Z250 is the smallest and the cheapest sportbike from Kawasaki in India. It is a naked streetfighter and is the lightest offering in the Z lineup. Powered by a 250cc liquid-cooled DOHC parallel twin engine which produces 32 PS of power and 21 NM of torque, the Z250 is able to deliver a smooth and linear power across the entire rev-range. The styling is fantastic and takes inspiration from the bigger Z800, however, in essence, the majority of the bodywork is basically from the Ninja 250 without its fairing. The Z250 is offered without ABS in India.

  • Kawasaki Z250 Design and Build

    Kawasaki Z250

    Z250 is basically the naked version of the legendary Ninja 250. It has the same fuel tank, seats, tail section, exhaust, chassis and suspension but without the Ninja's front and side fairing. The headlight has a striking similarity with the Z800 and, on the face of it, the Z250 ends up looking like a smaller version of the same. The build quality and fit-n-finish of all parts is extremely impressive and the Z250 comes across as a premium motorcycle.

  • Kawasaki Z250 Riding Ergonomics

    Kawasaki Z250

    As a streetfighter, the Z250 puts the rider in a commanding, yet, a bit aggressive riding stance. However, since the rider sits almost upright, there's hardly any compromise on the comfort factor. All handlebar switches remain within easy reach as well. The suspension, though a bit firm, provides a plush ride. The 5-step preload adjustable rear monoshock offers basic leverage for enhancing the damping property.

  • Kawasaki Z250 Engine

    Kawasaki Z250

    Z250 is powered by a 249cc parallel twin liquid-cooled DOHC 8 valves engine which is same as in the Ninja 250. It is capable of producing 32 PS of power at 11,000 RPM and 21 NM of torque at 10,000 RPM making it a seemingly high-revving unit. The power delivery is linear making it a very rider-friendly engine.

  • Kawasaki Z250 Transmission

    Kawasaki Z250

    Z250 comes with a 6-speed transmission offering a slick action in both up and down direction. It is one of the best gearboxes in business along with a light a clutch pull which further contributes to the quality of the transmission.

  • Kawasaki Z250 Braking and Safety

    Z250 comes with a single 290 mm disc at the front and a 220 mm disc at the back. There's good initial bite and feedback from both discs, however, the absence of ABS can be felt in certain situations. The tyres are tubeless which means they do not deflate instantly in case of a puncture.

  • Kawasaki Z250 Mileage

    Z250 comes with a 17 litres fuel tank which is pretty good. Overall, around 450 km range can be expected from one full tank which is an impressive number.
