What you see here are allegedly the pictures of the new, 2012 version of the Ninja 250R. The new colour scheme, supposedly a special edition has been spotted in Thailand, from where the bike is sent across the world. No changes have been made to the bodywork, engine, underpinnings or the mechanicals of the bike. Even the instrumentation has been left untouched, with that old-world analog speedo-tacho combo. However, the new colour scheme breaks the age-old monotony to some extent. There isn’t any clarity on whether these colours will be available for the Indian customers. As far as our knowledge goes, they won’t be. Lack of colour options is one of the biggest grouse of ninja prospective owners in India and offering a few more shades / graphics will not hurt.
The new colour scheme apart from the snazzy graphics and sticker work, reveal a new, blue detail above the Ninja logo on the front fairing. While there may be some of us who may not like too much of stickerwork on their bikes, there is no denying that the new graphics do add to the sporty character of the bike. What do you think?
