Renowned Japanese bike maker Kawasaki has unveiled a baby Z1000 at the ongoing Tokyo Motor Show. The Kawaski Z250 is basically a quarter litre variant of the new Z1000 and is likely to go on sale in European market in January 2014.
The Z250 looks much like the bigger litre-class sibling, which means that akin to the big brother, the Z250 impresses with its sharp and edgy naked streetbike styling. The Kawasaki Z250 seems to borrow its end can from the new Kawaskai Ninja 300. The wheels to seem to have been borrowed from other Kwackers in the product portfolio.
The new Kawasaki Z250 is powered by a 249cc, parallel-twin, liquid-cooled four-stroke engine that benefits from fuel injection. Power figures haven’t been revealed yet but we expect the max power output to be in the region of 35PS.
The new Kawasaki Z250 is built on a diamond type steel frame and has a telescopic fork arrangement at front, along with a monoshock at the rear. The bike boasts of a rectangular section swingarm. The new Kawasaki Z250 gets a single disc brake setup at both front and rear.
Earlier this month, it emerged that the bike maker intends to bring the Z1000 to India. Hence, it become even more probable that the new Kawasaki Z250 too is headed to us. While no official word regarding Kawasaki Z250 India launch has emerged yet, we won’t be surprised to see the latest Kwacker greet us at the fast approaching 2014 Indian Auto Expo, which will be held in February 2014.
