Kawasaki Ninja 250R first ride review


"In terms of real world performance, the little Ninja engine is a scrapper. Far from sedate for a 250, Kawi claims internal mods increase low and mid-range pop. From what we recall of the old 250, this is true, but the extra juice in the lower revs isn't earth-shattering and more often than not a rider is wringing the Ninja's throttle to the stop, hovering near the indicated 13K redline. In fact, we can't recall a bike we rode so often pinned to full throttle since, well, the old Ninja 250. While no horsepower figures are released, spec sheet claims in torque show the new Kawi dipping 1.9 lb-ft in peak production at 16.2 lb-ft at 9500 rpm."
