Baby Ninja Goes Single

Kawasaki has revealed yet another little Ninja for Asia by pulling the covers off a revised Ninja 250. Called the Ninja 250SL, this new Kwacker sports a single headlight as opposed to the split units seen on all modern-day Ninjas. But the big news is, it now has a single cylinder engine that displaces 249cc. The new 250 makes 27.6bhp, which is roughly four horses down on the twin-cylinder 250. However, at 22.64nm, the SL’s motor produces a little more torque. The motor is wrapped in an all-new steel trellis frame, which according to Kawasaki, will bless the SL with great flickability. The suspension consists of a 37mm telescopic front fork, teamed with a five-way adjustable ‘UniTrak’ rear monoshock. Stopping power is provided by disc brakes front and back, with the option of equipping the Mono with what Kawasaki says is the smallest ABS unit in the world. It has been fitted with wheels similar to the ones on the 250 and the 300, but here tyres are narrower and lighter. Overall, the SL’s gotten rid of 20kgs of weight; it now weighs just 151kgs. So while the Mono doesn’t make as much power, it makes up for that shortcoming with a substantial reduction in weight.

The bike was recently unveiled in Indonesia. No word yet on whether Kawasaki intends to bring this bike to other markets.
