2008_Ninja250R_RightHere you have the smallest Ninja, but this is no baby by any stretch of imagination. With 249cc parallel twins, liquid-cooled, six speed gearbox, dual overhead cam, 32.5PS at 11000rpms, 22nm of torque at 8200rpm, 2-1 exhausts pipe for better low and mid range power and 175 kmph it’s a monster in itself. It’s blisteringly fast and has a fuel capacity of 4.8 gallons. The new fuel gauge on the instrument panel gives a good idea of its estimated range on long drives.

Ninja 250R is in the market since Kawasaki 1986 as an entry-level sport motorcycle. The bike is named differently in different markets, like in US it’s called Ninja 250R, in UK its ZX250 and elsewhere it’s GPX250.

With an excellent fuel economy, Ninja 250R is the best looking 250cc sports bike in its segment with no direct competition. Rear view mirrors are intelligently mounted and gel brilliantly with the overall looks of the bike.  It gets it’s very aggressive stance from its dual-lamp headlamp. The black tinted windscreen is fitted well between the mirrors and the indicators are peeping out of the faring which looks quite decent.kawasaki_ninja_250r_se_01
