Kawasaki Z1000, R and Z250

Bike India - - IGNITION -

IN­DIA KAWASAKI MO­TORS HAVE LAUNCHED THE LAT­EST Z1000, its bet­ter equipped vari­ant, the Z1000R, and the smallest Z bike in the coun­try, the Z250. At a small event held in Pune, the com­pany in­tro­duced the 2017 edi­tion of the Z1000, which will be priced at Rs 14.49 lakh and the Z1000R that will be priced at Rs 15.49 lakh, with the Z250 cost­ing Rs 3.09 lakh, all prices ex-show­room, Pune.

All three bikes are now BS IV-com­pli­ant thanks to a re­tuned ECU, new cat­alytic con­vert­ers and an evap­o­ra­tor ap­pa­ra­tus. Both the 1,000-cc bikes now have bet­ter low- and mid-range de­liv­ery thanks to the re­tuned ECU. These two bikes also get re­tuned front sus­pen­sion for bet­ter han­dling. The R vari­ant gets an Öh­lins S46DR1S monoshock, whereas the Z1000 gets a new link­age for more lever­age. Kawasaki are of­fer­ing the R vari­ant with Brembo M50 brake cal­lipers, gear po­si­tion in­di­ca­tor and a spe­cial paint job.

The Z250, which wasn’t present at the event but was launched along­side its big­ger sib­lings, fea­tures just one change: a BS IV­com­pli­ant en­gine. Much of the bike re­mains the same.
