Is the Kawasaki Ninja ZX-25R – The Most Powerful 250cc Ever?

Fresh from the Tokyo Motor Show, Team Green has released truly a tantalizing machine, the Kawasaki Ninja ZX-25R.

I have to be honest, I didn’t think the internet rumors were true on this one, but I love being wrong about this model release.

We didn’t think we would ever again see the day, but here is a four-cylinder 250cc sport bike that by our quick math, could be the most powerful 250cc motorcycle ever made.

We have to hedge our bets a little on this one, since Kawasaki isn’t talking numbers just quite yet, but we can see that the machine clearly has an inline-four engine in its steel chassis.

But, what is really intriguing, the 2020 Kawasaki ZX-25R comes with a bevy of features that are normally only for big-displacement machines .

I am talking about Showa SFF-BP front forks, radial brakes, and a full electronics package with traction control, power modes, and a quickshifter.

Destined to be made in Indonesia, right alongside the powerful Kawasaki Ninja H2, the 2020 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-25R is said to be world model machine.

That should hopefully mean that this four-cylinder, four-stroke, sport bike of fury should be coming to the USA (fingers crossed) and Europe.

Presumably Kawasaki will talk details at a later date, but the rumor from Japan is that pricing could be around the $9,500 mark. Congratulations Kawasaki, you win this round!
