The teaser on the Bajaj Auto website is now showing a countdown. It says 16 days to go for the launch of the bigger Kawasaki, the Ninja 650R or the ER-6f, as it is known in Europe. We now have to wait for the launch of the bike which will fall on the 8th of June, 2011 and also see how Bajaj and Kawasaki price the 650cc motorcycle. In the meanwhile there are other rumours doing the rounds that Bajaj is working with Kawasaki to bring the price of the Ninja 250R down to around Rs. 2.2 lakh on road. This could be to combat the competition from the Honda CBR 250R. We emphasize that this rumour is unconfirmed, though it would indeed be nice if the price of the 250R is brought down to the above mentioned price point.
