2013 Kawasaki Z800 in Malaysia is CKD but it is not locally assembled (massive photo gallery and tech specs included) – RM47,989 not OTR

October 14th, 2012 10:56 pm by


I have been wondering about the CKD status of the newly launched Kawasaki Z800. So, I got to chat with one of my friend who are very close with the Kawasaki people here in Malaysia. The picture below is the screenshot from a chat via Whatsapp. 

Kawasaki Motors Malaysia is giving the status CKD of this Z800, even it is not made in Malaysia. It is made in Thailand which is valid for SEAsian CKD tax model. Therefore the price is way more affordable at RM47,989. For comparison, a lower cc bike that is the 2013 Kawasaki ZX6 636 is price at RM71k+ since it is CBU from Japan. If you are wondering whether the ZX6 636 is also available in Malaysia, my friend said yes, it is. Massive gallery of the Z800 are included as below:
