Way back in July we had showed you the pictures of the new 2011 Kawsaki Ninja 250R. Now Kawasaki have unveiled the 2011 Ninja 250R at the EICMA 2010 show. Even with mounting pressure from Honda and others who are looking to grab their share from the market of this only ‘global’ street 250, this Kwacker hasn’t changed much.
For its 2011 version, the Ninja 250R gets no mechanical changes, no redefinitions for the baby Ninja as of now. As we had told you earlier, the only changes made to the bike are new colours and graphics scheme, which to be very honest isn’t something very cool. The engine, the transmission, the suspension, the power and torque output – everything remains absolutely the same.
The Baby Ninja has been around for quite some time now internationally and it’s high time this Kwacker got its long overdue overhaul. Having said that we acknowledge that this little green machine is still the best 250 twin available in the world, and by a good margin. We are sure we’ll see the 2012 Ninja 250R concept / sketches very soon, especially with all the bikemakers scrambling to get a share of the 250cc pie with increasing international demand for small capacity bikes. You can read the review of the 2010 Kawasaki Ninja 250R here, and a very exhaustive USER REVIEW here.
