Kawasaki has showcased their new quarter-litre offering the Ninja 250 at the ongoing 2019 Gaikindo Indonesia International Auto Show (GIIAS). The quarter-litre offering takes its styling inspiration from the Ninja 400 which is already available for sale in India.

The braking duties of the motorcycle are handled by a single disc brake at both ends. The motorcycle is available with a dual-channel ABS as standard for the safety of the rider. The 2019 Ninja 250 is priced at Rp 75,500,000 while the KRT Edition retails at Rp 75,000,000.
