Bajaj Auto the second largest two wheeler manufacturer in India is very much determined to build a brand of KTM and Pulsar in India. Recently there was lot of buzz regarding Japanese bike manufacturer Kawasaki. There was a lot of buzz regarding Kawasaki Ninja 150 RR, there were rumors that Kawasaki Ninja 150 RR would be launched in India. Kawasaki Ninja 150 RR is 148 cc bike with 2-stroke engine. This bike had the capacity to produce 30 PS of power, and this bike weighs around 125 kilos. But the launch of the Kawasaki Ninja 150 RR in India looks grim as 2-stroke vehicles production is banned in India, and there are no indications or efforts from Kawasaki, to replace the 2-stroke engine in Kawasaki Ninja 150 RR with a 4-stroke engine.
Kawasaki Ninja 150 RR is sold in neighboring countries with same engine capacity. Due to this reason Bajaj Auto has shown no interest in bringing more Kawasaki motorcycles on Indian roads. But according to some experts, if Kawasaki makes some modifications to the engine of Kawasaki Ninja 150 RR, by replacing the 2-stroke engine with a 4-stroke engine then this bike could fare well in the India Auto market. Because Kawasaki Ninja 150 RR has the capacity to produce 29 BHP in spite have only 150 cc engine. If Kawasaki Ninja 150 RR follows same principle what other Japanese bike manufacturers followed like Yamaha and Honda. Yamaha have designed its Yamaha R15 V to the Indian market keeping most of the similar to Yamaha R1 except the engine. Following the footsteps of Yamaha, Honda also made modifications only to the engine if Honda CBR 150R which is a smaller version of Honda VFR 1200F.
