Posts its split with Bajaj Auto limited in 2017,Kawasaki is on the verge of a massive revamp of its operations in India .
Earlier in April 2017 Bajaj and Kawasaki officially announced that they are no longer partners in sales and service in India and this has set Kawasaki back by many years since the bike makers can no longer continue selling (and servicing) their motorcycles via Bajaj’s widespread network.
Earlier these two work together as partners and Kawsaki used to assemble all their motorcycles at Bajaj Auto’s Akurdi factory in Pune.
The company is establishing a new development center in Pune, where it already has its assembling line. Kawasaki will increase its local procurement,said Yamashita. Currently, the company imports bikes as completely knocked down (CKD) and semi-knocked down units, she further added.
The installed capacity at the Pune plant is around 10,000 units and the overall capacity can be increased to 60,000 units, if all machinery is in place.
FYI… Kawasaki ended its eight year alliance with Bajaj Auto for sales and services in India. India Kawasaki Motors is a completely owned subsidiary of Japan’s Kawasaki Heavy Industries Ltd. The unit was established in India in 2010.Rajasthan Tourism App - Welcomes to the land of Sun, Sand and adventures
