8. With so many models current and in the past, how does Kawasaki price its spare parts?
Parts pricing is a very complex issue but inevitably pricing is based around the manufacturing price of the component, its predicted demand and a series of calculations regarding the cost of keeping such an item in stock; as well as its movement from place of manufacture to warehouse and local storage. Kawasaki monitors all these factors and more and, where appropriate, changes the price of spare parts during the period of their availability that usually being 10 years from the original date of manufacture of the motorcycle that they are intended for.
