While the asking price of the 2022 Kawasaki Ninja 1000SX is out, deliveries will begin only in December

India Kawasaki Motors has launched the 2022 Ninja 1000SX with a price tag of Rs. 11.40 lakhs (ex-showroom). For model year 2022 (MY22), the motorcycle comes in 2 colours – Emerald Blazed Green and Metallic Matte Graphenesteel Gray.

Apart from the updated colourways, the sport-tourer remains unchanged both aesthetically, it retains full-LED light setup, and mechanically.

Emerald Blazed Green
It has a seat height of 835 mm and ground clearance of 135 mm

It continues to feature a 4.3-inch TFT dash, smartphone connectivity via the Rideology App, cruise control, 2 power modes, 4 riding modes, 3-level (and switchable) traction control, ABS and cornering management function.

Power comes from a 1043cc inline 4-cylinder engine delivering a maximum of 142 PS at 10,000 RPM and 111 Nm of peak torque at 8000 RPM. It is teamed to a 6-speed gearbox with a quickshifter.

However, this is a rather hefty machine with a 238 kg wet weight. But, it does have a 19-litre fuel tank and a 1440 mm wheelbase to aid long-distance touring.

It is fitted with Bridgestone’s Battlax Hypersport S22 tyres

As for the suspension, the 2022 Kawasaki Ninja 1000SX price gets one 41 mm inverted front fork (120 mm travel) and a horizontal back-link, gas-charged rear shock (144 mm travel) with full adjustability all-round.

Stopping power comes from dual 300 mm front discs with 4-piston calipers and a single 250 mm rear disc with a single-piston caliper, while the wide tyres (120/70-section front and 190/50-section rear) wrap the 17-inch rims.

Do note that the cost of this motorcycle, like every other 2-wheeler, has increased exponentially over the past 1.5 years. For example, in June last year, the model year 2020 Ninja 1000SX saw its cost increase by Rs. 50,000/- and it was retailed at Rs. 10.79 lakhs (ex-showroom).
