Kawasaki Versys 1000 and also set for India launch

may have two CKD and four CBU motorcycles in and planning to start sales of the within a month from but they are far from done. We that the company is further adding one CBU and one CKD product to the Indian If all goes well, you may be able to buy the … version of the Ninja the ER-6n by the middle of this

But even before that you actually be able to lay your on what promises to be India’s affordable adventure tourer, the 1000.

The Kawasaki Versys

The key to running a low margin high business is to manage costs the brand is such a premium that the high prices are a part of the buying proposition. And is why KTM and Kawasaki have always away from offering too colours options, for instance. colours adds more to the spare parts that be in stock at service centres raises the costs and cuts

Then comes the question of and certification. In India, as you know, under 800cc needs to go full homologation while above can go on sale with the of paperwork, requiring little than the homologation certification the country of origin.

The Kawasaki ER-6n

Kawasaki in intend to reap the benefits of The ER-6n is mechanically the same as the 650 but wears a … look means homologation should be a process since the engine, et al are already certified. This means that the price is to be below the Ninja 650 which sells for roughly Rs 5.6 lakh Mumbai. Our guess?

The ER-6n be yours for as little as Rs 5.2 lakh in when sales open, around June or July The thing to remember, of course, is the ER-6n, like the Ninja will be sold out of Bajaj dealers like the Ninja 300 and the 650 and not the single dealer Kawasaki

What is the ER-6n? As we’ve it is the same motorcycle mechanically as the 650. That means the twin-tube spar frame the same 72PS parallel engine. The differences are visual. The is a bit taller and the distinctively shaped and tiny flyscreen arc backwards to the bike the appearance of the mass focussed around the top.

What we will get first is likely to be the Versys 1000. We are the motorcycle will shortly be on at Kawasaki’s Pune showroom booking officially open. We the price to be around the Rs 12.5 mark, just like the and the Ninja 1000. Again, the uses the same engine as the but it is detuned so that it makes torque. Peak power is compared to 140-odd for the Z1000 but torque is 102Nm at 7,700

The less power is by design. The 1000 isn’t an off-road by role or design but it does long travel suspension. The is to create a motorcycle that is a and fast platform for all kinds of including broken Indian

The bike also gets a frame, adjustable suspension, screen and in most markets, Scorpion Trail tyres – for more than just good tarmac.

The adventure is an interesting category because supermotards at the small-displacement end, should be great fits for our conditions. Which brings us to the question, will Kawasaki the Versys 650 — the adventure tourer comes off the Ninja 650 platform — in We suspect that it is in the pipeline it’s longer travel et all will mean more at the homologation stage than the for instance.

If this does work though, we will get to buy and own a credible tourer in India for as little as Rs lakh on-road, which is value.
