Kawasaki has launched its latest offering for the Asian markets, the Z250 naked bike, in Indonesia. The Z250 will be the street version of its faired Ninja 250R and will be powered by the same motor as on the baby Ninja – a parallel-twin, liquid-cooled, DOHC 250cc unit with 8-valve and will be mated to a six-speed transmission. Though the engine block is identical, Kawasaki have detuned the engine slightly and power figure stands at 32PS @ 11,000rpm, while torque has been hiked to 21Nm @ 9,000rpm to suit the street bike characteristics of the bike

Visually, the bike looks like a shrunken version of the Z-800, which works in favour of the bike. The sharp lines on the tank and at the rear give the bike an aggressive stance and the compact headlight adds more character to the overall design. Apart from the engine, the z250 shares its frame, instrumentation console, front forks and rear suspension set-up with its faired sibling. In theme with the street bike design, the ergonomics of the bike have been altered for a more upright riding position.

 

Kawasaki has priced the Z250 at Rs 2.6 lakh in Indonesia and if they are successful in pricing it similarly in our country, they’ll have a serious contender to take on the up-coming KTM 390 Duke and the naked version of the Hyosung GT250R.
