The Ninja ZX-25R’s In-Line Four engine – the key to its exhilarating riding impact – delivers performance that eclipses the rest of the 250cc field: power is a class-leading 36.8 kW (50 PS). It offers very linear power delivery, facilitating in-town operation (at low rpm), and it continues to climb well beyond the rev range of a 250cc Twin.The engine feels particularly good in the range from 10,000 to just over 17,000 rpm, making it ideal for sport or track riding.
Electronic Throttle Valves (ETV) not only provide smooth, natural engine response, they also facilitate the use of Kawasaki electronic rider support systems like traction control, selectable power modes and dual-direction quick-shifter that allow riders to feel more at one with their machine.
A trademark feature of Kawasaki’s Ninja ZX models, the centrally positioned Ram Air duct system, designed with feedback from the Ninja H2, improves filling efficiency, contributing to increased engine performance.
Race-inspired clutch technology offers both a back-torque limiting function as well as a light feel at the lever.
The Ninja ZX-25R’s intake and exhaust notes were carefully crafted to add to the exhilarating experience of piloting a high-performance Kawasaki In-Line Four.
Kawasaki’s compact new 249.8 cc liquid-cooled DOHC In-Line Four engine is the only one of its kind in the 250cc class. Developed with feedback from other Ninja ZX models, the high-performance engine offers class-leading power and a rev-range that extends beyond 17,000 rpm.
Key chassis dimensions (centre of gravity position, swingarm pivot position, engine axis positions, caster angle, etc) were inspired by Kawasaki’s World Superbike Ninja ZX-10RR racer, bringing WSBK chassis design thinking to the 250cc class.
Designed using Kawasaki’s advanced dynamic rigidity analysis, the lightweight trellis frame delivers the required balance of strength and chassis flex to achieve the Ninja ZX-25R’s nimble supersport-style handling. The long-style arched-design swingarm delivers the required balance of rigidity and flex, while enabling the short silencer to be positioned more centrally (benefitting mass centralisation) and contributing to stylish, sporty looks.
The Ninja ZX-25R’s ø37 mm inverted fork uses SFF-BP (Separate Function Fork – Big Piston) internals. Combining the concepts of Showa SFF and BPF, this advanced fork offers both racetrack performance and everyday usability. At the rear, Horizontal Back-link rear suspension offers a progressive character that contributes to the bike’s supersport-style handling. Both make their debut in the 250cc class.
Large-diameter front disc gripped by a radial-mount monobloc caliper and complemented by a large-diameter rear disc offer strong stopping power and deliver superb brake touch, helping riders set precise corner speeds on the track and facilitating control when navigating city traffic.
Dunlop GPR300 radial tyres offer light weight, excellent grip in a variety of conditions, and contribute to both agile handling and riding comfort.
Naturally aggressive riding position puts the rider in a position to take full advantage of the Ninja ZX-25R’s nimble supersport-style handling. The fuel tank feels slim between the rider’s legs, promoting good contact with the bike. The shape of the firm seat cushion facilitates rider weight shift during sport or track riding, and allows riders to spend long hours in the saddle.
While the Ninja ZX-25R offers easy manoeuvrability when riding in town, its high-level supersport handling character becomes apparent when sport or track riding. The Ninja ZX-25R behaves similarly to the Ninja ZX-10R and Ninja ZX-6R on corner entry. When fully banked through a corner on the track, the high level of composure and excellent feedback that allows riders to feel connected to the ground are confidence-inspiring, enabling them to explore limits.
A choice of Full Power or Low Power modes allows riders to set power delivery to suit preference and conditions. Full Power allows riders to enjoy the unadulterated performance of the In-Line Four engine. Low Power prioritises manageability, offering power delivery and throttle response optimised for less than perfect weather and/or road conditions.
Allowing riders to take even greater advantage of the Ninja ZX-25R’s exhilarating engine character, the quick shifter – a first for the 250cc class – enables clutchless upshifts and downshifts for seamless acceleration and quick and easy deceleration. Further, when riding in the city, not having to use the clutch repeatedly greatly contributes to rider comfort.
The Ninja ZX-25R is the first 250cc model to feature traction control. Kawasaki's advanced system provides both enhanced sport riding performance and the peace of mind under certain conditions to negotiate low-traction surfaces with confidence. Three rider-selectable modes offer progressively greater levels of intrusion to suit the riding situation and rider preference.
Twin LED headlights, each featuring low and high beam as well as a position lamp, help the Ninja ZX-25R stand out while providing excellent illumination. LED taillight inspired by the Ninja ZX-10R adds a sophisticated, high-grade touch to the rear of the bike.
Sophisticated instrument design features a large analogue tachometer flanked by warning lamps on one side, and a gear position indicator and multi-function LCD screen on the other.
In addition to original colour and graphics (and in some cases a coloured frame), Special Edition ABS models are equipped with a number of accessories fit standard: Dual-direction KQS, pillion seat cover, smoked windshield, frame sliders, and wheel rim tape.
Befitting the most powerful machine in the 250cc class, the Ninja ZX-25R’s aggressive Ninja styling exudes a fierce aura of restrained power and explosive action.
