Kawasaki has been going hammer-and-tongs over its Indian tryst since the beginning of this year. It has decided to let go of Bajaj’s supportive arm, to venture out into the Indian waters all alone. Few days back, they unveiled the Ninja 1000 as well as the Z1000 at an ex-showroom price of 12.5 lakhs.
Though no more details were mentioned by the officials, we feel it is the Kawasaki Z800 that could make its way to the Indian shores next month. Incidentally, Kawasaki’s Z800 has been on display at the exclusive showroom of Kawasaki in Pune.
Here are the specifications of the Kawasaki Z800 :
- 806 cc four-stroke, Inline four cylinder
- Liquid-cooled engine
- Peak power of 113 PS @ 10,200 rpm
- Peak torque of 83 Nm @ 8,000 rpm
- 6-Speed tranny
- A couple of Four-piston, semi-floating 310 mm petal discs at the front
- A solo single-piston, 250 mm petal disc at the rear
- A weight of 231 kgs for the ABS-equipped variant; 2 kilos less for the one which lacks the “Electronic Guardian”
The Kawasaki Z800 will definitely be less pricier than its bigger sibling, the Kawasaki Z1000. In the lineup of Kawasaki, this will be a model which could sell in greater volumes as compared to the faired / naked 1000 cc variants, thus giving a fillip to its Indian expansion plans.
If provided with the necessary investment, wouldn’t you go for this sinister-looking naked bike??
