The ZX-25R, as it is dubbed, is reported to be an inline-four powered 250cc motorcycle.
Japanese motorcycle manufacturer Kawasaki is working on relaunching its quarter-litre supersport motorcycle, the Ninja 250R. Though the official name and date of launch hasn’t been confirmed, new reports have revealed an estimate of its power figures.
The ZX-25R, as it is dubbed, is reported to be an inline-four powered, 250cc motorcycle. It has been reported that the engine makes close to 60 PS of maximum power. This gives it an 11 PS advantage over the current quarter-litre entrant of Kawasaki, the Ninja 400.
Though there have not been any confirmed reports, it is stated that the engine can also have a rev limit of 20,000 rpm. This takes it to the level of race-spec bikes or superbikes. It is expected that Kawasaki will design the engine with high-strength, lightweight materials which can sustain the high revs and speeds.
The ZX-25R is expected to carry forward the design language of the Ninja H2. Although it won’t be equipped with a supercharger, it can be equipped with LED headlamps, a digital instrument cluster and ride-by-wire.
