2014 Kawasaki Ninja RR Mono – 250cc Sportsbike | Specs & Pics

Kawasaki unveiled a new 250cc single cylinder sportsbike which is also known as 250SL in Indonesia. Less than a year ago Kawasaki replaced the 250 Ninja with the 300cc twin-cylinder Ninja. The new RR Mono, produces 28PS@9700rpm of power and 22.6Nm@8200rpm, a bit less on the power but more on the torque as compared to the parallel twin-cylinder version. But what’s more important is that the new Kawasaki will be much cheaper and affordable and could strike a balance between power and value for money.

Kawasaki claims the RR Mono can do a top speed of 153kmph and weighs around 151kg (kerb weight). It is fully faired like the Ninja300 but sports a single headlamp rather than the split headlamps which is a trademark of the Ninja. The dimensions measure 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 rear respectively. 

No confirm news about when this bike will be launched in India. Its biggest rival the Honda CBR250R has a price advantage or it since the CBR 250R is locally manufactured in India whereas the Ninja RR Mono 250 would have to be brought in India via the CKD (Completely Knocked Down) or the CBU (Completely Built Unit). The other competition for this Ninja would be the Yamaha R25, Pulsar 400SS and KTM Duke 390 on the price front. Ninja 300R is priced at around Rs 3.61 lakh ex-showroom Mumbai and exceeds 4 lakh once you calculate the on-road price.

As usual with any quarter-litre bike launched in India, its pricing plays a key part in its success. If priced aggressively between the price band of Rs. 2-3 lakhs, it is sure to fire the sales chart for Kawasaki in India. Watch out for this little beauty and shortlist it for your future bike purchase list.

Will you consider this bike, if it gets launched in India??
