Perhaps the most talked about motorcycle from the Tokyo Motor Show, at least when it comes to fans and journalists, the Kawasaki Ninja ZX-25R was also the least talked about machine, in terms of manufacturers releasing details.
Kawasaki pulled the wraps off a four-cylinder 250cc sport bike, and then said...nothing.
In fact, the only official thing that Kawasaki has said about the motorcycle since its unveiling is to put out a press release reminding us that the Japanese brand has said nothing of substance about the new model.
No price has been mentioned. No marks on the calendar, or hints on which markets will get it first (or get it at all).
The release of the Kawasaki Ninja ZX-25R is a great example of why brands need to have an engaged hand on their public relations, because all hell can break loose when you let go of the wheel.
While Kawasaki is still dropping the ball on this, let us try and bring some order to this chaos, both with what we know as fact, and what we can reasonably discern from those facts.
