2015 Kawasaki Ninja 250SL livery update in Japan

2015-Kawasaki-Ninja-250SL-002Kawasaki Heavy Industries in Japan has updated the livery of the popular Ninja 250SL. Still fresh, SL, refers to ‘ Slim & Lightweight’ or ‘Super Light’. This is correct as it is about 20kg lighter than the 2-cylinder Ninja 250. This Ninja 250SL comes with 1-cylinder engine that can push 20.6kW (29PS) @ 9,700RPM and 22.6Nm @ 8,200 RPM.

2014 Kawasaki Z250SL just launched today at eCity Hotel, Subang Jaya. The most important details that you all should know that the price is RM15,739 (basic price). That is lower than what we expect at RM16,700. Kawasaki Motors Malaysia really listens to you guys. So, get the bike before Hari Raya.

More news will be coming up soon and will update you guys about. UPDATED! Read below:

2014-Kawasaki-Z250SL-014

Z250SL comes with the same chassis as the Ninja 250SL which is the beautiful Trellis-like frame (in the tech specs it is called diamond type, but I’ll call it Trellis anyway). Compared to the supersports Ninja 250SL, the frame are now much more visible to the eyes as the bike is naked type that shows the muscle and the chassis under it. At 148 kg (Non-ABS model), the Z250SL is almost 20 kg lighter than the Z250. The light weight is a significant factor in the bike’s nimble handling.  Compared to the Ninja 250SL, this Z250SL is even lighter with 3kg difference.   Continue reading “2014 Kawasaki Z250SL launched in Malaysia – RM15,739 (basic price)”

Gallery: Pictures of 2014 Kawasaki 250SL and Z250SL at WSBK Sepang – 250SL RM17,689

Kawasaki-250SL-Z250SL-001.19

I’m sharing you these set of pictures of the 2014 Kawasaki 250SL and the recently launched the Z250SL. As you can see from the picture above, the yellow 250SL is signed by Tom Sykes and thus making it rare and I think should only be for display at Kawasaki’s office. This indeed a very interesting bike as I have asked many media friends who are really liked the bike. It is slim since it is single-cylinder, but still got enough power to get it to 157km/h . Kawasaki 250SL are rated at 28hp at 9,700RPM. In my humble opinion, this could be a daily bike for any riders that are looking for a comfortable ride with more speed can kapchai but still retains the slim profile. For a commute of about 80-100km daily, it should be a good bike for it. You get to manouvre in traffic and at the same time still able to speed off on long highways.

The gallery is below the jump, so, see it and drool!  Continue reading “Gallery: Pictures of 2014 Kawasaki 250SL and Z250SL at WSBK Sepang – 250SL RM17,689”
