Kawasaki India has announced a price hike across its motorcycle range starting 1st April, 2019. The company has announced that it will be increasing the prices of selected models by 7 percent starting the said date that will be effective on the ex-showroom Delhi price. Kawasaki India said in a press statement that IKM strives hard to keep the price of its models very competitive in the India market. However, due to the increasing costs of raw materials and fluctuations in foreign exchange rates, IKM is compelled to change the price of its models.
The company has not revealed as of now that which particular models will be a part of the price hike. Kawasaki recently launched the new Ninja ZX-6R and Versys 1000 at quite competitive prices and the two might well be a part of the price hike next month. Also, the locally assembled Ninja 300 that was launched at a killer price tag can also see price revision. The new prices of the Kawasaki bikes will be displayed on the company's official website for India on 1st April, 2019, the release added.
