Kawasaki has launched the 2019 Ninja 1000 in India at Rs 9.99 lakh (ex-showroom). The MY19 Ninja 1000 is identical to the previous model, save for new decals and minor graphics. Interestingly the price announced is exactly the same as the outgoing model which is understood, given the fact that the 2019 Ninja 1000 is mechanically unchanged.
Speaking about the launch, Yutaka Yamashita, managing director, India Kawasaki Motors said that the launch of the Ninja 1000 is taking place on the same day as in other countries. This show the importance of the Indian market for Kawasaki. He also added that the Ninja 1000 has received a positive response in India, owing to its ability to offer everyday rideability and touring capability.
The Kawasaki Ninja 1000 is assembled in India, at Kawasaki's plant in Chakan near Pune. Kits are brought via the SKD (Semi-knocked down) route. The bike is powered by a 1043 cc inline-four engine that puts out 141.9 PS at 10000 rpm and 111 Nm at 7300 rpm. For those looking for a liter-class motorcycle, the Ninja 1000's price seems fetching especially when you consider its standard features like slip and assist clutch, ABS and three-level traction control system.
The 2019 Kawasaki Ninja 1000 is available in two colors-black and green. Bookings have begun across all Kawasaki dealerships in India.
