Bajaj Auto has confirmed that the launch of the Kawasaki Ninja 650R in India would be in the next two months. Eric Vas (President, Bajaj Auto) said that the company is waiting for the CKD definition to be cleared before they bring out bigger Ninjas in the country. He also stated that the bigger Ninjas would be priced competitively. If the Kawasaki Ninja 650R is launched at a price of Rs. 6 lakhs, then Hyosung GT650R would have to run for some serious cover.
