Kawasaki Nin-Ja 250

As with every new xe đạp, there’s no suchthing as a perfect machine so let’s get started with the limitations of theNin-Ja 250 first. First off, there are claims that the new Nin-Ja 250 hasvibrations from its handlebars & footpegs when ridden at higher speeds,something which is not inherent in the chạy thử unit we got from Kawasaki MotorsSdn Bhd (KMSB).

Secondly, the size of the outer fuel tankis larger but the amount of fuel it could hold underneath has been reduced tojust 15 liters from its predecessor’s 17-liter capathành phố. This is due to lớn the newNinja 250 sharing near identical specifications with its slightly biggersibling, the 2018 Nin-Ja 400 hence the larger looking tank.

Despite the larger outer tank, the new Nin-Ja 250 is actually lighter than its predecessor by 10kg, giving it a boost in the performance segment. With the limitations of the new Nin-Ja 250 out of the way, let’s see what the new bike could vì.

The engine/exhaust note is much crisper andsmoother than previous offering; with the increase in decibels at its top speedkhổng lồ be something most bikers would find it to lớn be less than optimum for theirpreference. But this super smooth noise màn chơi won’t bother them for long asthey would have sầu gotten rid of the stochồng muffler or even the entire exhaust pipewithin a week or so from purchase.

The Ninja 250’s instrumental speedometer isnow fully digital, as opposed khổng lồ the semi analogue-cum-digital version found onthe previous Mã Sản Phẩm. It is similar khổng lồ the type used in the existing Z650, Ninja650 & Z900 models, as well as the afore-mentioned Nin-Ja 400.

Despite carrying less fuel than its predecessor, the new Nin-Ja 250 consumes more or less the same amount when cruising at speeds of 125–160km/h – approximately 380km before needing to top-up. Of course, those riding the Nin-Ja at full throttle or attempted to lớn keep up with the bigger bikes, expect the consumption per full load lớn be around 260km or less!


Another improvement from the new Nin-Ja 250 is the gripping mặc định tyres fitted to lớn it – which are now Dunlop’s W-MAX GT601 instead of IRC’s Roadmaster. We took the new Ninja all the way khổng lồ Titi town, which is famous with bikers during weekover rides, thanks lớn the abundance of twisty segments on the main access road to reach there from Kuala Lumpur.

Both bike and tyres are able khổng lồ handle the twisty roads with ease, with the full bộ exhibiting no sign of breaking loose from the riding lines when fast cornering was performed. Once ride was resumed after the short break at Titi town, we decided khổng lồ ride all the way lớn old Karak town via twisty Route 9, which is approximately 91 km away.


Since we used a shortcut via Route N23,which bypassed Simpang Pertang, the entire journey was completed around 65minutes – some 31 minutes ahead of what the GPS had suggested. The towns alongthe route were Kampung Juntai, Taman Desa Permai, Simpang Durian, KampungMentaus, Kampung Rangoi, Simpang Tengh, Manchis, Kampung Ponson, Ladang Tuan,Kampung Telehy vọng & Kampung Sunsợi Perdak prior lớn reaching Karak itself.

These towns are mostly quiet without manyactivities so the Nin-Ja 250 was able to lớn cruise pass all of them easily at reducedtown speed riding. We had tried to lớn reach Karak town within the hour, whichcould have sầu been achieved had the ride not interrupted by two lorries plying theroute on weekdays.

Nevertheless, the Ninja 250 is nice lớn ride along the twisty Route 9, with the Dunlop tyres doing their job well, adding to the overall comfort of the entire ride, without breaking a sweat!

We started from KL with a tank full offuel, by the time we had reached Karak town, there’s still 2 levels of fuelavailable, và it had dropped another level by the time we reached KL via KarakHighway.

Riding the Ninja 250 around the city and urban areas is a breeze too as it is able lớn cruise very efficiently on 3rd/4th gears coupled with engine braking khổng lồ make riding enjoyable. Aý muốn the other improvements the new bike has over its predecessor is the use of dual LED headlights & the gear position indicator at the LCD speedometer.
