When synthesizers have all same functions including weighted keys and also have extra lot of functions..then why are mfg. Co. Sell digital pianos..
for eg. Why not simply go for korg kross instead of korg lp180 when both are of same price??

Why does a Mercedes cost three times as much as a Volkswagen if all they do is take you from home to the supermarket and back?

The differences are in the quality and the features.

Not everyone is willing to spend three times as much on a keyboard they may not ever learn how to play while a seasoned professional will be looking for advanced features and pristine sounds.

This is not rocket science. This is how the free market system works.

Even if two models-- one a synth and one a digital piano-- cost exactly the same, they usually have different features and specs. For example, their maximum polyphony might be different, and there's usually a big difference between the number of timbres (instrument sounds) they have. A digital piano is typically going to have fewer timbres, generally focusing on acoustic and electric piano, harpsichord, and maybe organ, acoustic guitar, bass guitar, and strings. A synth is typically going to have a smorgasbord of timbres from all sorts of instruments. A good rule of thumb is that the number of timbres is often proportional to their quality. In other words, a digital piano might have only a handful of timbres compared to a synth, but they will generally be of a high quality, and the keyboard itself (the key action and responsiveness) will usually be closer to that of an acoustic piano.
