Kawasaki Ninja R 250 cc
The Ninja 250R’s aerodynamic bodywork and styling looks remarkably similar to the ZX-6R and ZX-10R, and that is purely not coincidental. There’s no “250” emblem on this big little 250, and that’s no mistake either.
But before we start talking about the Ninja’s sporting capability, let’s be clear about its mission. It is an entry-level sportbike, to be sure, but its upright handlebars and low 30.5-inch seat height make it a user-friendly all-rounder, not unlike Kawasaki’s larger parallel-Twin Ninjas.
As such, this bike is quite suitable for commuting, and we saw upwards of 50 mpg sipped from its comparatively large 4.8-gallon fuel tank, even while testing redline on a regular basis. Its fairing and windshield offer suitable protection from wind buffeting, and if we can be utterly biased for a moment, we think commuters also looking for a bit of weekend fun might be more satisfied with this 250 over, say, a comparable displacement scooter.
The Ninja R 250 is sane fun for the street. We won’t pretend to say it’s as adrenaline-inducing as a ZX-6R, but it didn't exactly put us to sleep either.
Acceleration is brisk, and gear changes come fast and crisply. If determined, a rider can twist its tail into the indicated red zone. Whether this is good policy or needed is another issue. As the dyno chart indicates, power progressively drops off past 11,000 rpm, so there’s not much point to flogging it. When the road gets twisty, cornering is predictable. Its suspension, with 4.7-inches front and 5.1-inches rear travel is reasonably compliant for riders up to 220 lbs or so. Much heavier riders, or those intending to trounce down rough roads, may wish for more adjustability.
