Kawasaki unveils the new 2018 Ninja 250 at the Tokyo Motor Show will all new design and revised powertrain to offer more to its Asian customers
Kawasaki has made a comeback into the quarter-litre segment by unveiling the Ninja 250 at the Tokyo Motor Show. The bike has been launched along with the Ninja 400 and will hit the Indian market within the next couple of months. Major updates include design and mechanical changes.
The 2018 Ninja 250 receives a newly designed front facia, with a sharp nose and sleek twin headlamp setup. The new redesigned fairing is more sharp and edgy, improving the aerodynamics of the motorcycle and giving it a new look. The fairing also houses the turn indicators that are integrated within. Silver accents and sliders, present on the fairing have been moved down as opposed to the older model.
Talking about the engine, the previous model featured a 249cc, liquid cooled parallel twin engine, with a power output of 32.5bhp at 11000 rpm and torque of 22Nm at 8200 rpm. The new generation produces 6 bhp more than the previous model, but we are not so sure about the torque increase. The 2018 Ninja 250 was rumoured to get upside down forks, but according to the photos, the bike gets standard telescopic forks. The bike weighs 167kg, which should make for an interesting power to weight ratio.
Kawasaki had an impressive start this year by launching the Z650 and 3rd gen Ninja 1000. With the replacement of the Ninja 300 by Ninja 400, the Ninja 250 will add more zing to the quarter litre sports bike segment. The bike comes in direct competition with the CBR250R and we can’t wait to review this green beast in India. Stay tuned for more updates. 2018 Ninja 250 will go against the likes of the Suzuki GSX-250 and Yamaha R25 in various markets.
