Kawasaki to launch Ninja Z250SL, ZX6R 636 and Vulcan S in India. Price, main specs inside.

In the recent past, Bajaj has been on a spree to launch new performance motorcycles in India and they're still not done with it. Moreover, their partner in crime, Kawasaki, is also going to join them soon. Kawasaki is planning to give us Indians the taste of their performance and reliability once again. The dishes in the oven this time are the already talked-about naked Z250SL, the fully fared typical mid-sized superbike ZX6R 636 and and a Harley-type (yeah, that's a custom-term I hear a lot from laymen!) cruiser Vulcan S.

The Z250SL can prove to be a good choice for those who want a premium quarter litre-machine for urban use or sports touring(lack of proper sports tourers) and can't afford the steeply priced Z250R. Though, a single cylinder compared to a twin makes a lot a difference, but then that's what Kawasaki is ready to serve you at that budget. The bike will be powered by a single-cylinder liquid-cooled DOHC motor capable of churning out 27.62bhp of power at 9700 revs and 22.6Nm of torque at 8200 revs. You can expect the simple soothing dessert in your plate in 2nd or3rd quarter of current year at the estimated price of INR 2 Lacs.

The Ninja ZX6R 636 will we a pure mid-sized superbike with an inline-four engine geometry having total capacity of 636cc. The revv-happy IL4 motor will give you the power of 129 horses when you twist your wrist till the engine hits 13,500 revs. The torque of 70Nm at 11,500 revs will be there at your disposal. You can expect the goodies like slipper clutch, ABS and Traction Control on this mid-sized monster coming in your reach at around INR 11-13 Lacs.

Keeping the cruiser-lover motorcycle junkies happy, the Japanese company will offer the Vulcan S with a 649cc twin-pot heart beating under the saddle of the existing Ninja 650R. The heart pumps out the power of 60 horses with the tacho needle hitting 7500 mark and the torque of 63Nm at 6600 revs. Expect it to be low-slung with saddle and foot pegs adjustment and an optional ABS. If you're eying this one then be ready to make your pocket go INR 6 Lacs lighter.

While the Z250SL and Vulcan S are expected to come as Completely-Knocked-Down units, the ZX6R 636 will probably hit the market through the CBU route.

Do these motorcycles make you drool over them? Or do they make you put your brain in planning mode? Share your thoughts in the comments section below.

  2. Pulsar 150 DTS-i was first introduced in India in 2001. Its a perfect sports bike for Indian road and traffic. It was one of the first 150cc bikes to be released to the Indian market. It is powered by a 149.05cc 4-stroke, DTS-i, air cooled, single cylinder engine.
