We’ve been hearing rumours about Kawasaki bringing a 4-cylinder 250cc Ninja that would go by the name Ninja ZX-25R for quite some time now. And every time there’s new info about it, we get that much more excited. Now, Kawasaki finally put an end to all the anticipation by showcasing the Ninja ZX-25R at the Tokyo Motor Show 2019.
The new Ninja will indeed be powered by a 249cc, in-line 4-cylinder engine that is totally out of this world for a bike of this segment. Such bikes mostly feature either a single-cylinder or a twin-cylinder engine. Throwing in two more cylinders needs guts and only Kawasaki could do it.
We still don’t have an official spec sheet but the Ninja ZX-25R will likely produce around 60 bhp. That’s going to be one hell of a quarter-litre bike, wouldn’t it? Kawasaki will also make sure the ZX25-R gets all the advanced electronics it needs – quickshifter, traction control, riding modes, etc.
And of course, the Ninja ZX-25R had to look splendid. That’s why Kawasaki used the styling of its litre-class kind, the ZX-10R, however, the ZX-25R looks more like the Ninja 400. What do you think?
Let’s see when does Kawasaki reveal more details of the Ninja ZX-25R. Well, whenever that would be, we don’t see this green monster coming to India any time soon as it’s going to carry an extremely heavy price tag.
