Recent Updates of Kawasaki Ninja 250 2018

Earlier this year, in July, Kawasaki Malaysia launched the 2018 Ninja 250. This new model priced at RM 23,071 came as a replacement to the previous-gen Ninja 250 and Ninja 250 SL. The new model comes with an updated quarter-litre formula that combines modern styling and new motor. The all-new Kawasaki Ninja 250 houses a 249cc parallel-twin liquid-cooled engine that generates 39 hp at 12,500 rpm of power and 21 Nm at 10,000 rpm torque. The power is transferred to the wheels via a six-speed gearbox. The bike gets bigger brake disc - 310 mm at the front and 220 mm at the rear. As for the suspension setup, the front gets a beefed up non-adjustable 41 mm telescopic forks, while the rear receives a pre-load adjustable monoshock. The seat height is now 30 mm taller at 785 mm. With all things increasing, it is the fuel tank capacity and weight that’s gone under diet. With the former reduced to 14-litre (from 17-litre) and later 167 kg (from 172 kg)

The all-new Ninja 250 is available in two color tones - Pearl Solar Yellow /Pearl Storm Grey/ Ebony and Passion Red/Metallic Flat Spark Black.

The 2018 Kawasaki Ninja 250 is one of the latest additions from the company in the Malaysian market. And it replaces the earlier Ninja 250 and the 250SL. It bears a higher craze among the enthusiasts due to the great updates it brings over the model it replaces.

And indeed so, launched at the 2018 Art of Speed in July, the new Ninja 250 has a huge upgrade on its engine over the previous model. And needless to say, the Japanese two-wheeler is focusing on making the motorcycle more and more competitive each day and things start getting hotter with this baby Ninja. The price starts at around RM 23,000.


The Ninja series from Kawasaki has always been a head turner, and so is this baby, the Ninja 250. It has its styling taken from the flagship Ninja H2 and gets great attention for its large bodywork and detailing. The fit and finishing are top class too.

The front section is sharp and the same can be witnessed on the chiselled full fairing and the twin LED headlamps too. The information console is the same as the one that we see on the Ninja 650 and imparts a very racy vibe. The analogue-digital console has a very tidy approach. The large dial for the tachometer will surely get the rider to want to rev the engine higher on the open roads.

Further, the fuel tank is well contoured, especially in the place where the rider locks his knees. This makes for a better handling and comfort.

Ride & Handling

The 2018 Kawasaki Ninja 250 is a great performer on the road, without a hint of doubt. The increase in the power delivery has seen the fun-to-ride parameter surge higher up. The engine now is much more responsive than it used to be. The peak power and torque come at a very high rev range, something that will thrill the riders who keep a tap on the tacho while riding.

The seat height isn’t the highest in the segment. In fact, the 795 mm height is good enough for all riders. The overall kerb weight of 164 kilograms is also quite manageable. The motorcycle has an abundant amount of torque available at lower revs. This makes the ride equally smooth while city commuting too.

Another interesting feature is the radiator fan cover, a setup that directs the engine heat away from any of the rider’s body parts. Hence, the discomfort level while idling in a halted traffic would be far lesser, besides keeping the engine bay cooler than otherwise.

Engine & Fuel Consumption

The 2018 upgrade on the Kawasaki Ninja 250 has seen the engine reworked and as a result, the power is bumped up a lot higher than what the previous model made. The 249 cc two-cylinder engine gets the liquid-cooling feature and four valves per cylinder.

The engine is now capable of churning out a maximum power of 39 PS at a whopping 12,500 rpm along with a peak torque of 23.5 Nm at 10,000 rpm. The produced power is transferred to the wheels via a 6-speed gear unit.

Braking & Safety

The 2018 Kawasaki Ninja 250 has great stopping power too. The force comes from a 310 mm disc brake up front while the rear wheel has 220 mm unit. Both the sides have dual-piston calipers for sharper feedback.

Apart from this, the thick and sticky wheels help to keep the motorcycle firmly planted on the turf, even when you try to test its limits. Be it under hard braking situations or while leaning at a good angle around a corner, the wheels would prevent mishap due to skidding.


The 2018 Kawasaki Ninja 250 is one of the most powerful fully-faired sports motorcycles in the quarter-litre segment. It competes directly against the Yamaha YZF R25. However, having a better engine performance is what takes it above the league of the rest. It really manages to keep up the name of the Ninja series, though being a little on the expensive side.

    I am very happy with it.

    I have been using public transport and cab to get to my office each day for the past few years. But, it was becoming very hectic as well costly. The money that I spend on traveling, had I saved it I would have got a car probably. I was pretty determined to get a car or bike this time. I Read More

    A great companion

    I am a fan of bikes and love riding them. Recently I change my old one for a Kawasaki Ninja 250 and I am very happy with the performance. I chose the black ebony colour and it looks amazing whenever I take it outside. This bike has several features like a digital fuel gauge, pillow seat, tachometer, stand alarm etc. Read More
