The Kawasaki Ninja 250 should need no introduction. We all roughly have this idea of a mean green machine but in truth, the Kawasaki lineup is an unholy mishmash. Currently, the Ninja 250 being sold in the Malaysian market is the previous gen from 2017. The new gen is yet to be launched and promises a completely reworked Ninja 400 based chassis and 39 hp of power. These upgrades have become necessary from the onslaught of the Austrians and the Germans that are now focusing more on markets outside Europe. Yet the Ninja 250 continues to be one of the best bikes for someone who wants to ride something bigger while still having just a motorcycle license. So just how good is this bike?


Yamaha’s little ninja borrows many cues from the Ninja ZX-10R and he ZX-6R. The split multi-reflector headlight, fairing and the slim tail section all remind of Kawasaki’s bigger bikes. The tail section is especially slim because of the integrated grab handles. The scoops in the fairing look like they come straight from the ZX-14R. But not just in form either. Like the ZX-14R, they direct the flow of the hot engine air away from the rider’s legs. The windshield is large and should be practical at high speeds. Mounted using just the mirror mounts, it looks as if it floats above the front. Its dimensions are 2010 (L) X 715 (W) X 1110 (H) mm. The wheel base is much compact than the length at 1400 mm. Ground clearance is practical at 140 mm. The 785 mm high seat may not favor smaller builds. But the slimmer seat in the front should make reaching the ground easier. There are 17”, ten Y spoke wheels at front and rear. The tires are 110/70 54S in the front and 140/70 66S on the rear. The instrument cluster is a semicircular analog tachometer surrounded by various indicators along with a digital display showing trip meter, clock, speedometer and fuel gauge.   

Ride & Handling

Right from the seating position itself, you can tell that this bike has some serious ambitions when it comes to handling. The rider will be tilted towards the front with the weight only slightly resting on the wrists. The knees rode high and may come into contact with the knees for taller riders. For taller riders then, the seating is almost too compact. There is a 37 mm diameter telescopic front forks setup in the front and a gas charged shock in the rear, which is 5 way adjustable for preload. The bike is nimble handler despite its 172 kg weight. The stiff diamond frame chassis contributes largely to this. The suspension itself is geared towards providing comfort in city driving and stiffness while driven hard.  

Engine & Fuel Consumption

The Kawasaki Ninja 250 uses a 250 cc liquid-cooled fuel injected DOHC 8 valve parallel twin. It is capable of producing 32hp at 11000 rpm and 21 Nm of torque at 10000 rpm. The engine uses a dual throttle valve for linear power delivery and more power along with better mileage. The bike comes with an economic ride indicator and achieves good fuel economy numbers of 45 kmpl. The engine is mounted on rubber pads and therefore reduces vibrations felt on the handlebars. The bike is also equipped with a slipper clutch and allows fast gear changes across the 6 gears. All these changes together lead to learner-friendlyly power delivery and output. So much so that riders will soon be itching to ride something with more power.

Braking & Safety

Braking duties are relegated to a single 290 mm petal disc in the front and a single 220 mm petal disc in the rear with a dual piston caliper setup. The brakes are good and provide good feedback. But the lack of ABS in today’s market stings.
