Kawasaki India has launched the 2017 model of the Z250 at Rs. 3.09 lakhs, the Kawasaki Z1000 at Rs. 14.49 lakhs and the Z1000R at a price of Rs. 15.49 lakhs. The Z250 doesn’t quite get a comprehensive update.
The 249cc engine is now BS IV compliant and continues to make 32bhp and 21Nm of torque. The Z1000 too gets a BS IV engine which retains its power and torque output at 142bhp and 111Nm of torque. The ECU has been tinkered with as well to ensure smoother power delivery.
The Z1000R gets the same changes as the Z1000 but gets some extra kit in form of Brembo M50 Monobloc callipers, special disc brakes at the front and an Ohlins Monoshock at the rear. The braking setup on the Z1000R is the same as it on the Ninja H2R. The graphics on the body are new as well. With these launches, Kawasaki now has 5 naked motorcycles ranging from a 250cc model and going up all the way to 1000cc.
