Kawasaki is riding high in the United Arab Emirates right now as it just posted a 45% increase in its sales in the country over last year. It is not even known exactly what led to the incredible increase in sales in the country, but it was the Ninjas that led the way with the most units sold in the first 10 months of the year.

One factor in Kawasaki's success was its attractive financing offers with as low as 2.99% interest and zero down payments. Certain credit cards also qualified for a zero percent interest.

In a country like the UAE where there is a lot of money, buying a sportsbike can easily become a trend. They almost sell themselves.

Can't blame them, Kawasaki makes some of the best bikes, if you want to go fast for a good price, Kawi is where you want to spend your money. Wouldn't be surprised if they get color scheme's and special edition models just for their market.

I didn't even know UAE was a big powersport buyer.

All I hear about UAE is luxury cars.
I think it's only natural that a market that calls for a lot of high performance and high end cars would also want high power bikes. Car can be limiting, mainly due to their weight and size.

Not too surprised here. If you put anything luxury on the market in the UAE it will do well. Its not like I've seen web news articles that talk about the coolest bike that was spotted in Dubai recently though. I want to see some ridiculous motorcycles that some oil heir owns in Dubai.

Dubai cops are close to signing a big deal with Kawasaki as well..

Chances are it's going to be some $100,000 ducati, maybe even gold plated. There's no limit to those oil heirs in Dubai and the Saudi's

45 percent increase is a massive increase.

but i guess with low financing an zero down pretty much anyone can afford one.

Everything is going great for them right now. Check back in 50 years or so when all the oil is gone and it might be a different story. I wonder why the 45% growth now though. it doesn't really seem like the Kawasaki Ninja 1000 would be the most popular bike in the country. I would expect something far more powerful and expensive to be the top seller.

Oil might be one of the things really helping them but for all we know they could have used that money to invest into other things instead of blowing it only on fun stuff.

I think in 50 years the US economy would have collapsed by then :p so they aren't the only ones to worry.
The U.S. economy is far worse off and will continue to be in the future. I see the UAE being better off. The U.S. owes China and some other nations big time.
