Japanese two-wheeler major, Kawasaki is reportedly planning to bring its Versys 1000 and ER-6n motorcycles to India.
Kawasaki which recently introduced two new bikes in the sub-continent is said to be aiming to expand its foothold in the market. Currently, the motorcycle major sells four models-the Ninja ZX-10R and the Ninja ZX-14R, followed by the Z1000 and Ninja 1000 in India, and is likely to launch the Z800 next year.
Both the Versys 1000 and The ER-6n are expected to get a soft launch at Kawasaki showrooms in Pune by mid of 2014, according to Auto Car India

On the other hand, ER-6n naked bike draws its power from a four-stroke, parallel-twin, 649cc, liquid-cooled, eight-valve engine that is mated to a six-speed gearbox. It generates a power of 72bhp at 8,500rpm and a torque of 6.5kgm at 7,000rpm.
