Kawasaki Ninja 250 SL

Lightweight handling

Sharp styling

Cheaper by comparison

Kawasaki Z 250

The Z series of Kawasaki is well known for the aggressive-looking motorcycles which fall under it. And the Z250, despite being one of the smallest one of the lot, has a big bike appeal to it. The razor-sharp design with new changes to headlamps and fuel tank make it look muscular and sharp.

Despite being an entry-level performance-oriented motorcycle, the Kawasaki Z250 is equipped with all the premium cosmetic features which are usually found in a flagship motorcycle. Things like all-LED headlamps and tail lamps as well as fully digital instrument console from the Z650 do lift up the appeal o of the Z250.

The four-stroke, liquid-cooled, fuel-injected, parallel-twin, 249cc engine of the Kawasaki Z250 is very impressive as far as performance and refinement is concerned. With 37PS of maximum power and 23Nm of peak torque on tap, the Kawasaki Z250 is one of the most powerful quarter-liter nakeds in the market right now.

Superbike ergonomics

Not very practical

No gear position indicator

Kawasaki Z 250

While the stiff suspension setup does aid the Kawasaki Z250 in handling department, it does take a small toll on the overall ride quality, which isn’t too plush on uneven tarmacs. Adding to it, the pillion seat too is small and a bit hard, making it a bit uncomfortable for pillion riders on longer rides.

While the fully digital instrument console on the Kawasaki Z250 looks fancy with its unique layout, it is not as convenient to read in bright daylight.

Compared to all the other twin-cylinder motorcycles, the Kawasaki Z250 is priced at quite a premium point, which when taking the competition into account, seems lesser value for money.
