New Ninja 650 BS6 price hike is roughly 4 percent only. It is lesser than the tentative cost Kawasaki announced in January 2020…
After announcing it in January 2020, Kawasaki has finally launched 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 and produces 68 PS of peak power at 8000 rpm and 64 Nm of max torque at 6700 rpm. There are no changes to the power figures but torque is down by 1.7 Nm and peaks 200 rpm later (the BS4 version churned 65.7 Nm 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.

|2021 Ninja 650 BS6
|Rs 6.24 Lakh
In January, Kawasaki announced that the new Ninja 650 will cost between Rs 6.45 Lakh to Rs 6.75 Lakh. However, in its final announcement, the declared price of the refreshed mid-sizer is Rs 6.24 Lakh as it will be locally produced. The outgoing Ninja 650 BS4 was priced at Rs 5.89 Lakh (standard version) and Rs 5.99 Lakh (KRT version) which means that the price hike is Rs 24,000 or roughly 4 percent.
The new Ninja 650 BS6 is offered in two colours – Lime Green/Ebony and Pearl Flat Stardust White/Metallic Flat Spark Black. It will be available at all Kawasaki dealers in India.
