 13,200rpm peak power and 114.9 Nm @ 11,400rpm peak torque, though the spec-sheet tells about the drop of power now the bike is more aerodynamic. The bike comes equipped with a 43mm inverted fork which is preload adjustable while on the back twin-spar cast aluminium chassis horizontal black link, which is also preload adjustable.

The electronic package on the new ZX-10R is very similar to its previous generation, but the big change being the 4.3 inches coloured TFT display with Bluetooth connectivity while the quick-shifter and auto blipper are already present in addition to Cruise control and four ride modes Sport, Rain, Road and Rider come as standard.

Even though Zx-10RR had a launch control option too, but it was mainly focused on track use. Globally the bike is available in two colours Green and Black and both options are available in India. So now comes the bigger question, that is the price of the bike? Now the bike is priced at ₹14.99 lakh ex-showroom, which relevantly seems a reasonable price for a litre class bike and that offers a decent tech-package in a powerful machine.
