Recently Kawasaki Bangladesh has launched their one of the most anticipated super sport motorcycles - Ninja and Z, first ever in Bangladesh for the delight of motorcycle community and enthusiasts at a 5-star hotel on a Wednesday night. In that event, Director of Kawasaki Bangladesh Kosuke Yoshida and Operations Manager Safat Ishtiaq unveiled the new sport bikes - Kawasaki Ninja 125 (ABS) and Kawasaki Z125 (ABS) - in the presence of a good number of motorcycle enthusiasts and media personnel.

According to bike enthusiasts, these new bikes will set a new standard in the motorcycle industry with their high specifications and performance unmatched with any other competing brands.

Director Yoshida said, “By launching this two bikes with state of the ark features, will be a beginning of a new era for the bike industry in Bangladesh. With strong vision and innovative technologies, these new models will fulfill the ultimate desire of the Bangladeshi customers.”

The company has also shared about their future plans to bring in more exciting models if the engine displacement limitation is increased to 250cc.

Notably, the engine of Kawasaki, often described as being ‘different than other bikes’ was built in 1949 by aircraft engineers of Kawasaki Aircraft Company. Mass production of Kawasaki motorcycles began at 1953 in Japan, putting to use the advanced development skills and the manufacturing knowhow gained through aircraft engine development, and has since produced many iconic machines. No matter the time period, the company has remained on the cutting edge of two-wheeled technology. Over the years Kawasaki has released numerous new models that have helped shape the market, and in the process, created many enduring legends based on the speed and power of their machines.
