There are also certain things to consider before you buy a bike from Kawasaki. On last April, 2017, Kawasaki has ended their 8 year partnership with Bajaj and now Kawasaki bikes wont be serviced in Bajaj service centers. This is a main issue you need to consider before buying any of Kawasaki products. You may not have a service center of their company nearby your town, so it will be a herculean task to get in direct touch with company officials or a far-away service center.
Next thing that concerns a Kawasaki biker is that the bike parts are pretty expensive than their counterparts. You need to pay a big chunk of money for maintenance and replacing parts. But as the biking scenario in our country is changing and developing, more innovative products are coming from other major companies in each bike segment. If you can wait till next year, you will have great options to choose from. The one we would suggest waiting for will be the new 390cc touring bike from KTM! It will be a revolutionary product and will be worth every penny. For more instant news on KTM 390cc touring bike subscribe our email below and follow our Facebook page.
