Kawasaki may just be readying itself to gain a stronger standing in the Indian motorcycle market. The new Z900 has been now been made available at a brilliant price tag of Rs 7.68 lakh (ex-showroom), along with the 2017 Ninja 1000 at Rs 9.98 lakh (ex-showroom). Only 20 units of the sports tourer have been allotted for India. Speaking of the Z900, it was launched earlier this year, but it came with several company fitted accessories that resulted in a bigger price tag. Kawasaki has now introduced it again, this time without the additional accessories that trimmed the price tag significantly. It was earlier priced at Rs 9 lakh. The Z900 is now more competitively priced to take on the competition - Triumph Street Triple and Ducati Monster 797.

The Ninja 1000 is powered by a 1043cc in-line four-cylinder engine that produces 140 bhp @ 10,000 rpm and 111 Nm of torque @ 7,300 rpm and is paired to a six-speed gearbox. The new motorcycle's engine will be a lot smoother with revised ECU settings for better power delivery, along with a secondary balancer on the crankshaft to cut down on vibrations.

The motorcycle will come with riding aids such as Kawasaki Traction Control (KTRC), Kawasaki Intelligent anti-lock Brake System (KIBS), Power Mode and Kawasaki Corner Management Function (KCMF) along with a three stage adjustable windshield and ABS. The new Ninja also features three different riding modes.

The Z900 was launched earlier this year, replacing the Z800, and is now on sale without the fly screen, crash bobbins, engine casing cover, 12V charging socket, radiator guard and pillion seat cowl.

It is powered by a 948 cc liquid cooled, four-cylinder engine that produces 125 hp of power and 98.6 Nm of torque, and is paired to a six-speed gearbox. The motorcycle features a slipper clutch and ABS as standard. Suspension duties will be covered by 41 mm upside-down front forks and horizontal back-link mono-shock at the rear.
