Kawasaki ZX25R price revelation in New Zealand has hinted at the possible placement in most of the countries the motorcycle is destined for…
Kawasaki has prepared Ninja ZX-25R, which it calls as a ‘no-holds- barred track spec motorcycle‘. It replicates the excitement of the 1990’s era ZXR250. The biggest USP of the model is its 250 cc engine which comprises four cylinders – a configuration very rarely seen!
The motorcycle is made for very limited markets, Indonesia being one of them. While the motorcycle was about to be launched in the South Asian market, it has been delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Meanwhile, Kawasaki has officially announced the opening of pre-bookings in New Zealand. In an official press note, the company has called for bookings of the track scorcher. However, deliveries are scheduled for as late as December 2020.
Now, here comes the biggest revelation which everyone was waiting for – ZX25R’s price…
Kawasaki ZX25R Price (New Zealand)
|ZX25R||$15,990 + ORC|
ORC is additional on-road cost like registration, additional part prices etc.
It equates to Rs 7.84 Lakh in INR and is costlier than all the variants of Ninja 650 sold there (approx price $14,995). In fact, this price is similar to what the 2019 Z900 used to cost in that country (the 2020 Z900 is $1505 costlier).
This is a very high price to pay for what eventually is a quarter liter motorcycle. But Kawasaki has its reasons – it says the ZX25R uses a lot of the expensive features of the supersport-spec siblings like ZX6R and ZX10R. This is why it decided to sell it as a brought-to-order model rather than stocking it in dealerships.
Here we have the first pricing hints of the extremely interesting model. However, Kawasaki has still not revealed how many horses does it produce…
