New "baby" Ninja250

Discussion in 'Bike Reviews, Questions and Suggestions' at netrider.net.au started by Ushario, Jan 23, 2008.

  1. I have been trying to get info on this bike for a while now, as its release was annouced late last year. To my dismay, until recently, I hadn't been able to get more than "its going to come out in the first quarter of 08"

    Well, after a chat with a dealership, I can now tell you these things -

    The bike will cost $7400 on road.
    17 inch wheels and a "full" fairing (fairing LOOKS larger in pics than ZZR250s)

    -23.5KW
    -21.7NM
    -6 speed
    -Fuel capacity 18L
    -Dry weight 151kg.

    I can't upload any images atm due to the email I recieved (from the dealer) being in PDF format :mad:



    I think the bike looks awesome, far better than the ZZR from the pics.
    Basically the same engine, with a few tweaks I think...
    Hopefully anyone else having trouble finding info will find this useful, I will try to find a way to upload the file - if at all possible. Feel free to give hints! :grin:

  8. Very nice. Its the same bike, with a buttload of track orientation going into it - I'm guessing kawa has had it made up to get the racers interested in it. There is quite a big 250r racing scene in the states, this might be their attempt to get them interested in the new bike. I wonder if they'd make official aftermarket racing parts for it available...

  9. my google search came up fruitless, but I believe there is a list of track-focused dealership options boxes you can tick.

  14. thanks for that, I just called my local kawa dealer and they are $7400 ride away, 2 left in this shipment, then most likely a month wait or so.

    I only found out about these today through the forums, was going to get a '07 model zzr-250 but why pay the extra grand when I can get one of these little beauties.
