Kawasaki have announced a much-needed discount to the prospective buyers of the Z800. Amidst all the hoopla surrounding the hike in excise duty, the company has reduced the price of the Z800 by Rs 55,000. It will now be available at Rs 7.35 lakh (ex-showroom, Pune). This is due to major cost reduction and production streamlining at the manufacturing unit in Thailand where the Z800 is built.
The price cut may have been initiated due to a stock clearance drive, so as to make way for the MY2015 model. Even so, the discount is welcome news and will be effective till March 2015.
