Kawasaki Ninja 250R-Review, Dealers in India 46


Overview

Kawasaki has marketed the Ninja 250R since 1986 as an entry-level sport motorcycle intended for use on paved roads. The bike is marketed in the US as the Ninja 250R, as the ZX250 in the UK, and as the GPX250 elsewhere. Bajaj India has launched the much awaited in Indian market.

But it is not going to compare with other R15, Karizma ZMR due to price tag for Ninja is mind boggling 2.69 L (Ex- showroom India).

Performance Figures Of Kawasaki Ninja 250R:
1) 0-100km/h : 5.75 sec
2) Top speed : 176km/h
3) Fuel economy : 42.5 Kmpl – Claimed By Bajaj India

Ninja 250R features refined intake and exhaust ports contribute to good off-idle response and smooth power delivery. Also the valve timing and lift has been designed for strong low- and mid-range torque while direct valve actuation ensures reliable high-rpm operability. And valves with thin heads and stems reduce reciprocating weight with 2-into-1 exhaust system contributes to the Ninja 250R’s low- and mid-range torque and smooth, step-free power curve. It meets strict emissions with dual catalyzers; one in the collector pipe and the other in the silencer positioning the first catalyzer as close to the exhaust ports maximizes its efficiency as well.

The fourth-generation model is marketed as the Ninja 250R in all markets. The motorcycle is also referred to by its platform designation, EX250, to which a generational suffix is attached. In the United States, previous generations of the bike (EX250-E/F/G/H) were already being marketed as members of the “Ninja” family of sportbikes, while outside of the U.S. the bike was known variously as the ZZR-250, ZX-250, or as the GPX-250R. One of the earliest generations, the EX250-C, was given the name GPZ-250.

Since the introduction of the model in 1986, the Ninja 250 has been often used as a “starting class” bike in club racing around the world. The AFM in California has been especially involved with 250 Production racing since the bike was released, including the since faded Honda VTR250.

    Ninja 250r is one of the best selling 250cc bikes around the world….people who think that prize of ninja is high,they r completely wrong………….no other 250cc bike would provide u such comfort, handling, power ang excitement of riding a 2500cc bike as ninja does……..with 33bhp and 250cc, the mileage ninja provide(35kmpl-42kmpl) is awsome…………so NINJA is the best sports bike 4 all bikers who r graduating at the world of bikes……..
