Technical Specs:

Engine:

  • DOHC 249cc Parallel Twin-cylinder Engine – Compact parallel-twin design offers good mass centralization for superior handling
  • Tuned to deliver smooth, step-free power with an emphasis on low and mid-range power for rider-friendly response
  • Pistons feature reinforced heads and strengthening in the pin boss area for increased durability
  • Thick piston (longitudinally) rings help prevent oil consumption
  • Combustion chamber design optimized to maximize combustion efficiency and reduce emissions
  • Ample high-rpm performance will please riders using the full range of the engine

Cylinder head

  • Intake and exhaust ports contribute to good off-idle response and smooth power delivery
  • Valve timing and lift designed for strong low and mid-range torque
  • Direct valve actuation helps ensure reliable high-rpm operability
  • Thin heads and stems on valves for reduced reciprocating weight

Fuel Injection

  • Fine-tuned fuel injection offers good power feel and low fuel consumption
  • Reduced mechanical noise
  • Automatic adjusting cam chain tensioner eliminates mechanical noise caused by a loose cam chain and reduces power-robbing friction loss
  • Eliminating mechanical noise allows the use of a freer flowing exhaust for a better performance
  • Complex construction with reinforcing ribs helps eliminate airbox reverberation and reduces intake noise
  • Air filter accessible from the side, for easy replacement

Exhaust system

  • 2-into-1 system contributes to the Ninja 250R’s low and mid-range torque and smooth, step-free power curve
  • Slightly upswept silencer extensively tested to determine chamber size, connecting pipe length and diameter to achieve least noise and most power
  • Meets strict emissions with dual catalyzers; one in the collector pipe and the other in the silencer
  • Using two catalyzers minimizes the power loss
  • Positioning the first catalyzer as close to the exhaust ports maximizes its efficiency as well

Liquid Cooling

  • Latest generation Denso radiator offers superior cooling with minimal space and weight
  • Ring-fan uses a quiet-running motor that also saves space
  • Fins on the lower side of the crankcase further helps cool the engine

Six-speed Transmission / Clutch

  • Involute splines reduce friction and backlash between gears and shafts for easier gear meshing and smooth shifting under power
  • Spring-type clutch damper reduces jerkiness at very low speeds and minimizes shocks when rolling on and off the throttle for a smoother clutch feel
  • Paper-base friction plates help increase clutch durability

Chassis

  • Sturdy and durable diamond-style frame of thick-walled steel tubing offers confidence-inspiring stability at both high and low speeds
  • Beefy swingarm bracket contributes to the frame’s rigidity and helps achieve an ideal chassis stiffness balance
  • Square-tube swingarm with a 60 x 30mm cross-section further adds to rigidity

Suspension

  • 37mm telescopic front fork with firm settings contribute to the Ninja 250R’s smooth, stable handling and enhanced ride control
  • UNI-TRAK® rear suspension complements the rigid frame and provides great road holding ability
  • Rear shock features 5-way adjustable preload, enabling ride height to be maintained whether riding solo or with a passenger

Wheels

  • Features 17” wheels like its larger supersport brothers
  • Low-profile sportbike tires on wide rims contribute to its easy, neutral handling at low speeds

Brakes

  • Large-diameter, 290mm front petal disc and a balanced action two-piston caliper offer excellent braking performance and a natural, direct feeling at the lever
  • Two-piston caliper grips the rear 220mm petal disc

Ergonomics

  • Natural riding position with slightly forward-slanting seat and wide, raised handlebars

Bodywork

  • Styling, fit and finish of striking full-fairing bodywork match its Ninja supersport siblings
  • Aggressive dual-lamp headlight design, slim tail cowl and separate seats further enhance the supersport look
  • Front cowling and windscreen offer the rider a substantial amount of wind protection
  • Two helmet holders conveniently located under the rear seat
  • Under-seat storage can hold a U-lock or similar device
  • Two hooks under the tail and the rear passenger pegs provide anchor points for securing items to the rear of the bike

Instrumentation

  • Instrument panel features an easy-to-read, large-face analog speedometer along with an analog tachometer, odometer, trip meter, fuel gauge and warning lights
