The new single-cylinder 250cc motorcycle from Kawasaki will take on the CBR250R and the upcoming Yamaha R25.
Kawasaki revealed the Ninja RR Mono (or the 250SL as it was rumored so far) in Indonesia today. As the name suggests, the Ninja RR Mono is powered by a liquid-cooled, single-cylinder, 249cc petrol engine that produces 28PS of power at 9700rpm and 22.6Nm of torque at 8200rpm. The engine is mated to a 6-speed gearbox and claims to achieve a top whack of 153 kmph with the bikes 151kg kerb weight.The Ninja RR Mono is a fully faired motorcycle and the silhouette is much similar to that of the Ninja 300R. However, the Ninja RR Mono features a single-pot headlight assembly, which looks out of place with Kawasakis current design philosophy. The bike has sleek dimensions measuring 1,935mm x 685mm x 1,075mm (length x width x height) with 100/80-17 and 130/70-17 section tyres at the front and back respectively. The Ninja RR Mono employs a single, 263mm petal disc at the front and a 193mm petal disc at the rear. Both the brakes feature dual-piston calipers.
