2010 Kawasaki Ninja 250R Fuel Injection Brochure in Malaysia

2010 Kawasaki Ninja 250R Fuel Injection

With the upcoming launch of Honda CBR-250R in mid February 2011, there are many 250cc bike that can be considered and Kawasaki Ninja 250R is a force to reckon with.

Comparing this bike with Honda CBR-250R, I have found that the Ninja is better in terms of specs. Ninja got 2-cylinder engine that can provide good engine feel, while CBR got the single cylinder engine which is good for fuel economy and good torque. Also, single displacement engine have much fewer parts and therefore, easier to maintain all along its lifetime. Single cylinder engine sometime also called ‘Big Bang’ engine. One of the largest single cylinder engine that I know is Aprillia Pegaso 650.

Kawasaki Ninja 250R FI is recently launched at GTMax Motor in Shah Alam. The previous model of this bike is carburetted. Since the new edition equipped with FI system,  fuel-efficiency can further be upgraded and also you don’t have to pull choke everytime you want to start the bike in the morning since the FI system takes control all of that.

Maybe this news is not much related to underbone bikes, but, please don’t be prejudice and hate all the superbikes. It is there for all of us to enjoy the ride. I’ll continue to write more about underbone bikes as that is my greatest passion.

Price is at MYR20,900 as I asked the salesman at GTMax.
