Ninja 650 BS6 price hike is roughly 10 percent of the cost of the outgoing model. We discuss the new MY21 motorcycle and its features…
Kawasaki has introduced its new MY21 Ninja 650 in India which is now Bharat Stage 6 compliant and the third motorcycle in the range to adopt cleaner emissions – after Z900 and sibling naked Z650.
The motorcycle continues with the same 649 cc parallel twin engine but its power and torque figures have not been revealed by the company yet. For reference, the BS4 version churned 68 PS of max power at 8000 rpm and 65.7 Nm of peak torque at 6500 rpm.
In the process, Kawasaki has also lent it a midlife refresh with new fairing which shares its design language with the Ninja 400 and others and it does look fresher. It comes with twin LED headlamps and new Dunlop Sportmax Roadsport 2 tyres which promise better grip.
Also on offer is a 4.3 inch TFT coloured instrument console which has smartphone connectivity feature via the RIDEOLOGY app on your smartphone.
MY21 Ninja 650 BS6 Price
Instead of a fixed price, Kawasaki has said that the new BS6 version of the Ninja 650 will cost between Rs 6.45 Lakh to Rs 6.75 Lakh. The outgoing Ninja 650 is priced at Rs 5.89 Lakh (standard version) and Rs 5.99 Lakh (KRT version) which means that the price hike is at least Rs 56,000 or roughly 9.5 percent.
