    Base model without ABS - $4800 - Rs 480,000 approx
    with ABS - $5500 - Rs 550,000 approx

    Duty - Rs 310,000 approx.

    Air freight - Rs 160,000 PIA

    Container freight - Rs 85,000 approx

    Misc charges clearing etc. - Rs 50,000 approx

    So, the Kawasaki Ninja 300 will set you back anywhere between Rs 925,000 to 11 lacs, depending on whether you go for the ABS or non ABS model and whether you ship through sea or air.

    Hope this helps.

    2008 model, not possible. Only 2009 and above models can be imported into Pakistan right now. From next year, 2010 and so on. Sadly, Kawasaki Ninja 300 was launched in 2013. So, it's just a year old model anywhere in the world. Even if we import a used 2013 Ninja 300, there won't be much savings with the purchase price abroad and even the applicable duty rebate.

    You can check the ongoing price of 2013 models on Autotrader to see how much value they lose in a year. Not much, I am afraid. So, a 2013 Ninja 300 in good condition and low miles will still set you back around 7.5 - 8 lacs for the base model.

    In most international markets bikes lose the most value after they have aged for 3 years.

    It would be great if people stop using a stupid term such as HEAVY BIKE for defining motorbikes that are actually known as SUPERSPORT.
    in our local street language, any bike with a bit of fairing is called heavy bike, it doesn't necessarily have to be a liter-class supersport

    Whether litre class, 600 cc or not. There is no term such as Heavy Bike in the world. It's just a result of jahalat.

    I know this because I learnt this the hard way. A decade or so ago when I was in college, I used to call them heavy bikes too. And then I went abroad for studies. I clearly remember that day even now, when I entered a bike retailer in West London, just for window shopping even though I was posing as a prospective buyer.

    I kept saying Heavy Bike, Heavy Bike to the sales man, and he was just staring at me for a good 5 minutes before saying, "Heavy Bike? What are you looking for exactly?" And I kept repeating Heavy Bike, Heavy Bike. After a good 15 minutes, he said, "I don't know what a Heavy Bike is. Can you pinpoint from the bikes that are on display here."

    I quickly pointed my finger towards a white R6 there, and he went, "Ah, those are called Supersport or simply Sport bikes." I was so embarrassed at the time, that I had to apologize and thank him for correcting me. I have not used that stupid term, Heavy Bikes, to-date.

    A bike being heavy has nothing to do with how fast it can go. Actually it's the complete opposite. All bike manufacturers fight to keep the weight of Supersport bikes as low as possible to make them more competitive every year. So, there is no direct co-relation between them being Heavy and being Fast.

    And it's NOT just the 1000cc bikes that are called Supersport, but all including the 600cc or any of the sport configuration bikes with a small engine capacity. Even the 125cc, 300cc etc. bikes come under the Supersport category.

    To confirm this check the link below. You will find KTM RC 125, RC 390 and the mighty 1190 RC8 R under the same SUPERSPORT category.

    KTM Supersport

    So, the bottom line is that the word, Heavy Bike, is a result of ignorance and jahalat more than anything else.

    Are you sure about the freight charges by sea....... 85k seems like a lot.

    I have written 85k approx, which is the approximate cost. The problem with importing just 1 bike through container is that you have to POOL with other person, as only a stupid person will buy a whole 20ft container just for transporting 1 bike. So, in case of pooling with someone the cost tends to be higher.

    If you have bought your own container and are bringing 2 cars (1 big and 1 small), along with 1 or even 2 bikes can squeeze in one 20ft container then the shipping cost for the bike will end up averaging close to 50K approx. But when you are bringing your bike in someone else's container who might be bringing his own cars and will to let your bike be pooled in his container, they always tend to ask a higher cost to earn profit for letting your sole bike be brought in the person's container.

    I hope it makes sense now.
