Kawasaki Ninja 125 & Kawasaki Z125 Launching In Bangladesh

So readers now it confirmed that the Kawasaki Ninja 125 & Kawasaki Z125 launching soon in the market. But the question remains will it hit our market? If so then possibly when and what would be the price?

Coming to the release of Ninja 125 and Kawasaki Z125 in Bangladesh we can be hopeful as Kawasaki Motorcycle officially operating in Bangladesh. Furthermore the quarter liter single cylinder Ninja and Z manufactured specially for Asian regions.

Hence being released in Europe it also should release in Asia. Cause Asia is the biggest market of small capacity motorcycles. Therefore we are hopeful and expect to get the motorcycle in our market just after the arrival in Asia.

Coming to the second question when it can be available in our market, it’s quite unpredictable. But can expect the earliest time from Kawasaki Bangladesh. The reason behind is Kawasaki literarily struggling for mainstream street sports model motorcycles for Asian countries.

Hence the third and last question comes what would be the price range. No sources have specifically mentioned it but we can make a guess. In the Asian market Kawasaki Ninja250SL and Z250SL price is around 3000.00USD or little more. Hence it is possible that it will be priced lesser for new 125cc models. So at least it will be quite near to our premium 150cc motorcycle prices in Bangladesh.

So readers we see that’s enough at this time about the new Kawasaki Ninja 125 & Kawasaki Z125 Launching. Therefore we expect to see the motorcycles released soon in international market and thus in Asia and of-course in Bangladesh.

We also hope Kawasaki Motorcycle Bangladesh also will be serious and caring to launch the models in Bangladesh. We are also expecting affordable and comfortable prices from them. Hence let’s wait for the best; therefore thanks everyone.
