Kawasaki Motor Indonesia finally have officially released Ninja RR Mono/250SL, the successor of their own 2-stroke Ninja 150R, as the world premiere of this global model. The name Ninja RR Mono or the Ninja 250SL is used in different market with different names but, carries no changes of the bike internals except for the minor changes of the livery graphics on the exterior. Ninja RR Mono will have its production in Indonesia for the global market.

The body comes with slim compact trellis chassis frame for strength and sportier handling of the bike but able to keep it low cost for the masses. Also seen there is the same wheel design which is used for the Ninja 250 2-cylinder that shows 10-spoke Y-shape wheel.

Here is another view of the 10-spoke Y-shape wheel that is looking very nice.

Overall design are made to be as sporty as its predecessor, Ninja 150R, which is based on super sports category. This mean it will have lower steering position for the rider to hug the tank and slips into the air bubble of the bike to avoid the wind.

As predicted, the engine comes from the KLX250 which is an engine from an expensive bike. This 1-cylinder 250cc engine are able to push out 28hp which is only less than 4hp compared to 250cc 2-cylinder engine of Ninja 250 at 32hp!

This could be a great engine that provide almost instant torque from low RPM and light enough to take it to the max RPM limit. Powerful, lightweight and torquey. But, what about its sound?

Kawasaki still adopts the hot air radiator deflector to deflect the heat away from the riders feet just like the way it is implemented on the Ninja 250 and the Z250.

Another interesting aspect of this bike is the used of Uni-Trak suspension that is identical to what racing bike uses. Honda have implemented the similar suspension setup with the name Prolink which is put on Honda CB150R Streetfire and CBR250R. Whether Unitrak or Prolink, this setup provide a better feel of the bike and improves the handling as the suspension can work nicely whether in low or high speed.

Kawasaki hasn’t left out the design of the meter to be modernised along with the modern looks of the bike. The meter cluster is luxurious and tasteful enough for modern rider. There is the big speed speedometer display. Above it is the rev counter. Clock, trip meter and fuel capacity indicator are also there too. On the sides there is battery fault, high beam, EFI fault, ABS and oil pressure indicator. It is a very informative meter cluster indeed. It can be further improved if they decide to put the gear indicator into it. The implementation of the gear indicator on the Suzuki GSX-R1000 is the best I have ever seen.

Modern bike needs modern technologies and this Ninja RR Mono comes with ABS brake system to aid the handling of the bike in difficult conditions. The brake comes with 2-piston caliper single disc brake system for the front and also 2-piston caliper disc brake system for the rear.

Kawasaki Motors Indonesia also prepared official optional parts like this windshield visor to keep the rider in the air bubble and avoid the wind easily.

Also optional, is this rear pillion seat cover to make the 250SL feels racier and sportier than the same bike on the side.

Other than the usual plain colours, the Ninja RR Mono also comes in special livery graphics design, like the one above, in yellow with black and speed lines on the side fairing.

As of the title, Kawasaki Motors Indonesia replace the Ninja 150R 2-stroke with this bike Ninja RR Mono 4-stroke engine. In Malaysia, we heard rumors that Kawasaki Bajaj 200NS will replace the Ninja KRR-150ZX but tmcblog reports that this Ninja 250SL is a global model that will be exported to Thailand, Malaysia and the Asean market first before the rest of the world. If this Ninja 250SL and Bajaj Pulsar 200NS marketed in Malaysia at the same time, I’ll choose Ninja 250SL straightaway without thinking twice.
