Bajaj has been actively participating in the sport bike segment and this is quite evident by the fact that it has joined hands with two of the leaders in sport bike segment, Kawasaki and KTM. Gladly whichever model Bajaj has come out with, the response has been flattering enough. Be it the Ninja 250R, KTM Duke 200 or Kawasaki Ninja 650R, all have tasted appreciable success.
Today the company launched the 2012 iteration of the Ninja 650 in New Delhi and is priced at Rs. 4.99 Lakhs (USD $9080) ex-showroom. Kawasaki has given the Ninja a complete makeover that imparts a more aggressive feel to the bike in contrast to its unappealing predecessor. Importantly the 2012 Ninja is inspired from the ZX-14R and its design cues are on the lines of the same.
