Kawasaki showcased the new single-cylinder Ninja 250SL and the Z250SL at EICMA, along with the the naked version of the Ninja 300 – christened as the Z300.
Basically, the 250SL and the Z250SL are faired and naked versions of the same machine – a 249cc, single-cylinder motor producing 28 PS and 22.6 Nm of torque. Both the new 250cc models by Kawasaki are more budget-focussed motorcycles as compared to of the Ninja 300 and the Z300.
The Ninja 250SL is available in a black and green and a white and green colour combinations, while the Z250SL comes in green or black colour schemes. Both the Kwackers come with the option of “the world’s smallest ABS unit.”
The 250 models were launched earlier this year for the Asian markets in February, and now they finally make their way to the European market. No word yet on whether they will make their way into India, but we sure hope to see a proportionate price cut for half the missing cylinders.
