After being launched in Indonesia, then brought to Thailand, it is only logical that this 2013 Kawasaki Ninja 250R and Z800 should come to our ground too. That that time is now. Kawasaki Motors Malaysia are now bringing the new bikes to Malaysia with the launch ceremony at Sunway Convention Hall.
The pricing is not known yet, but will update as soon as we got the info.
UPDATE I & II: Just got to know the confirmed price:
2013 Kawasaki Ninja 250R price is less than
RM25k RM22,589 (not OTR)
2013 Kawasaki z800 price is less than
RM45k RM47,989 (not OTR)
The Kawasaki Ninja 250R and Z800 is considered as ASEAN CKD. It is being manufactured in Thailand. Compared to previous Z750, it is considered CBU since it is made in Japan. The benefit of ASEAN CKD is that the tax supposedly lower than CBU. I’m not sure how it works in details, but it seem that the price is right for the Ninja 250R.
Thanks to Manfred from QBEE Motor Group for the tips and pictures. You can also checks out this Ninja 250R and Z800 soon at QBEE Superbike Center in Johor Bahru.
