The new Kawasaki Ninja 250R has been revealed and boy-oh-boy, what a gobsmacker it is!
We can safely put our money where our mouth is and say that this is the best looking baby Ninja ever in terms of looks and performance. Kawasaki Japan’s corporate site has revealed the very first photos and details on the 2013 Kawasaki Ninja 250R. And the very first thing about the new 250R people will notice is refreshing and revised bodywork taken straight from the DNA of its elder siblings, the Kawasaki ZX-6R and ZX-10R superbikes. The new baby Ninja sports a sharper and leaner frame along with larger slotted air vents. The tank and the rear are more aggressive, as if it has been chiseled by the help of some sharp knife, and an all new exhaust system and slick new wheels make this baby Ninja a head-turner.
In terms of performance it is quite a complete package like its predecessor but thanks to the all-new DOHC parallel twin with new pistons and crankcase, the low to mid range torque has been boosted a little. The 2013 Ninja 250R will also come with Digital Fuel Injection, but will be available only in certain markets. Ditto for the ABS. The new ABS control unit is the world’s smallest and promises to boost the overall stopping capabilities of the dual-disc braking package. The best part thought is the all new digital and refreshed console the new model incorporates. We still remember that majority of the people in India thought the old 250’s console was a bit out-dated, well that has been given a major cosmetic boost and looks amazing.
No price has yet been listed, but the Kawasaki Japan site have revealed that the 2013 Ninja 250R will be priced at $4199 i.e. around the Rs 2.34 lakh (in Japan). We are just keeping our fingers crossed as of now, hopefully this baby Ninja comes early to the Indian markets.
