Kawasaki Philippines has announced the arrival of the new Ninja ZX-25R on Philippine shores. Launched via the Kawasaki Leisure Bikes Facebook page, the new sport bike is powered by a 250cc, DOHC, in-line-four, 16-valve engine that screams when revved up to 20,000rpm—hence the nickname.
Kawasaki Motors first announced the Ninja ZX-25R’s comeback during the 2019 Tokyo Motor Show. It is now equipped with awesome features once exclusive to its bigger siblings, like a 37mm Showa SFF-BP inverted front fork and a newly designed chassis based on the orientation of the Ninja ZX-10R and Ninja ZX-10RR.
Other high-performance features include 310mm front disc brakes with four-piston calipers, electronic throttle valves, power-mode selector, traction control, assist and slipper clutch, quick shifter, economical riding indicator, and engine immobilizer.
A special-edition variant, the Ninja ZX-25R is offered in two color schemes: Candy Plasma Blue and Kawasaki Lime Green, and its suggested retail price sits at P410,000.
The original ZX-25R saw fierce battle in the ’80s on the streets and on the track in the compact sport bike category. Its rivals included the Yamaha FZR250R, the Honda CBR250R, the Kawasaki ZXR 250, and the Suzuki GSX-R250. However, tighetning emissions policies worldwide forced these iconic 250cc warriors into retirement.
