Recently, the 2020 Kawasaki Ninja 400 was introduced in Japan. However, our focus here is on another motorcycle that was launched alongside the aforementioned model. Called simply the 2020 Kawasaki Ninja 250, the quarter-litre supersports contender has been priced at JPY 6,42,600 (Rs 4.19 lakh) and is available even in a KRT Edition guise. The new model is produced in Thailand and will be available to buyers from next month.

The 2020 Kawasaki Ninja 250 gets a slew of cosmetic updates for a freshened-up look but carries overall its mechanicals from the outgoing version. Like its 400cc sibling, the Ninja 250 is available in ‘Metallic Spark Black/Metallic Matte Graphite Grey’ and ‘Pearl Blizzard White/Metallic Spark Black’ paint options. The KRT Edition of the Ninja 250 looks the same as the KRT Edition of the Ninja 400, with the only disparities rising from new decals and a different end-can.

Powering the 2020 Kawasaki Ninja 250 is a 248cc, parallel-twin, DOHC engine that benefits from fuel injection and liquid cooling. The motor comes mated to a 6-speed transmission. It outputs a maximum power of 37 PS and a peak torque of 23 Nm. Ninja 300, on the other hand, offers 39 PS and 27 Nm.
